As the famous writer, Tom Wolfe, said in the past: “culture just seems to be in the air, like part of the weather”. He was referring to the Big Apple, to the City that Never Sleeps, to the fascinating New York. To go to a musical in the Capital of the World is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime plan that you have to experience at least once. Don’t let the prices put you off because there are tricks to buy tickets and go to the theatre without spending a fortune. Take note: these wonderful places that offer these discounts are called TKTS and if you don’t believe it, take a look at this link and you’ll see. If you are already there, check where you can get free WiFi in New York 😉
They have three points of sale in New York, two in Manhattan (in the middle of Times Square and on South Street Seaport, in the shade of the new World Trade Centre) and one at the other side of the East River, in the trendiest district of Brooklyn. You’ll probably have to wait in a more than justified queue which is definitely worth it because the discounts can easily get you up to around 50% off the usual price. Yes, that’s right, you’ve read it correctly!
On the other hand, you can also buy your tickets for the theatre or a musical online via sites like this. It’s a good way to save without moving from the sofa!
Finally, as all good things come in threes, a third option is to go to the theatre on the day of the show and try your luck. Depending on the play that you want to see, you’ll manage to save a lot of money. That was your passport to a night that will make your hair stand on end. So you now you know, go and enjoy New York! And if you wish to go cycling, remember what we told you!
