Post Ways to get Cheap Theatre Tickets
Hi Theatregoers!

I am just doing some research into ways to get cheap theatre tickets. I know that students and senior citizens get discounts, and you can get cheaper tickets if you go to previews as opposed to once the show has officially opened, but are there any other ways? All ideas are welcome!

Thank you. :)

Generally you can save a lot to buy seats in like the balcony and other places in the less expencive price groups off the theathre. Its also helps (at least in some contries) to choice weekdays instead off weekends where prices could be cut (for example german tour of Cats pk1 tickets was 100 euro in the weekends and 85 euro in other days.)

Also I know there is places on bway and west end that sells tickets to not so popular shows for half the price at the same day shows, so there is another chance to save money.

Anyone have this? How's it work?

Not that I'm in NYC that often, but it'd be nice to know beforehand on the few occasions I get there.

I know that Wicked does partial view on Broadway. Any other shows do this?

If you mean partial view seats it really depends on how the theathre is designed, some have such seats and some doesnt.
