As the weather in New York City starts to get warmer, the amount of people wandering around the city streets will start to increase. With even more people in the streets, some more could be wandering into Broadway shows. The next few weeks of cold could be your best chance to get Broadway tickets before the price starts to rise due to increase in demand, especially for these top five shows.
1) 3/8/14 - Motown | Avg. Price: $402 | Get-in Price: $140
Motown the Musical tickets have been at the top of the Broadway charts for a while. Saturday’s performance is the most expensive show of the week at Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. It’s the only show of the week to have an average price above $400.
2) 3/4/14 - Kinky Boots | Avg. Price: $326 | Get-in Price: $122
Kinky Boots continues to be one of Broadway’s most in demand shows, but it’s surprising Tuesday night’s show is the most expensive of the week. Kinky Boots tickets, while having the second highest single-show average price, have the lowest get-in price of any top show this week.
3) 3/8/14 - Waiting for Godot | Avg. Price: $325 | Get-in Price: $215
No Man’s Land and Waiting for Godot is a double feature play starring Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Billy Crudup and Shuler Hensley playing different characters in both plays. Waiting for Godot tickets on Saturday night have the highest get-in price for any top show this week.
4) 3/9/14 - Cinderella | Avg. Price: $322 | Get-in Price: $147
Since Carly Rae Jepsen and Fran Drescher took over as Cinderella and the evil stepmother, respectively, Cinderella tickets have continue to skyrocket. Tickets for Sunday’s performance have gone up 26% over the past week to see these two in their limited engagement roles.
5) 3/9/14 - Wicked | Avg. Price: $311 | Get-in Price: $160
Wicked has long been one of the top performances on Broadway and it continues to be one of the best selling shows. Wicked tickets for Sunday at the Gershwin Theatre have the fifth-highest average price for the top performances of the week, but have the second-highest get-in price of the top five shows.
Luckily for Broadway fans, these performances happen multiples times per week and getting a relatively good deal on Broadway tickets can be easier for those with flexible times to attend the shows. Still, getting in before the spring weather is here could result in the best deals on the secondary market. Either way, these shows are always well worth the price of admission.
