There are seven ways to get discount Broadway tickets for NYC shows and they include Regular Price Tickets, Discount Code Tickets, Lottery Tickets, Standing Room Only Tickets, RUSH Tickets, Secondary Market Tickets and the TKTS Booth. The Broadway show list below contains all the current discount ticket offers available.
There are over 14 different types of tickets available to a live Broadway show. The main types are Regular Tickets at Face Value and Discount Code Tickets that are the cheapest options. On our website, we offer four different types of discount Broadway tickets and two non-discounted ticket options for NYC shows.
Regular Price Tickets (or face value tickets) are exactly what the name implies. They are regular, full priced, Broadway show tickets with no discount available. They are tickets from the official ticket source and are sold at a price set by Broadway show producers.
Discount Code Tickets are exclusive promotional offers that we provide that make Broadway tickets lower in price. On our Discount Broadway Tickets page, both Orchestra seats (ORCH) and Mezzanine seats (MEZZ) are listed and are the cheapest priced face value options for each of these tickets are shown..
These tickets have a discount ranging anywhere from 10% off to 70% off the standard face value of Broadway show tickets. Our members can use our proprietary discount codes to purchase these discount Broadway tickets. You can access all of these Broadway discount codes with a purchase of the Broadway ticket guide.
Another ticket option are Broadway Lottery Tickets which are, as the name says, a free lottery to win the right to buy low-priced Broadway tickets. Typically, people enter themselves into the lottery for free and are randomly selected to be able to buy these Broadway show tickets at a great discount. Lottery Tickets are typically the very cheapest way to see a live Broadway show, but people are not guaranteed to win and typically you must enter a few times to win.
Standing Room Only tickets are another cheap way to see a Broadway show, as they are a low-cost option for audience members who are willing to stand for the entirety of a performance. SRO tickets are usually only on the same day of the performance and when all other tickets are sold-out.
RUSH Tickets are the good way to get a seat if you wanted to see a live Broadway show tonight and you can line up at the last-minute. Rush tickets are only offered for Broadway shows on the same day of the performance and when the show is sold-out.
Secondary Market Tickets are tickets that are sold by ticket brokers who make a big profit on the re-sale of Broadway tickets. Ticket brokers are useful as a source in a few different cases; for popular Broadway shows, when ticket inventory is limited or for particularly busy times.
Sometimes, this ticket type may be the only option available. Typically, Secondary Market Tickets are not sold for a discount because the show tickets are already in high demand and brokers are looking to maximize returns.
Some of the most popular shows do not offer any discount Broadway tickets at all. This is simply because the show may be too popular already and there is no need to offer discounts to encourage people to go and see the show.
Conversely, some Broadway show producers actually offer all types of discount Broadway tickets. Producers often cherry-pick their discount types to figure out precisely which discounts are appropriate for their show and the demographic.
When deciding on ticket pricing, producers often take into account other show ticket prices, show revenue, PR and marketing feedback, overhead costs, word of mouth, and the other existing discount Broadway tickets that may be available in the market that they will need to compete with.

Broadway and Off-Broadway have roared back to life in New York. That's the good news; the bad news is that the ever-rising cost of tickets makes it hard to take full advantage of what the city's stages have to offer. But the situation is not as dire as it may seem: Discount Broadway tickets are everywhere, and modern technology makes it easier than ever to find cheap seats, even at the last minute. If you play your cards right, you can even score seats for sold-out hits like Hamilton. Here are the five best ways to get your hands on cheap Broadway tickets.
Great a resource as it is, TKTS has limitations: You have to wait there in person, often for a long time, and you can only get tickets on the day of the show (or the day before a matinee). Thankfully, the Internet provides alternatives. The popular TodayTix app lets you find discounted tickets on your mobile phone up to month in advance; discount deals are listed alongside tickets being sold at regular prices. Another reliable online source for cheap Broadway seats is New York Show Tickets; membership there costs about $5 per month. Good discounts can be also be found at BroadwayBox, TheaterMania, Playbill and GoldStar. Consider visiting all of these options and shopping around for the best bargain. And in January/February and September, you can avail yourself of the two-for-one deals offered through the Broadway Week program. (But remember: The usual online ticketing fees, generally $10 to $15 per ticket, tend to apply when you use these discounts, and that can bite into your savings.)
Most Broadway shows also now conduct digital lotteries on the morning of or the before each performance, either on their own or through TodayTix. But perhaps the most competitive of these lotteries are held weekly: the Hamilton lottery (which offers 46 $10 seats a day) and the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child lottery, both of which are now held once a week on Fridays. To find out which shows offer rush tickets and lotteries, consult the handy listings at Broadway on a Budget or Playbill (which offers both Broadway and Off Broadway guides). 781b155fdc
