Getting tickets for Broadway Shows

If you want to avoid paying full price for tickets to shows on and off Broadway and you don't want to queue up at the TKTS box office in Times Square, visit http://www.broadwaybox.com/.  They offer tickets at 25-50% off of the regular price and often have tickets for sold out shows. 

You can either book online and print out your tickets, or print out a coupon and get your discount when you buy tickets directly from the show box office.  I have got tickets from broadwaybox.com on many occasions and have always managed to get good seats.

If you sign up for their newsletter you will receive a daily email with all the best show offers available that day.  They also offer discounted tickets for many of the New York attractions and tours.

I have seen some great shows, I would highly recommend going to see Al Pacino in Shakespeare's 'The Merchant of Venice' at the Broadhurst Theatre, it was amazing. 

I also loved the play 'Gruesome Playground Injuries' at the Second Stage Theatre.  It is a very intimate theatre with brilliant acting from Jennifer Carpenter (from the TV show 'Dexter') and Pablo Schreiber (Tony award nominee) as the only cast members.

One I would avoid is 'Dracula' at the Little Shubert Theatre.  It was uncomfortable to watch as the acting was so bad and English accents were terrible!

If you have any recommendations for performances you have seen on or off Broadway I would love to hear from you.
