New York is the place to see a famous theater show. The famous Broadway street has at least 40 different theaters where you can find musicals and plays with sometimes great actors. Broadway shows such as The Lion King, Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Chicago and Miss Saigon often run for years and are still regularly sold out.
Buy cheap Broadway tickets
Tickets for musicals and theater performances can be purchased on the internet, such as on the Viator.com website. Here you will find an extensive range and often at competitive prices. But there are also much cheaper ways to get tickets. The TKTS booths sell tickets for the same day for half the price for many Broadway shows and the shows around Broadway. These are places that would otherwise remain empty and this makes viewing a show much more affordable.
