With thirty-nine venue on Broadway selling Broadway tickets for the hottest musicals and plays in the world getting seats can be a challenge. There are always a few productions playing, which have the big Hollywood names and hype which make the demand extremely high. For those that missed the chance to book seats' months in advance and now looking forward to seeing a popular sold out show it would seem the only way is to shell out tons of extra dough. Here are some tips for getting tickets last minute that may help you not only get in but save some money along the way.

First, there are many great online Broadway ticket guides that may help you find a great deal. Even the most popular musicals and plays in New York City have slow times or periods. Most productions will offer discounts in order to fill the theater. Locate these online theater guides and see if they have any discount codes available for the show you want to see. For the popular shows, these will not be for weekend show times most likely, but you may find a great deal for a mid-week show time. These discount codes which can be found online can provide up to a 60% discount off of face value prices making them well worth looking into.

Also, try to catch a matinee and especially during the week. The majority of local New Yorker's will catch shows on the weekends and evening so early mid-week show times are very slow for Broadway productions. These are the likely times to get deals right from the box office as they may be running promotions. Even if a matinee show is sold out the secondary ticket market prices will be much less expensive than if you tried to get seats for a Saturday evening show.

A last option for finding seats to apopular show last minute or getting deals on Broadway tickets for that musical or play you just have to see while in New York are to settle for standing room only or partial view seats. These are often available for even the biggest Broadway productions and can provide a discount of over 50% of a regular seat even for apopular show time such as a weekend evening performance. While SRO may not be what you are looking for partial view seating can also be a great deal. Often the limited view is extremely minor and not be a bother or even noticed throughout the show. Call the box office and see if they have any of these seats available for the show you want to see.

Of course the best method for getting deals on Broadway tickets or not having to pay over face value is to plan ahead or plan your trip to New York City around the show you want to see. While the biggest shows often sell out months in advance if you know when you will be in the city, and what you want to see you can get greatseats by calling ahead directly to the box office. Another tip for getting greatseats even last minute is to catch oneof the many great shows, which do not have all the hype behind them. Some of the best shows to see are the smaller ones which are not even selling out for a weekend evening performance, and you can catch an amazing little known show at face value just by walking up to the box office minutes before show time. With these tips, you should have no problem finding great seats to a great show and having a memorable night on The Great White Way.
