The Theater Lovers Guide To New York City

New York City is the place to be if you love the theater, whether it’s musical theater or not, you’re bound to find at least a couple of shows that you’ll want to see.
Broadway Theaters are known throughout the world for their amazing shows, famous cast and the level of entertainment they provide for approximately 12 million visitors from all over the world every single year.

No-one can visit New York City without catching at least one Broadway show, it’s such a tradition it’s almost become a legal requirement.

Broadway Theaters

You may be under the impression that there are a few Broadway theatres, but in fact there are as many as 40 of them.  The theaters are spread out over Broadway and the Lincoln Center, Manhattan and it’s thought that over $1 billion in ticket sales was taken in 2011.
There different shows playing all the time, so if there’s one or two that you particularly want to see, it’ll be a good idea to find out if they’re on while you’re in the neighborhood. Failing that you can always schedule your vacation to fit around the shows, trust me, it will be worth it.

Shows

The most popular shows at the time of writing are:
The Lion King, Wicked, Jersey Boys, The Book of Mormon, Chicago, Mamma Mia, Chaplin,
Evita, Mary Poppins and Rock of Ages.
Some Broadway shows have been around for years, but despite this, the crowds keep coming and it doesn’t surprise me because these are some of the best shows you’re ever likely to see.
Before you visit New York City, you should take a look at Broadway.com as this website will tell you pretty much all you need to know about the shows that are currently running and any forthcoming shows there might be too.

Prices

Prices of the shows vary and they can depend entirely on how many of you are going, whether you want to book a hotel nearby (You can buy hotel & show packages) what time of the year you want to go and where you want to sit.
At the time of writing if you want to see ‘Wicked’ for example, the price of a ticket in September 2012 is $167 for a seat near the orchestra, but prices vary depending on where in the theater you’re likely to sit. You can choose where you want to sit to a degree, but it’s good to know that you also have a choice as to how much you want to pay.

Booking Your Ticket

If you’re looking to book a ticket, please book in advance so you’re not disappointed. The website that I directed you to earlier (Broadway.com) will let you book your tickets months in advance. Some websites will offer you a discount, but it’s wise to make sure they are selling authentic Broadway show tickets before you part with your cash. If you want to risk it and try to get a cheaper ticket, you could always buy them from the box office just before the show, you are not however, guaranteed to get one.
Enjoy whatever shows you see, in the most professional theaters in the world. I’m sure you’ll want to keep coming back time and time again. See you in the ticket queue!
