Your Guide to Broadway Tickets

Broadway is synonymous with dazzling performances, spectacular sets, and unforgettable stories that have graced its stages for centuries. A blend of history, iconic performers, and blockbuster shows makes it the world's premier theater destination. Bright lights, live music, and show-stopping performances—a trip to Broadway promises an unforgettable theater experience. As the mecca of American theater, New York's Broadway district offers premium entertainment from beloved musicals to riveting dramas. This guide will help you plan your Broadway getaway, from show schedules to ticket prices.

The Origins and History of Broadway Theater

Broadway refers to the theatrical performances staged in over 40 professional theaters in New York's Theater District. While situated along Broadway itself, the term "Broadway" applies to shows in the area regardless of location.

Humble Beginnings on the New York Stage

Theater arrived in New York as early as 1732, showcasing Shakespearean classics. By the mid-1800s, P.T. Barnum transformed entertainment with larger-than-life spectacles like circus and sideshow performers. The extravagant performances occurred in venues along Broadway like Niblo's Garden and later evolved into vaudeville shows.

The Birth of the Broadway Musical

In 1866, the first American musical comedy titled The Black Crook premiered at Niblo's Garden, marking Broadway's foray into original musicals. Operettas and revues continued pushing boundaries in the early 1900s. Show Boat (1927) was the first musical play with a cohesive plot, paving the way for integrated musicals like Oklahoma! (1943) and, ultimately, the modern Broadway musical.

Starlight and Stages: Broadway’s Notable Performers

Broadway has always been a magnet for global talent. It's seen its fair share of movie stars like James Franco in Of Mice and Men and Hugh Jackman in The River. However, the true stalwarts of Broadway include names that have become synonymous with the theater. Think Kristin Chenoweth, Sutton Foster, Andrew Rannells, Richard Chamberlain, and the legendary Julie Andrews. These stars, and many more, brave the demands of grueling schedules, sometimes delivering multiple daily performances.

Broadway Comes Into Its Own

By the 1900s, Broadway distinguished itself as America's theatre district. Establishing the Tony Awards in 1947 cemented Broadway's status by honoring outstanding achievements. Today, the Tonys recognize Broadway's newest hits and brightest stars annually. Venturing into New York's theater district, you're greeted by the grandeur of renowned venues like the Al Hirschfeld Theatre and the Booth Theatre. But did you know that Broadway's roots trace back to 1750? This epoch saw the rise of venues hosting Shakespearian plays, laying the foundation for today's entertainment juggernaut.

Planning Your Broadway Trip

Visiting New York? There's a Broadway show awaiting your applause every day. However, if you have a particular show in mind, a quick check on its running schedule is recommended. With preparation, you can craft a seamless, stress-free Broadway experience. Use these tips to choose shows, find hotels, and budget wisely.

Picking Shows Based on Your Interests

Research shows online to find productions that match your tastes. Broadway encompasses all genres from play revivals like Death of a Salesman to family favorites like Aladdin. Check show schedules ahead of time and read reviews.

Booking Tickets Directly or Through Third-Parties

You can purchase tickets directly through shows' websites or ticket sellers like Telecharge and Ticketmaster. For convenience, sites like BroadwayBox and TodayTix also offer tickets to multiple shows. Avoid street scalpers selling counterfeit tickets.

Budgeting for Your Broadway Adventure

Account for expenses like travel, hotels, tickets, and dining out. Ticket prices range widely based on seat location and demand, averaging around $150. Choose less popular show times to save. Look for ticket lotteries and rush tickets, too.

Selecting Accommodations Close By

Staying in Midtown near Times Square keeps you close to the theater district. Boutique hotels like the Algonquin or Lotte New York Palace offer charm and convenience. Or, opt for budget-friendly lodging further out and take the subway in.

Brushing Up on Broadway Etiquette

Broadway's hallmarks, like live orchestras and intimate theaters, create a truly immersive experience. Observe these etiquette tips to avoid distracting performers or fellow audience members:

  • Arrive early to settle in before showtime. Late seating disrupts.
  • Silence phones and avoid talking during performances.
  • Photography and recordings are strictly prohibited.
  • The dress code is neat and casual. Leave large bags and coats in coat check.
  • Give standing ovations when appropriate to show appreciation.
  • Minimize exits that can distract actors and audiences.

Audience decorum is essential. Keep those mobile phones powered down and immerse in the live performances. And for those wondering about those breaks in between? Expect one or two 10-minute intermissions, depending on the show's duration.

Awarding Excellence

The Tony Awards, inaugurated in 1947, celebrates the crème de la crème of Broadway. This annual event is more than just a ceremony; it reflects the theater’s evolving landscape.

Top Shows Lighting Up Broadway

Broadway shows offer everything from long-running classics to highly anticipated new works. When one thinks of Broadway, shows like Wicked, Cats, and Hamilton instantly come to mind. These productions and Hadestown, Dear Evan Hansen, and Aladdin continue to allure audiences. Holding the record for endurance is The Phantom of the Opera, which has captivated viewers since 1988. Whether you're mesmerized by the magic of The Lion King or spellbound by Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Broadway translates timeless tales from page and screen to stage. While many cities boast theatrical wonders, the authentic Broadway show remains a unique New York treasure. With theaters accommodating 500 seats or more, the magnanimity of the experience is unparalleled.

Let the Show Begin!

With an open mind and a sense of wonder, you will find Broadway magic. Surround yourself with world-class talent, music, and production value for an experience like no other. Use this guide to make the most of your Broadway visit. The curtains rise on your new favorite show—enjoy!

The Cost of Broadway Dreams: Examining Broadway Ticket Prices

As the bright lights of Broadway shine brightly, welcoming millions of visitors each year to the theater district, so too do the usually steep prices of coveted Broadway tickets, leaving many hopeful attendees priced out of their theater-going dreams. Though television programs like the Tony Awards showcase the magic that happens on Broadway stages to huge audiences, the cost of Broadway tickets themselves often serves as a barrier for many to actually make it to a Broadway theater in person. So what are the average Broadway ticket prices these days and how has pricing changed over time?

Broadway has long been known to command premium ticket pricing compared to other live performance events, especially for hit shows. But even as Broadway tickets have gotten increasingly expensive, the demand has not lessened. According to the Broadway League, the 2019-2020 season brought 14.77 million attendees to Broadway shows. The average paid admission in the 2019-2020 season was $117 per ticket, up from $103 just five seasons prior in 2014-2015. But for many of the most popular shows, getting a ticket often meant paying much more than the average price.

Tickets to Popular Musicals

For hit musicals like Hamilton and Wicked, standard ticket pricing frequently ranges from $149 and up. The best seats in the orchestra could cost anywhere from $299 to $550 per ticket for the most sought-after shows at their peak. The high cost of tickets to see Hamilton was particularly notable after the show's debut and during the height of its popularity, with resale market tickets going for as high as $1,150 according to some reports.

Producers defend the high prices by noting the high costs of staging Broadway shows in one of the most expensive cities in the world. Investments in Broadway shows have continued to increase over time with technological enhancements like complex sets and special effects. Top-tier talent and labor costs also factor into Broadway's hefty production expenses. Producers aim to price tickets as high as they can while still sustaining demand to recoup costs and generate profits to compensate investors.

The high prices often mean middle and working-class families get priced out of many Broadway shows. Some productions do offer discounted tickets through digital lotteries and other promotions, but availability is extremely limited. Youth and student rush ticket options offer other pathways to more affordable seats, but long lines often accompany the lower costs. As productions depend more heavily on tourists paying top dollar in an attempt to maximize revenues, average NYC residents find Broadway tickets increasingly unattainable for their budgets.

While Broadway remains a symbol of New York culture and the arts, the lofty prices appear here to stay for the most in-demand productions. For those bitten by the Broadway bug and willing to shell out the big bucks, the adage "the show must go on" still thankfully rings true on the Great White Way. But for many others lacking the funds, Broadway tickets and their rising prices will remain but a distant dream.
