While Broadway ticket prices have risen to astronomical levels in the past few years, if you're savvy, theater-going can certainly be affordable. How? Well, many theaters have adopted Student and General rush policies. All you have to do is go to the box office on the day of shows (Check the show's/theatre's website to see what time it opens so that you can get there early and increase your chances) and ask for rush tickets. Now, not all shows will have them: some shows are already sold out, some do "lottery", still others simply do not offer them. However, chances are that, if you're there early enough, you can get tickets for (mostly) any show (barring the REALLY popular ones - Wicked, Book of Mormon, Pippin. However, for those, you can always try the "lottery"! Not as likely, but definitely worth a shot. I had friends win BoM tickets first try.) For more info, check out the above website. It will outline whether a show has rush tickets, and how much they cost. Happy hunting!
