Broadway (and Off-Broadway) Bargains!

January 23rd, 2014

For theater die-hards, there’s no better time to catch a show in New York City than during the cold winter months of January and February. Sure, you can pay top-dollar to watch Elphaba soar into the rafters of the Gershwin Theater in Wicked… or you can see a show that hasn’t been around for a decade and support the wildly eclectic theater season currently underway. Here are two options to score great seats at bottom dollar:
