Broadway Digital Lotteries

It’s expensive to go the theatre in New York.  I saw The Phantom of the Opera on Friday night, in a seat that was one row from the back of the theatre, and it cost $75 (57 GBP, 7,600 JPY).  Since I can’t afford to see every show I would like to watch I have been entering the various digital lotteries that are available.  It would be amazing to win the opportunity to buy reduced tickets for Hamilton, but I have not been that lucky.  I did, however, win the opportunity to purchase $35 tickets for The Crucible tonight.  The seats should be much better than The Phantoms ones, as they are in the most expensive section.  Without the lottery it would have cost between $149 – $189 for the seats.  I’m really looking forward to seeing Ciarán Hinds as the Deputy Governor, and Saoirse Ronan as Abigail Williams.

    If you’re in the mood for something different…back in April we took the kids to an off-broadway showing of the Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe (When I say off broadway, not very far off broadway – you can see the small theatre it’s showing at from the Les Mis entrance.) It was literally a two person show with maybe four or five props – and we enjoyed it immensely. Next showing Saturday 11am, $35 a head.

    That looks interesting. Unfortunately it won’t fit into our schedule, but thanks for the suggestion. I didn’t really look into off-broadway plays and we’ve probably missed out because of that.
