You may already know about the deals to be had at the Broadway Show Booth TKTS, but we here at Free Tours By Foot love good deals, so here is another way to take in a show at a price you will like -- try your luck at getting tickets through Broadway Rush, Lottery and Standing Room Only
If you are prepared to get up early, or spend some time in a line, or stand during the show, you can often get discounted tickets to the majority of shows on Broadway. Rush and SRO tickets are sold on the day of the performance, usually as soon as the box office opens. Some policies are restricted to students and require valid student IDs. Expect to wait in line, but the money you'll save will be worth it. Note that many box offices only accept cash for rush and SRO tickets.
As of this post, shows such as Mama Mia, Jersey Boys, Chicago and so many others had RUSH & Lottery tickets for under $45! To see what is currently listed, see Rush-Lottery-and-Standing-Room-Only shows.
