Image result for radio city christmas spectacular picsHeading to the Big Apple in the next few months? Well of course you are going to see a show or two while you are here right? Of course you are. The only question is what to see?

As we speak, there are twenty-nine shows playing on Broadway, with twenty more scheduled to open before the end of the season. Plus don't forget about Off-Broadway either, which is home to some of the most innovative and original shows that you will ever see.

Not only that, but we also have ballet, opera and of course everyone's favorite holiday show the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. You don't want to miss that do you? That's what's so great about New York. So many choices. Live theatre. There is nothing like it. Enjoy the fall everyone!

Customer Story

WickedToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of North Carolina. Charlotte to be exact. Last week, I received a call from a gentleman who was bringing his family to New York during the Thanksgiving holidays, and wanted to see a show while they were here.

Their choice? One of Broadway's biggest hits of all time. That's right, I'm talking about Wicked. So after finding out what he wanted to see, I asked him where he wanted to sit, and more importantly how much he wanted to spend. After all buying tickets for six people can be expensive.

Thankfully he had the New York Pass, which not only entitles them to discounts on theatre tickets, but discounts on museums, shops, and tours as well. In the end, I got them great seats in the Front Mezzanine, and at a price that was lower than they had seen on another site. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
