How to obtain West Side Story tickets on Broadway-at Reasonable Prices too

Every time you hear people talking about buying tickets for Broadway Shows, it seems that people say that prices are ridiculously high today. This is especially true for sold out shows like West Side Story, now playing to raving audiences since its opening night reviews several weeks ago.

I loved West Side Story. You may remember this 50 plus year old show being one of the Broadway theater productions that led to innovative changes in a shows subject matter and choreography. Mr. Arthur Laurents, who originally wrote the book for West Side Story has returned as this revival's director as well. His original book still holds up well considering all the time that has passed. And the cast featuring Matt Cavanaugh, Karen Olivo and newcomer Josefina Scaglione as well as the entire supporting ensemble does a superb job at taking you back in time to this "Romeo and Juliet" love story.

Featured songs include "Tonight", "Somewhere", "America" and "I Feel Pretty". Three of the songs were translated into Spanish which seems very real and natural to those of us growing up in New York City. Some of the dialogue is in Spanish as well but not enough to be concerned that it wouldn't feel right to you sitting in the audience. Lin-Manuel Miranda the wonderful writer of the music and lyrics for In The Heights, another awesome Broadway Show currently playing on Broadway was the person who translated the songs into Spanish for this production of West Side Story. What a talent my friends.

Jerome Robbins choreography is some of the finest ever to appear on a Broadway stage. Mr. Robbins amazing choreography has been beautifully re-staged by Joey McKneely. You will enjoy watching this production of West Side Story.

Now getting back to the title of this blog- "How to obtain West Side Story tickets-at reasonable prices". It's simple really.

If you think this show might be something you want to see, you can make a simple call to Applause Theater Service, a local Broadway ticket expert that has been providing tickets to every show on Broadway for 21 years now. Applause is a New York State licensed ticket agency that offers an extremely personalized level of customer service as well as "reasonable prices for West Side Story and all Broadway theater.

Why pay high prices when you can talk to local experts, tap into their extensive inventory of West Side Story tickets, pay a reasonable service fee and get the tickets delivered right to your door. Could you ask for anything more?

Applause is open 7 days a week. These guys love talking about Broadway Shows. I almost forgot, they love to eat too so if you need some restaurant suggestions, just ask them where the good places to eat are. They often refer theater-goers to a fun street in the theater district called Restaurant Row. It's located on 46th Street between 8th Avenue and 9th Avenue, right in the heart of the theater district. Here's their web site. I've eaten at over a dozen of these places so call me personally if you need assistance.

Whatever you do, don't pay high prices for West Side Story or a place to eat before the theater. Contact a local company that would like to help you make your trip to Broadway, one to remember for a long time to come.

We hope to hear from you soon.
