Broadway Theater Tickets Don't Have to Cost an Arm and a Leg

A local Broadway Ticket Expert offers Amazing Ticket Deals

With so many places to consider shopping at for tickets to Broadway, Concerts and Sporting Events how does a consumer know where to turn to these days to get the best value for their hard earned money? A great question indeed.

I imagine I could just write this article and ask you to believe that our ticket agency, Applause Theater Service in New York City is the best choice to make to buy your tickets from. But today I often wonder if the average shopper really thinks they can possibly "trust" all the many marketing and advertising messages that seem to bombard all of us every day.

My personal suggestion when shopping for tickets is to consider shopping with local ticket experts in the area that the event takes place. It seems that the "local folks" often have a better handle on exactly what takes place in each of our own little market areas. For instance, even though my company Applause Theater Service can obtain tickets for you for special events like the Super Bowl or the NBA Playoffs, these tickets are not local New York tickets and we wouldn't really have the best access to these tickets.

But Broadway theater tickets are another story. It's what we do every minute of our working lives. Applause knows the Broadway market better than just about anyone in the Broadway ticketing industry. I'll give you a "for instance". Simply go to several different web sites for the tickets you may want or ask Google or maybe someone you know who might have a suggestion. My guess is after you do your "due diligence", that you unfortunately might be even more confused than ever. There is a reason for the confusion.

The ticket industry wants you to be confused. You see, after 31 years in the Broadway ticketing industry, I have seen the rise of "premium" or front row center high priced seating and also some discounting for some Broadway Shows that often do not sell out of all their inventory. If you're like me, chances are you might not want to "overpay" for premium seats when you can secure amazing seats at BELOW FACE VALUE prices from Applause.

So when I suggest you consider giving Applause a chance at sending your business our way, I guess I could simply market and advertise that Applause's prices are the best and that you should simply believe us. But instead, I would prefer you shop around. Then hopefully you'll consider calling Applause and allow us the opportunity to be of service.

In this economy most ticket shoppers are interested in obtaining the best seats at the best prices. A call to Applause will certainly satisfy your needs. The money we will save you with our BELOW FACE VALUE Broadway ticket deals as well as our personal service will be exactly what you want. And that is a personal guarantee I can make to you. No other licensed New York ticket agency can beat our BELOW FACE VALUE prices. And I challenge them to be able to match our extremely high level of service as well.

If you need premium tickets (front and center seats) you will pay the theaters high prices and a small service charge to Applause for our efforts. Still there are only a few ongoing sellout shows right now. They are Billy Elliot (winner of 10 Tony Awards in 2009), God of Carnage (3 Tony Awards in 2009), West Side Story ( a 2009 revival), and longer running shows like Wicked and Jersey Boys. But remember, you do not need premium seats when we can obtain a "best available" good orchestra or front mezzanine seat for you for half the price of a premium seat. Again most folks don't buy these expensive seats. Most do buy the "best available" seating.

Our ongoing promotion is a runaway hit these days. I'm talking about Applause's BELOW FACE VALUE deals below. We usually have around 20 or more great Broadway Shows to offer. Here's the current list of 22 shows:

39 Steps
9 to 5 The Musical
Accent on Youth
August:Osage County

Blithe Spirit
Guys and Dolls

For those of you that don't know the Applause staff very well we suggest calling us and asking us anything you want regarding Broadway and New York. You can also checkout our amazing web site if you like. We are very proud of our staff and the service we provide.

Thank you for your support of our company and the Broadway Theater. There's nothing like a live Broadway Show.

Have fun at the theater. Take care now.
