Broadway Theater Ticket Buying Tips

Applause Theater Service-New York City July 9, 2009

Here are my personal tips for obtaining affordable tickets for all the Broadway Shows in New York City.

1. First it might be a good start to search for a New York State licensed ticket agency to help you in your quest to find the best seats for the best shows at the very best prices. Applause Theater Service (our company) has been in business for nearly 22 years. Our NY State license #71AP1001029 is current and we are local experts on all the Broadway Shows playing.

2. Make sure the ticket company you contact can be reached by telephone as well as on-line. It's a good idea to make sure there is someone you can speak with "live" at the ticket company, then have a conversation so you can make a judgement as to whether or not you may want to do business with them. Talking with "real people" will help you with your decision making plans.

3. Check out the ticket companies web site to determine what their ticket returns, cancellation and exchange policies are. We don't recommend buying tickets unless you have your airline tickets and hotel accommodations first but we will try to hold seats for you until your plans are complete. This extra service is something that separates us from others in the ticket business.

4. Many of the Broadway Shows have Below Face Value ticket deals for some of their performances. Simply contact Applause in New York or check out the Below Face Value page on our web site. Simply put, we often can secure top priced seats for you at prices that are below the "usual printed price" on the tickets. The explanation is a simple one really. Some shows have been on longer than others and have excess inventory which they offer us at a discount. We then pass on savings to Applause customers, add a small service fee and get you amazing seats at discount prices.

There may be hundreds of web sites that seem to be selling tickets for Broadway. This makes it hard to know who to purchase from. Just make sure you know who you are dealing with, feel comfortable that the company is reputable and that you are being offered the best possible prices.

Applause Theater Service in New York City is one of the "local experts" for Broadway Theater. They are open seven days a week, 365 days a year. You can contact them at 212-307-7050 at their theater district in New York or toll free at 800-451-9930. They love talking about Broadway Theater in New York.
