An app for buying discounted Broadway tickets
So your Omaha cousins are in the city for the weekend, and while you certainly don’t mind treating them to a night at the theater, isn’t it always better to shave off a couple hundred bucks where you can?
You could be a total masochist and spend your Saturday waiting in the TKTS line. Or you could get the same discount on your phone with TodayTix.
Download the app to your iPhone (Android launching later this month), scroll through a list of deals for today or even later this week (which is a first in the cheap-seats market) and purchase right there.
Prices vary by the day and demand, but we’ve seen some discounts range from $32 off tickets to Once to $58 off Motown. Similar to the TKTS line, you can never really catch a break on blockbusters like Book of Mormon, Wicked or The Lion King. But you can still buy regular-priced seats to those on the app--a far cry from the clunky, archaic process on Ticketmaster and Telecharge.
If you need us, we’ll be personally stalking price drops for the new Les Mis.
