Getting the Best Broadway Show Tickets

By Viator, October 2016

5 1113 Reviews | Add your review

So you've made it to the Big Apple and you've got your heart set on seeing a Broadway play. It's a quintessential New York experience. But with so many to choose from, how do you know which one to see? Let's be honest, musicals aren't for everybody. Here's a quick rundown of what to expect come showtime.

First things first - book tickets in advance if you want to see a particular Broadway production (or any show, really). Broadway is number one for a reason, and visitors and locals alike vie for prime tickets. If you're a last-minute man, however, fret not: the Viator app can hook you up with seats a mere 3 hours before the curtain comes up!

Good for Families

Disney classics like The Lion King, Aladdin and Cinderella are always a winning choice for families with young kids. The tikes will love following along with their favorite characters and songs while the parents appreciate the Broadway-caliber acting talent and set design.

Longest Running

They say that if you can make it in New York, then you can make it anywhere. In 'the city that never sleeps', you’ve got to earn your right to longevity. Shows like Wicked, Chicago, and Phantom of the Opera have rightfully earned their places on stage and routinely maintain 5-star reviews.

Newest Editions

You can count on finding tickets to the top Tony-nominated shows each year, along with a mix of revival performances and brand-spanking new productions. Check back often to see what's new on Broadway!
