Sometimes Broadway gets a bad reputation for being a little too out of reach for most, but getting tickets to a big-budget musical or play doesn’t have to break the bank. This is the best time of year to take advantage of some incredible ticket deals. Right now, you can get tickets to 8 of the hottest hits on Broadway, all under $50 a ticket. Bundle up and find some of the best deals you’ll find on Broadway all season long with the TodayTix app.
I have used this app before when I went to Joe’s Pub earlier this year to see the Black Light and it was clutch then because I got to see a production that I usually wouldn’t have sought out. And I also included it in the essential apps/ websites that every New Yorker needs, so of course, I would mention it again.
It’s very rare for a Broadway show to last a year on the Main Stem, but “Kinky Boots” has been going strong for more than five years with its inspiring message of acceptance and positivity. It’s retro “Queer Eye” meets “RuPaul’s Drag Race”. When the Lola comes to a small-town British shoe factory, she reinvigorated the family business with a plan to sell high heels for men. Score tickets to this show starting at $40.
Head Over Heels
Shakespeare and the Go-Go’s join forces in the Renaissance romp. With a book by “Avenue Q” Tony winner Jeff Whitty and Gwyneth Paltrow as a producer, this is definitely a show you won’t want to miss. You can find tickets for this show starting around $35.
Carole King’s story epitomizes girl power, and now badass super-villain fighting Supergirl, aka Melissa Benoist, is filling King’s shoes eight times a week. You will rock out to hits like “You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman” and “I Feel the Earth Move,” as you learn a little more about how King’s epic “Tapestry” album came to be. Tickets start around $49.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Buying tickets for the latest Harry Potter story can climb into the upper hundreds, but The Friday Forty is the best way to find $40 tickets to see this classic story. This two-part play explores what happens when Harry Potter becomes a father and his children go off to Hogwarts, as he navigates the perils and joys of parenting and a new wizarding generation. To score $40 tickets, enter The Friday Forty on the TodayTix app.
“Summer: The Donna Summer Musical” is the bio-musical about the tumultuous life of the queen of disco brings her biggest hits to stage with an all-female ensemble. Playing both female and male roles, all three leading ladies take on the titular role. You’ll love to love this musical with tickets from just $44.
Broadway’s second longest running show is still going strong at the Ambassador Theatre, and you can see this Kander and Ebb classic now from just $43. The name on everybody’s lips is going to be Roxie, but you might just feel like your name is going to light up after saving so much on this show.
The Play That Goes Wrong
The madcap farce about a theater company desperately trying to stage their show through a series of pitfalls is certain to earn laughs from even your most miserly friend. This show won the 2015 Oliver Award for Best New Comedy. With $30 tickets available to this show, it’s sure to win over your wallet as well.
The Phantom of the Opera
The longest running hit on Broadway is still here to wow. This is the story of the phantom who haunts the Paris Opera and falls for a young chorus girl. Winning over audiences for decades, you can get tickets to this show starting at $45.
You won’t be disappointed when you select any of these Broadway hits. Maybe you can even enjoy dinner and drinks after the show with the money you saved on tickets. TodayTix is always offering discount Broadway tickets to new shows, so continue to check the app to see if you can score a deal to a show you’ve been dying to see.

Trudy, I’m so happy that I can leave a comment in the reader! Your affordable ticket idea is great. We have something like this here too, but without the Broadway part. With ticket prices being so expensive it’s nice to have a sensible choice. I hope all is well with you! 😊
I’m so happy your see your comment. Thank you for still trying! Thanks for compliment. I admit that price is a deterrent fir me and the app does helo make it accessible for me.
I always love ideas on how to make NYC more accessible and affordable! This post also reminds me that there are so many shows we’ve been dying to see, we need to be better about setting some time aside for that in 2019!
I get it. I really feel like I’m missing out on a lot after looking at what’s available for rush tickets.
I know. I can’t tell you how many times we said, “We have to go and see that!” and then promptly forgot all about it. Yeesh.
Always! We are spoiled for choice.
you have such amazing things so readily available for you there.
I know and I don’t get the chance to do even half of it.
We downloaded this based on your suggestion! Haven’t been able to use it yet, but thank you!!
Saw almost all these except “Kinky Boots.” That’s on my list. Also loved “Come From Away.”
I would love to see, “Come From Away”. You’re a big Broadway buff!
Awesome tip! We just paid A LOT more for tickets to Hamilton for this coming April.
Well, at least you can use the info for a future show.
$40 for either Harry Potter OR Kinky Boots??? No way!!! Never heard of this app but I am definitely saving this for whenever I make it to the Big Apple next!!!
The deals aren’t limited to NYC, they gave deals for 15 cities in total. You should check it out!
