You’re 27. Here Are Millions to Stage Your Musical.

The New York Times, Feb. 18, 2007

IT was late and cold, and outside the nightclub Pacha in far west Midtown a boyish-looking man in a suit and sneakers was walking up to the front doors. Inside, the club was crowded: an eight-piece Latin band was playing, people were dancing and drinking tequila cocktails; it was, as little as the scene may have looked it, an opening-night party for a new Off Broadway musical.

The young man approached the large bouncers out front. “Let me in,” he said, laughing like an under-age teenager who knew he’d get away with it. “I’m the guy who wrote the play.”

Lin-Manuel Miranda was in a good mood, and for good reason. In the Heights, a Latin and hip-hop musical set in a block or two of the Latino neighborhood of Washington Heights, had just opened, after seven years of work, in a $2.5 million Off Broadway production.

SPRING 2015 OFF-BROADWAY PREVIEW: Plays Penned by Actors Fill the Stage Alongside Superheroes and Sex Drugs

OKAY KIDS having seen a bunch of posts going around about how Broadway is too expensive and inaccessible (which is another conversation), let’s talk about cheap ways that aren’t rush lines and lotteries to see Broadway and Off Broadway theatre in New York! 

  • TDF - available to anyone under 26, students, teachers, and all industry professionals.  It’s $35 per year but you can get heavily discounted tickets to Broadway, Off Broadway, music, dance, opera, etc.  You will earn back that $35 if you use it just once.  Broadway is usually $50-$60, Off Broadway $30, and other venues vary.  They’re not going to have things like Hamilton or Book of Mormon but I have seen some truly excellent theater for under $50 thanks to TDF. 
  • TKTS - basically the same thing but it’s a booth, located in Times Square and Brooklyn, and is only day of (both) or day before (Brooklyn only). I believe other cities also have TKTS - I know Boston does.
  • Today Tix - an app, available for free to everyone.  Not as cheap as TDF, but they do have discounts on a lot of things and they have daily lotteries that you can enter through the app rather than showing up at the theater.
  • 30 Under 30 Programs - Second Stage, Lincoln Center, Manhattan Theater Club, and MCC to name a few all offer $30 tickets to those under 30.  You have to registerer for LCT but it’s free.  The others you can just go to or call the box office.  Roundabout offers $25 tickets to those under 35! Again, you have to register but it’s free.

And of course support your local and regional and non-profit theaters!

REFLECTIONS

PART 3: SUPPORTER

A collection of my favorite RA/LP images and mentions from the web.

Thank You to all those who created, uploaded, screen-capped and edit-corrected these images.  Credit to you all.


SIDE NOTE….

I ran out of room on this post to paste the image below, above, so I’ve pasted it below.  It’s a tweet from Ian McKellen via TheHobbit Twitter account when he held a Q&A where he mentions going to see LPs Golden Age play.

The official opening night of Golden Age in NY was Dec 4th.  The Hobbit Cast were also in NY on that date because they appeared on TV Shows leading to the Premiere held Dec 6th, which LP also attended.  The date of RAs pic above outside Manhattan Theater Club is Dec 5th.  He could have gone to the Opening Night and again with Ian.  The posting by the audience member saying she saw RA was at the Jan 11th performance, so yes, RA saw this Play a few times similar to LP watching The Crucible a few times, hence why I called this a “Supporter” post.  :)

How do you afford to see all this theater?

I get this question a lot. Part of it is just luck. I work in theater and I am lucky to have talented friends working all over the city, too. So when there’s a discount or a comp to be had, I’m on it. Beyond that, though, the truth is I can afford it because I rarely pay more than $50 for a ticket. And here’s how I manage it:

1. I get one membership each season to wherever looks to have the best season. Last year it was playwrightshorizons, this year it’s publictheaterny. It’s tax-deductible and I can get cheaper tickets.

2. I go to TKTS or use TodayTix** for discounted Broadway and off-Broadway tickets. I’d also recommend a TDF membership if you are eligible (full-time student or teacher, recent grad, union member, etc) so you can get the TKTS booth deals and a LOT more for very little. Goldstar is a similar ticket site that’s free to join but I’ve never used them.

**If you sign up with my code, AAJDA, you get $20 off your first ticket order. So do that.

3. I take advantage of all the discounts available from individual theaters, including many for the 30-and-under crowd. Most of these are free to sign up:

LincTix for Lincoln Center

HipTix for Roundabout

29&Up at 59e59theatersblog

CheapTix at New York Theater Workshop

HotTix, Front Row Sundays, and Live for Five Lotto at playwrightshorizons

Back 20 at Atlantic Theater

99-Cent Sundays at Soho Rep

30 Under 30 at MCC

Greenseats at Irish Rep

30 Under 30 at Manhattan Theater Club

4. Broadway for Broke People is a great resource for all the lotto/standby/SRO/etc policies for everything currently on Broadway. I don’t do this very often because I’m usually working during the day but if you have the time, go for it. Especially if the weather is miserable. I’ve seen some great shows for cheap because it was snowing or raining and nobody wanted to be out in the lotto or standby line.

Those are all my secrets. Have at. Enjoy some cheap(er) theater!

“Jitney” by August Wilson

Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, 2016

Starring Harvy Blanks, Anthony Chisholm, Brandon J. Dirden, Andre Holland, Carra Patterson, Michael Potts, Keith Randolph Smith, Ray Anthony Thomas & John Douglas Thompson

My father was the best person I have ever known and though he was taken from me on that day, nothing and no one will ever be able to take way the eight years and two days of my life that I shared with him. After my father died, and after I lost so much, I promised myself that I would never lose who I am as a person – the person that my father brought me up to be. … If you owe someone an apology, tell them you are sorry today. If someone asks for your forgiveness, forgive them. Start being the person you always wanted to be today and don’t waste your time worrying about tomorrow.
—  Mary Kate McErlean, whose father was killed on 9/11 when she was eight years old.
