We are horrified at ticket prices. Who wouldn't be? Book of Mormon is especially bad since it's in a relatively small house, so they are agressivelly managing their prices, somewhat akin to the airlines. I was, I felt, fortunate to get a $158 ticket fourth row center mezzanine (my favorite location for such a show) in November for the last Sunday in January.Someone has mentioned the TKTS booths, and that's definitely a good way to go. I'm just back from a quick 48 hours in NYC, and we got tickets there Tuesday night for $42.00 a pop to See "Grace," a straight play starring Paul Rudd and Ed Asner (plus two actors much better known for their stage work). A couple of things. Tuesday night was the start of Yom Kippur, and the show is in previews. The seats were nosebleed, but it's in a house built for straight plays, and with competent performers (all four were), you miss nothing.I would definitely check out the South Street Seaport booth rather than the Times Square one. When I was spending a week a month in NYC for 5 years, that booth was in the North Tower of the World Trade center, which was right across the street from the office. I'd go by every afternoon and pick up a ticket for something. Hardly any line ever.You asked about Off Broadway. Some terrific stuff, and much of it is also available at TKTS. Definitely read up and make a list of possible shows before you go. And forget about things like Lion King that are built for tourists anyway.PhilRule Your Retirement Home Fool
