Did Broadway ticket prices fall during the Great Depression, relative to their time? The events we've been experiencing is something as historic in its implications. I'd be happy if tickets went back to at least levels before premium prices instituted (and dreamed up) by producers of "The Producers" which basically started to practically triple prices (or more) from where they had been before; it turned Broadway from something regular theatergoers could afford into something more of a luxury that was, but for the wealthy folks who live around here and tourists, increasingly onerous to afford. Compare ticket prices in the ABCs of newspapers and Playbill listing of shows from pre-"Producers" to during its run and few years thereafter, and the price hikes across the board are astounding.
