Oh please yourself, lol. I work in theater production and theater education, and I’d say between those two feeds, I’m lucky to get papered into two or three Broadway shows a year, generally plays that are struggling to get an audience, and almost entirely Rudin shows, so we’ll see how that plays out.

Then I’m likely to see a first weekend preview at NYTW or Playwrights Horizons for under $20, but those are the only two that do this regularly that I can recall.

There are schemes at many theaters for people under certain ages that make those sorts of discount more available, which is nice. And students can often get rush tickets, though those prices seem to now be in the $30 and $40 range.

TDF costs around $50 once you factor in fees, which is still pricey.

The only time I’ve seen a deep deep discount on Broadway has been when StubHub overestimated the appeal of The Band’s Visit or TodayTix waived fees on a cheap ticket to Joey McIntyre in Waitress on that one Sunday night. Otherwise, deep discounts seem to mean that $90 rear mezz seats are now $70 rear mezz seats (plus $14 in fees).

And then, if one is smart and lucky, there are other bits and bobs that present themselves, but nothing that begins to add up to enormous free and cheap tickets, unless you think that $30 - $50 is cheap (in which case we’d loop back to my original post, and I would then toss in that the cost of the subway has effectively doubled from what it cost in the 1960s).
