Comparison Tickets shopping in London West End
the producers split the tickets between several agencies. Prices, seat locations, and availability vary between agencies. Broadwaybox provides links to
all agencies that sell tickets to a given show to allow users to compare ticket agencies, and choose the best deal.
Why do the producers offer advanced discounts?
Theatre seats are like airline seats, once the doors have closed, empty seats are worth nothing. To recover their
huge investments, producers are challenged to sell every seat, at every performance. They do it by distributing discount offers for selected performances
where they expect unsold seats. These are usually applicable for the mid-week performances, or when the show has been running for a while. Discounts vary
from 25%-50% off and sometimes even more. The seats provided are usually the best available seats in a given category. In addition, if empty seats are
still available on the day of the performance, they are offered, at the TKTS booth, at 25% or 50% off. BroadwayBox.com combines the ease of regular advanced
orders with the attractive discounts of the TKTS booth.
The story behind BroadwayBox.com
Broadwaybox was created by a group of NY theatre fans to help the city recover from the September 11 disaster. They decided that encouraging people to
visit Broadway and Off-Broadway would be their humble contribution. With just word of mouth, Broadwaybox.com became the premier site for
theatre tickets. The site was covered by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and all major
newspapers. Over quarter million visits are registered monthly on the site.
BroadwayBox community web facilitates the exchange of theatre discount offers for Broadway and
shows free of charge. No membership fees. No cost. Using these discount offers users get heavily discounted tickets,
for the show of their choice, on their preferred date,
in advance, from their home.
