Wicked the Musical has arrived in Salt Lake City Utah and is proving to be a huge hit as it continues on its nationwide tour. With shows sold out through August 26, secondary market leader CheapSeatsTickets.com is now offering free standard shipping on every Wicked order for its Salt Lake customers.
“It’s always tricky to get tickets for a traveling Broadway production like Wicked because most people don’t know to buy tickets until the show is already in town,” said CheapSeatsTickets.com owner Matthew Brenner. “Take Sunday’s 7:30 performance, there are only single seat tickets left through the box office (at artTix.com) which is great if you’re planning on going by yourself. But we have selections all throughout the mezzanine and the orchestra still available. So we thought we’d extend free shipping as an incentive to our loyal customers.”
Right now, for a limited time, CheapSeatsTickets.com is offering the discount code ElphabaUT for customers to receive free shipping on every order.
Traveling shows like the Wicked are often bundled with other Broadway hits and sold as a season package. Most of the tickets are sold before the general public even knows the show is coming to town. But even season ticket holders can’t attend every show and many place their tickets for sale through the secondary market.
“A lot of people frown on the secondary market but in a practical sense, it really satisfies a market,” insisted Brenner. “Right now, I can get tickets for a show two days away and sit in the very first row, and that’s pretty cool.”
Ticket prices on the secondary market can sometimes price higher than the face value but many times are competitive or even less than what the box office is asking. We priced that single ticket for Sunday and it’s running $205 through the box office. We were able to find seats closer, and as a pair, through CheapSeatsTickets.com at $200 a piece.
The show is playing at the Capitol Theater in Utah with dates running from August 5 through August 26. The Addams Family the musical comes to town in November. Look for CheapSeatsTickets.com discounts on upcoming Salt Lake City concert, sports and theater events.
