Pittsburgh PA (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
Broadway season in New York City is not just a tourist attraction, but a yearly tradition of Tony award- winning and innovative productions. 2013 is no different, marked by popular musicals like the 2006 Best Musical Tony award-winner Jersey Boys. Fresh faces on Broadway are wowing critics and audiences with another Best Musical award- winner, The Book of Mormon. Broadway tickets are available for these and a huge selection of other Broadway shows in New York City.
With an upbeat script and jukebox musical feel, Jersey Boys tells the story of the music group Four Seasons and their rise from unknown singers hidden in New Jersey to well-known performers. But the journey is far from easy with family crises, problems with gambling, and Mafia threats standing in the boys' way.
The Book of Mormon has set the Broadway stage on fire, capturing nine Tony awards including Best Original Score for South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The religious satire focuses on a pair of new Mormon missionaries who are deployed to a remote African village. Although the village is under constant threat from a nearby cruel warlord, AIDs, and famine, the two missionaries attempt to convert the natives, with little success.
Other shows for which Broadway tickets are currently available include:
The Phantom of the Opera
The Lion King
Broadway refers to the Theatre District of New York City, a large area along the street by the same name that includes 40 different theaters each with at least 500 seats. While this makes a Broadway show more than accessible to the general public, Theatre District tours and Broadway tickets are popular tourist must-haves in New York City. In 2011 alone, Broadway shows brought in more than $1 billion in tickets sales from 12.13 million eager audience members. Tourists bought about 62% of the tickets sold in 2011.
Theaters in New York City have a history of keeping Broadway tickets priced low to help keep shows as well-attended as possible. But third-party ticket exchange websites like HeadlineTickets.com also have the advantage of offering Broadway tickets without fees such as service or delivery charges. These websites also typically hold available tickets for popular shows like Jersey Boys and Annie long after the public sale concludes.
