For those of you who know me, you know I love Broadway and the performing arts, so for those of you who will be visiting New York City and want to see a show, KEEP READING!
Broadway sets the gold standard for theater around the world, but for many aspiring theatergoers, getting a ticket is difficult due to the planning and expense involved. As a result, many curtains open to less than a full house. Broadway Roulette aims to change that!
Working in partnership with the theater community, they offer these tickets at an incredibly affordable price through a fun and simple process.
How does it work? It’s easy: You go to the website and pick the show date, the amount of tickets (can only guarantee up to 4 will sit next to each other), your name and info, whether you prefer a Musical or Play. Then you will see a list (quite a large list) of shows and you can X out 4 shows that you do not want to see and then they pick the show for you. Now here is the BEST PART, every ticket is ONLY $45.
Broadway Roulette is a terrific solution for busy New Yorkers, people seeking a fun family outing, and visitors who don’t want to miss out on one of New York City’s top attractions BroadwayRoulette.com
