We’re going to make this nice and simple: There are some excellent ticket offers you should have on your radar. But they’re coming fast, space is limited and you best plan ahead. You’re welcome in advance. Here we go.
The Death of Klinghoffer
Yes, it’s controversial and yes, you should see it. I covered opening night and formally reviewed it for NY1. Now decide for yourself. If you want orchestra seats, you can still get them for under $100. But if you’re on a tighter budget, you can try for $25 Rush Tickets. I heard that someone had trouble with the box office earlier today, but fingers crossed it all worked it out.
Hugh Jackman back on Broadway. A new play by the author of Jerusalem. Cush Jumbo, excellent as Mark Antony in the all-female Julius Caesar last year. What more do you need? How about $35 tickets for the first week of previews (starting Nov 2)? You can buy them in person beginning 10a.m. this Monday at Circle in the Square Theatre (50th Street at Broadway). Also, every Monday throughout the run, 160 seats priced at $35 will go on sale at the box office for the current week of performances.
Straight White Men
This is the best discount of all: zero dollars and nada cents. Free For All is a great new initiative at the Public Theater—all seats to the first preview of upcoming shows are free. You have to enter the TodayTix mobile lottery, which launches one week before the first preview. For writer-director Young Jean Lee’s Straight White Men that’s next Friday. (Pictured above: Gary Wilmes, Pete Simpson and James Stanley in rehearsal.) Winners are notified by e-mail and push notifications between noon and 3p.m. on the day of the first preview. All winners must confirm they will use the tickets via the app. A limited number of tickets will also be distributed on the day of the first preview beginning at noon via a lottery in the lobby of the Public Theater.
