OK, so maybe these require some special circumstances that just happen to put you in the New York metropolitan area around this time of year. If you're already there, however, you're running smack into the post-Tony Awards offseason when the languishing shows close and the blockbusters prepare for their national tours.
Thanks to sites such as
, tickets to shows including
The Other Place
Motown The Musical
Breakfast At Tiffany's
Who's Afraid of Virginal Woolf
are available for 35% to 40% off. No, you likely won't get a break on seeing ScarJo in
Cat On A Hot Tin Roof
, but if you're still looking to see mainstay musicals including
The Phantom of the Opera
Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark
, deep discounts are available without hitting the TKTS booth.
The best part? It's not tourist season. There'll still be folks in Times Square and at the M&M store, but with the tree long gone from Rockefeller Center and the hansom cabs having pulled their last Valentine's couples, it's a great time to enjoy the city's relative silence until half the suburbs jam Fifth Avenue and its bars for the St. Patrick's Day parade.
