'Hedwig' Tickets Most Expensive of Multiple-Tony Nominees

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Six days ago, Hedwig and the Angry Inch came away as one of the big 2014 Tony Award nomination winners. The musical revival has received critical acclaim since opening in March, leading to eight Tony nominations, the second-highest total for a show this year.

It's also been popular with audiences and has been dominating tickets prices on the secondary market.

According to TiqIQ, Hedwig and the Angry Inch tickets have an average price on the secondary market of $376.16 for the lower orchestra level. The average is 48% above the average price of the next most expensive Broadway show to earn at least five nominations. Hedwig benefits from some star power thanks to Neil Patrick Harris in the lead role. The How I Met Your Mother star was nominated for best actor in a musical.

Though Hedwig is making its Broadway debut, it is technically considered a revival of the 1998 off-Broadway version, forcing it to be nominated as Best Revival of a Musical category instead of Best Musical. Its biggest competition in the category will come from the revival of Les Miserables, which has been one of the more expensive shows on the secondary market. Les Miserables tickets have an average price of $228.92 for orchestra level seating.

Hedwig is currently more expensive on the secondary market than some of Broadway's elite. It's currently 14.5% more expensive than the $328.58 average price of Book of Mormon tickets and 49% above the $252.56 average price of Lion King tickets.
