Subject: Re: New York City Theater Tickets
Hi Ziners,

Buying theater tickets in NYC, can be a fun experience: reading the reviews, picking the plays, and finding the discounts are all part of the joy.

The new theater season starts in September, and I suggest reading the following for the new season highlights: (theater section)- previews the up coming plays around Labor Day Weekend. Reading their theater section online will give you a good idea what happening both on and off Broadway.

Timeout NY (magazine) is a good source for theater, however their online version is not comphrensive. Their magazine is a great source of information for what is happening in NYC. I highly suggest buying it before you get to the city

New Yorker magazine is limited but has indepth reviews.

For discounts coupons (these can be used to buy tickets in advance, thus being sure of a play and getting a discount) keep a watch on the following sites:

It is too early to predict the Fall season but these are my suggestions. For serious drama I recommend Doubt, Pillowman, and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. For musicals I recommend Hairspray, Avenue Q, and Wicked. For Off Broadway Slava's Snowshow at the Union Square Theatre.

As you get closer to your arrival date can look at This site give the shows that were available at the TKS booth (although not a sure shot, it is a good indicator of show that might be available).

Regards, Sheryl in NYC
