|Subject: Cheaper tickets, NYC|
Maybe this has been mentioned but, if so, I've missed it. I get the NYTimes (registration, no fee) and had an option to sign up for Ticketwatch (also no charge) which sends me at least weekly special prices on show tickets. I think it was week before last they offered "Phantom of the Opera" for $40+. It made me want to hitch it up and head for The City. I have not actually used the service as my travels have not taken me to NY for some time now, but I've forwarded some to friends who were very pleased. Maybe it's worth a try.
