|The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis|
The reason this is on my mind is because a friend from high school is in her first BROADWAY musical, how amazing is that! It's called Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and looks like an awesome show. There is a lottery each night before curtain for 20 tickets at $20 apiece- a thrifty deal since regular seats can go for up to $130.
Local theaters here in the Twin Cities have similar deals:
Guthrie Theater- Public Rush Line
Orpheum Theater- Student Rush
Orchestra Hall- Rush Tickets
If you're in NYC there are always the TKTS Booths where you can buy discounted day-of and day-before tickets.
So go get some (thrifty) culture! Any deals in your hometown you'd like to share?
