Where can I find some good prices for Wicked (the play) tickets? Is TicketMaster the only game in town?

I'd like them in time for Christmas. I know, I know, I waited too long...

That theater might have inexpensive partial-view tickets available on the day of the performance. I remember years ago getting front-row seats for Oklahoma, and could see fine. In fact it was fun being so close. With all the effects and agita of Wicked, I don't know if you'd want to be that close. I have a bit of an advantage as I live a block from the theater.

Where u at?

For the first time, the Chicago production of "Wicked" is offering discounted, advance-purchase tickets to the general public (for 50% off). The new promotion applies to a limited number of tickets to weeknight shows during the slower winter months (Jan. 8 to March 2). You have to buy them by Jan. 6. Mention or type in the coupon code "Winter" at any Broadway in Chicago point of sale.

Jeff,

Check [www.broadwaybox.com] to see if there are any super deals on tickets. I've used it to save hundreds of dollars on several shows over the years. Definitely a great site.

Beautiful...and to think, there are other places where you can't get this kind of info because it's not Mac -related. Where else can you go when you've got a simple off topic question or comment?

By the way, while I don't have suggestions for cheap tix, if you're on a budget, do not be afraid to take the "lesser" grade tickets. I'm in Chicago too, and the Ford is still a pretty small theater—it's not like you're buying seats in the Superdome. Unless you are right on top of the stage or tucked behind some obstruction, I think you're going to enjoy the show the same wherever you sit.
