The Madrid - MTC - are they crazy????

Just got MTC's discount mailer for their off-Broadway production of The Madrid, which will begin at City Center February 5.

The supposed "discount" is a price of $59.00.

That was fiull price just a few years ago.

It is a free market and they can charge whatever they want, but there is no way I am paying $59 as an off-broadway "discount". Watch every other producer see gold and raise their "discounted" prices as well.

We are well on our way for theatre being a hobby of the 1%.

I thought off-Broadway was safe but I guess not

Thanks, MTC. I'll spend my money elsewhere. Have fun with your overpriced production.

Off Broadway has been off the wall re prices for a few years now.

Is $59 really that absurd? It's not like its some random Off-Broadway play with actors no one has heard of.

With the service charge you could spend $70 at tkts to have an hour-ten with Miss Laurie Metcalf right now!

That's not at all an outlying price for off-Broadway tickets.

Yes, and ten years ago tickets to a play on Broadway were $75-80 for prime orchestra seats. Now the average is well over $100. Times change.

I bought a ticket to THE MADRID using the discount code. $59 is a good price, whether you're willing to pay it or not. And the regular price for non-profit Off-Broadway theatres has risen over the years--that's just a fact. Non-member tickets at MTC, The Public, LCT, etc are regularly $70-80. Signature tickets after the initial $25 run jump up to $75. If you're really surprised by this discount price then you must not attend theatre very often.

That's a steal for a show with Edie Falco. I mean, I can pay up to $50 dollars for a play at local professional, non-equity theatre company here in Buffalo.

Stop whining-don't go.
