This summer, I've been getting a lot of texts from friends visiting New York asking, "Monica! How do I get cheap tickets to [insert show name]?"

In lieu of sending everyone lists that I have to text, I will now be sending everyone who asks a link to this blog post, where I have compiled a comprehensive list of my favorite resources and methods for getting theatre tickets on a budget in NYC as well as Orange County/Los Angeles and even Chicago.
