I was in the city last weekend and checked at TKTS to see what was available. The shows you mentioned were there as were BOY FROM OZ, LITTLE SHOP, NEVER GONNA DANCE, SINGULAR SENSATION, WONDERFUL TOWN....I guess you could say every show was available except LION KING.

LION KING has been on the TKTS boards sporadically. Don't remember if WICKED was there.

As far as the LION KING lady is concerned, if she was flying her kids in from Spain to see it, she should have purchased her tickets in advance. If she could afford transatlantic airfare, she couold afford to pay full price for her tickets. I wouldn't feel sorry for a dipsy doodle like that.

I hear WICKED has so-far issued tix to TKTS only once, for the make-up performance, a Tuesday in previews.

it was sorta funny that this "dipsy doodle" was surprised at how much reg ticktes were. she freakin stayed at the Marriot Marquis which is not exactly 100 a night! and she wanted to know if cabaret was a better show instead. we kept telling her that it was not a family show and every 5 min she asked if it was a family show. i dont know what was her mental state at the time. she was odd.

You know and it is SO easy for her to just go up to the damn list on the wall. It is not THAT hard...

I always pay full price for ONE show and then TXTS it for the others.

I rarely ever go to tkts, except (a couple of times) on a last minute thing and even then, I go with the attitude: "Whatever is available".
There are allways so many discounts available on broadwaybox.com and I prefer to make plans ahead of time. Who wouldn't?
And yeah, if you're flying in, and staying in a fancy, expensive hotel, what's the problem with the $100 a ticket it takes to see a show? Next time, stay at The Ed like I do and save your money for the tix.

You could try the discount codes. Many shows use these codes. Try Broadway Box for info.
