The bad news is that the revival of Eugene O'Neill's 'Hughie' isn’t going to last long. The good news is that you might have the chance to see it the show for cheap. The production, starring Forest Whitaker and Frank Wood will be offering $37 rush tickets for the last week of production.
Similar to 'Hamilton’s' Ham4Ham discount ticket promotion, 'American Psycho the Musical' is also slashing prices in a manner very fitting to the show’s theme. American Psycho will be offering tickets for the low, low price of $19.89. What a better way to honor the decade of excess and greed, than by dropping the price down.
The revivel of Eugene O’Neill’s 'Hughie' official opens tonight on Broadway. . This play features only two actors, Oscar Winner Forest Whitaker ('The Last King of Scotland') as Ernie Smith and and Tony Award winner Frank Wood ('Side Man') as a night clerk. 25 tickets for each performance are being sold at $25 dollars making Hughie possibly one of the most affordable shows on Broadway.
Lin-Manuel Miranda's 'Hamilton' is one of the biggest things on Broadway today. The good news is everyone wants to see it. The bad news is everyone wants to see it. Tickets virtually stay sold out. However, you still have a shot to be in the room where it happens. The Hamilton Digital Lottery is back on. That is right, you can win an open seat at a deep discount. The lottery for a chance to win a front row $10 tickets takes place tomorrow, Tuesday 02 from 7am to 3pm for the 7 pm show performance. #Ham4Ham
Although it's generally considered taboo to talk about Christmas on Broadway until after the Thanksgiving holiday, Christmas comes to The Great White Way well before people start buying turkeys. Every year, the Christmas season draws thousands of tourists to New York City for some of the most iconic holiday spectacles, including the Rockefeller Center Tree, ice skating in Bryant Park and The Rockettes. With the spike in tourism, Broadway also has a collection of Christmas-only shows that come to town every December. This year, the 'Radio City Christmas Spectacular' and 'Elf: The Musical' are waiting for you to come and see them over the holidays with the Radio City Music Hall show being one of the lowest price resale market tickets available on Broadway right now.

Naturally, resale ticket prices are rising fast.
Every once in a while, a play comes to Broadway that makes fans rethink if one moment can change everything. China Doll, starring the all-powerful Oscar-, Emmy- and Tony-winner Al Pacino, tells the story about a man who is ready to walk away from it all to start a new life with his young and gorgeous fiancée. Then, he gets a phone call that changes everything. The 15-week limited engagement play has been getting a lot of buzz in the Broadway community, and ticket prices are approaching record levels. Mainly, because Pacino's name is all over the thing. Unsurprisingly, Pacino is successful in every theatrical medium, be it film, television, the Great White Way.

With hits like Book of Mormon, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder and Jersey Boys, Broadway is once again taking the country and the world by storm with popular touring productions.

The secondary ticket market is seeing price increases for a number of touring productions, just not to the extent of many of their Broadway counterparts, according to data provided by TiqIQ.
'The Color Purple,' though, has one thing that 'Fiddler on the Roof 'does not have: a famous pop singer. And, least we forget, Danielle Brooks (i.e. "Taystee" from 'Orange is the New Black').
