"9 to 5" is one of the star-studded blockbuster musicals opening on Broadway in the next few weeks. Other long-awaited productions include revivals of "Hair" and "West Side Story". But if you want a seat up close to the action, you'll still have to fork over more than a hundred bucks.
The Broadway League, which represents theater owners and producers, says prices will remain pretty much the same as last year. But what's different are the deep discounts now being offered.
Promotional discounts are filling mailboxes, offering 50% off ticket prices. For example, you can get an orchestra seat to see "Hair" --which hasn't even opened yet-- for $60.
New Price of Broadway
Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of the Broadway League, says "I think one of the things Broadway has not done a good job of doing is letting people know that there are always tickets at various price points."
And for the first time, kids under 12 now get in free with a paying adult two days every month, instead of just once a year.
