18. How are the sections in Broadway theater divided?
*Keep in mind; all theaters have a different layout.*
An example of a theater map is:
19. Where will my seat be located?
We guarantee 100% the exact section you choose. If you choose the Orchestra and Front Mezzanine seats which are the best seats in the theater, the best available seats are arranged in that category. Starting from the center Orchestra, seats are arranged in the order they are booked. Unfortunately, if the show is almost sold out or purchased very close to the date, you will have less chance of getting center seats. Broadway shows are best if bought at least 2 months in advance. For tickets that are almost sold out, seat results will be the same even if the tickets are bought at the theater box office.
20. How do I get tickets for Broadway show besidesohbroadway.com?
A. Buying tickets directly from the theater box office: You may directly go to the box office at located at the theater and purchase tickets from there. The box offices do not have any discounts so this option may be a little pricey. Box offices are normally opened from 10am-8pm; this may vary depending on the theater. You may purchase show tickets on the day of and receive your seating arrangements at the ticket box. If you would like to pick the day with the best seating options, you may ask the box representative for best seats and they will let you know in the date range you have provided. However, Sold Out tickets are unavailable anywhere you go, even if that is the theater box office.
B. Buying tickets through a ticket broker: If you are looking for a ticket that is already Sold Out, ticket broker might be your best bet. However, you’ll also have to pay the price. Tickets bought through a broker are usually 40% more of the actual ticket price. Sometime, including other fees, tickets might cost up to 50% more than the actual price. Nevertheless, if you are looking for tickets on Christmas or Valentine’s Day where most tickets are sold out, brokers might be your best bet.
C. Buying tickets at TKTS: This is the mostly known option for customer who doesn’t have a specific show in mind. If you would like to watch a show but don’t mind which one, you may walk up to the TKTS location during the day. TKTS sell tickets for that day show up to 20-50% discounted price. The tickets they sell are already printed and therefore, you don’t have a choice of which seat you get. From the list of shows that are available, for that day, you call out the name and they will tell you how much; it is difficult to ask any other. During the peak summer seasons and the month of December, you’ll have to wait approximately 2-3 hours on line to get a ticket. There is a $6 fee per ticket. You may also see the list of shows available at TKTS location on the web before waiting on line at www.tkts.com.
D. Buying tickets using coupons: For shows that are long-term or less popular, you may use the available coupons. Unlike TKTS, you don’t have to wait in line and have to option of choosing the date and seats for the show. Coupons are located at hotels and terminals. If you are staying at a hotel, ask the Concierge staff for the coupons since they aren’t’t very visible. Coupons have an expiration date and show are not available on weekends and major holidays; Christmas, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, etc.
E. Entering the ticket lottery: For customers who have time and don’t mind which show to watch, this might be the best idea. On the day of the show, you register your name and the number tickets needed (under 2) approximately 2-21/2 hours before the show time and wait for your name to be called. The name-calling process takes about half an hour and if your name is called, you go up to the front and purchase your ticket. Tickets are usually $20-$50 and purchased cash only.
F. Buying tickets through TDF: This option is recommended for students staying in N.Y. for a long period time and is planning to watch multiple shows. Register yourself at www.tdf.com by sending a copy of your student ID and tickets are free for that year. Starting the year after you have registered, you will get 75% discounts on Broadway, Off-Broadway, Play, Dance, etc. There is a $25 registration fee and tickets are under $32.

Theater will open for seating 30 minutes prior to the show time. We recommend you arriving 15-30 minutes prior to the show time.
22. How should I dress?
This depends on the show. Though a tuxedo and an evening dress are no longer mandatory for attending a Broadway theater, a suit or sports coat will definitely be appropriate. Dress pants with decent shirt would be put on the median of the theater-goers.
23. Can I bring my suitcase to the theater?
A Coat Check is available at the theater. If you have any large items including suitcases, bags, coats, etc., please utilize the Coat Check. Please use the restroom before sitting in your seat and no outside food is allowed. If you have a purse or a small coat, please place them on your lap during the show. No photo/video can be recorded so do not take out your camera/cell phone. If found taking pictures, you may be asked to leave without refunds.

25. Is there a cheaper rate for children?
No, all tickets are sold at the same rate regardless of age. Children under 4 years of age will not be allowed in the theater and every one regardless of age must have their own ticket.
26. Can children 4 and under watch the show?
When it comes to children, the general rule for Broadway is that no one under 4 years old is allowed in the theater. Broadway officials will not check each child’s birth certificate when they walk in, but if he/she looks too young, they won’t be allowed into the theater. Also, regardless of how old they are, everyone must have a ticket.
27. I couldn’t’t make it to the show, can I watch it some other time?
If you couldn’t’t make it to the show and didn’t’t pick up the tickets, please pick them up as soon as possible (even on the next day). Broadway has a ‘Pass Date Ticket’ rule where tickets that have not been picked up can be used after the date of the show. The Pass Date rule only applies for Tuesday – Thursday showings and you will have to call the theater every day (keep in mind all theaters have a different number) to check if the show is sold out. If there are leftover seats, they will allow you to use your ticket which you haven’t used yet. Unfortunately, you are not guaranteed the seat which was initially assigned to you.
(Pass Date tickets are only available on Tuesday – Thursday showings. You must have the original ticket with on hand when going to watch the show. There are no reservations for Pass Date tickets so you can NOT go on Tuesday and ask for Wednesday’s ticket.)
