How To Get Discount Tickets to Broadway’s Newest Shows

There are 14 shows opening on Broadway in April, 2017, which are available for as little as $30, even though full price can be 500 percent more than. How?  Below, listed alphabetically, are the shows that are opening and the official ways to get cheap tickets — among them digital lottery, general rush (meaning showing up when the box office opens on the day of the performance), student rush (showing up and being a student), and standing room.

I link the titles to my reviews for shows that have already opened as of this writing.

For descriptions of all of these shows and those opening Off-Broadway this month, check out my guide to April, 2017 New York Theater Openings
