Jersey boys tickets

I have been trying to get tickets for Jersey Boys and no luck, does anyone have any advice? Is it worth all the late nights on the computer trying to find tickets? How about the ticket booths?

Thanking you in advance
Michelle

Great show, sold out for months. Only sure way is to pay a preminum price and use a ticket broker.

When I was looking a couple of weeks ago, there were tickets available on E-bay, but I wasn't willing to pay the $200+ price. If you are, you could check there.

Tickets will definitely not be available at the TKTS booth- probably not for several years, in fact! If you don't want to pay the exorbitant prices at ticket brokers, you'll either need to wait a while (watch for ads saying a new block is on sale), or you can also keep an eye on craigslist to see if anyone is trying to sell them last-minute (due to a cancellation).

Good luck! It's a fantastic show, and worth the wait.

Michelle, if you're will to spend that kind of money, you should definitely be able to get tickets.

Michelle,

A quick look on Telcharge.com revealed that you can get Premium Seats as early as October. For these you'll only pay about $250 each, and you'll be guaranteed fabulous seats. I would do this before a broker, unless you're anxious to see it this summer.

Did you try Ebay? I see tickets are available for your timeframe. Bidding is at $128/ticket.

Try the box office each day that you are here. Getting last minute seats for hit shows is not unheard of. I've done it several times. You never know. Good luck.
P.S. I'd avoid the first few rows on the side, especially the right side. An aisle seat on the side might be acceptable up front, otherwise, opt for something further back.

If you're still looking "Stubhub" has seats for the dates you are there.
Jersey Boys is a really great show!
My wife and I saw it in March and loved it. Good luck and enjoy your trip.

If you don't have a hotel booked (and need one) you might be able to get them with a hotel package. Try the Beacon Hotel.

Jag,
The set for this show has a catwalk that runs along the back and the right side of the stage. If you're way over on the side and right up front, first few rows, you can't see anything that goes on on the right side of the catwalk. I personally think it's a rip off to charge full price for these particular seats because the view is partially obstructed.
But it's not a total loss, because you see most of the action that goes on in the center of the stage.
