SACRAMENTO, California — Whether you've been to a Broadway show or not, you can acknowledge one thing with us...it's not cheap.
A quick visit to broadway.com turned up tickets ranging from $59 each for Come From Away ($81.42 after taxes and fees) to $379 each for Hamilton ($468.75 after taxes and fees).
"But that's New York!" you say? You're right. In the state's capital city we're lucky to have "Broadway Sacramento," a more affordable option to see some of the best shows and performers.
Their season hasn't kicked off yet, so we can't give you a price comparison. But we can tell you that their soonest shows are:
- A Christmas Story - Nov. 8 to Nov. 17 (Single-show tickets on sale Sept. 6)
- Dear Evan Hansen - Jan. 15, 2020 to Jan. 26, 2020 (Single-show tickets on sale Oct. 25)
While looking for upcoming shows, we stumbled upon the "$35 under 35 Club" program, which is available for (you guessed it) theater patrons between the ages of 18 and 35. Check out the perks:
- No ticket fees: $35 Under 35 tickets are not subject to additional fees if purchased by phone or at the Wells Fargo Pavilion Box Office.
- 10% off your meal: Present your ticket to at any partner restaurant to get the discount! Must be done on the same day, before or after the show. Restaurants include Cafeteria 15L, Capitol Garage, Public House Downtown and more.
The main limit to the low-price program is that members are only allowed two tickets each per show.
