Telecharge.com has tickets to most Broadway shows. Ticketmaster.com has some too.

I usually go to the website for the show and click the buy tickets button. That seems to be the least expensive option unless you’re willing to take a chance and buy them last minute in NYC. I’ve been in NY twice in the last two months and have seen Rock of Ages, Evita, and Spiderman and loved all of them. I’ve also seen the tour versions of many other shows. What are you planning to see? The sooner you buy your tickets the better. For example, I tried to buy Book of Mormon and it was completely sold out months in advance unless I wanted to pay scalpers prices.

If you don’t have a specific show in mind and can keep your plans flexible, the TKTS outlet is my favorite place to get broadway tickets. It’s right on Times Square, on Broadway at 47th or thereabouts. The theaters release their unsold seats on the day of the show, and TKTS sells them at a discount.

You will not get tickets to the extremely popular shows there (Book of Mormon for example is sold out through the end of its run, and while it is a FANTASTIC show, it costs an arm and a leg to get tickets through a broker) but for a long-running show, a second run, or a show that’s been done before, you can save a ton of money. Try to go in the first hour that they’re open because the lines get stupidly long in the afternoon.

Also ask your hotel concierge (most hotels will let you call/email the concierge weeks in advance) as they sometimes have good deals with individual theaters.

Otherwise, Telecharge or Ticketbastard are the way to go. As much as I hate them (Ticketbastard is the worst), the other brokers tend to add a huge mark-up, and the discount sites only have access to the least popular shows.
