The show was awesome, but box office sales runs from $45-$60. Pretty hefty for me. As it turns out, my friend uses a service called Audience Extras, and it makes all Broadway shows affordable. According to its official description:
- Audience Extras (AE) screens for responsible, dependable and discreet people to put in an empty seat when a producer needs extra audience.
- It distributes "paper" complimentary tickets in a way that could develop future audiences, that is, on a "free sample" introductory basis.
- It uses this "papering" program as an ongoing funding source for non-profit theater.
That's a deal too good to not share.
