Chicago Broadway Tickets
Apart from getting discounted tickets online, you can also get Broadway tickets for cheap via TKTS booths or Digital Lottery. You can also try your luck with RUSH or Standing Room Only (SRO) tickets, which are also sold at reduced rates!
Chicago on TKTS
TKTS NYC Discount Booths offer a variety of Broadway and Off Broadway tickets at 20% to 50% off regular prices. Tickets can only be purchased in person - on the day of the performance for evening shows, or the day prior for matinee performances. Seats are assigned at the discretion of the TKTS booth attendant and may be partial view.
TKTS obtains its inventory directly from theaters, based upon how a particular show’s tickets are selling at full-price. “Chicago” TKTS tickets are often available. For additional information on how TKTS works, see this in-depth guide to the four TKTS booths.
Chicago Lottery Tickets
For those willing to try their luck, entering a lottery can be a great way to score discount Broadway tickets. A handful of theaters host live, same-day ticket drawings a couple hours before performance time. These require your presence and a bit of patience; but, to many, the reward is well worth it.
Currently, there are no “Chicago” lottery tickets available.
