Discount tickets to Escape to Margaritaville. I spent the good part of yesterday afternoon shopping for tickets for this show. Here’s what I found:
Goldstar is offering $39-$55 tickets (plus fees) in the first and second balcony. There tickets would retail for about $59-75. Here’s the link. Goldstar doesn’t assign seats when you buy tickets. You find out where you’re sitting when you pick the tickets up at will call.
$25 tickets – too far back Expired
Right this minute (10AM 10/25/17) Broadway in Chicago is offering through $25 tickets on the 25th tickets for $22 plus Ticketmaster fee for a total of $39.73. So not really $25 – anyway these tickets go for $52 plus fees of $20.33 = $72.33. These tickets are in the back rows of the upper Balcony and are almost all gone. The Oriental Theater has about 2,200 seats so these seats are just too far back.
$69 tickets – fees too high Ticketmaster
There’s an offer for $69 Main Floor Seats through Ticketmaster. These seats are in the last three to four rows of the Orchestra section which I think may be underneath the first balcony. With the code the tickets are actually $66 plus Ticketmaster charges of $20.10 = $86.10. These tickets are regularly priced at $92 plus fees = $113.60. Use code CHEESEBURGER here.
$10 fees but no advance seat assignment Todaytix
The Todaytix app is also offering the $69 tickets (regularly $113.60 with fees) which are located in the last three to four rows of the Orchestra section. Todaytix’s fee per ticket is $10 versus $20.10 from Ticketmaster. You won’t know where your seats are until the day of the performance when a Todaytix employee comes by and hands you your tickets. They still have Side Rear Orchestra seats available for $69 plus $10 fee.
Use my promo code HKUUQ and you’ll get $10 off your first Todaytix order (I get a $10 credit once you’ve attended the show. Thank you).
No fees but get a seat assignment
The best way to get tickets without fees is to go to the Box Office. The Oriental Theater box office is closed because there aren’t any shows there currently however you can buy tickets for any Broadway in Chicago production at any Broadway in Chicago theater. Hours vary check here.
I’m was too lazy to walk or bus over to any theater so I went with Todaytix. I saved $10 in fees by not using Ticketmaster from the comfort of my own couch. Enjoy the show!
