August 06, 2008 09:19 ET Offers Broadway Fans Opportunity to See Shows at Competitive Prices

Secondary Seller Offers Lowest Prices on Tickets to Popular Musicals

VERNON, CT--(Marketwire - August 6, 2008) -, the leading source for the ticket industry's most comprehensive inventory, announced today that its prices for Broadway tickets range significantly lower than those of the competition.

New York City's Broadway theatre district is among the most popular attractions in Manhattan with ticket sales increasing on a yearly basis. Secondary sellers such as TicketNetwork can meet these extremely high demands at consumer-friendly prices.

"Fans and tourists are often disappointed because typically only a few tickets are still available when they make the decision to purchase," said Don Vaccaro, CEO of TicketNetwork. "As the largest seller in the secondary market, TicketNetwork has the ability to offer these sought-after tickets at extremely competitive prices," Vaccaro said further.

As is the case in other industries, comparison shopping in the secondary ticketing industry certainly pays off. Buyers can save anywhere from $5 to $50 on a single ticket purchase. Below are some price samples for popular musical productions playing on Broadway in the late summer of this year:
