I just got an email in my inbox with what I think is a pretty incredible offer: Buy one full-price ticket to The Lion King, Mary Poppins, or The Little Mermaid, get a second ticket for $15. The performances are from April 21st to May 31st. There are, of course, restrictions – some seats in some shows aren’t eligible, and some performances aren’t eligible at all. And the second ticket won’t be exactly $15 – there are other fees involved that raise the price a bit. But still!
I’ve taken my daughter to exactly one Broadway show, The Little Mermaid. We had “won” the tickets in a silent auction, and got a backstage tour along with it, so I can’t really complain about the (ridiculous) price. But that’s the only Broadway show I’ve done with either of my kids. Good seats can cost over $100, and I’m just not sure my kids will get a $100 experience out of it. But $15? Yeah, I think that would be worth it!
The sale starts this Sunday at noon Eastern, and I’m guessing that this will be a popular promotion. So if you live in or near NYC or will be here on vacation, and you want these tickets, don’t dilly dally! The sale will go on for 15 days, until April 19th, but I wouldn’t wait that long!
And no, it’s not a coincidence that the tickets cost $15 and the sale lasts 15 days: this is all in celebration of Disney’s fifteenth anniversary of being on Broadway. This is one of those things that is celebrated by some and hated by others. There are strange people out there who miss the sticky-floored theaters and the hookers and the drug dealers that used to rule the Times Square area before the “Disneyfication” of those blocks, and I think those people are a few bagels short of a dozen.
So, if you’re interested, go to Disney on Broadway for the full details.
