The theatre is a very important part of my life that I could not live without. I am very fortunate to live only an hour away from some of the best theatre in the world. The theatre, along with all forms of art, shouldn't be a luxury. It should be accessible and experienced by all. Here are my tips and tricks for seeing top-tier theatre without breaking the bank.

1. Buy your tickets through discount websites

There are plenty of websites that offer online discount codes for Broadway shows. Typically, the codes are only for specific shows, dates, and performances. My favorite websites are TheaterMania and BroadwayBox. These websites are totally legit and perfect if you prefer to plan your trip to the theatre in advance.

2. Visit the box-office

This option is definitely the best for the last minute show or if you find yourself on Broadway often. A lot of shows offer "rush" tickets, where you can purchase up to two tickets for a performance on the same day for around $40, given that the show isn't sold out. Your best chances of getting these is to arrive at the box office upon opening. If you can't swing rush tickets, buying at the box office at least saves you from ticket fees. Each show's rush policy can be found here.

3. Enter lotteries!

This is an option that is all about luck, but maybe your best option for scoring the priciest tickets at the best price (I'm talking about you, "Hamilton" and "Dear Evan Hansen"!). Before you get too excited, you aren't winning the tickets per say, but rather the chance to buy discounted tickets. Just like rush tickets, most of them run at about $40. While some lotteries are in person, meaning you must be present at the box office during the drawing, most of them are online nowadays! Most of the digital lotteries even let you enter a week's worth of drawings. Each show's lottery policy can be found here also.

4. Choose your performance wisely

It is a FACT that Saturday matinees have the highest priced tickets. If possible, try for a weeknight when tickets might be slightly less expensive.

5. Check out TKTS in Times Square

All tickets sold here are discounted anywhere from 20%-50%. Typically, larger discounts are given to the more expensive seats. Tickets are sold the day of the performance and show availability changes on a daily basis. Thanks to their app, though, you can check their availability before you even arrive. More information can be found on their website.

6. Download the TodayTix app

This is just another resource for buying discounted tickets to nearly any show. They often run promotions for fee-less tickets. The best part is, someone from the company in official TodayTix attire will meet you outside the theatre prior to the performance to hand deliver your tickets.

7. Join HipTix

HipTix is a free membership that allows 18-35-year-olds $25 tickets to all Roundabout Theatre Company Productions. Keep an eye out far in advance to ensure you don't get shut out!

8. Be realistic

Unfortunately, none of the previous tips will guarantee you cheap tickets to hottest shows on Broadway at the moment (i.e. "Hamilton," "Dear Evan Hansen," "The Book of Mormon," "Wicked"). But that doesn't mean that there aren't plenty of other incredible shows worth seeing at an affordable price! Don't feel as if you're settling if you score tickets to a different awesome show, you can't go wrong with any Broadway show.

    10 Of The Best Broadway Show Tunes That Are NOT From 'Hamilton'

    The emotions and feelings you get from listening to these songs are incredible.

    Getting into Broadway music can be overwhelming because of all the amazing shows. However, from friends, my significant other, and shows I have seen, I have heard some amazing songs. With that, I can say I love Broadway music. Some nights I love to curl up and write while listening to my favorite Broadway tunes. The songs in this list and the ones that didn't make it on the list are beautiful. The emotions and feelings you get from listening to these songs are incredible. Some disclaimers are these songs are in no specific order as they're all amazing. Also, I have not included "Hamilton" and other classics but as I expand my horizons and see more shows, they could appear on a future list.

    1. "Seize The Day" — Newsies

    This song makes me want to dance and fight for what's right. I love this song and all the different dimensions it has.

    2. "No Good Deed/Gutes Tun" — Wicked

    I love the German version of this song due to an incredible performer called Willemijn Verkaik. Listen to the original and you'll never view this song the same way again. The song is so deep and beautiful, it puts me in tears.

    3. "Super Trooper" — Mamma Mia

    Who doesn't love this song? I love the upbeat energy and the original Broadway cast did an excellent rendition of this classic Abba song.

    4. "Crazier Than You" — The Addams Family

    I've never seen "The Addams Family" and I truthfully don't know how I came across this song. However, I love it and it makes me wish "The Addams Family" would come back to Broadway.

    5. "I Believe" — The Book Of Mormon

    When my boyfriend played this song for me, of course I loved it — otherwise it wouldn't be on this list — and I really wanted to see "The Book Of Mormon."

    6. "The Circle Of Life" — Lion King

    I remember seeing this show as a little girl and it sticking with me for a long time. Here is one of the many versions of this classic song.

    7. "Do You Hear The People Sing" — Les Miserables

    This song shows how deep yet hopeful people were in revolutionary France.

    8. "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" — Mary Poppins

    When I saw this show on Broadway, I was amazed. I remember how this song was one of many that I loved.

    9. "Defying Gravity" — Wicked

    This is a classic and iconic song in the show "Wicked." When she actually defies gravity, it is breath taking.

    10. "You Can't Stop The Beat" — Hairspray

    Last but not least, this awesome song from the hit musical "Hairspray." This inspires me to be confident and be myself.
