    My daughter is a huge fan of all musicals, and is obsessed at the moment with seeing Wicked. As she is graduating high school in a few days I thought it would make a nice gift. Yes, tickets are expensive, but I did notice a box on the top asking for a discount code. My question is, does anyone know of any discount codes, for any of the performances? Thanks so much, a long shot im sure, but worth the try.

    I don't know of any discount codes but the show is well worth the price. DH and I saw it last year and are going back again. Loved it. Get her the soundtrack before hand too. She'll love it.

    Call the box office and ask if there are any "rush" seats avaliable.

    I don't know the age of your daughter, but they used to sell "student" seats at a discount. These were usually the last 3 rows of the theatre. You would have to call the theatre box office direct to see if they offer it, and you would have to go in person to buy them.

    I, too, saw Wicked with the Mirvish subscription last time it was here, and agree it's well worth it. :thumbsup2

    Sometimes that "TO TIX" place sells tickets for the day of at cheap as well. It's a bit of a crap shoot...I dont' know if I would do it for a present but if the two of you are flexible, it might be great. I would LOVE to see that show too. I have the CD and I've hardly listened to it. I think it's one I'd like to listen to a bunch of times to really get to know it but I just haven't gotten to it yet.

    I think TO TIX has a web site if you hunt for it.

    Good luck! BE sure and let us know how it was if you go. I'll live vicariously through you. ;)

    When it was here last time they only did same day sales for the rush seats and it was a lottery system. You went down in the afternoon and put your name in a hat. There was usually about 20 seats to go.

    Since it is such a limited run I don't know if TO Tix will ever have the discounted seats. We saw it on opening night last time, loved it so much we tried to get tix for later in the run and it was entirely sold out.

    Rush seating is usually for ballets only.

    I totally agree that Wicked is well worth every single penny spent. I saw it twice when it was here last year, I'm going again this November and DH and I will be seeing it on Broadway.

    I am not just obsessed with Idina Menzel, I am obsessed with the songs, characters, and story of Wicked. IMHO - the only other musical up to par with Wicked is Beauty and the Beast.

    To the OP, for your daughter:

    Enjoy! :)

    Madonna, have you read the book? Much darker and more "adult" but good.

    Disneygirl - ABSOLUTELY!

    I enjoyed the book as well, although I much prefer how lighthearted the play is.

    What's bizarre is that I don't even like the Wizard of Oz. Goes to show that although Wicked's storyline and characters derived from it, one really has nothing to do with the other.

    All limited run productions offer rush seats. They are always same day sales and you must purchase them in person. Different theatre's have different ways of selling these tickets but normally you have to line up for them at the box office and they only have a limited amount per day. They are usually extremely cheap and the seats can be anywhere in the theatre but are most often great seats. However, these tickets are not offered daily you must check with the box office as to when/what time they will be sold. On days that they are not being sold it is quite common to be told that rush seats are not an option for that production. They want you to buy full priced seats--they never promote discounted seats.

    I'll take your word for it.

    All I know is I tried to get Rush seats for Evita and when I got down to the theatre the day of, I was told that Rush seats are only available for Ballets. :confused3

    My daughter has read the books, knows all the songs, and was given as a gift original posters from the London Musical. Idina Menzel is one of her faves too, which is why we had to buy the movie Rent haha. Yes, we will take her to the show, just any discount would have been nice, so had to ask. I look forward to it myself, we have seen a number of shows, and are swept up in her desire to see Wicked

    WE seen WICKED here in Toronto, it was really good. I found the book VERY hard to get into, and quite different from the musical. Tried to see it on Broadway (fan of Joe McIntrye), tried for the lottery but no luck. Too bad. Have a good time.
