Let’s face it: There are fewer and fewer reasons, especially with the departure of “Mad Men”, to stay home and watch tv. Going out is pricey and you wonder if shivering in the chill of Union Square at the half price tickets booth is worth it.
The solution, of course, is online. Join Goldstar.com and you’ll find a pretty impressive menu of performances with tickets half-price or often, even less. As you’d expect there are handling fees that run around $5. And unlike Union Square, these tickets are available for advance shows.
They’re very helpful about seating locations, even providing member reviews.
The offerings are mostly theatrical and stand-up, with some classical music events.
Sorry, no opera or symphony tickets. Currently they’re selling seats for ACT, the Rrazz Room and Cirque de Soleil among many others.
