Last Broadway play I attended was Wicked. Seem to remember paying 125 to 160 range per seat.

My wife and sister just went when we were up there a couple weeks ago. They saw wicked and it was right around $125 per seat.

Download the TKTS app. It will show you what's available same day for shows playing that afternoon or evening.

It lets you get a feel for what might be had and at what price, if you go to that booth for your tkts same day. It's a good deal and lots of people use those TKTS booths if you're not determined to see one particular show. I think if you go to the downtown TKTS booth you can get some tkts a day ahead of time (MAYBE).

Stubhub is helpful if you want to see high demand shows like Book of Mormon, etc.

It's the best way to go IMO.

It's a ripoff at any price.

I was in NYC over the summer for a quick last min weekend trip and we priced a couple of "very popular" shows... tickets, if you could get them, were in the $150-300 range. There were less popular shows going in the $75-150 range.

While debating about it I watched a woman come in and plunk down $1200+ for her family of 4 to see a show which was entirely inappropriate for her kids.

There was an assortment of options for last minute dummies like me, which ranged from standing in line for 5 hours to ticket lotteries etc.

If you want to see a first run fairly new and popular on Broadway show, you will pay $125-450 for a ticket; the less popular shows that have been out for a while usually offer discounts so that tickets in the $75-250 range are the norm; TKTS is great because of the cheap prices for same day shows, but only if you are flexible and don't care what show you will see - sometimes all that is available is something you don't want to see!
There are also lots of off Broadway shows that are very good and tickets are in the $25-100 range.
If you can go during the mid-week it is always easier to get seats and tickets will be cheaper.
