What people are saying about New York City

The musical is really awesome. The music, the actors, the stage design - everything was really great. The main actor just won a Toni!!! Rightly so!!! The prices are quite high, we had tickets for $159 - the seats were in row J on the left in the Orchestra area. You sit on the outside, but you have a great view of the stage. If you buy the tickets through GYG you will get a voucher. Within 10 minutes after purchase, you will receive an email from the organizer with online tickets (QR code) - the exact seats are also listed here. And that's it - off to the musical! I looked at the location of the seats in advance on the "ticketmaster" website. You also have the option of canceling the tickets up to 24 hours before the start - in these uncertain times that was ideal for us. As far as I know, you don't have the option to buy tickets directly from the organizer.

Very easy to use the app. The show was absolutely fantastic, with a comedic bent which which counteracts the underlying sadness and intolerance for someone different. Exceptional.

This experience was so amazing. The set, the effects, the orchestra, the vocals. I can’t imagine a better overall Broadway show experience than this classic! A must see!

Amazing show, can only recommend. Note that the tickets are tiered and this is the cheapest option. It's still worth it, the view was good.

We really enjoyed it and were very happy the bus was air conditioned!
