Even though there's a steady rise in the popularity of films and tv shows, many people still crave going to the theater and watching some live-action Broadway shows and musicals. This is most particularly popular in New York, where Broadway shows are part of their culture.

With so many great shows today for everyone, not all can actually get the chance of watching these shows because mostly, the ticket prices can get quite expensive. But fear not.

There are actually some handy tips out there that will make things easier for you to procure discount or cheap Broadway tickets. Here are some tips that you should check out:

Go to TKTS. On the day of your chosen Broadway show, head on to a Theatre Development Fund's TKTS booth, where the most Broadway hit tickets are on sale usually up to 50% off. There are three TKTS booth in New York: one in Manhattan, one near the South Street Seaport, and one in Brooklyn.

Purchase a Standing Room Only and Rush tickets. Rush day tickets usually just cost about $25 a pop, but you have to be quick and go to the theater the moment they open up to check. A Standing Room Only ticket means you will just stand throughout the show, but a highly cheaper option.

Search tickets online. If you don't prefer waiting in line at a TKTS booth, then download the TodayTix app and browse online for discount ticket deals on your favorite Broadway show. Other great online sources are also found at nytix.com, BroadwayBox, Broadway Insider and Entertainment-Link. It's much more convenient because you can plan on your viewings for weeks in advance, and you can have access to a lot of Broadway ticket deals.

Sign up for a TDF membership. For a less than $35 a year, members of the TDF can purchase discounted Broadway ticket prices not found anywhere else. Eligible people that can apply for a membership include students and retirees, full-time freelancers, teachers, non-profit staff, recent graduates, union members, etc. Other certain perks are up for grabs if you're a member, so think about that when you want to save up and watch Broadway.
