Believe it or not, I was able to see Hello Dolly on Broadway starring Bette Midler, who gained many fans from movies such as Beaches and Hocus Pocus! And nope, I didn’t buy my tickets months in advance, nor did I pay the exorbitantly high prices currently listed on broadway.com.
I was in New York City waiting in line at The Strand for a book signing (more on that later!) when I decided to see whether I could come back after Christmas to see Hello Dolly. The lowest prices for shows in December were $499, so unfortunately, it didn’t look like I’d be able to catch my childhood favorite movie star Bette in the show. I noticed a link for Stubhub and decided to just take a look. Well, lo and behold, there were two tickets for that night’s show for under $100 each!
