* Although Chicago Theatre tickets are rarely cheap, you can find some great deals on BroadwayinChicago.com/specialdeals. Right now you can get Tues, Wed and Thurs performances of Jersey Boys & Dirty Dancing for roughly half price. I wouldn’t buy them online, but would call with the code to get the best seats (just ask the operator for the best seats you can get with the code-main floor or front of the first balcony). If you sign up for their e-mail you get advance notice of the deals.
* If you can go on a moments notice, you can use hottix.org for reduced last minute tickets.
