Getting tickets to the latest off-Broadway production of Stephen Sondheim’s “Meerrily We Roll Along” isn’t easy.
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Jonathan Groff, Lindsay Mendez and a who’s who of popular stage veterans, “Merrily” quickly sold out every performance at the New York Theater Workshop from its November previews, which opened December 12 for its graduation in January 2023.
Not bad for a show that flopped when it premiered on Broadway in 1981.
However, things have clearly changed.
So if you want to see Sondheim’s ahead-of-the-time musical, which chronicles the troubled friendship between composer Franklin Shepard and his two lifelong comrades — writer Mary and lyricist/playwright Charley — go there are a few ways to make that happen before the show ends on January 24th.
One could a) wait in line for the cancellation before the show starts, b) apply for the CheapTix lottery, or c) keep checking the venue’s website to see if anything changes.
Or d) You could buy seats on the secondary market.
There are just a few problems.
Tickets are only available for a handful of performances and cost a pretty penny.
The lowest price we found at Vivid Seats was for the December 9th performance.
At the time of publication, tickets start at $1447 before fees.
As Franklin Shepard of “Merrily” says, “The worst vice in the world is advice, so I don’t give it,” but at least it’s an option.
Rather than leave you in the dark, we’ve listed below the best ticket prices we could find for the 199-seat New York Theater Workshop on Vivid Seats.
