About 300 people were in line early today (Saturday) for "Wicked" tickets, including some people who had been huddled since the wee hours. Then at 10 a.m., phone and online sales began.
Yet as of noon, a quick survey of 'Wicked" dates on Ticketswest showed that there were still plenty of good tickets left for many (but not all) performances. With 16 performances (May 18-29) and over 40,000 seats available, this show has a much larger inventory than, say, your average Elton John concert.
Make sure you go directly to the actual TicketsWest site, www.ticketswest.com. That's because if you do a simple search for "ticketswest" you'll actually dredge up some third-party ticket brokers that might charge you over the regular price.
For instance, I just typed in "ticketswest" to google and the top entry was something called Got The Tix, which wanted to sell me one ticket for $418.
The true price range on Ticketswest is $37.50 to $142.50.
