my bestie and I have just come back from NYC, on Broadway we saw:- Memphis (totally recommend!) Anything Goes (brilliant old world musical, loved it) Jersey Boys (my favourite show both sides of the Atlantic) Mary Poppins (good clean fun) & Priscilla QOTD (preferred UK show, but still loved it).
Off-Broadway we saw:- Avenue Q (preferred it over here, but still a great show) Rent (bored me rigid, but my friend loved it)
We only used TKTS twice, once for Priscilla as we didnt get lottery & at the end of our stay we were at Seaport & randomly decided we wanted to see a show, so went to the TKTS booth there and got tickets for Mary Poppins.
The rest of the time, we used vouchers from Broadwayworld, which my friend signed up to before we left and we took the vouchers with us.
Only difference was Jersey Boys, the tickets we got were direct from the box office, as they were one row behind the rows we had the vouchers for and they were $12 each cheaper.
The queues at Seaport are much smaller than they are directly in Times Square, though they do move really quite quickly.
I hate you! You're a b*stard! ..... Ohhhhhh sh*t!
I've seen the real world from my caravan window...... and they can keep it!

If you are looking for something totally different and visually stunning definitely check out Fuerza Bruta. It is more performance art than theatre but it will be a night to remember!
I love Jersey Boys and everyone at the TKTS booth (I bought all my tickets from here, all were 50% and great seats) is always buying for Jersey Boys. I would say the West End cast is a lot better than on Broadway but it is always a great show!
