Mel Brooks’s new musical Young Frankenstein is making waves for its obscenely high ticket prices, with premium seats costing as much as $496. Some possible justifications:
1. One million Tony Awards have been cumulatively won by the creative team.
2. Megan Mullally (the lady with the high-pitched voice from Will and Grace). No, that couldn’t possibly be it.
Regardless of the reason, you should perhaps take the advice of theater-guru Gabriel at ModFab when he says:
The irony, of course, is that if you’re willing to wait out the buzz and hit the box office on the day-of-show, there will be great seats available for cheap. I know, it’s ridiculous, but it’s true.
