One look at regular Broadway prices and you may worry that you'll need to cash in your 401K in order to afford a night out at the theater. While there are certainly discounts, lotteries, and rush tickets floating around, you want a sure thing. We get it. Luckily, there are lots of wonderful, well-reviewed, and highly scored productions off the beaten Broadway track that save you big bucks without skimping on entertainment. Every show below sells tickets for $50 or less to every single performance. There's no catch—they're not partial view, or just for students, or only when there's a blizzard. And while these productions generally take place at smaller theaters, there are often big names involved. Our current crop includes a hilarious 'Harry Potter' parody ('Puffs'), a 'Golden Girls' satire ('Thank You For Being a Friend), and a musical revival starring a Tony nominee ('Finian's Rainbow'). So bail on Broadway and try something that's a little Off.
