Free Stuff in New York
The only caveat is that some of these (like Shakespeare in the Park and Summer Stage) require a significant investment in time, but otherwise, they are terrific.
I saw "Twelfth Night" in the Park in 1989, and it starred Michelle Pfeiffer, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Jeff Goldblum, Gregory Hines, John Amos, Stephen Collins, Charlaine Woodard, and Fisher Stevens and it was an incredible evening, hilariously funny (like "Twelfth Night" should be!) and fileld with great performances.
I also saw a version of "The Seagull" in Central Park in 2001, starring Kevin Kline, Meryl Streep, Christopher Walken, Natalie Portman, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and John Goodman. Also incredible. So worth the hours and hours and hours of waiting to get in.
There are distribution points elsewhere in the city for Shakespeare in the Park tickets (eg, Brooklyn) and you can sometimes walk right up and get tickets with no wait.
Don't tell anyone.
That's the power of the Milepoint forums! Good to know, although they did not exist (AFAIK) in 1989!
That's like the TKTS booths. The one in Times Square always has a huge line, but we walked right up to the window at the one in South Street Seaport a couple of weeks ago. It always pays to know the secrets.
