A little bit of advice for all theatre goers. While i love going to the theatre and lived in NYC (recent Houston transplant) where TKTS allowed me to see a lot more theatre than most. If you don't know TKTS the y offer broadway shows for half price the day of the show.
Houston has the same service, www.stubdog.com where you can find loads of entertainment for half off.
