    The one show I don't want to miss is Penn & Teller.

    I'm seeing travel zoo tickets for $45. I'm torn between getting this or trying to see if I can get a better deal on the day of the show (4/17). Money is tight so its a tough decision.

    Any thoughts on how popular this may be or the amount I could reasonably expect to pay on day of show?


    Thanks
    Al

    IMHO, the "cheap seats" aren't worth it at any price.

    I took same day 2nd balcony tickets for "free" and the people in the section below me were getting nosebleeds.

    No higher than mezzanine or you will be wasting your money.

    Ah you must have been in the earbleed seats, where your eardrums pop from the extreme altitude.

    just went to Penn & Teller. Really wasn't all that, IMO Mac King is more entertaining

    Agree with both. Went cause we really like them on tv. We were equally disappointed with the show. However I feel part of the disappointment was also due to the cheap nosebleed seats.

    If you go I’d agree to try and get as close as possible.

    Not sure how me asking for ticket options for a show I want to see translates to a request for bad reviews but thanks for spreading the hate.

    I have seen them touring many times and not only think they are the best magic act on the planet but quite possibly the best entertainers currently working. I look forward to seeing them on their home stage where I can see some on the more elaborate pieces.

    This is a bulletin board. Unsolicited opinions are part of the package.

    We sat close at Penn & Teller. It helps because after all, it's a magic show. The show is pretty corny, but we still had fun. It helps that I enjoy Penn's rants. Shows don't generally sell out so you might try the half-price booth after lunch.

    Do you know any CET Diamond members in town who could get you tix?

    Actually on that kind of point, do any Dismonds sell their show tickets generally or give them to friends?
