A $110 top ticket price for regular seats at three big Broadway musicals

The $100 (Ђ84) ticket barrier has been broken.

"Monty Python's Spamalot," "Wicked" and "Mamma Mia!" _ three of Broadway's most popular musicals _ now charge $110 (Ђ92) for their regular orchestra seats.

And the price climbs even more once you tack on fees that certain theaters have _ such as a $1.25 facilities fee for shows playing in theaters owned by the Shubert Organization or service and handling charges levied if you order tickets through Ticketmaster or Telecharge.

But nobody seems to mind paying the price. All three shows do hefty business each week, particularly "Wicked" and "Spamalot," which regularly sell out.

Even plays are inching toward the $100 (Ђ84) mark. "Doubt," this year's Tony-winning best play, has a top price of $96.25 (Ђ80.6).

And then there are premium tickets, which at "Wicked," for example, go for $250 (Ђ209) each for prime center seats in the orchestra section, literally the best seats in the house.

For the moment, other musicals, such as "The Lion King" and "Avenue Q" are holding at $100 (Ђ84) or a little less, for their regular orchestra seats.

But with the holidays approaching, most shows will be jacking up prices for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's. "The Lion King," for example, will have a $115 (Ђ96) top regular ticket price for the orchestra and front mezzanine for Thanksgiving week, Nov. 22-27, Christmas week, Dec. 19-24, and New Year's week, Dec. 26-31. Its premium tickets will go from $200 (Ђ167) to $250 (Ђ209), AP reported. V.A.
