Wicked the musical is coming back to the Canon Theatre in Toronto after having performed there in 2005 and 2006. When Wicked debuted in 2005 it was an instant hit with the fans and the shows sold out quickly. This time around though the demand is down and discount Wicked tickets are being offered for some of the upcoming performances at the Canon Theatre.
The offer for up to 30% off Wicked tickets was sent by email to subscribers to the Canon Theatre’s email updates with tickets priced at up to $109 per seat for as low as $65 per seat. For fans of Wicked that purchased their tickets in advance this may not seem fair since they paid full price.
It may be partly due to the economy that the discounts for Wicked tickets are being offered for the Canon Theatre but Canada has not been hit as hard as the US so it may have to more with fans attending multiple shows on the first tour. Wicked is so popular that many fans have attended multiple performances when the show is on an extended run and this time around the promoters may have overestimated the ability of the fans to continue to do so.
Since these discounts are being offered for the first two weeks of the schedule that does not bode well for the rest of the performances set to run through November 28th. Tickets for Wicked at the Canon Theatre on the resell market have been way overpriced for a slow selling show and even we would have to admit it would be better to check with the box office first before checking with a theatre ticket broker.
You won’t see discount Wicked tickets in cities seeing Wicked for the first time. It is just too popular. Tickets for Wicked the musical can be purchased for all the cities on the tour through Preferred Seating Tickets at Wicked musical tickets.
