Question - Theatre Tickets?

Hi, family of four with 2 teens staying at the Westin Times Square next wk.

Planning on seeing Spiderman on Broadway and Madame Tussads Wax Museum.

Any websites that sell less expensive theatre tickets?

Also any recommendations for restaurants in the Times Square area? (looking for unique and different restaurants) No Chain Restaruants.

Any tips appreciated.

There is a discount for "Spiderman" at broadwaybox.com.

Locals and frequent visitors to NYC will tell you to steer away from Times Square and branch out to other areas for eating. What type of food interests your family?

If you walk west from Times Square to 9th Avenue you'll have a million non-chain restaurant choices. Search on this site for Ziggy's Hell's Kitchen guide.

Look at Broadway Box for tickets. All plays are NOT discounted. I would highly recommend buying your tickets ahead of time and not wasting time standing in TKTS lines! You can pick your seats and KNOW you are getting what you want!!!
