In addition to being “America’s Finest City”, San Diego is also still one of the biggest cities in America so it should not be any wonder that there is excellent theater in town. Most of the top touring production make a stop in San Diego so one need not trudge all the way up to L.A. to see the best productions. (Besides, isn’t it the sworn duty of all San Diegans to not like L.A.?)
The San Diego Civic theater downtown is the largest and best equipped venue in town. It is a lovely place to catch any performance in my opinion — whether it be a Broadway production, ballet, opera, or whatever. The Spreckels theater is the smaller venue in downtown and hosts many excellent performances itself.
So if you are looking to find tickets to a show there are a couple of ways to go about that. The first thing to do is try to buy tickets from TicketMaster. We have links to where you can do that on our resource page. But if you don’t find the tickets you really want there, here are the top few aftermarket ticket resources that often come up with much better seats:
1. First, check out these ticket vendors for pricing:
2. Next come back and check our favorite after market vendors:
Source 1 – These guys usually have an excellent inventory and are quite competitive in their prices.
Source 2 – These guys are comparable to Source 1 in their inventory but have the added advantage of allowing you to sell tickets as well as buy them.
Source 3 – These guys seem to have a decent inventory and often have the lowest prices prices of the three.
Anyway, these are the resources I usually use. Have a look and let us know your reviews of these options in the comments. Plus if you have another favorite let me know and I’ll add it to my list if I like it too.
Any questions? If not, enjoy your show (and drive safely!)
