I know we're not supposed to share specifics that are available, but are there any new or existing services that have more shows available than the others do?

Are you asking for the BEST papering service? I can't speak to all of them but Gold Club is trash. There's been very little available and everything the last 2-3 weeks have been nothing worth noting.

I joined Gold Club a few weeks ago and I've actually enjoyed it thus far. I've seen 2 shows and will be seeing a 3rd this week. None of these have been Broadway productions, but it's been a nice way to check out some shows I'd never want to pay full price to see.

Will Call has had (I believe) two Broadway plays since the reopening, plus a handful of off-off-bway titles.

Anyone know a good service that has papered tickets to other non-theater events in the new york area? Like sporting events, arenas, mainstream concerts, popular comedy, etc. I remember seeing one site that looked promising but I forget the name now.

Theaterextras often has these. I've had the service for years and there are ups and downs with it but its been good lately. Note that sports events are often not the nominal fee but usually in the $15-20 range.

I got some good shows through Gold Club earlier in the year, including a few Broadway shows, so it really depends on when you're using it, but it has definitely paid for itself already.  Just started Theater Extras and the offers look promising though I haven't actually gotten tickets to anything yet, and it seems more extensive than Gold Club.  I think both have had things like comedy shows and baseball games.

If you sign up on their website I think both Theater Extras and Pay by Play will email you with a list of recent offerings.

Show-Score also generally has some good options though you usually have to be quick.  The plus is you don't 'have to pay a subscription though.

For a monthly five bucks, you can get a lot of offerings on Club Free Time. I saw Paradise Square twice through it, also Birthday Candles and another Broadway play I can’t remember. I recommend if your focus isn’t just Broadway. 


I am big. It’s the REVIVALS that got small.

I only have play by play but think it has a good mix of non theater offerings. Very little sports since a reupped in April but good selection of concerts, dance, some offbeat stuff. There have been some MSG events but not sports.
