We were a little apprehensive going to an unfamiliar site but the prices were so high on the other websites, we decided to try Headout for tickets to Beautiful (Carole King musical). We are very happy. We got the best prices and the best seats on Headout and the representative was right there as promised and we were able to go in without waiting on line.
