Play-goers will be able to purchase tickets for a set of four Broadway plays making pit-stops in Las Vegas, and tickets to individual shows will be available later in the fall. Prices will range from $99 to $309 for the four-show packages and individual show tickets are expected to be in the $24 to $89 ballpark.
