Inflation Watch (Theater Edition)

Broadway had its best Thanksgiving week ever at the box office, reports The New York Times. 

Top ticket prices at selected musicals:

The Lion King: $197.50 

Wicked: $300

The Book of Mormon: $477

A little over half a century ago, a ticket to the theater in London cost $3.50. According to this 1961 British Travel ad, a mere $100 could buy you a whole week in the U.K.

Guess that's why they call them The Good Old Days.
