10. Theater tickets.

True, nothing beats Broadway. But it’s certainly a lot more expensive to see a hit musical in Manhattan than in Tel Aviv. The price of an orchestra seat to the remake of the Israeli classic "Kazablan," now playing at the Tel Aviv Cameri Theater, will cost you NIS 320, or just a bit more than $90. An orchestra ticket to the Broadway box-office hit "Matilda" will cost you more than twice that amount - $181.53. So what you’ll save on a show in Israel could pay for dinner, or at least dessert, for two afterward.
