The extra fees charged by entertainment venues is despicable. A A $35.25 "service charge" should be included in the advertised price of the ticket - nowhere is it stated what "service" is/was performed that would justify this fee. A $7.25 "Handling fee" - when the postage to mail it was only $0.47 - is a gross overcharge. These are the fees charged by Telecharge for tickets to To Kill A Mockingbird at the Shubert Theatre, NYC.
