Theatre Development Fund TKTS Broadway Ticket Booths - New York, USA

Visiting New York City? Love Musicals and interested in experiencing all Broadway has to offer?

If this is you, I would highly recommend taking a visit to the Theatre Development Fund TKTS Discount Booths in New York which sell tickets for both Broadway and off Broadway musicals and plays at up to 50% off the original sale price for same day shows! There are dozens of shows on sale every single day, so there is surely something to suit everyone. 

TKTS ticket booth in New York city

On my recent trip to NYC we visited the Times Square Booth and decided to purchase tickets for Mamma Mia which were 50% off the original sales price, and we were lucky enough to receive amazing seats at the production! I would also recommend arriving early. We joined the line over an hour before the booths opened with the lines multiplying in length behind us by the minute.

There are three TDF TKTS Discount Booths in NYC and the location of these are given on their website, 
They are:

"1. The Times Square Booth sells day-of-performance discount tickets. At Window #1 you may purchase full-price tickets to future performances for all shows and same-day full-price tickets to shows that aren't being discounted.
2. The Downtown Brooklyn Booth sells tickets to evening performances on the day of the performance and matinee tickets the day before as well as tickets to Brooklyn performing arts events.
3. The South Street Seaport Booth sells tickets to evening performances on the day of the performance and matinee tickets the day before."

 If you are visiting NYC for an extended period of time you could consider purchasing a TKTS 7-Day Fast Pass which allows you to skip the queue and walk straight up to the window with your initial ticket stub to purchase your next tickets.

If the Arts are for you make sure you take advantage of this opportunity on your next trip to the Big Apple.
