If you feel like seeing a Broadway or Off-Broadway show, and you haven’t had the luxury of purchasing tickets well in advance, consider visiting a TKTS Booth.
It’s the best place to get same-day discounted tickets (up to 50% off!). Since the Theatre Development Fund sponsors this program, purchasing from them not only benefits you but the artists who make the magic happen.
You can find them at their flagship booth in Times Square, which has been operating for over 40 years. Additional booths can also be found at South Street Seaport, Downtown Brooklyn, and Lincoln Center.
It is recommended that you get there early in the morning because tickets can be competitive. Also, if you download the TKTS app, you’ll be able to see a real-time display of what is currently on sale. Only six tickets can be purchased per person.
To circumvent this, however, simply bring one other person with you to purchase tickets in their name instead.
New York City is famous worldwide for its captivating Broadway performances. You won’t want to leave the city without having seen one. With TKTS, finding a ticket is easier and cheaper. Be sure to check out a booth during your visit, you might be surprised at what you find.
