The sale starts 11 am on Sunday, we were there 10.45 and there were only five people before us. During the wait an employee of TKTS was very helpful and offered his advice about shows to help to choose a suitable one. We got Chicago tickets with 40% discount. Very nice!

Ticket lines look long but move fast. We had a rude person waiting on us and we were only asking for other options for seats after his first suggestion for best available. He told us in a rude manner that we were welcome to pay full price at the theater if we didn't like the seats he offered. Other than... More

This was my second time using the TKTS booth in Times Square. I arrived at 2:30 to stand in line (windows open at 3p) and had completed my transaction by 3:20. Line moved quickly and efficiently. The TKTS staff was available to answer questions regarding the shows. Couple of hints: 1. Download the TKTS app. It tells you what is... More

This must be part of your New York experience if you want to watch a show. I'm a planner when it comes to my trips especially if I want to see a show so I really restrained myself from buying my tickets to Kinky boots full priced. It paid off! regular is $147 base price, tkts price was $109 all... More

Staff was wonderful while you are in line & deciding on what show to attend. Lots of suggestions & we appreciate the discounted tickets! We saw Rock of Ages & we were at the back but we were right in the center with a perfect view & the theatre isn't too large so very clear view! Tickets are still a... More

TKTS has new procedures, and if you're going for more than one night, here's how to get the best seats for the least money without standing in line for an hour or more every day. The first day you go, pick a play, not a musical and use the play line on the west side of the TKTS booths, there's... More

I love watching Broadway shows when I'm in NYC especially if the cost of the tickets are half-priced. You can get good deals here!

We bought our tickets for jersey boys here which were 83 dollars each which was a lot cheaper than other shows on broad way. It's just as easy to get a flyer for a show of your choice from the PRs around Times Square. We got our tickets for Avenue Q this way and that was only 50 dollars at... More

The fact that you can get half price tickets at this stand behind where Alicia Keys sang the famous NY song, allowed our fam of 5 to get the tickets to see Mary Poppins!! What fun! and great view of the city right there!!
