We have always liked the TKTS booths and loved being able to get tickets (to matinees) a day early at the South Street stand. We recently tried the Brooklyn booth and it was so simple with absolutely zero line. We had plans to buy for the next-day matinee, but bought for that night instead because there was so much available.... More

Still a great way to buy, if you can wait to see what are the offers for that day. I bought two tickets for the musical we wanted to see, at a fair price, compared to what we would have paid otherwise. We went late afternoon and got in quickly, but if you wait you might lose the better seats.

Sunday afternoon, hot and muggy, line looked too long for matinee,so we passed. Later in day with very lucky timing, right after a downpour,with only a few people in line for the Sunday evening shows we scored 2 tix for Motown. I have heard the line moves fast, up to 1/2 hour wait, but not bad for a 50 %... More

Definitely give the TKTS booth a try for same day show tickets at a reduced price. Now you must line up in a huge line but this line moves very quickly....took me about a half hour to reach the booth but its worth it as you will get your tickets a cut rate. Smack in the middle of Times Square... More

Great place to get cheaper tickets. Just go with a list of several plays you may want to see and listen to the kids recommending shows, we have changed our minds several times based on their particular play and have only disliked Momma Mia. (PS the movie was much better and the songs are good, but as a play on... More

Getting 40-50% off theater tickets is a must! The lines look horrifying but once the booth opens, it goes pretty quickly. Talk to the people around you in line - many are locals who know the best shows to check out - some of which you've never heard of before.

The lines look long but they move surprisingly fast and there are plenty of staff around the queues to ask about different shows while you wait. We booked tickets for a performance of Bullets Over Broadway and received 50% discount which priced the tickets at $80 per person. We asked about a few different shows and most were around this...

This a great place for same-day discounted show tickets if you don't expect the moon. I've generally gotten a 30-40% discount, and TKTS sells the "best available" seats, so generally the discount is off tickets with a full price in the $120-$150 range. I believe the show sets the discount percentage. The most popular shows, such as Wicked and The... More

Yes, the lines look long, but if you are seeing more than one show (I saw 5) and are returning to TKTS within 7 days of your last purchase, you can cut to the express lane by just showing your previously purchased ticket. Also, I did not know that there are two separate lines, one for plays and one for... More

This is a discount ticket outlet for the Broadway shows. When we go to NYC we always go to TKTS. Save 40-50%. But early to get better selection. For example if it opens at 3pm. Go by 230 or earlier. Lines move pretty fast. We got there at 3pm and landed in a huge line. Even with the long line... More
