I have been here many times and have waited as long as 45 minutes in line for tickets. On this visit the line was very long but still the wait was less than 25 minutes. Well worth the 50% discount we got on our tickets. They are doing construction in the area so it is even more congested, but don't... More

This is a great way to get discounted tickets to Broadway shows. We queued up for about 40 minutes one afternoon for tickets to see Pippin. The service was fast and friendly when you finally made your way to the windows. 50% discount is a great saving for any tourist to Broadway. Great way for tourists to see a Broadway... More

Went to TKTS and got my discount ticket for the matinee. Went back to stand in line to get tickets for the evening show. Because I had my ticket stub for the previous show, I was allowed to go to the front of the line and purchase my evening ticket. Apparently if you have a ticket stub for a show... More

I would always get my tickets for any shows here whilst in NYC. It helps it was right outside my hotel, but the location in the centre of Times Square is great! The tickets are a good price and the staff are very knowledgeable! Why would you go to the theatre to get tickets when you can just go here!?

Considering what the people behind the windows must have to put up with everyday, their service was fantastic. The best perk is the slip of paper that allows you to bypass the line if you return within the next 7 days and can show your receipt from your first purchase. Saved us a ton of time!

I had flexibility and decided to go with a matinee show on a Saturday. I only needed 1 ticket and selected Kinky Boots. Ticket was 40% off retail but the seat was literally at the very top row of the theater. It actually wasn't that bad and it was a great show. Bottom line: if you don't care where you... More

On a recent visit to New York I decided to experience TKTS to get my tickets at 40% off. First off a few things you need to know - for afternoon shows the box office opens at 11am so you have to get in line by 9am and for evening tickets the box office opens at 3pm so you have... More

The TKTS booth in Times Square was pretty useful for our trip to NYC. We were able to gets great seats for the Janis Joplin musical but Jersey Boys wasn't available. Ended up just purchasing the tickets on stubhub. The queue is not shaded so get their early. Line seemed to grow very long, very fast and the popular shows... More

Forget about it unless you have hours to waste of your precious holiday time. Every day the line was miles long and it was just as easy to go to the actual theatre and get your tickets. that's what I did and I got a ticket that should have $180 for $60 so you can get specials at the theatres...

Queued for over an hour, and when we got to the front were informed tickets were at cheapest $75 each. Not the price I expected for a so called half price hut. Read reviews since that actual theatre box offices offer better packages so may be worth considering for better deals
