With dozens of productions on sale every day, there's something for everyone! TDF operates three TKTS Discount Booths in New York City: 1.

Just a small correction to some of the reviews that say "half-price" tickets. (In the old days, they called them twofers... get it?) But progress marches on. Now they're discounted UP TO 50%. So the more popular shows (and therefore the ones with fewer tickets at the booth) are 20, 30, or 40% off. Twenty percent off a $168 ticket... More

go to the red stairs in Times Square. then go to the back like you're in high school & going under the bleachers. Here is where you'll find fantastic deals on Broadway shows the night you want to go to a show! I literally walked up to the window, told the nice lady what I wanted to see and got... More

TKTS has been my go-to destination for Broadway show tickets since the 80's. The past couple of years TKTS finally decided to give some attention to customer service and it is paying off. Following TKTS on Twitter I learned of the new Fast Pass line. Purchase a ticket at TKTS and the customer will receive a Fast Pass receipt. Bring... More

This is a great New York attraction. Under the Red Steps in Times Square. Matinee days are very busy from 10 am but line is organised and moves quickly. Don't be deterred by lines. We have seen Matilda the musical and suggest you don't miss it. At today's matinee we will see You Can't Take it with You. Seats so... More

If the show is sold out then you are out of luck but otherwise half price. The selection of tickets is great all but the hottest shows are available. They need to open another location for weekends. Maybe they could do one at Columbus circle and split the difference between Lincoln center and Broadway. Also they need a Board above... More

TKTS (which, incidentally, has two other locations) is a great way to get discounted tickets to see Broadway shows. Before heading to New York, we tried to find discounted tickets online, but were wary because they usually required paying for a membership somewhere. Being novices to the whole scene, we decided to stick with the tried and true TKTS route.... More

If you're in town for a few days or more, and plan to see more than one show, you can go to the head of the line when purchasing tickets for your next show. Just bring your ticket stub, proving you purchased it within the last 7 days from TKTS and you get to skip the long line. We saw... More

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
