Did you know that there are three TKTS booths in New York City? Most people know that if you’re in the mood to watch a Broadway show but don’t want to pay for full price tickets, you head to the TKTS booth to grab discounted tix for same day shows.
However, most folks are only familiar with the TKTS booth located in Times Square. And unfortunately, that particular booth is always crowded — and it can take hours before you make it to the front of the line to buy your show tickets.
If you want the discounted tickets but aren’t in the mood to wait in line, there are two other TKTS locations in the city with virtually no waiting. Also, unlike the TKTS booth in Times Square, these locations also sell advance tickets to performances (in addition to same-day performances).
South Street Seaport: Sells tickets to evening performances on the day of the performance, and matinee tickets the day before.
Downtown Brooklyn: Sells tickets to evening performances on the day of the performance, and matinee tickets the day before as well tickets to Brooklyn performing arts events.
