Times Square TKTS Booth Changes Policies to Offer More Options to Ticketbuyers

One of New York City’s top tourist attractions isn’t a museum or a historic building, it’s a booth.  Well known to Broadway fans, the TKTS booth in Times Square has been selling discount day of the show tickets to theatergoers for four decades.  But whether you’ve only used the service once or are there every weekend you should be aware that the Theater Development Fund, which is the nonprofit that operates the TKTS booth, are changing some of the policies.

Previously, tickets to matinee performances were sold in the morning with tickets to evening performances not going on sale until 3PM.  Now tickets to even performances are available as soon as the booth opens at 10AM.   The booth is also selling full-price tickets to  upcoming dates of future shows without discounts for the first time — and the benefit of buying full-price tickets at the TKTS booth is knowing that your $4 service fee is being doing donated to the Theater Development Fund rather than the pockets of one of the many ticket selling corporate outlets (in order not to compete with the theater box offices, TKTS will not sell full-price tickets for performances on that day).  These new policies only apply to the TKTS booth in Times Square and not the satellite locations in South Street Seaport and Brooklyn.

The hours of the Times Square booth have also changed.  The booth opens for full-price sales every day starting at 10AM (11 AM on Sundays) and discount tickets go on sale when the booth opens at 10AM on Wednesday and Saturday and 11AM on Sunday, 2PM on Tuesdays, and 3PM on Monday, Thursday, and Friday.

The new policies offer more options to those looking to save a little bit of money when choosing to see a Broadway show while in New York, and the increased hours will allow theatergoers more time to nab their tickets.
