How to Buy Broadway Theater Tickets

2/28/2013 - By Marea Edynak

 Most visitors to NYC want to see a Broadway Show. The first question asked is, “How do I buy Tickets”.


If you are coming from out of the country the easiest way is online.








Tip for Travelers: They often have discount tickets and ordering online is easier than standing in line. Usually they email an e-ticket which you can print out on your computer. Be prepared to pay a service charge for the convenience.


You can also download the ILoveNYTheater App on your iPhone for easy ticketing on the go. Click

In Person

If you are in the Times Square area, this is probably the best way to get the best seats and there is no mark up or service charge


·         Visit the theater’s Box Office.


·         Go  to the Broadway Concierge & Ticket Center for  tickets to just about every Broadway and many Off-Broadway shows


Discount Tickets from TKTS Booths

Tickets are discounted from 20 to 50% off the full price for Same Day performances for Broadway, Off-Broadway, dance and music events.

There is a $4.00 service charge.


TKTS Discount Booths at 3 Locations


1.       The Times Square Booth sells day-of-performance discount tickets. At Window #1 you may purchase full-price tickets to future performances for all shows and same-day full-price tickets to shows that aren't being discounted. Located "under the red steps" in Father Duffy Square on
Broadway and 47th Street


2.     The Downtown Brooklyn Booth sells tickets to evening performances on the day of the performance and matinee tickets the day before as well as tickets to Brooklyn performing arts events. In 1 MetroTech Center at the corner of Jay Street and Myrtle Avenue Promenade.

3.      The South Street Seaport Booth sells tickets to evening performances on the day of the performance and matinee tickets the day before. As of February 2013 this booth is still closed due to water damage from Hurricane Sandy.  At the corner of Front and John Streets, near the rear of the Resnick/ Prudential Building at 199 Water Street


Tip for Travelers: Beware of tickets sold on the street!
Tickets not purchased legally may be scams or illegal tickets and will not be honored at the theatre.
