Discount booth TKTS Lincoln Center will officially re-open just in time for fall, arguably the most exciting season when it comes to Broadway shows.
What that means, in practical terms, is that, starting Tuesday, September 6, you’ll be able to snag tickets for up to 50% off for same-day matinee and evening performances as well as next-day matinee shows playing on Broadway, Off-Broadway and Lincoln Center productions. Woohoo!
You’ll find the booth inside Lincoln Center’s David Rubenstein Atrium at 61 West 62nd Street between Broadway and Columbus Avenue. The destination will stay open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11am to 6pm.
The news is a big deal, and not just because of the discounted seats on offer: TKTS Lincoln Center has been closed since March 13, 2020 due to the pandemic. Originally launched in August of 2016, the stand complements the main TKTS discount booth in Times Square on Broadway and 47th Street, which is currently open seven days a week. You’ll again have two ways to pick up cheap tickets on the fly and that is cause for celebration.
“The demand for tickets has been growing at our Times Square location as folks return to the theatre, so we felt this was the right time to reopen our satellite booth,” said Michael Naumann, the managing director of TDF, the non-profit service organization for the performing arts that manages the various TKTS locations.
