    Here's a tip! The TKTS 7-Day Fast Pass allows you to return to the Times Square ticket booth within 7 days of a TKTS purchase & walk right up to window #1. Avoid the long lines & enjoy NYC!

    TKTS is excellent. I kept an eye on all the websites for tickets for weeks, and I saved $120 on a pair of tickets the first show and $80 on my second pair. Can't beat it.

    Worth the wait. Got 5 tickets with great seats all together to Chicago day of show (Saturday) for an affordable price. Many shows to choose from.

    Absolutely worth waiting in line. Have a couple shows in mind in case the one you want is sold out by the time you reach the booth. Discount tickets on Broadway shows... can't beat it.

    Buy day-of-show tickets for 1/2 price + $4.50 service charge.12 windows really reduce the wait in line, and there's a window just for plays. Sometimes cheaper to go to box office for rear mezz seats.

    If you are eyeing specific show, need to get there before it opens and wait. If you don't care what shoe you see going right before the closing will get you something. Certain days are tougher

    Get there 45 mins early before they open at 3pm. Lines look long but they move fast. We were in a zig zag line but were surprised it only took 30mins. Our tix were $73 for Cripple of Inishmaan.

    Generally it can take 20min waiting in the line but if you have a ticket for the last 7 days you can go directly to the cashiers. The deals worth it, but it sucks to wait jn line during the winter.

    Super long line I suggest waiting an hour and a half early before it opens at 3pm daily. Totally worth it for the price you pay for Broadway shows (30-50% off!)

    I don't know what I would do without TKTS.If you want to see a TOP Broadway Show,have friends come in town at the last minute, and haven't reserved your tickets,this is THE place to go!Half-Price too!

    Go to the downtown location if you know what you want (check the app) and if it's a broadway show. I think they're open earlier and lines are definitely shorter.

    If you go at 5:30 and want to see a play, they may say it's just one line, but ask up front and they let you in to the much much shorter play line

    Be smart, bring a friend since lines are long and you can only purchase a maximum of four tickets per person! Take turns holding places in line to check on deals and take bathroom or snack breaks.

    Get the TKTS app. It'll give you info on the latest shows. It won't be helpful for TODAY's shows necessarily but you can kind of suss out the situation from yesterday's shows etc.

    The app is very handy to see which shows are on the board without physically going to the site, and for details on the shows.

    Be warned: the people hanging out along the line with show flyers don't work for tkts, they work for the show they're promoting Any information they give you should be considered from that perspective

    The play express line is faster, especially since you don't have to come right when the booth opens to use it! Come a bit later and feel like a VIP while using the play express.

    Arrive early for best deals, best seats are sold at the beginning of the day. Can't wait that long? Come back around 5:30, 6:00 when the line dies down for last minute deals. Read more

    If you're a fan of plays (as opposed to musicals), the "Play Express" line is an outstanding way to breeze through quickly, even at the last minute.

    Look for Patron Services Reps in RED for help navigating the booth! The line usually starts about an hour before we open. It moves fast, so pick two or three shows in advance to get out quicker! Read more

    TKTS seems like the best deal, but most shows offer cheaper seats when the box office opens or lotteries. And TKTS seats are very hit and miss. Do some research before you wait in line...

    Have a general idea of what a regularly priced ticket costs (look online or ask at the show's box office before)... TKTS just tried to sell me a $45 regular price ticket for $52.
