    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.

    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

    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.

    Beware of other individuals on the square claiming to be ticket sellers, as the tickets may not be legitimate.

    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.

    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...

    If you're going to buy tkts with friends, know that to guarantee seats together, you need to pay on ONE credit card (or cash).

    There's an iPhone app called At The Booth that lets you see what's on sale and how long the line. Use that to plan when you go to the booth and what night. Good tool.
