Those who wish to surprise friends or family members with theatre tickets for the holidays may want to eliminate the guess work — Did they already see this show? Can they go on this date? — and buy TKTS Gift Certificates, now available from Theatre Development Fund (TDF).
Available in denominations of $25, $50 and $100, TKTS Gift Certificates work like cash at the two Manhattan TKTS ticket booths, located in Duffy Square (Broadway and 47th Street) and in Lower Manhattan at the South Street Seaport (corner of Front and John streets). The two TKTS booths enable theatregoers to purchase same-day discount theatre tickets to productions on and off Broadway.
Interested ticket buyers can purchase the gift certificates in three ways: at the aforementioned TKTS booths (cash or traveler's checks), on line at TDF's website (credit cards only) or by phone at (212) 221-0885, ext. 0 (credit cards only).
Theatre Development Fund is located on the web at www.tdf.org.
