The TKTS discount ticket booth that opened as a temporary “pop-up” operation on August 2, 2016, is going to stay around a while longer.
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts which partnered with the Theatre Development Fund to open a special three-month pop-up TKTS booth at the David Rubenstein Atrium’s Zucker box office at Broadway and West 62nd Street, has decided to extend its operation through January 28, 2017.
The Zucker box office had already offered discount tickets to shows and concerts at Lincoln Center. Starting August 2 it also began offering discounted tickets to Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. It offers the same selection as the other TKTS locations in Times Square (pictured), South Street Seaport and Downtown Brooklyn.
TKTS at Lincoln Center is open Tuesdays–Saturdays from noon to 7 PM. Same-day tickets will be sold for all available evening performances. Matinee tickets will be sold the day before the performance in addition to the day of the performance. TKTS discount tickets are mostly 50 percent off and have a per-ticket service charge of $4.50. Week-of tickets will still be available for Lincoln Center’s performances.
“Expanding the residency for another three months will give us the opportunity to be at the Zucker box office while the Lincoln Center season is in full swing,” said Victoria Bailey, TDF’s Executive Director. “The feedback to this experiment has been very positive, and we’re excited to see how this location fares during the winter months.”
