TKTS Offers 7-Day Fast Pass to Returning Customers

A new program was announced June 26 at the 40th Anniversary Celebration of TKTS that enables returning customers to purchase tickets without waiting in line. 

The TKTS 7-Day Fast Pass permits TKTS patrons to return to the discount ticket booth within seven days of their TKTS purchase and walk up to Window #1 with their TKTS ticket stub, avoiding the longer lines at peak hours.

"Whether you're visiting from out of town and seeing your first Broadway or Off-Broadway show, or you're a veteran Broadway fan, TDF would like to thank you for being a theatre audience member by inviting you to return to TKTS within seven days of your initial TKTS purchase without waiting on the regular TKTS lines," press notes state. "All you have to do is bring your ticket stub to Window #1, within seven days of that ticket's date, and you may purchase full- or discount-priced tickets to the available Broadway or Off-Broadway shows of your choice. TDF feels that this will help visitors who are in town for a limited period of time enjoy more theatre during their trip and save some of their time for more sightseeing."

TDF also announced that the TKTS satellite booth at South Street Seaport, which has been closed since Hurricane Sandy, is currently under reconstruction and will open sometime in July.

TKTS opened for business June 25, 1973, operated by Theatre Development Fund (TDF), a not-for-profit service organization for the performing arts. TKTS has distributed over 58.5 million tickets to Broadway, Off-Broadway, music and dance events since it first opened for business.
