TKTS Discount Broadway Tickets - Get Discount Broadway Tickets in Advance
How to avoid the long lines and extreme temperatures of New York City and get your discount TKTS tickets in advance

TKTS Ticket Booth in Times SquareNew York City tourists regularly flock to the TKTS ticket booths in Times Square, South Street Seaport and the Brooklyn locations to buy same-day discount Broadway tickets to a variety of Broadway musicals and plays. But what never ceases to amaze us is that people don't realize that you can get exactly the same discount Broadway tickets in advance if you use a discount code at TeleCharge, TicketMaster, or at the box office.

Truth be told, tickets purchased with a discount code at the box office are ALWAYS cheaper than ones purchased at the TKTS ticket stand because the ticket stand charges an additional fee of $4.00 per ticket, but the box office does not.

There are many other disadvantages to the TKTS booth as well that should be considered when you are deciding how to get your discount Broadway tickets. At the TKTS booth, obviously you have no choice but to wait until the last minute, whereas with nytix.com you have the option of getting your discount tickets well in advance and from the comfort of home (either by phone or on the internet). This allows you to avoid many of the annoyances of the TKTS booth, which includes waiting in a depressingly long line, being subject to the elements (e.g. rain, snow, heat, etc.), and being hassled by a multitude of irritating vendors hawking their wares.

By getting your tickets in advance through nytix.com, you are afforded a wide selection of Broadway shows to choose from - at the TKTS booth, you just have to hope that they happen to be offering the show you want (and often, they aren't). Getting your tickets in advance with nytix.com also provides you with greater choice when it comes to seat selection, whereas at the TKTS booth you usually just have to take whatever tickets happen to be at the top of the pile.

You also have more payment options when you buy discounted Broadway tickets through nytix.com. At the TKTS booth at the South Street Seaport and at the one in the Brooklyn location as well, only cash is accepted to purchase tickets. When using nytix discounts, though, you can use credit cards when you order online or by phone, and you can choose credit or cash if you're buying your tickets directly at the theater box office.
