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

TKTS Discount Broadway Tickets - Get Discount Broadway Tickets in Advance

New 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.

TKTS Booth
