Good news, uptown theater fans! The TKTS discount ticket booth is set to reopen its Lincoln Center location once more, with plans to relaunch Tuesday, September 6.
Located indoors in Lincoln Center’s David Rubenstein Atrium (61 West 62nd Street between Broadway and Columbus Avenue), the uptown TKTS booth run by theatrical not-for-profit TDF (formerly known as the Theatre Development Fund) will resume selling discounted tickets marked down as much as 50 percent to same-day matinee and evening shows and next-day matinees on Broadway, Off-Broadway and of course, Lincoln Center theater, dance and music performances. Originally opened in 2016, the Lincoln Center TKTS closed on March 13, 2020 and had yet to reopen. The booth will now operate from 11am to 6pm Tuesday through Saturday.
“All of us at TDF are excited to reopen TKTS Lincoln Center so we can once again serve local residents and visitors eager to get the best prices and locations to Broadway, Off-Broadway and Lincoln Center performances,” said Michael Naumann, TDF’s Managing Director in a press release. “The demand for tickets has been growing at our Times Square location as folks return to the theatre, so we felt this was the right time to reopen our satellite booth.”
The original TKTS Times Square booth (located at W47th Street and Broadway) remains open seven days a week, operating Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays from 3 pm to 8 pm, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 11 am to 8 pm and Sundays from 11 am to 7 pm.
