Here's our stress-free guide to getting you an
affordable ticket to your next show. 

 Here's a breakdown of the different ways RUSH work:


GENERAL RUSH: tickets available for anyone at the box office for day-of performances,
usually when the box office opens, check a shows website for more info.

STUDENT RUSH: tickets available, for those with a valid student ID, at the box office for day-of performances, usually when the box office opens.

LOTTERY RUSH: generally beginning two-and-a-half hours before every performance, patrons are invited to enter a lottery. Winners are drawn two hours before each performance,and can purchase discounted tickets.

UNDER XX RUSH: tickets available, for those with a valid ID stating they are under XX age, at the box office for day-of performances, usually when the box office opens.

STANDING ROOM ONLY: tickets available for day-of performances of sold-out shows for
a designated standing area at the back of the house.

So, where can you find out if a show has RUSH tickets?

For a Broadway or Off Broadway show, check out Playbill's lists (Bway / Off Bway) or Broadway World’s Bway listing.

StudentRush.ORG – join the site for free and get access to their list of rush policies for theatre, music, dance and more.

*Pro Tip:You can go to the shows website and see if it is listed, often it is
in a section with more info on ticket policies.


Oh, and there is TKTS... 
Those red steps in Time Square are home to more than tourist selfies.
Under those steps is a ticket booth called TKTS, which sells day-of tickets for Broadway and Off Broadway shows at usually a 50% discount, but it can range from 30-50% off.

TDF Membership -  Hands down the best deal. But, you have to do a little work for it and you have to be patient because TDF does not have everything.

TDF’s Off-Off @ 9 – If you want to see an off-Off Broadway show, there is no better deal. $9 for TDF members or $10 for the public.
