Opening in NY Times Square in 1973, TKTS is the official discount ticket seller for same-day tickets in New York. With 3 locations (Times Square, South Street Seaport, and Lincoln Center), they exclusively sell same-day and next-day tickets to Broadway and Off-Broadway shows at great discounts (next-day tickets only available at South Street Seaport and Lincoln Center locations).
On especially busy days, people have been known to line-up up to 2 hours before opening, with an average daily sale of upwards of 7,000 tickets being sold. An institution of the Broadway theater community for over 46 years, it is difficult to mention tickets from Broadway shows without talking about TKTS.
Recently, the operating organization of TKTS in New York, TDF (Theatre Development Fund - a not for profit organization) granted us an official license, and as such, TKTS will have its first official locations here in Japan.
TKTS Japan offers the best in Japanese entertainment content, all at great discounted prices. Exclusively selling same-day and next-day tickets, we offer tickets to not only the latest musicals and plays, but also Japanese traditional performance arts (Kabuki and Noh), musical performances, sporting events, art exhibitions and much, much, more.
By striving to bring the best in Japanese entertainment content to those patrons who are not as familiar with theater and stage shows, our great prices make it that much easier for them to enjoy.
Our company philosophy has always been one of making all forms of entertainment more accessible to everyone.
Through TKTS Japan, we hope to create a new environment where the hurdles to viewing live entertainment are lowered, creating new and exciting interactions between shows and audiences, and working to make entertainment that much more accessible to a wide variety of people.
