TKTS comes to BKLN
Starting July 10, discount tickets to Broadway shows will be offered at the new TKTS booths opening at MetroTech. The Theatre Development Funds already runs two booths in Manhattan, offering tickets up to 50% their regular price. More than 50 million tickets have been sold since it opened in 1973. TKTS doesn’t offer tickets to any Brooklyn events yet, but that is about to change, as BAM and other groups looks to sell at the booths as well. In the 1980s Brooklyn had a TKTS booth, first on Fulton St. and then on Montague St., but after dismal sales, it closed in 1993. TKTS Brooklyn will be open Monday-Friday, 11 AM-6 PM.
