TDF Membership

Join now. Play later.

You’re invited to join TDF* for a full year of access to the best deals on tickets to hundreds of daily Broadway, Off Broadway, music and dance productions. Though all New York-area theatres are currently closed due to the pandemic, new members can join TODAY for only $30 (regularly $40). This membership fee is fully tax-deductible. Your year of membership will begin when theatres begin to reopen and shows start performing again. It’s like pre-paying now for a full year of membership that starts on the day theatres reopen.

During this unprecedented time, TDF (which is a not-for-profit organization) and the entire arts community is facing great financial upheaval.  By joining today, you will help us weather the storm and keep us going until the lights of Broadway shine bright again!

The Fine Print


Seats for discount tickets can be anywhere in the theatre. We cannot guarantee or honor any special seating request (seating locations are determined by the box office and exchanges are not possible). If you have specific seating requirements due to a disability, please contact TDF accessibility services.


The price printed on your ticket will not be the amount you paid. Sometimes the printed price will be more than you paid because TDF is subsidizing the cost of your ticket by giving extra money to theatres to encourage new productions of artistic merit. Sometimes the printed price on the ticket will be slightly less than you paid, because a small service fee on each ticket supports TDF’s ongoing efforts to subsidize more new productions and support arts education, accessibility and outreach. Any way you look at it, you're receiving an incredible savings by buying tickets through TDF.


Our ticket services are for TDF members only. Members must be in attendance (along with his/her guests) at each performance. Many theatres require the TDF member to show a current photo ID along with proof of purchase before releasing a member's tickets. TDF tickets are not for resale. Continued use of TDF's membership program is contingent upon members' compliance with all policies set forth by TDF and the individual theatres. Late seating is always at the discretion of the theatre's management. All sales are final. No refunds or exchanges are possible, nor can TDF replace lost tickets.


The inventory available online through TDF membership is not the same as that available at the TKTS Ticket Booths. Being a member of TDF does not provide any special services at any of the TKTS Ticket Booths and one does not have to be a TDF member to make purchases at any of our booths.
