Description of App

The Official TKTS app is the only way to get fast, accurate, real-time listings of all Broadway and Off Broadway shows available at the world famous TKTS Discount Ticket Booths in New York City.

Don’t know which show to see? That’s OK! Use this app to learn about every production listed at TKTS. If you’re looking for a New York City theatre adventure, use our Show Search feature to discover other Broadway, Off Broadway, off-Off Broadway, Dance and Music events happening all over New York.

Features:
- Real-time display of what is currently on sale at all three TKTS Discount booths.
- A comprehensive show search where you'll find what is happening onstage in New York City - including show descriptions, performance schedules, theatre locations, accessibility information and links to official show websites.
- TDF Stages - TDF's online theatre magazine featuring articles, videos and podcasts.

TKTS offers same-day tickets to Broadway and Off Broadway shows at discounts of up to 50% off full price. The Official TKTS app is directly linked to the display boards at the TKTS Discount Booths, so what you're seeing, in real time, is exactly what the people waiting in line are seeing.

The TKTS Discount Booths have become an international destination for theatre lovers from the United States and around the world since 1973. There are three locations in New York City:
(1) Times Square – Broadway and 47th Street, Manhattan - "under the red steps";
(2) South Street Seaport – in the Seaport Marketplace at the corner of Front and John Streets, Manhattan; and
(3) Downtown Brooklyn – in 1 MetroTech Center, at the corner of Jay Street and Myrtle Avenue Promenade, Brooklyn.

The Official TKTS app is offered exclusively by Theatre Development Fund (TDF), the not-for-profit performing arts service organization which operates the TKTS Discount Booths.

Version 1.2 seems to have addressed the issue te original poster was discussing with regards to the catagories not working correctly. Now all shows are broken down by genre.
