Theatre Development Fund (TDF)’s popular Official TKTS app is now available for Windows Phone 7. Since the Official TKTS app was released for iPhone users last December and for Android users this February, it has become one of the most downloaded New York theatre apps. Today, theatre lovers with Windows Phone 7 will be able to see, in real-time, what shows are available at all three TKTS Discount Booths – Times Square, South Street Seaport and Downtown Brooklyn. The Official TKTS app is available for download free of charge for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone 7 at www.tdf.org/tktsapp.
The Official TKTS app is the only way to get accurate, real-time listings of all Broadway and Off Broadway shows available at the world-famous TKTS Discount Ticket Booths in New York City. The Official TKTS app is connected to the same software that runs the TKTS electronic boards, so app users see exactly what is being shown on the boards.
The Official TKTS Windows Phone 7 app features:
– real-time display of what is currently on sale at all three TKTS Discount booths.
– 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 Web sites for Broadway, Off Broadway, off-Off Broadway, dance and music productions.
– TDF Stages – TDF's online theatre magazine featuring articles and original videos.
TKTS is a service of Theatre Development Fund (TDF), a not-for-profit service organization for the performing arts. TDF has three TKTS Discount Booths for same-day tickets to Broadway and Off Broadway shows at up to 50% off full price: the new Times Square TKTS Booth "under the red glass steps" in the Duffy Square; the Lower Manhattan TKTS Booth at South Street Seaport at the corner of Front and John Streets and the Downtown Brooklyn TKTS Booth in 1 MetroTech Center at Jay Street and Myrtle Avenue Promenade. Since TKTS first opened for business over 37 years ago on June 25, 1973, over 54 million tickets have been sold at discount prices to millions of New Yorkers and visitors who may not have been able to attend live performances without TKTS. Those admissions represent over $1.6 billion in revenue returned to thousands of productions.
THEATRE DEVELOPMENT FUND (TDF) has played a unique role in strengthening live theatre and dance in New York City for the past 42 years. This not-for-profit service organization’s programs have provided over 79 million people access to the theatre at discount prices (with theatre lovers who would normally not be able to attend live performance) and returned nearly 2 billion dollars in revenue to thousands of theatre, dance and music productions. Best known for its TKTS Discount Booths, TDF’s membership, voucher, access and education programs, as well as its Costume Collection, help to make the unique experience of theatre available to everyone. Recently, TDF published its first book, Outrageous Fortune: The Life and Times of the New American Play. To learn more about TDF, go to: www.tdf.org.
