Off-Off Broadway for Producers

Pack your house. Adventurous theatregoers are waiting.
Connecting adventurous theatre-makers and their equally adventurous patrons, the Off-Off Broadway Explorers program builds new audiences for theatre, music and dance. Offer your best discount to TDF’s 110,000 members and growing list of 16,000 Off-Off Broadway enthusiasts. For the ticket buyer, signing up is free and open to anyone. Patrons buy $9 tickets and we pay that directly to you, the producer. 

Who Can Participate

Our Off-Off Broadway Explorers program is open to any fully produced Off-Off Broadway production, including theatre, dance, music and festival events, both non-union and AEA showcase code. As a producer, you can submit your productions online; add dates, times, and allocations and view sales 24/7. 

This program is not intended for staged readings, comedy clubs nor shows that meet the guidelines for Off Broadway or Broadway productions.

All venues with food and drink minimums or covers must waive those fees for our patrons.
