OffOff@$9 Info for Producers

TDF Can Help You Build Audiences for Off-Off Broadway
In order to cultivate a stronger connection between adventurous theatremakers and their equally adventurous patrons TDF created OffOff@$9, a program which helps producers and presenters build new audiences for Off-Off Broadway theatre, music and dance. The OffOff@$9 program offers $9 tickets to TDF’s 100,000 members, as well as a growing list of 15,000 Off-Off Broadway enthusiasts. For the ticket buyers, signing up for OffOff@$9 is free and open to anyone who would like to join. Patrons buy $9 tickets and we pay that directly to you, the producer. 

Who Can Participate

OffOff@$9 is open to any fully produced Off-Off Broadway theatre production, along with dance, music and festival events whose full-price ticket has a face value in the range of $15-$25. As a producer, you can submit theatre and dance productions online; add dates, times, and allocations and view sales 24/7. 

The OffOff@$9 Program is not intended for staged readings, comedy clubs nor shows that meet the guidelines for Off Broadway or Broadway productions.

How To Participate

  1. Download the Producer's Kit, which includes instructions.  
  2. Create an account at
  3. Build a show file providing venue details, show description, artwork, payee information, etc.
  4. Once approved you can add dates, times, and ticket allocations.


Some presenting theatres and most festivals already have an account to create and manage listings. Confirm with your box office before posting your offer through TDF's OffOff@$9 program. 
All venues with food and drink minimums or covers must waive those fees for OffOff@$9 patrons.  

Our History

In the first two years, TDF generated nearly 41,000 admissions for participating Off-Off Broadway companies. Last year, we sold as many tickets in a single season, more than doubling our impact.

OffOff@$9 was the recipient of the 
2012 Ellen Stewart Award by the Innovative Theatre Awards for demonstrating a significant contribution to the Off-Off Broadway community through service, support, and leadership.
