TDF Services For Producers


TDF Subsidy Program

Help when it counts most! The TDF Subsidy Program awards a subsidy of up to $13 per ticket to Broadway productions of particular merit that, due to their content, may be slow to build an audience. TDF offers similar programs for Off Broadway shows with Equity contracts and for New York City dance performances.



Offering Tickets to TDF Members

Reach an audience of committed theatregoers. TDF has 90,000+ members who purchase hundreds of thousands of discounted tickets online and by mail every year. TDF Members are theatre lovers who show up early and often, and can be a crucial source of word-of-mouth. Tickets to any New York production—from the smallest showcase to the grandest Broadway show—can be offered through this service at any time during the run.



Offering Tickets Through Off-Off@$9

We realize that sometimes filling a theatrical venue can be a little challenging, especially when you’re producing new and exciting work off-Off Broadway. TDF’s off-Off@$9 program can help producers and presenters gain revenue while bringing new audiences to off-Off Broadway events by offering discounted tickets to TDF’s 90,000+ members. off-Off@$9 was specifically designed to encourage attendance at both AEA and non-AEA showcases as well as smaller dance venues.



Offering Tickets at TKTS Discount Booths

Same-day sales, uptown and down. Many producers utilize the TKTS Discount Booths as a direct marketing tool for surplus seats. In return for offering same-day discounts of between 20% and 50% off full-price tickets, they have access to a large and enthusiastic audience.




Services For Not-For-Profit Theatres

TAP Accessibility Grants

The TAP Plus Program, which is administered by TDF, provides grants of up to $5,000 to eligible organizations in New York State.
