TDF Services for Producers



Offering Tickets to TDF Members

Reach an audience of committed theatregoers. TDF has 110,000+ members who purchase hundreds of thousands of discounted tickets every year. TDF members are theatre lovers who take chances on new productions and can be a crucial source of word-of-mouth buzz. Tickets to most New York theatre, dance and music productions can be offered through this service at any time during the run of the show.




Offering Tickets at TKTS Discount Booths

Many Broadway and Off Broadway producers utilize the TKTS Discount Booths to offer surplus seats to a large and enthusiastic audience with discounts between 20% and 50% off the full-price of tickets. These great discounts are made available for same-day evening performances and in some cases, next-day matinees. TDF has four TKTS Discount Booth locations: Times Square, Lincoln Center, South Street Seaport and Downtown Brooklyn. 




Offering Tickets To Off-Off Broadway Productions

We realize that sometimes filling a theatrical venue can be challenging, especially when you’re producing new and exciting work Off-Off Broadway. TDF can help producers and presenters gain revenue while bringing in new audiences by offering discounted tickets to TDF’s 110,000+ members and a growing list of 16,000 Off-Off Broadway enthusiasts. The Off-Off Broadway Explorers Program was specifically designed to encourage attendance at both AEA and non-AEA showcases as well as smaller dance venues.




TDF Subsidy Program

Help when it counts most! The TDF Subsidy Program awards a subsidy of up to $12 per ticket to new Broadway productions of artistic merit that may be slow to attract an audience during the first eight weeks of the run. TDF offers similar programs for Off Broadway shows with full Equity contracts and for New York City dance performances.


 

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.
