Theatre box office or TKTS?

Would it be quicker/more convenient to purchase tickets (most likely for Annie) at the Duffy Square TKTS booth or to purchase tickets at the Palace Theatre box office using a discount from Playbill Club/Broadway Box?

We saw two plays using Broadway Box discounts. We were able to pick our own seats--which were wonderful at both plays. We went to the theaters as soon as the box office opened--no waiting at all.

Another benefit of using bwaybox and going direct to the theater is you don't have to wait til the day of performance. In fact, it's better imo if you don't. Get the tickets when you arrive in NYC. ;)

Chelsea, you asked a straightforward question and got some answers. If you're happy, great. Otherwise, it's important to make clear what your (or someone else's) priorities are:


Certainty of price

Advance Knowledge of daily schedule

Physical Possession of Tickets

Particular show or shows

Alternate list of shows in your pocket

Hopes for a low-probability desire

Convenient access to honest internet sources

Time on lines after arrival in the city

Requirement to appear at a certain time in a certain place

Internet access problems from foreign countries

English language facility of some ticket holders

Family taste and taboos

Musical styles requirements
