The Wait Is Over, The New TKTS Booth Opens Today @ 3pm

The Fab Marquee News Desk.

The New TKTS booth is slated to open today (Thursday, October 16th, 2008) at 3pm. The new TKTS booth is a state-of-the-art fiberglass shell encased by an all-glass structure, which sits under a glowing red glass staircase. The slip-resistant glass steps are lit from below with advanced LED technology, and utilize unique geothermal-based heating and cooling technology. From atop this amphitheatre-style staircase, 27 steps high, 16 feet above street level, visitors now have a unique vantage point to take in the excitement of Times Square as never before, making Duffy Square a new destination for New Yorkers and visitors alike.

he new booth will feature 12 selling windows, each equipped with the ability to accept credit cards for sale of same-day discount tickets to Broadway, Off Broadway, music and dance productions. There is a special "Play Only" window where there is rarely a wait for tickets to non-musical productions.

hours of operation for TKTS Times Square are: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 3pm to 8pm for evening performances, Tuesdays from 2pm to 8pm for evening performances; Wednesday and Saturday from 10am to 2pm for matinee performances; and Sunday from 11 to 3pm for matinee performances and 3pm to 7pm for evening performances.

This project took over two years in the making and near 19 million dollars.

Well worth it?
