NEW YORK — Times Square's iconic TKTS booth is celebrating its 40th birthday by introducing a new way for theater lovers to avoid lines.
The Theatre Development Fund, the nonprofit that runs the booth selling discount Broadway and off-Broadway tickets, announced Wednesday a Fast Pass program that allows anyone who has bought a ticket from the booth to return within seven days and skip the wait when they buy another ticket.
Interested patrons must bring a ticket stub that proves they've bought a TKTS ticket within seven days and they'll be ushered through to the booth's first window, which is reserved for full-price tickets to future performances and is usually not as busy as the other windows handling discounted tickets.
