Beyond Broadway and Off Broadway theatres and midtown concert halls is a vast and intriguing alternative—theatre, dance and music performed on small stages and nontraditional spaces all over the city. You're not a real New York theatregoer till you've been Off-Off Broadway!

Off-Off Broadway is where many of New York's most innovative playwrights, composers, choreographers and performers try their boldest experiments and produce their most groundbreaking work. Only the curious and adventurous theatregoers need apply-and luckily, there are plenty of them out there to keep the scene buzzing with activity. To help build a stronger link between those inspired theatre makers and their equally daring patrons; TDF developed its Off-Off @$9 Program.

Both TDF members and non-members may purchase tickets to a large selection of Off-Off Broadway productions online using our Off-Off@$9 service.

If you ARE a TDF member...
Just log in your usual way. While viewing the show listings by category click the Off-Off@$9 tab. Purchase tickets at $9 each and get guaranteed admission to the performance without waiting.

If you ARE NOT a TDF member...

  1. Sign up for FREE using the link to the right that says "Non-TDF Member SIGN UP."
  2. After you've submitted your e-mail address you will be sent an email verification at which time you can create a password.
  3. For future visits to purchase tickets, just go to the TDF homepage ( and, at the top right, sign in using your email address and password where it says "TDF Login".

Because of the success of this program, TDF was awarded the 2012 Ellen Stewart Award by the New York Innovative Theatre Awards for demonstrating a significant contribution to the Off-Off Broadway community through service, support and leadership. TDF may be best known for its TKTS Booths, which offer discount tickets to Broadway and Off Broadway shows, but the Off-Off @$9 Program helps you be part of the Off-Off Broadway world of theatre, dance, performance art and music for less than the price of seeing a movie!
