Avenue Q Tickets

Apart from getting discounted tickets online, you can also get Broadway and Off-Broadway tickets for cheap via TKTS booths or Digital Lottery. You can also try your luck with RUSH or Standing Room Only (SRO) tickets, which are also sold at reduced rates!

Avenue Q TKTS

TKTS NYC Discount Booths offer a variety of Broadway and Off Broadway tickets at 20% to 50% off regular prices. Tickets can only be purchased in person - on the day of the performance for evening shows, or the day prior for matinee performances. Seats are assigned at the discretion of the TKTS booth attendant and may be partial view.

TKTS obtains its inventory directly from theaters, based upon how a particular show’s tickets are selling at full-price. When it comes to the Avenue Q show, tickets are frequently available at any of the four TKTS booths.

To help you plan for future shows, you can view this in-depth guide to the four TKTS booths.

Avenue Q Lottery

For those who’re feeling lucky, entering a lottery is a great way to get discounted Broadway tickets. A handful of theaters host live same-day ticket drawings a couple hours before performance time. These require your presence and a bit patience; but, to many, the reward is well worth it. Nowadays, quite a few digital lotteries are also available. You can simply enter the draw via your smartphone, making it much more convenient to participate. Currently, there is no lottery policy available for Avenue Q.

Avenue Q Rush Tickets

RUSH tickets are same-day tickets, usually sold at a highly discounted price. Broadway general RUSH tickets can be purchased by anyone, while student RUSH tickets are restricted for students only. All RUSH tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. They are sold in limited quantities, usually only for performances that do not sell out on their own at regular price. RUSH tickets are subject to any other constraints determined by the provider.

Currently, there is a General Rush policy in place for Avenue Q.

Q: Can I purchase Avenue Q tickets using the TKTS app, instead of waiting in line at the TKTS booths?
A: Unfortunately, no. The only way to purchase Avenue Q TKTS tickets is in person at one of the four booth locations.

Q: Is there any age limit/recommendation?
A: As Avenue Q deals with certain mature themes, parental discretion is advised.

Q: Can I take photographs of the show?
A: Absolutely no recordings of any kind are allowed in the theatre.

Q: What do I wear to the show?
A: There is no specific dress code required. Semi-formal or smart casual is recommended.

Q: Is there a possibility that I get a partial view seat when I purchase discounted Avenue Q tickets online?
A: Yes, this is possible. However, when you book with Headout your seat will not have a partial view. This is due to the specific seat allotment option we offer and none of the seats with partial views are displayed.
