Hello, Dolly! Tickets

Apart from getting discounted tickets online, you can also get 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!

Hello Dolly Tickets - 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. Since “Hello, Dolly!” is one of the most popular musicals on Broadway, there is little to no chance that these tickets will ever be 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.

Hello Dolly Tickets - Lottery

For those willing to try their luck, entering a lottery can be a great way to score discount 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, “Hello, Dolly!” lottery tickets are not available.
