Puffs Tickets

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

Puffs 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. Tickets for Puffs the Play are frequently available.

Puffs Lottery Tickets

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.

Currently, there is no Puffs lottery.

Puffs 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. There are sold in limited quantities, usually only for performances that to not sell out on their own at regular price.

Q. Is there a possibility that I will get partial view seating if I purchase discounted Puffs tickets?
A. When booking with Headout, you will get to select your specific seats, thus, ensuring you do not get stuck with partial view. However, if you opt to try and get rush tickets, your seats will be allocated at the discretion of the box office, which can potentially mean partial view seating or split seats.
