Sistas 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!

Sistas - 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 Sistas are occasionally available.

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

Sistas - 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.

Currently, there is no Sistas lottery.

Sistas - Rush

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. RUSH tickets are subject to any other constraints determined by the provider.
