Waitress Broadway 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!

Waitress on 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. “Waitress” TKTS tickets are available frequently. For additional information on how TKTS works, see this in-depth guide to the four TKTS booths.

Waitress 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 of patience; but, to many, the reward is well worth it.

Currently, there are no “Waitress” lottery tickets available.

Waitress 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.

RUSH tickets for “Waitress” are sold daily when the box office opens. Timings are 10 AM Monday to Saturday and 12 PM on Sunday. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to availability. Tickets are $40 with a limit of two per person; a valid photo ID is required for pick up. Payment can be made via cash or credit card.

Waitress Standing Room Tickets

Standing Room tickets for “Waitress” will be sold on the day of the show, only after it has completely sold out. Patrons can line up outside the theater on performance days, when the box office opens. Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, as they become available throughout the day. Tickets are priced at $32, with a limit of two per person. Payment can be made via cash or credit card.
