Great idea that is being pioneered in New York, love this if this came to London.

Please feel free to list other great apps.


Ever wondered what shows were available at the TKTS booth in Duffy Square, but didn't want to make the trek through the crowds in Times Square? A new iPhone application titled "At the Booth!" now gives theatregoers access to that information and more.

Producer and blogger Ken Davenport, who created Off-Broadway's Altar Boyz and produced the Broadway productions of Blithe Spirit and Oleanna, solicited his "Producer's Perspective" blog readers to suggest ideas for a theatre-related iPhone app of their dreams.
Davenport and his staff incorporated reader ideas to create the app, which is currently available on iTunes for $.99, that provides a list of the Broadway and Off-Broadway shows currently available at TKTS and the percentage that the tickets are discounted.

Updated hourly, "At the Booth" not only shows the discount percentage, but also how much the cost is in U.S. dollars and provides ticket buyers with comparisons to the full-price tickets and other available discounts.

A "line indicator" also shows how long the line is, so you can gauge whether or not you want to brave the elements for half-priced tickets. The app also shows users at what time the information has been updated.

"At the Booth" provides maps, synopsis, performance schedule, running time, cast and creative team information, photos, videos, reviews, recent headlines and links to the show's official website. A list of all current Broadway and Off-Broadway productions are also listed.

Currently, "At the Booth!" only provides information on the Duffy Square location, within the heart of the theatre district. The Theatre Development Fund runs the TKTS booth, which also has kiosks in South Street Seaport and Downtown Brooklyn.
