Free Events, Free Things to Do in New York City!  Read More

Buying a ticket to a Broadway show is not the only way to be able to enjoy that increadibly rich theater scene of New York City.

It's a known fact that NYC theater tickets are rather expensive, but a significantly less know fact is that you can attend a NYC theater show that is totally free and open for general public. Or you can ontain coplimentary tickets for an off Brodway, off off Broadway and sometimes Broadway show (a play or a musical) free of charge or at a significant discount. But you do need to know how to go about it!

While many other sites give information about discount theater tickets in NYC, Club Free Time gives you all the info about those NYC theater performances that are totally free and open for general public. In addition, as a CFT member you have a chance to attend not-at-all-free off Broadway, off off Broadway and sometimes Broadway theater performances at no cost. if you are looking for cheap theater tickets in NYC - you should look no further: we are able to obtain free tickets for our members when a show has some unsold seats and producers would like to create that magical 'full house' feel. As an article in The New York Times said: New York is abuzz with so much culture that they're giving it away.

Our members attend off-Broadway, off-off-Broadway and sometimes Broadway shows, opera, classical music and jazz concerts, dance performances, children shows, comedy clubs, cabaret, etc. using complimentary tickets which they can reserve once they login to www.clubfreetime.com.

There are 41 Broadway theatres, approximately 85 Off-Broadway theatres, and about 120 off off Broadway theaters in NYC. These categories are not about the quality of productions or the talent involved, it's all about the number of seats in the venue: Broadway theaters have over 500 seats, off-Broadway theaters have  between 100 and 499 and the bvenues with fewer than 100 seats are referred to as Off Off Broadway.

At the beginning of the 20th century many theatres were located on Broadway and that's when the 'Broadway theater' term came to life. Only three 'Broadway' theatres are located on Broadway nowadays: the Winter Garden, the Marquis, and the Broadway Theatre. All other Broadway theaters are located in the theater district in the blocks east and west of Broadway around Times Square. The Theater District lies between 42nd and 53rd streets. 

In the 1890s this section of Broadway was one of the first part of town to be lit with electric lights, which led to the New York Telegram headline 'Found on the Great White Way' and that's how the nickname 'the Great White Way' came to life. Most visitors never venture off the Great White Way. Approximately 14 million people a year attending Broadway shows.

Meanwhile, although Eugene O'Neill famously said in 1931: ''One of the things I regret, is the passing of the experimental group theater,'' off Broadway and off off Broadway theaters, being significantly less commercial then Broadway, or, in many cases, not commercial at all, offer a great variety of extremelly interesting and exciting experimental and not-so-experimental works. If you want to see real quality theater - give off Broadway and off off Broadway theater a try.

Off Broadway theaters have nurtured Pulitzer Prize-winning plays and playwrights and attracted prominent actors and actresses. Musicals such as ''A Chorus Line'' and ''Ain't Misbehavin' '' moved to Broadway from off Broadway. You may as well see a Broadway show at an Off Broadway theater as producers can continue running their shows with considerably reduced weekly costs by going from Broadway to Off-Broadway, as actor salaries and advertising costs are much less for off Broadway theaters. (We put lots of efforts in obtaining complimentary tickets for off Broadway shows for our members). One of the most famous off Broadway theaters is the Public Theater

The world of Off Off Broadway theaters is one of most interesting and unknown parts of New York City's theatrical life. It gives you the real sence of belonging as being so close to the stage allows you to see every nuance of what's happening there. That's where young, exciting playwrights are discovered. That's where you can see talented, unknown actors who may become the big stars of tomorrow at the tiny fraction of a Broadway ticket price.

Join Club Free Time and enjoy free theater performances or get free tickets to the shows (off Broadway, off off Broadway and sometimes even Broadway) which are not free for general public, but are free for Club Free Time members! Club Free Time is a NYC staple for finding amazing things to do for free. Some amazing deals are available in advance, but in some cases you will be able to get those last minute theater tickets.

Play | Pen/Man/Ship: Broadway Actors in a Period Drama (virtual)


1896. When Ruby, a young Black woman fleeing the American South, boards a ship bound for Liberia, she finds herself at odds with her companion's domineering, God-fearing father and his mysterious expedition. Unwilling to sit passively below deck, she befriends the crew, becoming entangled in a mutinous uprising that threatens them all. Performed live with breakthrough technology and expansive visuals that put the audience aboard the troubled vessel, pen/man/ship is a heart-pounding story of truth-seeking at all cost and a powerful reminder of the dangerous limits of self-righteousness. Written by Christina Anderson (Playwrights Horizons, The Public Theatre, Yale Repertory Theatre) Directed by Lucie Tiberghien The cast features Lucille Lortel Award winner Crystal Lucas-Perry (A Bright Room Called Day at the Public Theater), Kevin Mambo ("Marvel's Luke Cage" on Netflix, Fela in Broadway's Fela!), Jared McNeill (HBO's "We Are Who We Are," Battlefield at BAM) and Postell Pringle (Broadway's A Free Man of Color, FX's "Rescue Me").

Our state is wrought with disease, injustice, and inequity. The justice system is flawed and ineffective, so many citizens do not take it seriously.

The imprisoned man calls for his sister to appeal to the deputy and save his life. How can she appeal to this deputy to save her brother? How will the deputy assert his new temporary powers in response to her? Presented by New School MFA Shakespeare Studio.

Play | Women Without Men: Drama Laced with Humor (virtual, streaming for 24 hours)


Women Without Men is a workplace drama laced with biting humor, set in the teacher's lounge of a private girls' boarding school in Ireland in the 1930s. The play explores the clash of conflicting natures and petty competitions that erupt amongst the school's cloistered teaching staff. Playwright Hazel Ellis began her theatrical career in the 1930s as a member of the acting ensemble of the Gate Theatre in Dublin. She went on to write two plays for the company, including Women Without Men which was produced at the Gate in 1938. Despite acclaim, the play was never published or revived -- until the Mint Theater produced the play's belated American premiere to much acclaim in 2016 at New York City Center Stage II. This is an archival recording. Streaming is available until Apr 18th.

Play | Yours Unfaithfully: 'un-romantic comedy' (virtual, streaming for 24 hours)


An "un-romantic comedy" about the price of free love, Yours Unfaithfully is an insightful, intelligent and exceptionally intimate peek behind the closed doors of an open marriage. Stephen and Anne, blissfully happy for eight years, are committed to living up to their ideals. When Stephen, a writer who isn't writing, begins to sink into a funk of unproductive moodiness, Anne encourages him to seek out a fresh spark. Can their marriage survive uncompromising generosity, sacrifice and love? More than the story of an unconventional couple, the play is about what happens when our ideals clash with our emotions. Written by Miles Malleson Directed by Jonathan Bank The event is streaming until May 16th.

Performance | (IN-PERSON, outdoors) Cabaret with Satire, Bitter Humor, and Hope


Honoring the Holocaust Remembrance Day, Cabaret in Captivity includes songs and sketches written in Terezin/Theresienstad. Terezin was located an hour away from Prague, and during World War II it served as both an internment camp and a way station for the concentration camps during the Holocaust. Full of satire, bitter humor, and hope, these pieces demonstrate how art became a vital survival technique for the inmates. Most of these pieces were recently recovered through the efforts of scholar Lisa Peschel, who also translated the majority of the work. Bring your own seating; wear a mask. All seating groups will be separated by six feet.

Play | Yours Unfaithfully: 'un-romantic comedy' (virtual, streaming for 24 hours)


An "un-romantic comedy" about the price of free love, Yours Unfaithfully is an insightful, intelligent and exceptionally intimate peek behind the closed doors of an open marriage. Stephen and Anne, blissfully happy for eight years, are committed to living up to their ideals. When Stephen, a writer who isn't writing, begins to sink into a funk of unproductive moodiness, Anne encourages him to seek out a fresh spark. Can their marriage survive uncompromising generosity, sacrifice and love? More than the story of an unconventional couple, the play is about what happens when our ideals clash with our emotions. Written by Miles Malleson Directed by Jonathan Bank The event is streaming until May 16th.

Staged Reading | John Milton's Paradise Lost: Eve and Adam, Adaptation of the Epic Poem (virtual)


With its exquisite language and Shakespearean scale, John Milton's epic poem explores the fundamental questions of the human experience: What is evil? If God is all-powerful, why did he allow evil to exist? Do humans have free will? Is our life predestined? Dubbed "an Immorality play" by adaptor and director Michael Barakiva, this presentation will be presented in two parts: "The Fall of Lucifer" (April 12) and "Eve and Adam" (April 26). Eve and Adam recording will be available for streaming until Apr 30th.
