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. NYC gives you many options.

75 min. Writer, Director: Callie Nestleroth. Performer: Sara Page. Meet with Cathy Earnshaw in her world from Emily Brontë’s classic tale Wuthering Heights, and be taken by her on a journey that goes beyond the confines of her book.

Staged Reading | Shakespeare's The Tragedy Of Hamlet


The Tragedy of Hamlet, often shortened to Hamlet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare sometime between 1599 and 1602. Set in Denmark, the play depicts Prince Hamlet and his revenge against his uncle, Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father in order to seize his throne and marry Hamlet's mother.  Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play and is considered among the most powerful and influential works of world literature, with a story capable of "seemingly endless retelling and adaptation by others".

Performance | Passages | Pasajes: A Site-Specific Sonic Performance


Passages | Pasajes is a site-specific sonic performance that utilizes the lawn will occur the afternoon of Saturday, September 21, 2019, close to the autumnal equinox.  The work will manifest as 16 performers, mainly from the Uptown community, moving through the park space. The performers will expand and contract together as they pass melodies, passages of text, and the names of loved ones between each other through the park. The work will be in four 20-minute iterations with breaks in between. The audience will consist of both those coming directly to see the performance as well as users of the public park space.  The audience will be situated within the performers; they will be immersed in the performing elements as they sit or stand on the lawn in the park. The audience will be able to move about freely, to experience the work as they want, with the ability to come and go. The work will be presented in four distinct iterations to allow for the audience to continue to listen to the work or to allow new audience members to arrive as well as giving all performers the opportunity to be the leaders of a performance. The performers themselves will be helping in the creation of the work. Their personal histories will form parts of the materials utilized in the performance. This collaboration will foster a democratizing effect and ideally create a non-hierarchical structure to the work. The performance will be bilingual, in Spanish and English, to better display the polyglot nature of the community.

Staged Reading | Shakespeare's Loves Labours Lost


Instant Shakespeare company performs a staged reading of Love's Labour's Lost by Shakespeare.  Love's Labour's Lost is one of William Shakespeare's early comedies, believed to have been written in the mid-1590s for a performance at the Inns of Court before Queen Elizabeth I. It follows the King of Navarre and his three companions as they attempt to swear off the company of women for three years in order to focus on study and fasting. Their subsequent infatuation with the Princess of France and her ladies makes them forsworn. In an untraditional ending for a comedy, the play closes with the death of the Princess's father, and all weddings are delayed for a year. The play draws on themes of masculine love and desire, reckoning and rationalisation, and reality versus fantasy. The Instant Shakespeare readings are set up to make Shakespeare accessible. The readings are usually without rehearsal, but they are on-your-feet Instant staged readings where the actors move around as much as they feel comfortable.
