Seat locations are distributed randomly upon redemption; not based on a person’s redemption time at the Delacorte Box Office. All vouchers must be exchanged for tickets at the Delacorte Theater Box Office in Central Park between 5:30pm and 7:30pm. Vouchers are only valid until 7:30pm for performances on the day they are issued.
Each person (age 5+) may receive up to two (2) tickets, while supplies last.
ADA accessibility seating is limited. For assistance in acquiring accessible seating during our borough distributions please speak to a member of The Public Theater staff.
Standby Line: If you do not receive tickets at the borough location, you may join the standby line in Central Park. The Public Theater staff will begin to monitor the line starting at 6:00pm. Free standby tickets will be distributed if and when they become available, two (2) per person.
A Public Theater Patron ID is required to receive a free ticket.
