About TodayTix

TodayTix is leading the mobile revolution for theatrical ticketing, an industry that has not modernized in decades. Riding the wave of tremendous growth in mobile sales, TodayTix is the only mobile-based platform for Broadway ticketing, a $1B industry in New York City alone.  Designed for the way modern users plan and manage their time, TodayTix is focused on last-minute sales, capitalizing on remaining ticket inventory to discount prices and fill seats. 

After launching just a few months ago in December, TodayTix now has over 100,000 users and has transacted millions of dollars in sales along with garnering major press attention, including Associated Press, Huffington Post, Entertainment Weekly, Variety, Crain’s, and more. TodayTix is growing rapidly. We are on track to launch in London by the end of the year, with additional cities to be rolled out next year. Our team is growing, too. Join TodayTix and grow with us!
