Which day for Broadway matinee?

On which days (Sat/Sun/Wed?) are matinees offered on Broadway? And where do you go for the daily half price tickets? Assuming a matinee is at 3m, at what time would the tix be available? Thanks for any leads!

Matinees are performed on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.....2 p.m. for the first two and 3 p.m. for Sunday.
TKTS opens at 10 a.m. in Times Square. There is also a TKTS booth downtown in Battery Park, where you can get Wednesday matinee tickets on Tuesday. And, I think, you can get Saturday matinee tickets on Friday....but I'm not sure about that.

This has been changing somewhat lately - I understand that Lion King now has both a 1pm matinee and a 6pm show on Suns. so I woud check out the shows you are interested in for details.

Based on the original poster's comments, I assumed that he/she was only interested in shows having discounted tickets available. All those shows have 3 p.m. matinees on Sundays. Tickets for The Lion King definitely will NOT be available anywhere.

The website tdf.org will provide all the info you request PLUS give you an idea of the recent ticket availability.

The specific URL for times etc. is

http://tdf.org/tkts/index.html#

Be aware you must have cash for the tkts booth. They don't accept credit cards.

Are you aware you can get discount tickets in advance for certain shows using websites like playbill.com, theatermania.com....?

No, McLaurie, I didn't know that. I'll check both websites you mentioned. Thank you, too, Howard and NYT, for the detailed info. Very much appreciated!
