TDF, a not-for-profit organization, was created with the conviction that the live theatrical arts afford a unique expression of the human condition that must be sustained and nurtured. TDF’s twofold mission is to identify and provide support, including financial assistance, to theatrical works of artistic merit and to encourage and enable diverse audiences to attend live theatre and dance in all their venues.


CUNY students, staff & faculty can now join the more than 125,000 theatre lovers who get the best ticket deals from TDF and become a TDF member for free (regularly $40)! TDF members get special access to deeply discounted tickets available online and in advance for hundreds of Broadway, Off Broadway and Off-Off Broadway theatre shows, dance performances and music concerts in NYC and beyond. Any member of the CUNY Arts community is automatically eligible for membership (choose the eligibility criteria that best fits: i.e., student, faculty, etc.)
