T-minus Half An Hour Until The TIC Opens

Written by

This lobby is about to get really crowded

Every semester, theater nerds and musicians alike count down to one fateful hour: 1 pm on the first Friday of classes, when the Columbia student Ticket and Information Center (affectionately abbreviated “the TIC”) opens its doors. This office sells discounted tickets to a vast number of arts performances in NYC throughout the semester; although all of the events have been listed on the TIC website for several weeks now, all of the most desirable tickets don’t go on sale until 1 pm today.

A line is probably already forming outside the office, in the Lerner lobby just inside the campus entrance. You could get in it now and have a decent chance of securing tickets for the show you want. Or you could take advantage of the TIC’s site: load all of the events you want now, refresh as soon as it hits 1 pm, and fill in your credit card information as fast as you can.

Some of the most notable performances the TIC offers this semester include Dear Evan Hansen (on Wednesday 9/27, Thursday 10/19, Tuesday 11/14, and Thursday 11/16) Come From Away (on Wednesday 10/4 and Wednesday 11/8 ), Kinky Boots (on Tuesday 10/24), the NY Philharmonic’s performances of Bernstein & Rhapsody in Blue (Thursday 11/2) and Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony (Wednesday 12/6), and Swan Lake by the NYC Ballet (Friday 9/29).
