    The East Village will get its own TKTS-type booth offering discount tickets to downtown theater and other cultural events.

    With discount tickets all the rage these days, the downtown arts scene is getting in on the act with its own TKTS-style rush ticket booth that will open every Friday night for two hours.

    The Fab Fridays discount ticket booth will offer rush theater tickets for as little as $5, NewYorkology reports.

    The booth will open April 24 from 5 to 7 p.m. at 61 East 4th Street.

    Participating theaters tend to be the Off-Off-Broadway sort, featuring some experimental theater. Tickets will be available to venues such as La MaMa E.T.C., Millennium Film Workshop, New York Theatre Workshop, WOW Café Theatre, Teatro Circulo and Teatro IATI.

    "The East 4th Street Cultural District is the focal point of the vibrant artistic community in the East Village and the Lower East Side, and the opening of our Ticket Booth and Rush Ticket Service is just another reason for audiences to visit and enjoy our performances,” Tamara Greenfield, the executive director of the Fourth Arts Block (FAB) said in a statement announcing the ticket booth. “It’s a win-win situation - the artists get full houses, and the audience gets to see more of the work they love."
