In addition to tickets, post-performance talks for attendees are scheduled where possible and TDF memberships are provided.

“Our cultural institutions, including the bright lights of Broadway, are one of the best parts of our great city and it’s important to make sure all New Yorkers can enjoy them, especially veterans,” said said New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson. “Veterans have served our country and I thank TDF for continuing to serve our veterans.”
