Boston Seat Fillers Have Fun Things to Do!

When shows and events in the greater Boston area (theatre, comedy, sport, music, etc.) have open seats or activities that aren't sold out, local seat fillers are privately invited.

OTL Boston Seat Fillers are on-call, super-secret free ticket VIPs. Shhh... don't tell anyone!

otl boston ON-CALL seat filler Memberships

Boston is an "On-Call" Seat Filler location. There are fewer local opportunities compared to "Preferred" locations, so dues are much (much!) lower. But, even after Boston upgrades to preferred status (after the membership grows and more shows and events are offered), your lower on-call dues will lock in for at least a year.

Boston Seat Fillers

OTL introduces Boston and CT area seat fillers to all kinds of fun shows, events, and opportunities. Seat Fillers get to treat guests and get out of the house more without the worry of individual ticket prices. The free tickets are great. But, it's also just fun to see what pops up!

Local Event Promoters

Boston area event promoters and marketing specialists have a free and private way to fill seats or attract new patrons. Plays and musicals reign supreme. However, OTL isn't limited to theatre. Comedy, music, virtual events, fairs and festivals, conferences, movies, escape rooms, golf, classes, anything goes!

How OTL Works

Pick a 2 or 4-seat plan

Register, setting up a username and password for the private VIP-only area

When a show pops up that you want to attend, make a reservation in the private VIP area

Pick up your complimentary tickets at the Box Office right before the show

You and your guest(s) are seated together

Repeat for other shows you want to attend (but please understand that, as a seat fillers club, events won't always be available)

Thanks for having such a great service!  I have experienced so many cool events and none of which I would have thought to go to without my membership.  You have successfully removed me from my seat at home and placed me in a considerably more entertaining seat!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be a seat filler in Boston?

You no longer have to be in Los Angeles or New York City to be a seat filler, as OTL Seat Fillers has evolved the concept for the Boston and Connecticut areas and other locations across the US and in London. Becoming a local seat filler is as easy as signing up on

What's the difference between an awards-show seat filler and a Boston seat filler?

Seat fillers for award shows (Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, and BAFTAs) are there to do a job, albeit a glamorous one! They temporarily fill in empty seats for celebrities. OTL Seat Fillers might not be rubbing elbows with celebs, but they're comp ticket VIPs. They receive free pairs of tickets by private invitation from Boston area venues. And they're treated just like every other audience member.

What types of shows do Boston seat fillers attend?

Plays and musicals are some of the most popular events, but there are plenty more. In addition to plays, musicals, comedy shows, and music events, local seat fillers have attended sporting events, classes, wine tastings, escape rooms, movies and film screenings, book signings, lectures, and more.

How much do seat fillers in Boston pay for tickets?

OTL seat fillers pay ZERO for tickets. They pay super affordable monthly or quarterly club dues averaging $5 per month, covering up to four complimentary tickets to anything they opt to attend.

What are the benefits of Boston seat-filling?

Boston seat fillers belong to the most entertaining club in New England. Not only do they receive complimentary tickets to all kinds of things to do in their hometown, but they get to treat their family and friends, too, through two or four-seat seat-filling plans. While the free admission is the biggest benefit, VIP Squad members love being introduced to new shows and events and the surprise of seeing what pops up out of the blue.

Why are Boston seat fillers offered free admission to shows, events, and activities.?

Local seat-filling is an effective event partnership marketing tool for event promoters, managers, marketers, and box office managers. Teaming up with OTL Seat Fillers is a free, private, and easy way to fill seats. But seat fillers do more than just fill those seats. They also buy food, beverages, and merchandise, bring guests above and beyond their seat-filling privileges, and tend to return to venues they love (even without comp tickets!). Additionally, inviting Boston seat fillers is a great way to build a marketing list for future events.

How do Boston promoters and marketers invite seat fillers?

It only takes about five minutes to get the ball rolling with OTL Seat Fillers and it's partnership marketing at its best! There's a dedicated event promoters page with an online event submission form on After a new partner submits the form, OTL follows up to verify the info and fill in the blanks. The show is then posted in the private VIPs-only area so seat fillers can make reservations. No tickets or money are ever exchanged, as OTL compiles a reservation list, and seat fillers check in at the venue right before the show.
