AVAILABLE FOR $20 DAY OF PERFORMANCE ONLY AT PROCTORS BOX OFFICE
Schenectady, NY – Seats in the orchestra pitt will be made available for $20 for every performance of “RENT: The Broadway Tour", the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical, at Proctors. The $20 tickets go on sale at Proctors box office, on the day of performance only, two hours prior to the show and are available to anyone, cash only, with a limit of two tickets per person.
“In keeping with the spirit of the show and the vision of Jonathan Larson, the show’s creator, we are happy to be able to offer prime seats to people who otherwise would not be able to purchase them,” said original “RENT” producer Kevin McCollum. “Jonathan was himself a struggling artist and his dream was to create a universal piece of musical theatre that’s available to everyone.”
The tradition of the $20 tickets was started in New York when the show moved to Broadway after a sold-out run in a small downtown theatre. Since that time people have lined up as early as the night before to guarantee their purchase of the $20 tickets. The producers of the show are committed to continuing the tradition of offering orchestra seats for $20 in each city the show will play.
“RENT: The Broadway Tour” makes its Capital Region return to Proctors July 28 – August 2. The $20 tickets are available at Proctors box office, 432 State St., Schenectady, NY, only.
For general ticket information, call Proctors Box Office, (518)-346-6204 or visit proctors.org.
This performance is part of the Keeler Broadway on Tour Series, and sub-sponsored by The Muddy Cup.
Significant discounts on tickets are available for groups of 20 or more. A listing of shows and pricing may be found on proctors.org/group_sales or by contacting Proctors Group Sales at 518-382-3884 ext. 139.
This performance is sponsored, in part, by The New York State Council on The Arts, a state agency.
