Front Row $20 Tickets Offered For RENT At ASU Gammage 3/17-2
Seats in the front two rows of the orchestra will be made available for $20 for every performance of RENT, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony® Award-winning musical, at ASU Gammage, March 17-22. The $20 tickets go on sale at the ASU Gammage 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. No parking will be available in the ASU Gammage parking lot.
"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," explained 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 makes its Tempe return at ASU Gammage, for eight performances with Adam Pascal, Anthony Rapp and Gwen Stewart who will reprise the roles they originated on Broadway in RENT.
Tickets are on sale at ASU Gammage and Ticketmaster. 1.800.982.ARTS (2787) or asugammage.com. RENT is a special ticket offering of M&I Bank Broadway Across America - Arizona series and is presented by ASU Gammage and Broadway Across America.
