Rush Tickets Available for Rent Monday and Tuesday

10/11/2007 —

Seats in the front two rows of the orchestra, 32 seats, will be made available for $20 (cash only) for every performance of Rent, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony® Award-winning musical, at the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (Pullo Center) at Penn State York.  The $20 tickets go on sale at the Pullo Center box office on the day of the performance, 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,” 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 returns to the Pullo Center at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 15 and Tuesday, Oct. 16 at Penn State York, 1031 Edgecomb Avenue.   The $20 tickets are available at the Pullo Center box office only.  For general ticket information, call (717) 505-5900 or visit http://www.pullocenter.psu.edu/.
