UPDATES: Rent Rush Tix; and "Occupant" cancellation
RUSH TIX FOR RENT
At Shea’s Performing Arts Center, 30 seats in the first rows of the orchestra section will be available for $20 for every performance of RENT, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical that opens tonight, Tuesday, March 26, 2019.
The $20 LOTTERY tickets are available in-person, cash only purchases at the Shea’s Buffalo Theatre Box Office, located at 650 Main St., on the day of each performance. Arrive 2 ½ hours prior to the performance time to enter the random lottery. Tickets are limited to two tickets per person.
The tradition of these tickets began in 1996 in New York when the show moved to Broadway after a sold-out run in a small downtown theatre. The producers of the show are committed to continuing the tradition of offering these orchestra seats in each city the show will play.
RENT performs at Shea’s Buffalo Theatre from March 26 to 31.
For general ticket information, call the Shea’s Box Office at 716-847-0850 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday; and through curtain time(s) on performance days.
OCCUPANT CANCELLED AT BURCHFIELD
Edward Albee’s play Occupant, about artist Louise Nevelson, was scheduled to play this weekend at the Burchfield-Penney Art Gallery in the Tower Auditorium. Sadly, “Suitcase Productions,” has cancelled, as Christina Rausa, who was to play Nevelson, has the flu! They hope to reschedule.
