RENT 20TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR ANNOUNCES LOTTERY FOR $25 TICKETS IN THE FIRST TWO ROWS
Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical returns to Minneapolis June 6-11
MINNEAPOLIS—Hennepin Theatre Trust today announced that a day-of-performance lottery for $25 seats in the first two rows of the orchestra section will be held for every performance of RENT, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical, which is returning to Minneapolis as part of the 2016-2017 Bank of America Broadway on Hennepin Season June 6-11 at the historic Orpheum Theatre.
The lottery for $25 tickets will be held in-person at the Orpheum Theatre Box Office (910 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis), on the day of each performance, two hours prior to the show and is limited to two tickets per person, cash only. Lottery participants must present a valid photo ID when submitting their entry form and, if chosen, when purchasing tickets.
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.
Tickets for the general public are on sale on now at the State Theatre Box Office (805 Hennepin Ave. Minneapolis), by calling (800) 982-2787 or by clicking to HennepinTheatreTrust.org.
