Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Atlanta announced today that they will host an in-person lottery for seats in the pit section and front orchestra for $25 for every performance of RENT, the Pulitzer Prize, and Tony Award-winning musical. The $25 tickets are available for in-person purchases at the Fox Theatre, located at 660 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30308 on the day of each performance only, two and a half hours prior to the show, with the winners selected two hours prior to the show. The $25 tickets are available for cash only purchases and are limited to two tickets per person.
The tradition of the $25 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 uniquely discounted seats in each city the show will play.
In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love.
RENT will play at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre February 20 – 28. The performance schedule, which includes two additional dates, is as follows:
Tuesday-Thursday 7:30 p.m.
Friday 8 p.m.
Saturday 2 p.m., 8 p.m.
Sunday 1 p.m., 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday-Wednesday 7:30 p.m.
