RENT 20th ANNIVERSARY TOUR
BEGINS NEXT WEEK!
FIRST TWO ROWS OF ORCHESTRA SEATS
AVAILABLE FOR $20 (plus $6 fees)
DAY OF PERFORMANCE ONLY
AT THE CIVIC CENTER MUSIC HALL BOX OFFICE
(Oklahoma City, OK) – OKC Broadway announced that seats in the first two rows of the orchestra section will be available for $20 (plus $6 fees) for every performance of RENT, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical. The $20 tickets are available for in-person purchases at the Civic Center Music Hall box office, located at 201 N. Walker Ave., on the day of each performance only, two hours prior to the show. The $20 tickets are available for cash only purchases and are limited to two tickets per person.
The tradition of the $20 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 orchestra seats for $20 in each city the show will play.
RENT 20th Anniversary Tour will play the Civic Center Music Hall for one week only, November 7 to the 12th. All other tickets are available now by visiting OKCBroadway.com, calling (405) 297-2264 Mon-Fri 10am-5pm, or visiting the Civic Center Box Office. Groups of ten (10) or more may be placed by calling (405) 297-1586.
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.
The show received its world premiere off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on February 13, 1996 to ecstatic reviews and transferred to Broadway on April 29, 1996. RENT is winner of the 1996 Tony Award for Best Musical as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It is one of only five musicals to win both awards.
Based on the original direction by Michael Greif (Tony and Drama Desk Nominations, RENT), Evan Ensign will restage this 20th anniversary tour. Marlies Yearby (Tony Nomination, RENT) will serve as choreographer.
The RENT 20th Anniversary Tour is produced by Work Light Productions, whose other touring productions include Cinderella, MAMMA MIA!, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, Vocalosity, and Crazy For You.
