Discounted front-row tickets sell fast
UA students and other Tucsonans lined up in front of Centennial Hall yesterday eager to pay the "Rent."
"Rent," the Broadway hit making its second tour through Tucson in three years, opened last night but prime seats were still available two hours before the curtain rose, thanks to a special ticket sale put on by the show's production company.
Sixty seats in Centennial Hall's orchestra pit - the first three rows from the stage - were offered for $20 each yesterday at 5:30 p.m. Within minutes, all of the tickets were sold.
Ann Charles, along with her children David and Rebekah and their friend Tarreyn VanSlyke, had been standing in line since 1 p.m. to secure the discounted tickets.
