BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — There are 525,600 reasons to love this musical deal.

Shea's Performing Arts Center in Buffalo announced on Tuesday that 30 seats in the first rows of the orchestra section will be available for $20 for each performance of RENT when the 20th Anniversary Tour comes to the Queen City next week.

The $20 tickets are available for in-person, cash only purchases at the Shea's Buffalo Theatre Box Office on Main Street, on the day of each performance only, two hours before the show. The $20 tickets are limited to two per person.

According to Shea's, this ticket tradition started in 1996 in New York City when the show moved to Broadway after a sold-out run in a small downtown theatre. The producers of the show are committed to continued this tradition.

The Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical takes the stage at Shea's Buffalo Theatre on March 26 through the 31st.

For general ticket information, call the Shea’s Box Office at 847-0850 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday; and through curtain time(s) on performance days.
