DETROIT—Broadway In Detroit has announced that seats in the first two rows of the main floor will be available for $20 for every performance of Rent, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical playing at the Fisher Theatre, March 21 – 26, 2017.

Two and one-half hours prior to each performance, people who present themselves at the Fisher Theatre will have their names placed in a lottery drum; thirty minutes later, names will be drawn for a limited number of main floor seats at $20 each, cash only.  This lottery is available only in-person at the Fisher Theatre, with a limit of two tickets per person.  Lottery participants must have a valid photo ID when submitting their entry form and, if chosen, when purchasing tickets.

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 main floor seats for $20 in each city the show will play.

RENT 20th Anniversary Tour will appear March 21 – 26, 2017 at the Fisher Theatre, located at 3011 West Grand Blvd., in Detroit.  Performance dates and times are

  • Tuesday through Saturday evening performances at 8:00 p.m.
  • Sunday evening performance at 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday & Sunday matinee at 2:00 p.m.
  • Special open caption performance on Thursday, March 23 at 8:00 p.m.

Regular priced tickets start at $39 (includes facility and parking fees) and are on sale at all Ticketmaster locations, by phone at 1-800-982-2787, and online at www.broadwayindetroit.com or www.ticketmaster.com.
