HONOLULU (KHON2) — Broadway in Hawaii announced today that seats in the first rows of the orchestra section will be available for $24.50 for every performance of RENT, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical. It is a RENT tradition to offer discounted rush seating in the first few rows of the orchestra section. This tradition began in 1996 in New York when the show moved to Broadway after a sold-out run in a small downtown theatre. The 20th Anniversary Tour continues the tradition of offering these orchestra seats in every city.
The lottery tickets are available for in-person purchases at the Blaisdell Box Office located at 777 Ward Avenue on the day of each performance only, two and a half hours prior to the show. The $24.50 tickets are limited to two tickets per person.
There is a special discounted rate for students for the matinee performance on Friday, December 27th. Tickets are $25 plus fees for any open seat and only while supplies last. This offer is available at all points of sale with a student ID. If purchased online, tickets have to be picked up with the student ID.

|Tuesday, December 24||2:00pm|
|Thursday, December 26||7:30pm|
|Friday, December 27||2:00pm|
