How to get $25 RENT tickets in the 2nd row

April 16, 2018


The Saenger Theatre announced today that seats in the first two rows of the orchestra section will be available for $25 for every performance of RENT, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical. The $25 tickets are available for in-person purchases at the Saenger Theatre Box Office, located at 1111 Canal St., New Orleans, Louisiana, 70116, on the day of each performance only, two hours prior to the show.  The $25 tickets are available for cash only purchases and are limited to two tickets per person.  There are 20 seats available at this price per performance.


The tradition of the $25 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 $25 in each city the show visits.


RENT will play eight performances April 17-22, 2018, at the Saenger Theatre. Presented by the New Orleans Theatre Association, RENT is part of the East Jefferson General Hospital Broadway in New Orleans 2017-2018 season.
