For everyone that loves a great Broadway show, but cannot hop on jet to New York City for the weekend (i.e. most of us in the Triangle area), now there is a new alternative: the Durham Performing Arts Center. The new venue is located in the historic American Tobacco District of downtown Durham and is set to finish construction in late 2008. The facility will be largest performing arts center of its kind between Atlanta and the megalopolis and promises the best direct-from-New York Broadway hit shows each and every season.
The Durham Performing Arts Center is currently offering an early bird special for anyone who would like to guarantee season tickets to the theater’s inaugural shows in late 2008 and early 2009. The special is only available until July 1 and lends customers the opportunity to see all of the season’s hot Broadway shows at a highly discounted rate with additional perks such as discounted parking, home ticket delivery and ticket exchange. For a $180 one can attend all of the center’s shows including Rent, Legally Blonde, Fiddler on the Roof and The Color Purple, in addition to garnering a front-of-the-line spot to reserve tickets to the highly-acclaimed show Wicked, in the 2009-2010 season. The deal guarantees tickets to the primetime shows including Friday and Saturday evening and Saturday and Sunday matinee and places viewers on the well-coveted front balcony area of the theater as well. Considering no seat in the theater is more than 135 feet away, there will not be a bad seat in the house.
Start thinking ahead and get season tickets today! Paying $45 to see Rent on a Friday night from the front mezzanine is a steal and will only be around for a limited time. Be an early bird!
