RENT 20th Anniversary Tour

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway…and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A re-imagining of Puccini's La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love.

RENT Lottery Information

Seats in the first two rows of the orchestra section will be available for $20 for every performance of the RENT 20th Anniversary Tour.

The $20 tickets are available for in-person purchases at The Buell box office on the day of each performance only.

Two and one-half hours prior to each performance, people who present themselves at The Buell Theatre box office will have their names placed in a lottery drum; thirty minutes later, names will be drawn for seats in the first two rows at $20 each.  (we are taking cash or credit)

This lottery is available only in-person at The Buell box office, 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 orchestra seats for $20 in each city the show will play.
