A few days ago we read an article in the New York Times that made us shake our heads in disbelief.
We just can’t believe it! Never in our long history of theatre have we experienced fake tickets at the box office! Even the Times article said that “counterfeit tickets were rare.”
Well, as we mentioned at the beginning of the month, Hamilton’s popularity is sky-rocketing and–apparently indicative of their popularity–there are reports of fake tickets almost daily!
DAILY! Wow. This is such a surprising trend for Broadway. Oh sure, you hear about it at sporting events and music concerts, but as we mentioned it’s not anything we’ve seen in theatre.
Imagine, as one poor guy trying to surprise his wife, spending $600 on tickets that are fake!
While on one hand it seems silly to be saying this, we would urgently like to remind you to buy your tickets from the theatre or your usual source–even if it means waiting many months to see Hamilton!
