The Adler Theatre has announced that limited seating in the first four rows of the orchestra section will be available for $20 for the performance of RENT, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical. The $20 ticket does not include a $3.00 facility fee. Tickets are available for in-person purchases at the Adler Theatre Box Office (136 E. 3rd St.) on the day of the performance only, two hours prior to the show. The tickets are available on a first-come basis to the public. The $20 tickets are limited to two tickets per person.

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.

RENT performs at the Adler Theatre on Wednesday, May 17 at 7:30 p.m. for one night only.

For general ticket information, please call the Adler Theatre Box Office at 563-326-8555.  The box office is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.   Visit for more information.
