This information is to help the consumer who is often confused by the disparity in pricing for popular shows on the internet. And there are risks in buying from unofficial sources that are sometimes not obvious. Tickets obtained from unauthorized sources may be stolen, counterfeit or invalid and may not be honored. Tickets purchased from other sources are often inflated in price and not eligible for assistance if tickets are lost, stolen or in the event the show is cancelled or rescheduled.
Lou Raizin adds, “We don’t want our customers coming to the theatre for a great night out to find out that their tickets are not valid.”
