On the eve of previews kicking off, the folks at "Rock of Ages" HQ in the Sunset Strip 7-11 (home of those wonderful cherry Slurpees!) have announced some special packages / seating offers, as well as made an effort to clear up some of the speculation about drink service and the day-of-performance ticket lottery system.
Here we go...
VIP GREEN ROOM BOX ($295.00 for 4 tickets): Party the night away in the best 'see & be seen' seats in the house. This ultimate party package includes four cushy seats to the show located in one of only four mezzanine boxes, and includes your own waiter.
PREMIUM SEATS (Ticket Range $135.00 - 175.00) A premium ticket at ROCK OF AGES actually gets you something more than nifty aisle seats; you also get waitress service and access to the VIP Mezzanine Lounge starting one-hour before curtain.
DRINK SERVICE (For all orchestra ticket holders) Come one, come all. Starting 30 minutes before every show and during intermission, audience members seated in the orchestra will be able to buy color-coded drink chips (to eliminate money exchange/ credit card transactions during the show) from one of the several waiters disbursed throughout the orchestra or at the bar. The chips can then be redeemed during the show, from your seat, for the drink of your choice. While the show is playing (and if you have not purchased any drink chips or are seated in the mezzanine), drinks may be purchased at the bar and can then be taken back to your seat.
LOTTERY TICKETS Two hours prior to every performance, there will be a lottery drawing offering $26.50 tickets for selected seats in the orchestra. Entries accepted at box office beginning two and half hours prior to each performance. Names will be drawn at random two hours prior to curtain time. Winners must be present at the time of the drawing. Limit one entry per person, and two tickets per winner. Cash only.
All tickets (including VIP Green Room and Premium Seats) can be purchased via Ticketmaster.com / 212-307-4100 or in person at The Brooks Atkinson Box Office, 256 W. 47th Street.
Rock on, everyone and I'll see you on the Sunset Strip starting tomorrow...HELLS, YEAH!
