Broadway Producer Offers $50 Tickets Because of Coronavirus

Broadway producer Scott Rudin is cutting prices to his five Broadway shows amid the coronavirus outbreak.

“The Book of Mormon,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “West Side Story,” “The Lehman Trilogy” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” are all sold out, but are playing to half-empty theaters because of concern about the virus.

So beginning on Thursday at noon, Rudin is taking tickets that have been returned to the box office and is offering them to the public for $50. Ticket prices for those shows normally top out at $200.

The ticket offer applies to performances through March 29th.
