This $25 giveaway is a tradition if the show, which began in 1996 in New York when the musical moved to Broadway. According to a release, it was after a sold out run of the show at a small-town theatre that the idea was sparked. Now, years later, producers are committed to continuing the tradition in every city.
The show dates and times are below:
Friday, Oct. 11 at 8 p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 12 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.
