Only on the day of performance, Broadway in Cincinnati announced that they'll be serving up $25 tickets for every performance of Rent when it stops in Cincinnati from Dec. 11-23. The show is currently on its 20th anniversary tour. 

A Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winner, Rent is a musical take on Puccini’s La Bohème, which follows the lives of seven artists attempting to follow their dream without selling out. Whereas La Bohème explores a community ravaged by tuberculosis, Jonathan Larsen's Rent is set during the peak of the AIDS epidemic. 

You can snag seats in the front-side orchestra two hours prior to each performance at the Aronoff Center Box Office (650 Walnut St., Downtown). The "rush" tickets tradition began in New York 1996 when the show hit Broadway after it sold-out a smaller theater.

"The producers of the show are committed to continuing the tradition of offering these orchestra seats in each city the show will play," reads a release. 

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday; 8 p.m. Friday; 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday; and 1 and 6 p.m. Sunday. Visit Broadway in Cincinnati for more info.
