VIP Seats, Buying & Selling Tickets

"Follow me to your VIP Seats!"

by vipseats June 14, 2012 08:41

We've all been there at one time or another.  You arrive at the venue with your guest for that much anticipated sold-out concert event of the year.  You pull out your tickets and head for the turnstyles.  You begin to focus your attention on the sound of the ticket scanners beep, beep, beeping ahead and your thoughts turn so negative that you start to experience panic attack symptoms!  Your heart starts pounding and your palms start to sweat.  Could our tickets be counterfeit?  What if we get denied entry?

Once inside the gate, your attention turns towards locating your seats.  You find your section number on your tickets and begin to reference the venue signs to determine which direction to take.  You follow the arrows and numbers and make a beeline straight to your section. You start praying to St. Joseph that you will locate your seats and not look like a clueless jackass as you navigate unfamiliar corridors.  As you approach your section, your thoughts again turn negative as you begin to ask yourself, "What if there's someone else sitting in our seats?",  "What if the tickets are behind the stage, or even worse, 'obstructed'?!"  As you finally arrive at your section, your fast paced walk suddenly slows to a crawl and then to a dead stop as you look down and try to make sense of the numbers and letters on your tickets.  It's pitch dark, loud and you're confused.

You look up to see a grey-haired man in uniform with his hand extended asking to see your tickets.  He takes a moment and uses his flashlight to see, and then analyze your section, row and seat numbers.  He looks up, smiles and says, "Follow me to your VIP Seats!".

My friends, you've just been introduced to our new company tag line.

NEW YORK — Once upon a time, a quirky film made on a shoestring turned into an unlikely Oscar-winner and, even more improbably, a Broadway show.

Now, "Once" has completed its Cinderella story, winning the coveted best-musical Tony award Sunday for its bittersweet love story that has captured the hearts of theatergoers, just as it did with movie audiences in 2006.

"Once" won eight awards in all, including for its lead actor, Steve Kazee, who brought movie-star looks and a soulful singing voice to the part of Guy, a street musician in Dublin who falls for a Czech immigrant flower-seller.

Kazee gave one of the most poignant speeches of a night that had many of them, paying tearful tribute to his mother, who passed away on Easter Sunday. He also thanked his cast mates, especially co-star Cristin Milioti, for helping him cope: "They carried me around and made me feel alive."

"Once" triumphed over the more obviously commercial "Newsies" for the top prize, and that was a theme of the night — many of the top-honored shows were neither big-budget nor star-driven, and a number had started off-Broadway in small theaters.
