Riverdance, the Celtic dance sensation which will play Broadway's Gershwin Theatre March 3-June 25, 2000, will unleash its tickets on the public Oct. 17 at noon. Tickets will be available through phone sales only, through Ticketmaser at (212) 307-4100. Callers outside the metro New York area should call 1-800-755-4000. The on-line address is www.ticketmaster.com. Riverdance has previously played New York, but never Broadway specifically; past engagements in 1996, 1997 and 1998 have been at Radio City Music Hall, which recently reopened after undergoing a major renovation.
Moya Doherty will produce and John McColgan is the director. Riverdance will begin previews on March 3 for an official opening on March 16.
