As strikes continue, Broadway's Here Lies Love is now offering a rush ticket policy for labor union members.
Those with a valid union card are eligible to purchase $39 tickets at the Broadway Theatre box office all day on the day of the performance. Tickets are subject to availability and limited to a maximum of two per person.
Here Lies Love also offers general rush tickets and a digital lottery. The musical from Grammy, Tony, and Oscar winner David Byrne and Grammy winner Fatboy Slim began its open-ended run in June, featuring immersive staging that transforms the Broadway Theatre into a dance club.
