Seattle Rep. E-Ticket Generator Offers 50% off Tickets

A few weeks ago we reported on Seattle Repertory Theatre’s inaugural run with its Electronic Ticket Generator, a system that allows patrons to spread the word about a play and offer others discounted tickets using various social networking tools.

So far the usage rate has been small, a mere 3%, and no one has bought tickets through the new system. The Rep. staff isn’t fazed, pointing out that they are only in early stages of testing, and excited to see what happens when they offer deeper discounts for The Brothers Size, which opens this Friday.

The discount rate for the show will be a hefty 50% off tickets purchased through the ETG, a much more enticing offer than the previous $5 deduction.
