A love affair I’m forced to end

Being a theater buff, I love attending live productions.  Over the years, I’ve dragged my husband, and now my children to many shows.  But I’m afraid those days are coming to an end.  The price of tickets have become so outrageous, I can no longer justify the incredible expense.

Fourteen years ago, I took my husband to see Beauty and the Beast—the cost, $75 per ticket.  No we weren’t right up front, but we were on the floor for that price.  Today, $75 won’t even get you upper mezzanine seating.  How sad.  The pricy tickets will probably keep many of our younger generation from ever experiencing this art form.  How sad.  I’m sure the industry will swear the inflated costs are there for a number of reasons, none of which would be greed.
