First things first. Glory Days is most definitely coming to Broadway.
How do I know? Because I just received an e-mail message from Broadway.com inviting me to get tickets in its one-week pre-sale.
Now, here's the rub. To get your tickets, you need to provide your credit card information and make the purchase without knowing where your seats are. In other words, it's a free for all, except it ain't free. Although it states that tickets are $97.50 up front, it ends up costing $121.50 a pop.
As a rule, I never buy tickets unless I know where I'll be seated. After inserting my credit card information, I clicked the little "proceed" button and next thing I knew, without any warning, I had a transaction in progress. Next thing that popped up on my screen said:
You will receive your confirmed seat locations by e-mail within one business day. If for some reason we cannot fill your request, we will send you a courtesy e-mail to follow up.I would have preferred the courtesy of knowing that the last of many "proceeds" actually meant "purchase."
Is this any way to sell tickets??
