A Christmas (gift) Story

I can now tell the story of the tickets.

Wicked is coming to Toledo in April. 

One might guess that I would want to see this.  The only person who maybe wants to see it as much as me, is my niece.  So when I found out last year that it would be hear in 2010 there was no way I was not going to see it, and I thought I would buy three tickets.  My Kates, my niece and myself.

I did some research found out when the tickets would be on sale and started marking it on calendars.  The tickets did not go on sale until the first week in December.  For months and months I have been double checking dates and verifying and getting more and more excited.

As the sale date got closer I started hearing more and more media about it.  And then I heard the news, they were expecting the tickets to sell out within a few hours. They were planning on people lining up hours and hours before the tickets went on sale at 8am on a Saturday.  I was horrified. It’s not good enough that you get tickets to this thing, because of the venue it’s in, you have to get good seats.  The seating is horrible.  There is almost no slope to the theater and if you’re under 5’5″ you are not going to be able to see. 

So, my husband was dedicated to getting me up and in line early and perfectly willing to stand out it the snow with me. The week before I was obsessively checking every day to make sure I didn’t have any details wrong.  Then, on the Thursday before the tickets were to go on sale I wandered over to ticketmaster and that’s when I noticed something odd.  The purchase screen where it normally tells me tickets are not on sale now has a new box on it.  And this box says “PreSale code”! PRESALE CODE????   Son of a Bitch!  Somewhere out there is a code that will get me tickets early!

I spent hours googling every phrase I could think of to find a back door or contest or something somewhere that would get me that code.  No luck. I cannot tell you how bummed I was.  The last thing I did was go back the venues website and follow their twitter.  I was hoping that I would get some info from it.  I logged into my twitter account and the night before they had tweeted one word.  TWEET. 

I held my breath went back to ticketmaster, typed it in and BAM!

  6. It was good, but I really liked Wicked best.

  7. Jeeez… Why should it be necessary to have a secret code in order to get tickets?
