How was your experience?
Did not see it. This is what I emailed the theater after I left: "Good afternoon. After purchasing a ticket online recently, I drove over from over an hour away to try out your theater this afternoon. (Ticket confirmation below, including the statement that my ticket would be available at Will Call 30 minutes prior to the show.) Upon presenting the confirmation, I was told that "those" tickets are not handed out until ten minutes before show time, and that the 30-minute statement in the confirmation would not be honored. Having been made to feel like a beggar or sub-par attendee, I told the ticket attendant she could consider the ticket price a donation and left the theater. I do not have plans to return after receiving this treatment. The show program, like those of the many independent theaters around town, is filled with pleas for donations and volunteers and noting how much higher ticket prices would be if they truly covered costs. I can only assume that you make tickets available on sites such as Goldstar (found through promotion of your show on arthound.com) in order to reach out to those who haven't attended or interacted with your facility before, or as an additional advertising avenue, making this unwelcoming procedure upon arrival all the more astonishing. I encourage you to have Goldstar correct what they are telling your potential clients, so that no one is surprised at being set aside to wait."
