Broadway tickets can be difficult to get — navigating different sites, trying to get the best deal, and facing sold out performances can make planning a trip to New York to see the latest Broadway hit a challenge. However, with the help of David Azulay, Trinity Rep’s manager of VIP services and special events, purchasing tickets to your favorite new show is a breeze.
An exclusive donor benefit, David serves as the personal concierge for “Inner Circle” patrons, friends of the theater who donate at least $1,500 annually. At this level, donors get personalized service for ticket exchanges for Trinity Rep shows, and for donors at the Designer level ($2,500+), access to the best seats on Broadway and beyond. Over the years, David has secured some of the most coveted Broadway tickets for Trinity Rep donors.
How it works
When a donor calls David they give him the dates they will be traveling and their preferred shows. Using Trinity Rep’s network and status as a world-renowned theater, David works to secure house seats for productions that are not available publicly. That means you could see a show listed as sold out on its website or when you call the box office, but David may still be able to get you tickets.
Last year, a donor reached out to David to try to get Hamilton tickets for his wife’s birthday. Shows were sold out and tickets were at sky high rates, but when David called his contact in New York, he was able to secure two tickets on her special day – fourth row, center orchestra without the patron having to do any of the leg work. This year they’re continuing the tradition by going to the Tony-winning Hadestown on her birthday.
And there’s more…
VIP Concierge Service extends beyond Broadway tickets. David helps patrons to book hotel rooms, restaurant reservations, and theater tickets in other cities like Boston and Chicago. He’s even given patrons recommendations for contractors, private drivers, and other local services. David can also serve as a direct line for box office access at Trinity Rep, even when the box office is closed.
