The same-day rush tickets, available to those holding a student ID or a membership card from MAC (the Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs), will be sold at the box office beginning at 10 AM on the date of each performance. Tickets, priced at $13.50, must be purchased in person, and there is a limit of two tickets per person. The offer is good for any remaining seats in the $100, $50, and $25 tiers.

In a statement, Artistic Director KT Sullivan said, “The Mabel Mercer Foundation sees this offer as an extension of our charter, by which we might provide students—and other performers and musicians—an affordable opportunity to enjoy the great popular songbook, both traditional and present-day. Mabel Mercer herself reveled in singing both the old and the new across her entire 70-year career; she never stopped adding contemporary material to her presentations.” Read More
