The Conversation: High Ticket Prices

Scalper tickets to see the Rangers in the World Series start at about $400 and go up to several thousand dollars. Which got us wondering: What’s the most you’ve ever paid to attend a high-profile arts event (concert, Broadway show, etc.) and was it ultimately worth it? Drop us a comment to let us know.

CTA TBD

A weekly question to prompt discussion about the arts.
