In 2018, Duke Performances made an unprecedented move by introducing a new $25 ticket price for the vast majority of shows. The idea behind the pricing is to make art more accessible and affordable; to offer greater flexibility to people who want to sample the work of unfamiliar artists; and to support a strong sense of community around the shared experience of art at a time when Durham is undergoing rapid change. It our hope that this initiative will induce patrons to attend not only more live performance, but to stretch their comfort zone.
