Arts Notes

August 18, 1996|By Karin Remesch | Karin Remesch,CONTRIBUTING WRITER

In addition to its regular-season subscriptions, the Mechanic Theatre is introducing the Broadway Flex-Pack. Patrons who choose the Flex-Pack select any three or more shows on dates that fit their schedule and receive priority seating before individual tickets go on sale -- and save up to 10 percent of the ticket price.

Full-season subscription tickets are still available. And, starting this season, tickets can be purchased through TicketMaster, giving theater patrons access to 75 ticket outlets in the Baltimore/Washington area.
