Artscape stops taking online reservations for ticketed events

July 15, 2011|By Erik Maza | The Baltimore Sun

Artscape stopped taking online reservations for ticketed events today. Those tickets are now only available at Guest Services at Lyric Opera House, or at the ticket stations on site.

Some readers had complained about glitches on the ticketing website today.

Tracy Baskerville, spokeswoman for the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts, said the website's server was overwhelmed.

"We have had a high a volume of folks on the web site [sic]... and our web company is increasing our space," she wrote over e-mail. 

But as for the tickets, all pre-event reservations have sold out, Baskerville said.

Most venues that have ticketed events, though, allow for walk-up buyers. "The best bet will be to come on site," she said.
