True Tickets Brings Its Renowned Service to Houston's Historic Alley Theatre

HOUSTON, April 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- True Tickets, the secure digital ticket delivery service for Tessitura organizations, is proud to announce a partnership with Houston's esteemed Alley Theatre. This collaboration marks True Tickets' continued expansion into the Houston market, introducing its innovative ticketing service to one of the largest professional nonprofit theaters outside of New York City.

Founded in 1947, Alley Theatre is a pioneering force in regional theater and a recipient of the Tony Award® for Outstanding Regional Theatre. With a history of premiering Pulitzer Prize-winning plays and transferring productions to major stages worldwide, Alley Theatre has long been a cultural cornerstone in Houston, annually engaging nearly 250,000 people through a dynamic blend of classics and new work.

Alley Theatre’s building, a striking example of Brutalist architecture, opened in 1968 and has since been a symbol of Houston's commitment to the arts. The theater's unique design features, like the tension wire grid for innovative lighting and the absence of traditional curtains, make it a marvel of modern theater architecture.

The partnership with True Tickets introduces a new era of digital ticketing to Alley Theatre, enhancing the audience experience with the convenience and security of digital ticketing. True Tickets' service will streamline the ticketing process, ensuring that patrons' focus remains on the extraordinary performances that Alley Theatre is known for.
