Starting Friday, the Boch Center will offer a limited number of “pay what your heart feels” tickets for performances of “Finish Line: A Documentary Play About the 2013 Boston Marathon” at the Shubert Theatre.
Created by Joey Frangieh and Lisa Rafferty, it tells stories of people affected by the bombings in their own words. The script was based on interviews of Liz Norden, whose sons were injured, WCVB anchor Maria Stephanos, Mass. General trauma surgeon Dr. David R. King, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans, 1976 Marathon winner Jack Fultz, and others.
“It’s a story about our resilient community that we hope everyone will be able to experience,” Boch Center president and CEO Josiah A. Spaulding said in a statement.
Spaulding said the Boch Center is able to provide the discounted tickets thanks to support from an anonymous donor and Paul and Sandra Montrone. The goal is “to make this show available to many more people for the remainder of the run,” he said.
From March 17-26, “pay what your heart feels” tickets will be available for day-of, in-person box office purchases. The minimum contribution for each ticket is $3, which will be donated to the Martin Richard Foundation and Martin’s Park. Tickets will be available on the day of the performance at the Boch Center Box Office, and two hours prior to each performance at the Shubert Theatre Box Office.
