Can PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh renewing subscribers request additional subscription tickets in their subscription renewal order?

Requests for additional season tickets will be accepted but not all requests can be granted due to demand. Season tickets will sell out. When renewing subscribers place orders starting Tuesday, March 27 at 10 am, they may request a limit of two additional season subscriptions. All orders will be time-stamped upon completion. Additional subscriptions will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis and processed after all renewing season ticket orders are seated. Subscribers will be notified in early summer if additional subscriptions were assigned to their order. Please note that additional subscription tickets cannot be seated next to your existing season tickets due to existing subscribers occupying those seats. We will make all efforts to locate additional seats as close to existing seating locations.

Renewing subscribers have until Tuesday, May 1 to place their season ticket order and retain their current seating for the 2018-19 season. If you are a renewing subscriber and not requesting additional subscription tickets in your order or submitting a change request, we recommend placing your order in April.
