SCRANTON — The snow may have stopped a lot of things on Thursday, but not a tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons
The Jersey Boys show at the Scranton Cultural Center played on.
Broadway in Scranton says about 850 people showed up for the performance. About 1,000 had bought tickets for the show.
Susan Thomas from Mount Cobb is one of the 150 people who did not make it to Thursday night’s performance of Jersey Boys in Scranton.
Thomas will not get a refund but there’s still a chance for her and those other ticket holders to see the show.
“It’s not fair. it Kind of ruined our Valentine’s Day because this was for Valentine’s.”
Thomas and her boyfriend planned to see Jersey Boys at the Scranton Cultural Center until the winter weather hit.
They spent $136 on tickets.
“We couldn’t go because the weather was so severe and we tried to call and get our money back or see another show. They told us they couldn’t do that,” Thomas said.
Thomas says first, she called Ticketmaster.
“Then we called Scranton Cultural Center and they said that they couldn’t do it. Even though we’re upset that so many people had called and they weren’t doing anything about it.”
A spokesperson for Broadway in Scranton says the Scranton Cultural Center just holds the event; Broadway in Scranton is the place that these people need to contact because they’re the ones who sell the tickets.
The cultural center’s Facebook page has been getting a lot of comments regarding the show. A post on the page explains ticket holders who did not go because of the snow should contact Broadway in Scranton.
Broadway in Scranton says it is doing what it can to accommodate those who didn’t make the show.
Thomas says she wanted to go but wasn’t going to risk it.
“The choice was either to try to go and get stuck or get killed, so we stayed home to be safe. I think they should do something about this.”
