Tony winner Paolo Szot will join WABC anchor Sade Baderinwa at Alice Tully Hall's new box office (Broadway at 65th Street), on Thursday, January 22 at 10 am.

They will sell the first tickets to the Opening Nights Festival, a two-week celebration designed to showcase the Hall's prominence as one of New York City's premier concert venues. Everyone in line will also be entered to win free tickets to the Festival, as well as one free pair of tickets to see Szot in the sold-out performance of South Pacific on Valentine's Day, February 14, at 8pm.

After nearly two years of construction, this will be the first time the general public can enter the lobby. The renovations were designed by architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with FXFOWLE. The facilities include a mezzanine-level donor room for special events, more restrooms, a café/bar, wi-fi, and an expanded box office and ticketing area. Alice Tully Hall will officially re-open on February 22.
