Broadway on a Budget


Looking for things to do as the fall semester gets underway? The Fabulous Fox, located just a block off Saint Louis University’s main campus, hosts an array of award-winning musicals and plays every year. Plus, the venue itself is just as impressive as the entertainment it hosts. Walking into the Fox is like stepping back in time. Built in 1929, the Fox’s ornately decorated, gold and red velvet interior shimmers with the elegance and glamour of the early twentieth century. 


If you are a college student on a budget, “rush tickets” are a way to obtain cheap seats. For certain performances, the box office will allot a certain number of discounted rush tickets to be sold two hours before the show.  Although it depends on the show, rushing gives you the possibility of purchasing tickets for as low as thirty dollars. One of the best ways to stay up to date on rush tickets, discounts, and other special offers is to sign up for the Fox’s mailing list.
