RELENTLESS On Demand
We are thrilled that while TimeLine’s world premiere of Relentless continues its acclaimed (and nearly sold-out) run at Theater Wit, you now have the opportunity to purchase tickets to watch the show from the comfort of your home!
Your purchase of a “remote viewing” ticket gives you at least two evenings to watch a performance of Relentless (EXCEPT: After Friday 2/25, deadline to view is Sunday 2/27 at 11:59pm), filmed with four cameras on January 29, 2022 and edited to provide a detailed and intimate experience of the production.
For those who don’t yet feel comfortable visiting the theatre in-person, or who live outside Chicago—or who just haven’t been able to secure tickets—this is your chance to see this play that the Chicago Tribune raves is “the best new work here in years.”
BUT DON’T WAIT! On-demand remote viewing tickets are limited in number and can sell out!
Sales for Relentless On Demand Remote Viewing have closed. Thank you for your support!
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
— While supplies last, On Demand Remote Viewing tickets are available for purchase starting now through Sunday, February 27 at 8 p.m.
— Tickets are available on a “Pay What You Will” basis—you may pay $35 or $50 (these prices are inclusive of all fees, and there is no difference in the stream based on price). We encourage you to pick the price level that is most comfortable for you. We ask that you please consider how many people will be watching the play when selecting your price level and number of tickets.
— When you purchase, you’ll receive a link, password, and expiration date/time for your stream with your ticket confirmation email, and can begin watching immediately.
— Each remote viewing ticket entitles the ticket holder to a one-time viewing of Relentless.
— Purchases made on or after Friday, February 25 will expire at 11:59 p.m. CST on Sunday, February 27. Sales end Sunday, February 27 at 8 p.m.
— All you need to watch is a stable internet connection and your computer, tablet, smartphone, or smart TV.
— The entire performance has been captioned; you’ll be able to toggle captions on or off as you prefer.
— REMEMBER! Remote Viewing tickets can sell out! Due to union agreements, TimeLine is allowed to sell only the total number of viewings (whether live or remote) that we have seats in the theatre. Thus, we have a limited number of remote viewing tickets to offer, and we can sell out. Secure your ticket(s) early to ensure you are able to experience this incredible show!
— IMPORTANT: The videotaping or making of electronic or other audio and/or visual recordings (including photographs) of this online production or further distributing or sharing of this recording in any way on any medium, including the internet, is strictly prohibited.
