All this week WFUV News has been introducing you to people who can't get enough of Broadway. Groupies if you will. People who spend thousands of dollars to see their favorite shows again and again and again. But, some theater enthusiasts aren't about to empty their bank account to see a show. So they wait in long lines the day of a performance for discounted seats. These rush tickets cost much less than the regular price.
