Claybourne Elder Talks Paying It Through CORPORATE Tickets on PIX11

Claybourne Elder appeared on Pix11 This Morning to discuss starring in Company on Broadway and how he pays for it by giving members of the public the chance to win free tickets to shows after a stranger gave him the money to see his co-star Patti LuPone in Sweeney Todd when he was in college.

“I had COVID two weeks ago and I was coming back to the show and I was very excited so I decided to buy two tickets to the show and give them away on Instagram…Strangers started stalking me. send money to buy more tickets for people who couldn’t afford to go see the show, so I ended up getting over a hundred tickets in two weeks for strangers.”

Elder also touched on his appearance on HBO Max’s The Gilded Age, which premieres January 24. Watch the new interview below!
