Terry Goddard Fire Knocks Out Arizona Theatre Company's Phone Lines

The Arizona Theatre Company is asking potential customers to buy tickets online or from its Tucson box office after a fire at state Attorney General Terry Goddard's house knocked out phone lines.

Jennifer Spencer, spokeswoman for the company, writes in a comment on our post about the cause of the fire that high volumes of calls were expected for the opening week of "Beethoven, As I Knew Him."

See below for Spencer's complete comment:

Due to a fire at the home of Attorney General Terry Goddard, Arizona
Theatre Company's administrative office at 502 W. Roosevelt Street has
no access to phone or internet, including ticketing software. Any
patron who calls the ATC box office or administrative office will
receive either a hang-up or a busy signal.

As this week is opening week of our musical Beethoven, As I Knew Him,
ATC is expecting a high volume of ticket sale phone calls. All patrons
are directed  to either the ATC website at or
the Tucson Box Office at 520-622-2823.

Crews are working onsite to restore the lines; however, when fire
damage is involved, the team typically requires 2-3 days before
everything is up and running.
