Home-Printed Tickets for Stage Shows in UK

Britain’s second largest ticketing company is to introduce print-at-home and mobile phone ticket sales for the theatre sector, in a move it claims will ease box office queues and help stamp out ticket fraud
Customers will be able to buy tickets online and print off confirmation from their home computer which includes a barcode that can be read by ushers at the theatre using a handheld scanner. The system, which is already common on Broadway, cuts out the need to visit the box office on arrival and makes it harder to for tickets to be forged
(from The Stage). I've never seen any Chicago venue do this. Do any?
