A ticket tax is a shared cost. The demand curve is more inelastic than the supply curve(in this case) which means the consumer will be paying for more of the effect of the ticket tax than the producer(Katz). Either way it will be a shared cost with over half coming from consumers. Probably in the range of 70% depending on the elasticities of each curve.
