Subscription Renewal Deadline: Thursday, May 23rd
Renew by May 23rd to keep the same seats for the same series or to have your change request processed before new subscriptions.
Please note whether you’d like to keep your same seats and series on the online order form and indicate any seating change requests in the special instructions section.
Subscription renewals received by the May 23rd renewal deadline are processed before new subscriptions. Renewing subscribers requesting the same seats and the same series are seated first, followed by those who request changes to their seats and/or series (in the order they are received). Subscription renewals received after May 23rd are seated in the order in which they are received, along with new subscriptions. Priority is given to donors of $100 or more.
New Seating Sections
There are two seating sections in the Playhouse – Section A (the center section of the main floor) and Section B (the side sections of the main floor and the balcony).
When ordering online, please choose the subscription price that corresponds to the section you prefer. If there are any issues with availability, someone from audience services will contact you.
Playhouse Seating Charts
Although we can’t accommodate specific seating requests, please indicate any needs we should consider in the “Special Instructions” section of the online order form.
