If I arrive late for a performance, will I have to wait to be seated?

Performance times are printed on all Shubert tickets - latecomers will be seated at the discretion of management.

Due to the policy of the individual show, you may be asked to wait in the lobby. You will be seated during a designated break in the performance when it will cause the least amount of disturbance to the production and patrons already seated. For your convenience, a large screen TV is available for you to view the performance while you are waiting to be seated.

What time do theatre doors open for a performance?

The main entrance doors to the lobby typically open 1 hour prior to the start of the show, the door to the theatre opens closer to showtime. Please check each show's event detail page for specifics regarding the event.

Do I have to buy a ticket for my small child even though he/she is sitting on my lap?

I bought tickets next to each other, but my seat numbers show they aren’t side by side!

The arrangement of numbered seats allows our ushers to identify your seating location and help seat you quickly:

LEFT AND RIGHT SECTION SEATS: seats on the right side of the theatre have even numbers, and seats on the left side have odd numbers. Although your tickets may ‘seem’ to be off by one number, they are next to each other.

CENTER SECTION SEATS: are numbered sequentially with numbers from 101 to 114.
