Doors open 45 minutes before show time. This allocation is to allow time for security and bag inspection on your way in. Thus, we highly recommend patrons to arrive no less than 15 minutes before show time.

Worried that you will be late? The seating procedure for latecomers varies by seat section. In general, late patrons who are seated in the orchestra may be held in the lobby until approximately twenty minutes after the performance begins. They are then escorted directly to their seats by an usher.
