What happens if I arrive late to the performance?

We try our best to begin all performances on time. If you arrive late, you will not be allowed in the theater, but you can watch the performance over the monitors located throughout the lobby.

Some performances — but not all — may have designated pauses, in which late arrivals can be seated at the discretion of the ushers. We recommend that you wait close to your seating area’s entrance so that we can seat you as soon as possible if there is a pause.
