On every show, bar stools and cocktail tables are available in the back of the room on a first-come, first-serve basis. As a courtesy, we also have an ADA viewing area near the stage for anyone physically needing to sit during the show. If you need to be seated in ADA section just let our friendly staff know when you arrive and they will direct you to your seat.

The time listed on your ticket and on the purchase page of the website is the door time, not the show time. Set times vary and typically are not announced till the day of the show and can change without notice.
