Frequently asked questions

  • Can I still buy a subscription for the 2022-2023 season?

    Subscriptions for our current 2022-2023 season are closed and no longer on sale. Sign up for our newsletters to stay in touch and up to date about our upcoming subscriptions! And check out what's next on our stages and get your tickets today!

  • How do I make changes to my current subscription?

    1. Sign in to My Account
    2. Instead of paying your renewal invoice, click on the package you are interested in purchasing (e.g. Create-Your-Own package) 
    3. Select the package you are interested in purchasing and your preferred seats.  Applicable subscriber discounted pricing will be available to you. 

    Note: If you are switching to another series, there is no guarantee that your same seats will be available. Current subscribers' to curated packages are guaranteed their seats until the renewal deadline. After the renewal deadline, any unrenewed seats will be released for sale.

  • How do I pay for my subscription in installments?

    As part of the checkout process, you will have the option to pay in installments, with one third payable on subscribing, the second payment to be processed on July 11, 2022, and the third payment to be processed on August 15, 2022. Tickets for the next season will not be available electronically or by mail until full payment is received. 

  • I’m not comfortable attending indoor performances yet. What happens if I do not renew my subscription package?

    Good news!  If you are a subscriber to a curated package, your subscription seats and your subscriber status are guaranteed through to the 2023-2024 season.  If you are a subscriber to a Create Your Own package, you retain your subscriber status through to the 2023-2024 season.

    Unfortunately, Broadway performances cannot be included in our packages; however, tickets to shows through to Fall 2022 are on sale on a per show basis now.
