    Empty seats will be allocated to people holding standing room tickets at the last minute and if there is still no seat for you when intermission, you'll get a refund.

    If you've got a standing room ticket, sit on the red bench at the north entrance of the theatre and wait until the show is about to begin.

    There is a "pay your age" program but it doesn't apply to standing room tickets.

    The building is huge, though the theater is still intimate with great views from every angle.

    Eat before you get here! Over-priced, confusing, understaffed. It could be such a nice experience. I liked Le Bon Cafe better.

    Don't eat at the cafe there. Awful, overpriced food served on paper plates. Be sure to make dinner plans elsewhere prior. FYI- there are no decent restaurants in the area.

    Did you know there's a subway stop just one block from the Arena Stage? Get off at the Waterfront stop and leave the car home.
