    Worst seating policy and ushers I've ever experienced. Don't sit above the first balcony section—you won't be able to see or hear.

    Restrooms downstairs; expect a long line for both men and women during intermission

    Can't afford high-price tix? Wicked has a lottery for $25 tix, 2 1/2 hours before the show.

    If you get there late and you're, "on hold" ask about balcony seats for the current act instead of watching the screens. Still a great view and you can get your real seats after intermission.

    Two Degrees bars are sold here! Buy a delicious food bar and give a medically formulated food pack to a hungry child. Is Good. Does Good.

    Aisle seats on the outer aisles stagger outward giving an unobstructed view for children. You can also use booster seats that are provided for children to use.

    Catch the Boston Ballet for cheap by getting to the Opera House an hour before doors open. Tickets can go for up to 50% off. Students can get into most performances for $25.

    I'll be the crass one: use the facilities before the show because the lines at intermission and post show are insane.

    If you can get it, the best seats in the house are always in the "Dress Circle."

    Be respectful and courteous and don't take any pictures or use your cell phone during a performance. There's a reason the ushers get angry when you snap pics: It's rude and annoying.

    Theater is very wide, so seats on extreme sides may be obstructed/limited view. But on the plus side, are likely discounted!
