    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.

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

    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.

    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.
