    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.
