Pay-What-You-Can and $30 Preview Performances
What is a Preview Performance?  A preview performance is an opportunity for the cast and crew to fine tune the show based on the response of a live audience. Sometimes there will be changes made prior to opening night - but it is a full performance with all elements in place.

At the beginning of every run we generally offer 1-2 PWYC Performances and 1-2 $30 Preview Shows.
