If finances are a concern, Theater J strives to include a variety of ways in which you can see great performances at great prices.
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.
For PWYC performances, please take note that the box office opens 1.5 hours prior to the performance. Tickets are cash only and limited to 2 per person. Although seats are assigned - tickets are first come, first served. You can line up as early as you wish.
Purchasing Pay-What-You-Can Tickets Online: For the first time ever, Theater J is making available a limited number of advance tickets for the Pay-What-You-Can previews – skip the line at the door by reserving your pay-what-you-can tickets now.
