What is the Director’s Row? Why is it so expensive?
The Director’s Row is the row in which our Artistic Director, Tony Williams, prefers to sit during rehearsals and shows.  You will often see him there, right in the center.  It is the best acoustical and site-line advantage in the house, in his opinion and therefore he offers these tickets at an elevated rate to experience the show in its perfect scenario.
Are any seats obstructed? 
Yes. They are clearly marked by the theatre and only sold under knowledge that they are obstructed.  Only a handful of seats are obstructed.  Many still offer a wide majority of stage view. We do our best to not sell these seats if possible, but make them available for a discount through the theatre.
