Ticket exchanges by phone may be done by calling 866.523.7469 (M-F, 9am-5pm EST).

You can exchange and manage your account online hassle-free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When you login to your Subscriber account you may print your season tickets at home, exchange tickets online, or transfer tickets for use by a friend or loved one for FREE. If you are opting to make an exchange online and print your tickets at home, please complete your exchange first and then print your season tickets. You can exchange online up to 48 hours prior to the performance date and time of the original tickets or desired date and time, whichever comes first.

 

To exchange by mail please mail the tickets you wish to exchange along with your contact information. Please also include your request for new tickets.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT EXCHANGES:

Unfortunately, comparable seating cannot always be guaranteed. Tickets must be exchanged two business days before your regularly scheduled performance and by Friday at 3:00 pm for Saturday and Sunday performances. The difference must be paid if exchanging into a higher priced performance or seat location. Your subscriber pricing, if applicable, will be honored if you exchange your tickets. However, when exchanging from a lower to a higher-priced performance or into premium seating, the price difference must be collected when processing the exchange. Exchanges may only be made for a different performance of the same show.


 

Please note, for WICKED exchanges must be processed 72 hours prior to your performance.

The group minimum ranges from 10 to 15 people.  Please see the Groups page for more information on individual productions and their policies.


Close
Are there discounts available for Groups?

The Group discount can be anywhere between 5% and 30% off the regular ticket price.  Some shows do not offer discounts to groups but you still get the added bonus of being able to book your seats before they go on sale to the general public and with minimal handling fees.


Close
Is there a difference in the discount depending on the size of my Group?

The size of your Group can affect the discount you receive.  Larger Groups may be eligible for more of a discount.

Complimentary tickets are available for large Groups depending on the production.  Please contact a Group Sales Representative for more information.

Close
Are there Student or Senior rates available?

There can be student or senior rates for qualifying groups depending on the production.  These discounts are often limited to certain price ranges or sections of the theatre as well as certain weeks of the performance run.  Please contact a Group Sales Representative for availability. 


Close
Can I pick my own seats for my Group?

On the online request form, you can specify a desired section for your Group, or you may call a Group Sales Representative to discuss availability. Groups are filled from the best available inventory at the time of the order unless otherwise specified.


Close
Can I purchase Group tickets online?

Yes. Group orders of fewer than 50 tickets are available for purchase online for most shows without having to submit a Group Ticket Request. Click Buy Tickets for one of our upcoming shows on our Groups Shows page and select your desired performance and seat locations to buy your Group tickets right away. Senior Groups, Student Groups, and Groups of 50+ still require a Group Ticket Request.

 


Close
When can I request Group tickets? Do I have to wait until they are on sale to the general public?

You do not need to wait until tickets are on public sale. Group tickets are available for all productions as soon our Season is announced.


Close
Will my Group be seated together?

We try our best to seat each Group as close together as possible, but if your Group is interested in multiple price levels, or a performance that is already well sold, we can split up your group to get the best seats at the price in which you are interested.


Close
Can I add or subtract tickets to my reservation?

Once the deposit is made, you can add or release tickets from your group order up to 2 times before final payment is made – as long as you stay at or above the show’s Group minimum. Once final payment is made you may not release tickets, you may only add.


Close
Can I cancel my reservation if my group is no longer interested in the performance?

You may cancel penalty-free before making your first deposit.  You can still cancel your reservation at any time after that, but all payments are non-refundable. 


Close
How soon will I hear from a Group Sales Representative after I have submitted a ticket request form?

We aim to respond to all inquiries within 1-2 business days, but sometimes we experience a heavy volume of requests and it may take a little longer. If you have not received a response within a week, please call 617-482-8616 or email to check the status of your order.


Close
How soon do I need to pay for the tickets I’ve requested?

A 25% non-refundable deposit is due within 10 business days of receiving your invoice. Final payments are due 30 to 90 days before a show opens.  If you are able and would like to take care of your final payment earlier than that date, you are more than welcome.


Close
Can each member of my Group pay for their tickets individually?

No. The deposit and final payment must be made with one form of payment by the Group leader. We will not accept individual payments for tickets from Group members.


Close
Why do I need to sign the Group Sales Agreement?

The Group Sales Agreement states the Group Sales policies and procedures you must follow in order to purchase the tickets you have requested. The agreement must be signed and sent back to us along with your Invoice before we are able to process your payment. If you have requested multiple shows within a season you only need to submit one Sales Agreement with the multiple Invoices.


Close
How/When do I get my Group tickets?

Once your final payment has been processed, your tickets will be printed and shipped via UPS up until two weeks before a show opens. Tickets purchased after the Groups shipping deadline will be held at the Box Office for Will Call pick-up. In that case, one individual must pick up all tickets and distribute them to the Group. If you require a different method of shipping, such as USPS or in-person pick-up, please notify the Group Sales Department when making your final payment.


Close
What do I do if someone in my group needs accessible seating?

If you are filling out an online request form, in the comments section please highlight the accessible need, or contact a Group Sales Representative prior to filling out the form to address the request.


Close
Someone in my group lost their ticket(s), what do I do?

If tickets are lost or misplaced, please notify the Group Sales Department immediately to arrange for a ticket re-print. We cannot re-print tickets without exact seat locations, so please keep track of locations when distributing tickets to Group members. Once a ticket is re-printed with a new bar code the original ticket will be voided for use to enter the theatre. Re-printed tickets will be made available for Box Office pick up only. We will not ship re-printed tickets.


Close
Are there refunds or exchanges if my group cannot attend the performance we purchased tickets for?

There are no refunds or exchanges on Group tickets.


Close
I ordered a dinner package. What do I do now? Do I need a voucher?
