Please arrive on time out of courtesy for the performers and your fellow audience members. Arriving late may result in seating holds or alternate seating within the theater. Admission or re-admission of latecomers is ultimately subject to the producers’ discretion and guidelines for each individual show.

Buying New Subscriptions

A season ticket package—or subscription—allows you to purchase the same number of tickets for every show in our main package. Whenever possible, your performances will fall on a set day of the week and time, and you will also have the same seat assignment for each show. More information about subscriptions and benefits can be found here.

Please visit our Season page for more information about season ticket holder benefits.

Season tickets usually go on sale around the first quarter of each year (January – March) when we announce the season lineup. To be notified when subscriptions become available, you may sign up for our eCLUB here.

Premium subscribers receive all the convenience of season tickets, premium seating locations, and additional benefits exclusive to Premium subscribers. For more information about subscriptions and benefits, please visit our Season page.

New and renewing subscribers have the option to take part in our interest-free Payment Plan when buying a season ticket package! Opting into the Payment Plan splits the total price of your season package into multiple installments, which we automatically charge to your card at no additional cost. For more information, please call us at 1-866-523-7469.

Renewing Subscriptions

Renewals for each season usually begin in the first quarter of each year (January – March). Once the new season is announced, you will have until the renewal deadline to pay for your tickets by logging into your online account or calling us at 1.866.523.7469 (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm EST).

Automatic Renewal is an optional program that makes it easy to keep your seats year after year! When we announce the next season, you won’t need to take any action – we will automatically renew your same seats using the card on file. Automatic Renewal subscribers are still able to opt into our interest-free Payment Plan and will receive an invitation to participate in upgrades after the renewal period ends. If you would like to sign up, please call us at 1.866.523.7469 (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm EST).

Exchanging and Adding Tickets

This is one of the best benefits of becoming a Broadway In Boston Season Subscriber! If you are unable to attend your scheduled performance, you may exchange for another performance of the same production. You may also exchange or upgrade into new seats for the same performance.

Exchanges may be made by calling our Subscriber Hotline at 1.866.523.7469 (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm EST), by logging into your online account here .

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 5:00 pm for 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 will be available for a limited time frame, and exchanging into a non-subscription week may result in additional fees. 

Exchanges may only be made for a different performance of the same show. Refunds from exchanging into a lower-priced ticket or performance will be processed within 7 business days.

We apologize if there is a show in your season that you cannot make or have already seen; however, we are unable to offer you a refund on those tickets. Bear in mind that one of your subscriber benefits is the ability to exchange into another performance of the same show. You may also transfer your tickets to a friend or loved one for free by logging into your online account here

Additional tickets purchased by phone or online will incur a $10 service charge.

To guarantee priority seating, please be sure to order your additional tickets before they go on sale to the general public. Show dates, on sale dates, times, prices, and artists are subject to change without notice.

We will send you an email notification with more information once additional tickets and exchanges become available.

Season Options/Specials are not part of the main package and are sold to subscribers on a first-come, first-serve basis, so we cannot guarantee your usual seats for them. Bear in mind that these shows often play for shorter runs or have different schedules than main package shows.
