Wondering if your seats are together when they are not consecutively numbered? Many theaters split their seating into “left”, “right”, and “center” sections, and they often assign odd numbers to one side and even numbers to the other for organizational purposes. For example, seats 1 and 3, or 23 and 25 would be next to each other on one side, while 2 and 4, 34 and 36 would be next to each other on the opposite side of the theater. The middle/center section tends to be a three-digit number, like 100, and is numbered consecutively, 101-102-103-104.
Limited view seats generally have a partial view of the stage due to the viewing angle in the theatre. Obstructed view seats have a partially blocked view of the stage due to objects such as columns, railings, or sound equipment.
There is no specific dress code. Most people enjoy dressing up to go to the theatre, and some events, such as opening nights, will draw a dressier crowd. For theatrical performances, you will see people in everything from casual to formal wear.
We recommend that you arrive at the venue at a minimum of 30 minutes before the performance to allow plenty of time to park and get seated. Doors will open between 60 minutes prior to start of the show and may vary on show-by-show basis.
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.
Food and drinks can be purchased from the concessions stand in the lobby.
In the unlikely event that a performance is canceled, the Broadway in Portland will inform customers via phone, email, or mail with information regarding the ticketing policy. Ticket holders are encouraged to return to their original point of purchase for more information. In cases of inclement weather, we strongly recommend that patrons travel safely and allow plenty of time to arrive at the theatre. During inclement weather, updates will be posted on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.
