There is no specific dress code at the theatre. For all performances, attire should be comfortable and appropriate for the occasion. Please remember the theatre is air conditioned during the summer months; sweaters are recommended.
The seating procedure for latecomers varies by seat section. Generally speaking, late patrons who are seated in the orchestra may be held in the lobby until approximately twenty minutes after the performance begins. They are then escorted directly to their seats by an usher.
For the protection of all patrons and to help enforce all COVID protocols, theatre managers and private security personnel are on duty during all performances. All bags are inspected upon arrival. Luggage, shopping bags and other large packages that will not fit comfortably with you at your seat will not be checked or allowed inside the theatre.

We have seats at all price points. The best seats at the best prices will always be available at the box office or through Ticketmaster – both have the same inventory of tickets. If you buy your tickets in person at the box office you can save the service fees. Please remember that, if you buy tickets through brokers or third party sellers, there will always be higher markups tacked on, with no guarantee of seat location. NEVER buy tickets on the street – they may be counterfeit, and if so, will not be honored at the theatre.
Please be advised that each patron must have a ticket to enter the theatre. The Gershwin Theatre box office cannot print tickets purchased from a third-party website.
Orchestra seats are on the main level of the theatre.
Front Mezzanine seats are at the front of the upper level of the theatre (Rows A-E). On a big spectacular show like WICKED, they provide a great view of the whole production. Be aware that there is a low safety bar in front, which means the front row may not be ideal for short patrons or children.
Mid Mezzanine seats are in the middle of the upper level of the theatre (Rows F-G) – however, there are a limited number of these seats available and they sell out quickly. These also have a great view of the whole production.
Rear Mezzanine seats are in the back of the upper level of the theatre (Rows H-M); however, again, there are a limited number of these seats available, and they also sell out quickly. These also have a great view of the whole production, and are always the most economical choice.
Please note that, within the range of tickets shown, the lower prices are generally on weekday performances (Monday through Thursday) and non-holiday weeks. During the summer, the lower prices are generally on matinee performances (Wednesday and Saturday).
Stadium seats are in the back half of the orchestra of the theatre, and start as low as $115 on weeknights for certain performances. These have great sightlines due to the rake of the seating, and are great for families with children. Many people say that these are the best deal at WICKED.
Tickets go on sale approximately 6 months before the performance. You will get the best price if you buy in advance – as the performance date approaches and availability tightens, the prices will often go up, so plan ahead if you can.
We encourage guests to purchase tickets in advance to ensure the best seating locations, however seats remain on sale until performance time, based on availability.
Please go to our ticket calendar and select the best availability filter to see which performances have best availability.
