Advance Reservation

Advance Reservation for Summer for the City guarantees entry to select shows, allowing you to skip the General Admission line. Please check the event's dedicated web page to confirm if Advance Reservation is available for the performance you'd like to attend.

Reservations will open every Monday at noon for that week's events and close at 3:00 pm the day of the show, or when Advance Reservation tickets are all booked—whichever comes first. For weeks with an observed holiday on Monday (May 30, June 20, July 4, and July 11), reservations will open instead on Tuesday at noon for that week's events.
