Are you still offering "+Friend" add-ons?

To join, renew your support, or for more information, please contact Mihika Miranda, Individual Giving Associate, at mmiranda@phnyc.org or (929) 445-5361.

What is your policy on mobile devices?

We ask that guests silence ringers on all mobile devices prior to the beginning of every performance, but we hope you’ll connect with us online. Keep an eye out in the program and lobby for a hashtag to use on social media and tag us at @phnyc on Twitter or Instagram, or at Playwrights Horizons on Facebook!

Audience members who are D/deaf or hard of hearing, however, can use mobile devices to view captions during select performances with a Playwrights Horizons loaned or personal closed captioning device that may remain on and in use during the performance. These devices may include a cell phone, a tablet, or an iPad/iPod. These devices utilize an app (GalaPro) that offers digital text displays that emanate some light. Please join us in creating a safe and inclusive space for all patrons. If the small glare of the screen from someone else's device affects your enjoyment of the production, please speak with a member of the FOH staff.

What if I arrive late to the performance?

Late seating is at the discretion of management for each performance.

Is your venue wheelchair accessible?

Yes, we have wheelchair accessible seating in both our theaters. Seating charts are available here. Please contact our box office at 212-279-4200 or email accessibility@phnyc.org with any questions.

Do you provide assisted listening devices or Closed Captioned performances?

We have assisted listening devices available at every performance in both of our theaters. Our productions also offer GalaPro, a free app for smartphones and devices, delivering closed captions at all performances after opening night for each show.

What is your mask policy?

Currently, wearing face masks is optional, but encouraged.

Certain performances may be deemed "masks required" but will be clearly noted as such on our performance and event calendar and via the ticketing website and checkout process.

What kind of concessions are offered at performances?

For shows in the Mainstage theater, we offer alcholic and non-alcoholic beverages, candy, and snacks. These may be consumed in the theater. 

What if I cannot attend my performance?

Visit our Ticket Exchange Policy for more information on how to exchange your tickets. All exchanges should be requested at least 24 hours in advance
