2019/20 Membership Handbook

Booking Seats

We'll send you an email when your one-week (two-week for Membership + Friend) advanced booking begins — that’s your cue to log in and reserve your seats for that show! Every notification includes essays and information about the show. You can book online by visiting our ticketing site powered by Ticket Central. You receive priority booking ahead of the general public, so be sure to act early to guarantee prime seats.

Please note: As of the 2017/18 season, Membership packages do not receive bulletins/booking notifications in the mail. If you are unable to receive emails and require notifications by mail, contact our Playwrights offices.

Members have access to one $25 ticket to any preview performance per show, plus guaranteed discounts for all other performances. At your request, we’ll hold them at will call for easy pre-show pickup, or you can print them at home. 


We know seeing our plays is a priority for you, but sometimes life gets in the way. Members can exchange their tickets up to 24 hours before the scheduled performance time for a nominal fee.

Guest Tickets

The only thing better than going to the theater is bringing a friend along for the journey. You can purchase one guest ticket for $55 per production, a substantial savings compared to the general public’s price. Are they already season package holders? Contact Ticket Central for assistance booking seats with friends.  


It’s important that absolutely anyone can experience our productions. That’s why our theaters are wheelchair-accessible, and we offer audio description and assisted listening devices at all performances. We also offer one ASL-interpreted performance per Mainstage performance and GalaPro, a free captioning app, at every performance after a production’s opening night. If you have any specific seating requests or accessibility concerns, please call us and we’ll take care of you.

Up-to-Date Information

We want to be sure you hear about everything happening at Playwrights Horizons, no matter where life may take you. Please make sure that we have your most up-to-date contact information on file throughout the season. If anything is wrong with how your details are listed on your payment confirmation, please contact us so that we can change it in a flash. 

Neighborhood Discounts

Members receive a range of discounts at local restaurants, hotels, and parking garages just by showing your Playwrights Horizons ID card. The Plan Your Visit page has a full list of discounts and offers. Thanks in advance for supporting our neighbors!
