The night will feature a conversation between Executive Producer & Artistic Director David Armstrong and Artistic Associate Albert Evans about both musicals and a sneak peek performance of songs from Holiday Inn.

All performances will take place as scheduled, regardless of weather conditions.

Some shows deal with mature themes and may not be appropriate for all children. For information on whether a particular show is suitable for your child, please see the Parental Guidelines included for each show. Complimentary booster seats are available at the Coat Check.

Third-Party Tickets

We strongly discourage patrons from purchasing tickets through outside vendors. Tickets bought from scalpers, brokers or by other third-party means may be counterfeit or inadmissible, and they are often grossly overpriced. These purchases do not benefit the performers, producers or The 5th Avenue Theatre. Purchasing directly from the 5th Avenue Theatre is your best bet for best seats and best available prices.

The use of cameras and video or audio recording equipment is strictly prohibited. You may leave these items at the Coat Check.

Smoking Policy

Smoking is not allowed in any part of the theater nor within 25 feet of the theater entrance.

No firearms of any kind are allowed in any part of the theater.
