Expandable element Exclusive Online Ticket Exchange for Season Ticket Members*

Season Ticket Members get exclusive access to exchange tickets online up to 24 hours before their showtime for free by visiting the My Tickets page in your account. Note that the next three event tickets appear on the My Account landing page for faster access. As a Season Ticket Member, if you exchange to a lower priced ticket, you'll receive a credit that can be used for additional tickets to the same production only and that will expire at the conclusion of this production if not used. Tickets exchanged into an upgraded location or higher priced date/time may increase the price of the new ticket.

We now offer same-day exchanges for a per-ticket fee up to three hours before showtime. Same-day exchanges are not available online and must be made over the phone at 213.972.4444 or in person at the box office.
