We are happy to offer different options for patrons who may need additional services.
PATRONS WITH MOBILITY DISABILITIES

- The covered parking garage on the corner of 55th Street and S. Ellis Avenue has accessible parking on the ground levels and an elevator. Simply take a ticket from the machine upon entrance, and use the S. Ellis Avenue exit gate after the show. For 30 minutes following the performance, the S. Ellis Avenue gate will automatically raise when your car approaches for a free and easy exit. It is not necessary to insert your ticket upon exiting at the gate. If you stay for a post-show discussion, please ask the House Manager for a validation ticket.
