We’re really great at making sure everyone gets to their seat and doesn’t miss a second of the excitement. If you’re not in your seat at the start of a performance, you may be asked to wait to enter the theater. In some instances, delayed seating may not take place until intermission. Late seating times are established by each artist working with our house management staff. Please allow extra time when traveling to NJPAC to ensure you have plenty of time to get to your seat before the performance begins.

Glass bottles and open containers are not permitted in the theaters. When drinks are permitted in the theaters, they will be sold to customers in plastic or paper cups with lids.

Sorry, you know the drill. Cameras and audio recording devices are not permitted in the theater. The taking of video and pictures, especially flash photos, is disruptive and inconsiderate to both the artist and other members of the audience.
