We called ahead to reserve a seat. Tickets were available at the door. We went early after dinner & sat on the front row. This was a fantastic night. Don't miss it, whatever you have to do. Just go. Incredible show.

I called the show and paid for the tickets over the phone. I think you can purchase online and you can also buy them just before the show. It was not full.
