The very first preview performance in a production’s season run is always Pay-What-You-Will. Advance reservations are not available for PWYW seats. Instead, please arrive at the Blackfriars Playhouse 30-60 minutes before curtain to join the line and claim your seat on a first come, first served basis. PWYW donations will be accepted after the performance.
