If you cannot exchange tickets in person (live out of the city, mobility issues), you may mark your tickets with an X and write the date you wish to exchange on your tickets. Then mail these marked tickets or fax a copy of your marked tickets. We can then either exchange them for a different evening of the same performance or issue a tax receipt. If you exchange for an evening with a lower ticket price, we will issue a tax receipt for differences $20 or greater.
