Smart Seats at Playhouse Square

Since 2006, thousands of people have utilized Smart Seats to experience live performances at Playhouse Square. Dubbed “Smart Seats” because of the enriching nature of experiencing the performing arts and because the low cost of acquiring this experience is such a smart value. Are you looking for a date night, quality family time, a girl’s night out, or just a fun and affordable time at the theater? Take a chance on Smart Seats, see something new, choose from Broadway shows, dance performances, musical concerts, comedy events, children’s theater, plays and more for the smart price of only $10.00.

Look out for the logo, it means Smart Seats are available for that specific engagement. Be sure to check this website regularly, as new Smart Seats-participating shows will be added throughout the season.

It’s Smart Entertainment at a Smart Price.
