This show is now SOLD OUT.
However… we may possibly allow some additional standing room admission, based on our assessment of the room shortly before show time. At around 7:45, we will assess the situation and determine whether or not the room has reached max capacity. At that point, if we feel it is safe (and legal) to allow any more standing room, we will open up a limited number of spots on a first come/first serve basis.
If you already have a ticket, please check to see whether it is a Primary Seating or Secondary Seating/Standing ticket and follow the directions below:
What are Primary Seating tickets?
Because there are no seating reservations, Primary Seating ticket holders get first pick of the seating in the main room. To take advantage of your Primary Seating tickets, you must arrive with your full party no less than 20 minutes before show time. At 20 minutes before show time, any unused seating will be opened up to Secondary Seating/Standing ticket holders on a first come/first serve basis.
What are Secondary Seating/Standing tickets?
All main area seating is available to Primary Seating ticket holders only (up until 20 minutes before show time). You may still come early and eat in in the Green Room, or have a seat at the bar and put your name on a waiting list for seating in the main room. At 20 minutes before show time, any unused seating will be opened up on a first come/first serve basis; if no seating is left, you may sit at the bar or stand to watch the show.

Melanie, who became the voice of an era in one magical instant onstage at Woodstock, has been putting the pieces in order.
Pieces of a career, scattered by the winds of experience and assembled again by the force of love into the most personal and brilliant moments of her musical journey. Melanie is poised to enlighten new generations about what it means to sing with both passion and eloquence, to write at once with intelligence and emotion, and to inspire through song… and nobody does this better than Melanie.
Others learned this that night at Woodstock, where as a New York kid barely known outside of the coffeehouse circuit in Greenwich Village, she sang her song “Beautiful People” and inspired the first panorama of candles and cigarette lighters ever raised at a concert event. That, in turn, moved the young singer to write “Lay Down (Candles in the Rain”), which sold more than one million copies in 1970 and prompted Billboard, Cashbox, Melody Maker, Record World, and Bravo to anoint her as female vocalist of the year. Her single “Brand New Key,” an infectious romp about freedom and roller skates, topped the charts in 1971.
