The Shakespeare Tavern® is an intimate playhouse of approximately 200 seats. We feature a three-tiered seating system (except on Thursdays and any Preview performance. During these times seating is General Admission). You can choose where you would like to sit in our theater (depending on ticket availability). Click on the pictures below to get an idea of what you'll be seeing from your seat! Seating is first-come, first served within each seating area*. Seating for Preview performances is General Admission.
During much of the 2016-17 Season, mainly the History plays and Doctor Faustus, tickets will be at a premium because the configuration of the room will limit seating. The plays will be performed either entirely in the round (the action will take place on the Main Floor, with the audience seated on the stage and around the room) or with a modified layout (For example, the top two levels of the balcony may not be available since sight-lines will be obstructed). This is to give the audience and actors and even deeper connection with one another and the play's text. The space will feel more intimate.

*Since seating is first-come, first-served within each section, it is not guaranteed, particularly if your party arrives close to curtain, that we will be able to seat you all together, especially on sold out nights. We will make every effort to do so, but it is not guaranteed. Also please note that a limited number of tables/seats are held in advance for those patrons who purchase the Royal Upgrade Packages.
For a variety of reasons, it is necessary that our front doors be locked half an hour after each performance. If tickets are not picked up by then, they may be rescheduled for another performance. Seating is not guaranteed after the performance begins.
Food and Beverage Service: The Tavern opens one hour and fifteen minutes before the performance for food and beverage service. Chef for a Night provides a Ready-to-eat cafe-style menu, made fresh the day of the show, for dinner. The Tavern has a beer, wine, coffee, tea, and soft drinks and a bar that serves Bass and Guinness on tap. Food/drink bars close 10 minutes before performance. Mixed drinks available in the lobby only.
Box Office: To purchase tickets or more information, call The Tavern Box Office at 404.874.5299 or order your tickets online here.
Waiting Lists on Sold Out Nights:
If you would like tickets to a performance that is already sold out, you have two options:
Option One: If you are calling for tickets at least 24 hours in advance of a sold out performance:
You can put your name on a waiting list for any tickets that become available. You can do this over the phone or via email (please include your phone number when emailing the Box Office.)
This is best option if you are flexible with your schedule and do not mind being called at the last minute. Tickets tend to be released around 5pm the day of any performance. WE WILL ONLY CALL THIS WAITING LIST IF TICKETS BECOME AVAILABLE.
We usually don't call after 5:30pm (4:30pm on Sundays). You must be able to purchase these tickets over the phone should we call you. If you are on this waiting list and do not receive a call, it is because no tickets were released.
If you still would like to take your chances, try option 2:
If you are wanting tickets for the sold out performance that night:
On the night of the sold out performance, you may come to the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse to put your name on a waiting list in person for any seats that are available. We will release any unclaimed tickets and seats to this waiting list 5 minutes prior to curtain. We tend to allow 6-10 people on this waiting list in on sold out nights.
We cannot guarantee that you will be able to purchase food or drink beforehand, but the food and drink bars are open at intermission with desserts and drinks. You can request the Box Office person give you a "Hall Pass" to go and get food and eat it in the lobby while you wait. (You may not choose seats at this time, food/drinks must be eaten in the lobby).
We also cannot guarantee that your whole party will get to sit together as we will be seating you in available seats, which may not be together.
This option is great for gamblers and for people who just want to see the show.
We start this waiting list when we open the lobby at 5:45pm (4:45pm Sundays).404.874.5299 x 0
