When applicable, latecomers will be admitted at the discretion of management, based on the production. Seating assignments are not guaranteed after the start of the performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What time should I arrive for a performance?

The lobby opens an hour before the performance, and the house typically opens 30 minutes prior to the performance. In general given the unique configuration of our events, there is no late seating, and performances begin promptly at their posted start time. We recommend that you arrive early to make the most of your time at the Armory.

Is the Armory accessible to persons with disabilities?

Yes. For individuals requiring assisted access, a sidewalk-level entrance is available at 103 East 66th Street, located just east of Park Avenue. Patrons can ring the service bell when they arrive, or can make arrangements prior to arrival by calling the main security desk at 212-616-3950, Ext. 1. Please call the Box Office for information on accessible seating for performances at 212-933-5812.

Do I need to print the tickets that were emailed to me?

You can either print the PDF of your tickets, or you can show them on a mobile phone (at maximum brightness).

Why haven’t I received my tickets via email yet?

Tickets are emailed as a PDF attachment from Park_Avenue_Armory@armoryonpark.org. Spam filters sometimes put ticket emails in your Junk Mail folder because of the attachment. Please note that there can be a delay in time from when an order is placed and the tickets are sent by email. To have tickets resent via email, please contact the Box Office at solutions@armoryonpark.org or 212-933-5812.

Is the Armory open to the public?

The Armory is only open to the public during tours and programming. Tours can be booked online and typically take place on select weekday mornings at 10:00am. Visit the Tour page of the website for more information.

Do I have an assigned seat?

Every production at the Armory is unique for audiences. Productions in the Wade Thompson Drill Hall typically have assigned seats or are standing room, and performances in our historic period rooms including our Recital Series and Artists Studio events are typically general admission. Your ticket will indicate if you have a seat number or if it is GA (general admission).

Where can I find a seating chart?

For productions with assigned seating, the seating chart is included on the ticket purchasing page of the website once a performance date has been selected. Only zones with available seats will appear in the dropdown menu.

Can I pick my seat online?

When you pick a zone, you will automatically be seated in the best available seat for that zone. If you have specific seating requests such as wheelchair seating or an aisle seat, please contact the Box Office at solutions@armoryonpark.org or 212-933-5812.

Is there a lost and found?

Please call the main security desk at 212-616-3950, Ext. 1 to check for lost and found items.

For recommendations of nearby restaurants, please contact the Box Office at solutions@armoryonpark.org or 212-933-5812. Armory patrons also receive special offers at select nearby restaurants.

Is there a coat and bag check?

Complimentary coat and bag check is available for select productions. Please contact the Box Office at solutions@armoryonpark.org or 212-933-5812 for more information.

Is there a dress code?

You will see all sorts of dress at a performance at the Armory, from casual to business professional attire. Formal dress—evening gowns and tuxedos—are generally worn only to galas or opening night celebrations. Most people consider a performance at the Armory to be a special event, and we encourage you to dress for the occasion to make the most of your visit with us.

Is there a wait list for sold out performances?

If a performance is sold out, please call the Box Office at 212-933-5812 to join the wait list for advance ticket sales for that performance. Should any tickets become available, the Box Office contacts patrons on the wait list by phone in the order that the requests were received. Any patrons that are on the wait list but have not been contacted to purchase tickets by the day of the performance are welcome to join the in-person standby line one hour before the start time in the order of arrival.

Is there a standby line?

On the day of a sold out performance, there is an in- person standby list for full price tickets one hour prior to the performance start time. Patrons will leave their names on the standby list in the order that they arrive. Names will be called from the standby list if any tickets become available. Please note that there is no guaranteed availability of standby tickets.

Are there rush tickets?

Generally there are no rush tickets. The Box Office will have the most up to date information for each performance.

Is there student pricing?

For performances and visual art installations, there are typically no student rates. The Box Office can provide more information on specific performances. For tours, students receive a discounted rate.

Should I buy my ticket on a ticket resale website?

Park Avenue Armory is not responsible for tickets purchased through unauthorized third parties such as ticket brokers or online outlets such as ticket resale websites. Tickets purchased from third parties may not be valid and may be unusable for admittance, and we cannot replace lost or stolen third-party tickets. Tickets purchased from third parties may be priced much higher than the ticket’s actual face value, and we will be unable to contact holders of such tickets about program changes or cancellations.

Help us serve you in the best manner possible by purchasing your tickets only through the Armory, by phone at (212) 933-5812, or online at armoryonpark.org.

Should I bring my child to the Armory?

Due to the nature of the Armory’s programming, children under the age of eight are not recommended to attend performing arts events, unless otherwise noted. A recommended age for children attending visual art installations is determined based on the nature of the work, and can be found on the website. All attendees must have a ticket regardless of age, and the Armory reserves the right to remove disruptive persons from its spaces.

The Armory does offer family programs during the school year based on specific productions. Visit the Education section of the website for more information.
