About the JOHN McDONALD SALON READING SERIES

Reservations & Ticketing
The Acting Company does not issue physical or digital tickets for the Salon Series Readings. To claim your reservation, simply check in at our registration table in the theater on the evening of your scheduled reading. You will be issued a program at that time, which will also serve as your ticket into the theater. As a subscriber, you will also be handed a card indicating your reserved seating location.

Subscribers do NOT need to reserve their seats for individual reading dates. We will assume your attendance unless you advise that you are unable to join us. If you cannot attend, we would be grateful if you would inform us so that we may make seats available to other patrons. Please email boxoffice@theactingcompany.org or call (212) 258-3111.

Seating & Logistics
As a Salon Series subscriber, we will reserve excellent seats for you in the prime front center section of the theater. Please advise us if there are other subscribers with whom you prefer to be seated, and let the Acting Company staff know if physical necessity requires that we place you in a particular seating location (ie. aisle, no stairs, close to the stage) by calling (212) 258-3111 or emailing boxoffice@theactingcompany.org.

All readings take place at 7 PM. The house will open at approximately 6:30 PM.

Guest Tickets
Subscribers may purchase additional Salon Series tickets for their guests at the regular price of $35. Subscriber guests will receive the added benefit of reserved seating so that your party may be seated together.

Receptions
Each Salon Series reading is followed by a complimentary reception during which all audience members can mingle with the cast. Receptions include wine, non-alcoholic beverages and light hors d’oeuvres. Please join us for a drink and conversation with the evening's performers!

Refund & Exchange Policy
All Salon Series single ticket purchases are final. However, should you know in advance that you will be unable to use your tickets, please contact us and we will credit you with a tax-deductible contribution for the value of your tickets.
