CAN CAN Table Seating Left
The Left Can Can Seating section is on the Orchestra level of the theater. This level is accessible step-free from the street and main entrance.
The Can Can Seating is not accessible for wheelchair users.
Movement in and out of the section is restricted by the catwalk and runways, so the section may not be suitable for any theatergoers who need easy access to the restroom.
CAN CAN Table Seating Right
Can Can Table Seating Right is accessible step-free from the theater’s main entrance, on the same level as the Orchestra. This section is not suitable for wheelchair users.
During the performance, the tables are surrounded on all sides by catwalks and runways so easy entry and exit is not available. You are also encouraged to remain in your seat at all times except for during the intermission. This section could be unsuitable for anyone who might need to leave the auditorium midway through the show.
