First come, first served seating stinks. Those in the know got there very early. The rest of us "virgins" didn't do so well. Although there were not really bad seats, lots of attendees did not get to sit with their companions.
Get to the theater at least 45 minutes early in order to find decent seats two together. You have to stand in two lines if you have a ticket at the box office. It was too hot and humid to have to stand in lines outdoors for so long for a 5 pm performance.
