This theater will only seat you in the last 2 rows no matter what the seating availability or when you purchased your tickets. Goldstar does not state this in the description of the seating, only describing the section and providing a seating chart. Very misleading.

Description

There never has been a weekend in the country quite like this, as loves are lost, found, yearned for and sent packing to the tune of some of the most breathtaking songs ever written, including the classic “Send in the Clowns.” Sophisticated and stylish, this musical based on Ingmar Bergman’s “Smiles of a Summer Night” abounds with wit as romantic liaisons are played out beneath the mysterious night lights of Sweden at the turn of the century.
