*Details about First-Access Passes and the Standby Line
There is a four-pass limit per guest. Reserve passes online at arshtcenter.org or by calling the Adrienne Arsht Center box office at 305-949-6722. Guests without a First-Access Pass are always invited to join the standby line.
First-Access Passes do not guarantee admission. First-Access Passes give guests access to seats beginning one hour before curtain, but seating is “first-come, first-admitted” for the performance. First-Access Passes expire 15 minutes before showtime.
Guests without a First-Access Pass, and any Passholders who arrive within 15 minutes of showtime or later, are invited to join the standby line. Guests in the standby line will be seated 15 minutes before curtain – if seats are still available.
Guests are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy a variety of preshow activities before each performance.
