Lincoln Center Out of Doors makes every effort to present each event of the season, as long as unpredictable summer weather allows. For up-to-the-minute updates about show status and other news, follow us on Twitter at @LCOutOfDoors.


Seating in Damrosch Park is first come, first served, and gates are open typically one hour prior to the performance, unless otherwise noted. For popular performances, lines often form in advance of opening, and seating may reach capacity quickly. If you choose to stand in line, we recommend that you bring water and sunscreen and that your entire party be present.
