Zhang Financial Broadway season subscriptions are available now and are the best way to receive discounted tickets and priority seating. Subscribers can see all four Broadway shows for as low as $36 each and only pay $36 per month using a four-month payment plan option, if enrolled by Friday, June 29. Subscriptions are available now. As an extra benefit, subscribers can add Spotlight Series shows to their order, most at a discount.

Another way to gain early access and priority seating is to become a Friend of Miller. With donation levels starting as low as $25, members can purchase priority discounted tickets to Lake Michigan Mailers Spotlight events and, depending on donation level, be the first in line for tickets to Broadway shows before they go on sale to the general public. Members will also be notified when a new show is added to the season and have the ability to purchase tickets first.

Single ticket on-sale dates will be announced later this summer. Group tickets are available now for all performances by calling (269) 387-2312. Most shows have discounts available for groups of 10 or more.
