Shows & Tickets
The Inheritance is an epic drama presented as two full-length plays: Part 1 and Part 2. It is recommended that audience members see both Parts for the full experience and story.
While we encourage you to see both Parts for the full experience, buying each Part separately is an option. We do recommend purchasing a ticket to Part 1 first as elements in Part 2 may be unclear as characters and plot points are referenced throughout Part 2.
Part 1 and Part 2 performances will be staggered throughout the run, and due to the extended running time of each Part, showtimes will be earlier than our normal schedule:
Part 1 runs an estimated 3 hours and 10 minutes, including two intermissions.
Part 2 runs an estimated 3 hours and 20 minutes, including one intermission and a brief pause.
Yes! On select weekend dates during the run, Part 1 will be performed at the 1:00pm matinee, and Part 2 will be performed the same evening at 7:00pm.
The lobby will be open one hour prior to showtime and we have a selection of snacks and drinks available for purchase. No outside food is allowed. The theater lobby will close between performances, so we recommend making a 5:00pm dinner reservation with one of our restaurant partners for a meal between performances.
You can purchase individual tickets to both Part 1 and Part 2 at regular ticket prices. Save up to 30% off tickets by becoming a season subscriber. Click here to view subscription packages.
