1. So wait, what shows does the Lincoln pass get me into?

You get into all shows held at the Lincoln Theater from Oct 25th through 28th. There will be at least 1 show per night during that time.

2. Yeah, but what are the shows?

Sunday is going to be Tig's show, but the rest haven't been announced yet. They will feature: Phoebe Robinson (2 Dope Queens), Cameron Esposito & Rhea Butcher (Take My Wife), Amanda Seales (Smart Funny & Black), Michelle Buteau (Late Night Whenever), and our token boy Jonathan Van Ness (Queer Eye) + more TBA!

3. How much do I save?

We can't say exactly how much yet, but no matter what, you will definitely save money vs buying tickets to all the shows. Most shows will be around $35 each + a bunch of convenience and service charges that are more than the convenience and service charges here.

4. Are there any other benefits of the Lincoln Pass?

Well, you get to skip the non-Lincoln pass line if there is a line (there usually is) and possibly some more stuff.

5. Are there shows the Lincoln Pass won't get me into?

Yes! Well... probably! We usually have a couple shows at different venues that the pass does not get you into. Or it might (see #4). The Lincoln shows will be the big main shows though, any other shows will be smaller shows. Some may happen at the same time as a Lincoln show, others may be at different times. You potentially could skip a Lincoln show and see another show and still end up saving money or breaking even.

6. Are the tickets transferrable? 

Nope - the name on the ticket has to match the name on your ID. You are allowed to buy multiple tickets under your name and bring a different date with you each night. But you can't just give it to someone else if you can't make it on a particular night.

7. Anything else I should know?

All the shows will be all ages. The tickets are non-refundable. You will get one ticket which will be used each time you attend a show. You'll check in with a special BYT staff member at the front entrance. BYT manages all aspects of the Lincoln pass, not the Lincoln Theater, so if you have questions/problems/etc., ask us. Talent subject to change.
