Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, SWEAT tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets, and laughs while working together on the factory floor.

Ticketing FAQs

I don’t live in NYC and am in a different time zone. Will I be able to watch this performance at any time?

For Live Performance (Zoom): To replicate the experience of being in the theatre, the performance will start at 7pm on Saturday and Sunday (Eastern Time). Please tune in at that time (taking into account the time difference, as applicable) as you will not be able to pause or rewind the live performance. We will notify all ticket buyers when a stream of the performance becomes available.

For Streamed Performance (YouTube): Once you buy the streaming ticket you will be sent a link, which is immediately active. You may watch the show anytime between November 3-7, as many times as you wish, between your purchase date and the closing date, November 7, 2020.

Are the performances taking place online or at The Seeing Place?

As The Seeing Place is closed due to COVID-19, the performances will be hosted digitally. Once you have purchased a ticket for your chosen performance, you will receive a link prior to the show to watch from the comfort of your own home.

I’ve not received my confirmation email or the streaming link, what should I do?

You should receive an email immediately after purchasing your ticket, and it will come directly from Ovation Tix/Theatermania with a link to watch the performance. Be sure to check all spam and junk folders first, but if have not received your link by 10am on the day of the performance please emailĀ outreach@seeingplacetheater.com. Note: if you reach out to us AFTER the performance has started, we will not be able to get back to you until after the performance. Plase still email us explaining your circumstances, because we can arrange to transfer your live ticket to a streaming ticket.

There are different ticket prices - what does that mean?

These readings are a benefit for the Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St Louis Region. You may support the organization and see the show by getting a $10 ticket. But some people may want to donate more - therefore, there are $25 and $50 tickets available. There are no special benefits for those ticket holders - they simply are able to contribute more to our beneficiary.

I want to see the show, but I feel uncomfortable about my donation going toward this non-profit. What can I do?

We understand. Let us know at outreach@seeingplacetheater.com, and we can give you a way to make a direct contribution to one of our three campaign funds, which will earmark your contribution to another area related to our theater. We will then send you ticketing information separately.

I would like The Seeing Place to get a contribution in addition to my ticket purchase - how do I do that?

First of all - thank you! Chose your preferred show date/time/ticket level, and when you get to checkout, there will be an option to add a donation to your order. This will go directly toward The Seeing Place's Annual Fund.

Is it a different performance each night?

As with all live theater, the Zoom performances are live and are, therefore, slightly different each night. If you want to watch multiple times, you will have to purchase a ticket to each performance.

I want to purchase a ticket for myself and a friend in another household in one order. How will I be able to share the link with them?

Prior to the start of your chosen performance, the ticket purchaser will receive an email with the link to the stream. If you have purchased two (or more) tickets, the link can be given to that ither person provided it is not shared beyond a ticketed patron.
