The Tivoli Theatre Foundation will host a Broadway open house at the Tivoli Theatre Monday, June 5, from 6-7:30 p.m. At the open house the public will be able to pick their seats and purchase subscriptions for the upcoming 2017-2018 Broadway season. The Tivoli Theatre will serve complimentary champagne and light snacks in addition to playing select musical numbers from titles on this year’s Broadway season.

The Tivoli will open an hour early at 5 p.m. for Friends of the Tivoli at the $250 donation level and above.
