I had called the Kennedy Center box office when they opened this morning and was told that standing room was under discussion. That has me wondering if the Kennedy Center was making a last attempt to talk ABT into allowing standing room (performers at the Kennedy Center have the power to decline standing room). If it turns out that it was the Kennedy Center's decision, I will not renew my membership since it would mean that they don't need more money.


There is no mention of standing room tickets for Alvin Ailey either, despite 5 of the 7 performances being sold-out and only 1 ticket or a couple of wheelchair slots available for the other 2. This leads me to believe that the Kennedy Center was behind the decision not to sell standing room tickets to Swan Lake.

Maybe the fire department is cracking down?


Not likely, after 45 years. I'm letting my membership lapse, as the Kennedy Center appears to neither need additional money nor is interested in allowing as many people as possible to attend popular shows.
