LYP Patron and LYP Associate level members can add on two tickets to each of their Medley performances at the special $35 price. Tickets can only be added to performances and dates already in their Medley Series and are non-transferable.
How do “floating tickets*” work?
Depending on your membership level, LYP Medley subscribers can add up to six tickets to their Medley subscription for the whole season at the special $35 Medley price.

May I exchange my Medley tickets?

Exchanges can be made by calling Audience Services at 312-827-5600; your new date must also be a valid LYP Medley series date of the same title. If exchanged fewer than 5 days in advance, fees will apply.
