Tickets that are accessed through your smart phone. Broadway In Chicago is encouraging patrons to switch over to mobile ticketing as it is a more secure and easier way to manage tickets.

Connectivity may be intermittent at the theatre; we encourage you to view your tickets on your mobile device and add them to your Apple Wallet before heading to the show or for Android users, add them to your Google Pay before heading to the show


3. Do tickets need to already be printed to view them in MY ACCOUNT via a mobile device?

No. If tickets were already printed, then your Broadway In Chicago Account on Ticketmaster will display the existing barcode. If tickets have not already been printed, then your Broadway In Chicago Account will generate a barcode when the tickets are retrieved.


4. When I retrieve a ticket using MY ACCOUNT via a mobile device, will it invalidate existing tickets that were previously printed?

No. If tickets were already printed, then your Broadway In Chicago Account on Ticketmaster will display the existing barcode via a mobile device.
