    7pm doors, 8:00pm show, all ages, bar w/ ID, plenty of non-reserved seating available.

    Benefit Event!  All bar profits all go to support adult literacy programs via Literacy Source.

    ADVANCE TICKETS:  Tickets go on sale through The Moth email system (sign up and select Seattle) and they do sell out fast. Usually about 1 week before the show.   Note: Premium tickets let you get in early and skip the big line but do not guarantee a seat if you’re not there at 6:45.

    WAITING LIST:  Online tickets can sell out in an hour or less, but about 20-50 spots are available at the door ($8 cash only) and we have a convenient waiting list system for you.  Here’s how it works: Simply line up when you can (lines often start by around 6:15pm and then the waiting list goes up outside on the door promptly at 6:30pm.  Once you sign up, feel free to go grab dinner and check back in at 8pm as actual entry will be based on space available at 8pm only, so you have to be outside at 8pm as we read down the list until the venue is full.

    Signup on the Abbey Arts email newsletter to find out other ways to get into The Moth such as the hard to get free Volunteer spots!
