Too late. It's all sold out. I tried to get 3 seats for this Wednesday night, but they were gone before I could order them. I phoned last Monday and there were only two seats on two nights left. That was a week ago, so I'm sure nothing is available anymore. I hope the Lesher extends the show or brings it back, or maybe one of the theaters in the TriValley could get it. I really want to see it.
