    Hi all...

    It sounds like the venue at Absinthe is quite "intimate" but has anyone sat in the VIP section? I think we'll sit there but would love any feedback from those who have been to it re seating.

    COMPLETELY off subject but I have to smile because I just saw that my IPad is autocorrecting "it" as TI. Guess its excited about my upcoming trip too. :)

    Thanks for the feedback.

    No. There is not a bad seat in the House and, personally, I would avoid the first three rows because you will get picked on by the Gazillionaire and may fear for your life with some of the acrobatics inches from your nose.

    I would aim for fourth or fifth row back on the aisle - you will have many performers standing next to you as they are about to come on stage.

    But, ultimately, no bad seats.

    VIP is not worth it. There are no bad seats.

    the only bad seating is if you are short and someone tall sits in front of you (seating is flat, not stadium), but it is general admission so you can always move.

    The only advantage is if you are large or tall. VIP allows you to get one of the small tables or other seating option rather than in the regular stadium seating which are incredibly closely spaced.

    Definitely not a bad seat in the whole place. I bought the VIP Tickets because that is all they had left at the Tickets 4 Less booth and I had stood in line for a half hour. If you sit in the front row you might become part of the show. He goes around and makes a comment about everyone sitting there.

    Yeah, there IS NO VIP SECTION. The VIP tic lets you go in first
    before the... 'rest of us'.

    In re to seating...I've see it twice now, and both times chose the
    upper rear section. Hell, you're still not more than 20' away from the
    action...all sorts of crazy/funs chairs, stools, bathtubs, barber chairs,
    love seats to sit on.
    This way, when one of the artists 'spills' and lands in the first 1,2,3,4, rows,
    YOU DON'T BECOME APART OF THE SHOW! lol...and it has happened.
    Course, I guess that 'DANGER' aspect is part of the fun of ABSINTHE huh.

    I have just booked for July ( not VIP ) and it allocated seat row and numbers so maybe the GA thing is no more

    We saw the show Thursday and there is no more GA seating. We bought seats from tix4tonigt and were seated in the last row. Once every one was seated a guy moved us to the 3rd row.

    The coke/blowjob/puppet sketch still has me laughing 2 days later.

    I'm planning to go with the girlfriends in a couple of weeks. I'm still trying to decide whether to buy tickets ahead of time or get them throuh tix4tonight day of the show. It seems that they typically have availability.

    The hubbie and I saw the show last spring and we loved it. At that time, the VIP ticket got you admission to a private beer garden and a drink from the bar, plus early entry. I don't know that it was generally worth the price since the seating was pretty open and the line wasn't that bad. Having said that, we ended up meeting a bunch of folks and had a blast during the show's pre-game so, I think that I'm actually kind of bummed that they changed this part.
