Plan Your Visit

Bag Policy

We highly recommend that you leave all bags, luggage, or instrument cases at home. As a security measure, the Berklee Performance Center does not have storage available for these items. These items can also be inconvenient to other patrons in the theater as space is limited around your seat. In the event that you cannot avoid bringing a bag with you to an event, be advised that it will be subject to search.

Refusal of a bag search will result in denial of entry to the event. Berklee Performance Center management reserves the right to prohibit a bag from coming into the theater at any time. This policy is subject to change without notice.

Seating Policy

Everyone entering the theater must have a ticket, including children and infants. Once the performance begins, seating will be at the discretion of management and may be delayed until a suitable pause in the performance.

The Berklee Performance Center does not have an elevator to access the mezzanine or balcony levels.

Food or beverages are not permitted inside the theater.

During Performances

Many artists do not allow duplication of their performances, so cameras and audio/video recording devices are prohibited.

As a courtesy to the performers and other audience members, cell phones, pagers, and other sound or light-generating electronic devices must be turned off or on silent mode during performances.

Smoking (including vaping) is not permitted in any Berklee building, including the Berklee Performance Center.

Keep aisles and exits clear of bags, instrument cases and other belongings. Standing in the aisles is not permitted during performances.

Take a moment to locate the nearest exit before the performance begins. In the unlikely event of an evacuation, follow instructions provided by the house manager and uniformed security officers, and walk—don't run—to the nearest exit.

Concerts can get loud; earplugs are available for purchase at the box office window.
