Essential Life Support
Concert halls have restrooms, but sometimes they are far away from the music. If you arrive early at the concert, you’ll have time to find the restroom and plan a route from the auditorium. At intermission, be prepared to wait in line. For some reason, most concert halls don’t have enough restrooms to accommodate everyone quickly.
Drinks and Snacks
Some concerts have drinks and snacks on sale at intermission. Ask an usher where to go. In large theaters there may be a bar, and perhaps even a snack bar. Don’t plan on finding a meal at the concert, though. The food on sale is most often snack food and desserts.
If you expect a message while you’re at the concert, notify an usher. She or he will tell you what to do. You should silence any mobile phones or other electronic devices.
Modern concert halls are equipped to solve a variety of human mobility, hearing, and seeing problems. Tell the ushers what you need, and they’ll direct you to assistance. Some concerts offer childcare, so that your kids can play while you attend the concert.
