Always Plenty of Light at the Starlight All Night Diner

A world premiere queer love story, where the end of the world is just the beginning.

When an asteroid threatens the earth, the logical escape is your favorite diner, especially when that diner just might be a Time Machine.

Always Plenty of Light… is an adventure story about finding hope and connection in the face of insurmountable odds. A cross between Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, and Fried Green Tomatoes.

Starring Leah StrasserLormarev JonesMaggie Cramer, and Michael Burnham, and directed by Alice Flanders.

Know Theatre strives to structure our ticket pricing in a way that makes theatre accessible to everyone who wants to see a show. And we’re switching to a new online box office that makes it easier than ever to manage tickets on your own time, outside of our normal box office hours.

We’re a 99 seat theatre with general admission seating. Our lobby bar opens one hour before show time so come have a drink with us! We open the doors to the theatre about ten minutes before curtain.

Here’s the breakdown of our ticket prices.

Mainstage Tickets: $25

Guarantee a reserved seat for most of our Mainstage Productions for just a couple bucks more than it would cost to see a 3D Imax Showing of Godzilla. Added bonus: our popcorn is cheaper!

Rush Tickets: $15

If you’re short on funds, arrive an hour before show time to get on our waiting list. If there’s a seat available 10 minutes before the show starts, we’ll sell you a ticket for $15. Just promise us that if you like the show, you’ll tell fifteen friends.

6 ticket Flex-pass: $110

For the frugally minded who want to plan ahead: you can get a flex pass that allows you to reserve seats for performances at the low-low price of $18.33 a ticket. Such deal! So much wow.

Membership: $250/year

Gets you access to every show produced by the Know (excluding Fringe) plus great benefits like priority seating, bar discounts, behind-the-scenes events, and more.
