This year, there will be a "Heineken Green Zone" from Pier 17 Founding Partner Heineken, that'll give ticketholders a reserved viewing area right in front of the stage with access to dedicated concessions. Other Pier 17 Founding Partners—Chase, Lincoln and Pepsi—will also have activations throughout the season on The Rooftop at Pier 17 and throughout the Seaport.

Of course, the Seaport District is home to some of the best restaurants and bars, so before or after you see a show, you can imbibe and enjoy a good dinner at places like Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s seafood restaurant, The Fulton; David Chang’s Momofuku Ssäm Bar; Helene Henderson’s Malibu Farm; and this summer's newest additions, Andrew Carmellini's Italian chophouse Carne Mare and NoHo Hospitality's Mister Dips.
