Why didn't someone think about scheduling a 2nd show?
Tickets have only been on sale for a week and they're almost sold out!
Doesn't seem fair.

We would love to have Brian Greene here for another night, but unfortunately he's off to another location the next day. We still have tickets left, so you have time to get to this event. Subscriptions have actually been on sale since November, and individual tickets for this event have been on sale since the beginning of January.
