WeShowUp at Mixed Blood


Mixed Blood introduced Radical Hospitality in 2011, becoming the first theatre to offer no cost admission to every performance. Over the years, Radical Hospitality has evolved from simply no cost admission into a core value prioritizing accessibility, welcoming, and inclusivity. As a result, we are proud to announce that we are working with “WeShowUp”, a new way for audience members to reserve attendance to performances.

In the past, the only way to guarantee admission was to reserve online for a fee and attendance through Radical Hospitality had to be done in person two hours before the performance. Now, audiences can reserve for no fee, via “WeShowUp”.

Line of People Lined Up Outside the Firehouse

Our goal is to avoid patrons needing to line up at the Firehouse for no cost admission 2 hours before the show.


WeShowUp allows patrons to reserve attendance to virtual and in-person events for no fee. After the event, patrons will receive an email/text message asking them to indicate what dollar amount they would like to pay for their experience. Rather than paying a set dollar amount (such as $35) before attending, patrons now have the ability to decide what value they would attach to the event afterwards. For in-person events, patrons will be charged a small “no-show” fee if they do not show up. This will allow us to ensure that we have an accurate sense of attendance.


We will list our events both on our website and on WeShowUp.io. Patrons will need to set up an account with WeShowUp the first time they visit, but after that can reserve with two clicks. Note: It is important that you opt in for future communications from us. This is how we will send important information regarding attendance and performance reminders.
