I my neck of the woods every stinking theater is posted, so's we usually wait until it's on the shelves for rent to see a new movie.
He's talking live theater. It has been my experience that such establishments either aren't posted or they do so in a very inconspicuous manner. Unlike movie theaters they don't have giant posters of rules plastered all about. They also don't draw the kind of clientèle that necessitate anti-social behavior rules to more easily facilitate ejections.
Back in 2005/2006 I was seeing a lot of shows at the Playhouse Square (Cleveland) venues because my sister in law was involved with them. I didn't carry back then due to the liquor license issue but honest to gosh if I didn't go half a dozen times before I finally noticed a prohibition etched in the glass on the doors from the garage. Not only that but it was placed in such a manner that if somebody was holding the door for you (very common) there's no way you'd even know there was something to look at if you examined the inside part of the door on your way in.
I haven't been down there in 10+ years so I have no idea what the current state is. My wife and daughter saw a show there late last year and in leafing through their program I didn't see any mention in the house rules section.
Never ask if you can carry at a non-posted place, but always ask why you cannot at one that is!
Just because they offer call ahead seating doesn't mean you call ahead for carry permission.
