The Kimmel Center is spicing things up. As of Nov. 7, almost all shows taking place in the Kimmel Center’s SEI Innovation Studio will be BYOB. The shows chosen for the new initiative will be inventive and edgy, with lower ticket prices.

Here are the BYO details: A six-pack of beer or a 750ml bottle of wine can be brought to the theater. No liquor or open containers will be permitted. There's a limit of one bottle of wine or one six-pack per two patrons. Ice, cups and corking service will be available at no cost.

The BYOB shows include:

Dec. 1-3: "The Outer Space"
Jan. 15-16: The Jones Family Singers
Feb. 9-11: "Ryan Raftery is the Most Powerful Woman in Fashion – The Anna Wintour Musical"
