anyone know how early you need to get there to ensure a seat?

I would say an hour before the show.

you think an hour is sufficient? great, thanks very much!

I was there last night at 7, and there were empty seats. That was my basis for my response. However, the popularity of a particular program could be a factor so bear that in mind. If you really want to ensure a seat, be there much earlier.
