  • Oh Hello Rush  Jan 19 2017, 05:41:26 PM

    I did this past Saturday and got there at 7 and was 10th on the line. I'd expect even more since it's the last weekend. I got tickets for the 2pm no problem but they labeled them as partial view, front row of the balcony. I had no issues seeing since most of the show doesn't take place on the edge of the stage anyway. 

    By 8am the line was quite long already, I'm not sure if any of those people got tickets or not.

    I thought this was going to be a play about celebs who have insulted Broadway lol 

  • Worth trying to change my Oh Hello ticket?  Jan 15 2017, 12:05:16 AM

    I rushed the show today and was told the same thing about sitting up straight from the lady at the box office. It was side balcony front row and I had no issues seeing over it because most of the show is them in the middle of the stage anyway. My only complaint is the leg room is horrible, after an hour in I couldn't wait to stand up. The show was great though, just go enjoy it. 

  • Oh Hello Rush  Jan 14 2017, 10:34:25 AM

    Thanks for the info, I got the balcony front row obstructed view seats as well,  the lady at the box office told me to just sit up straight and its fine. 

    I got there around 7am and was maybe 10th in line. I'm not sure how many tickets people in front of me were getting or for which show but I wanted the 2pm show and got it no problem. If you're going to try this next weekend I wouldn't get there much later then 7am cause once 8am rolled around the line was pretty

  • Oh Hello Rush  Jan 14 2017, 08:25:33 AM

    I know it varies per show but what number were you in line? How badly obstructed was the view? I think I have an ok shot this morning since there are 2 shows. 

  • Oh Hello Rush  Jan 14 2017, 08:06:21 AM

    Rush tickets are $59 now

    If you aren't in line already I don't think you will get any. There are already 30 people in line.

    JudyDenmark -  how did you end up doing today? 

  • Oh Hello rush  Jan 10 2017, 03:15:29 PM

    Please post how ya end up doing. I'm probably going to end up rushing this soon as well.

    I only had to enter that code for the ticketmaster shows, all the telecharge ones did it automatically when I clicked the links 

  • Broadway Week 2017  Jan 5 2017, 01:13:52 PM

    Dear Evan Hansen and Oh Hello are now updated to say sold out. 

  • Broadway Week 2017  Jan 5 2017, 12:02:11 PM

    You don't have to enter anything for the telecharge shows. Just click on the links for the show here and it should work, it did for me on mobile and a pc

    Not sure if you can use this but since you want to see Jitney if you or someone you know is 30 or younger you can sign up for the Manhattan theatre clubs 30 for 30 program, it's free and you only need 1 person to be 30

  • Broadway Week 2017  Jan 5 2017, 11:42:33 AM

    The telecharge website is even worse then normal with all the traffic. Dear Evan Hansen only had 3 eligible dates so that's probably why nothing is showing up. 

    I did grab seats for great comet. They were 53 each in the rear mezzanine after fees. Normally these would be 79 each plus fees unless you go to the box office but I grabbed them because the cheapest tickets available are 59 each. I didn't want to spend a lot on this show but wanted to see Groban and didn&

  • IN TRANSIT Previews  Dec 29 2016, 12:49:41 PM

    I saw this last night and there were people in the standing room spots as well. 

    I hated the cliches in this show as well. The whole Texas gun touting bible thumping nonsense was just as cringe worthy as the other situations I'm the show people mentioned here. I didn't hate it though, it was too laughably bad to really hate. 

  • Broadway Grosses: Week Ending 12/25/16  Dec 28 2016, 09:50:34 AM

    My only guess is that maybe the producers of in transit think that they will get some increased numbers from all the shows closing. There are 13 shows closing from now until the end of January and only 2 new ones opening so I think that will be  only 20 shows open by the end of January. Now I don't believe that will actually make any difference for this show  even though I haven't seen it yet (I'm seeing it tonight) but maybe that's what the producers are thinking?

    Sometimes you have to do things for your job that you don't like nor agree with. I think many of us here have done that and if you haven't had then consider yourself lucky. I'm sure it sucks for the ones who really don't want to be there but they have to look at the bigger picture for their own careers. They would be silly to risk their jobs over one day considering this job is  probably something they have dreamed of doing since they were little kids. 

  • August Wilson Will Call Policy?  Dec 20 2016, 04:14:54 PM

    I've lived here all my life and never had any issues. I also keep my wallet in my front pocket but that's for comfort not safety. 

    I never have more then 50 bucks cash on me because I only use credit cards, earn free cash every month and pay it right off. It's way easier plus if I actually did get mugged I would just give them my wallet if I had to and go and cancel the credit cards. Sure it would be a pain to replace them but it's bet

    Thank you. I didn't mean the weight of the card, I meant security/safety. I don't like carrying a credit card while walking through the city all day before the show, especially at such a crowded time of year.

  • A strike by Arts on Jan. 20?  Dec 18 2016, 12:31:46 PM

    Jane2 said: "It's legend that the GOP is not in favor of supporting the arts in general. I keep remembering Giuliani's campaign to ban the art of Ifili.

    And so what if it is political? Should the anti Trump rallies not have taken place? Should we just stand by and stifle ourselves?


     

    "

    Because I'm sure that if you include all the people who work in the arts that some might not agree, whether they admit it or not. 

  • A strike by Arts on Jan. 20?  Dec 18 2016, 12:59:38 AM

    I think some people are just sick of hearing about politics, I know I am. 

     

    I don't know what Broadway shows would actually participate on this but I'm sure not every single person, actors / stage hands / theatre crew all voted for the same person anyway. 

     

    Also almost all of the shows on Broadway right now have nothing to do with politics anyway, what would Wicked and the Lion King, etc etc etc have any reason to do this.
