Wow, what a steal! I wish I could take you up on that!
If you can't sell it, the box office at the ART is fantastic about exchanges. There are a lot of seats left for the run, and it's very likely they'll find you something you'll be happy with (though probably not front row).
Protip: if you're a student with a valid ID, you can order "best available" seats for $25 plus $5 facility fee over the phone. They always check ID and validity at the BO upon pickup. The people at the BO there go out of their way to get you the best seats they can. :)
I recently saw a production of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" In Boston. It was at the Lyric, which is a tiny space, and I was very close to the performance floor, center. The set contained a lot of books on bookshelves against the rear wall. At some point during the final scenes, I noticed that the shelves remained but all the books had disappeared. I have no idea how they managed to wheel something off or onstage in the middle of Act III without calling attention to it
It's definitely NOT a thing if more than 2 total tickets are being purchased! Switching out is cool, or meeting a friend on line IF it doesn't impact the people behind you is cool, but it's definitely not okay to save spots for people to cut the line. (It's one thing if someone is running a little bit behind and you inform whoever is behind you, or someone leaves for 15m to bring back food or get coffee, but what you're describing is not cool.)
It closes 1/8/17, but I entered the "Falsettos" lottery for 2 Sat performances and a Sunday performance (all for the same weekend) and won twice. Great front-mezz seats. I wish undo up going twice because I loved it so much!
You can blow $40 on two drinks in Manhattan if you're a civilized tipper. Would it be lovely if rush were still $20? Sure. But I'm extremely grateful that most Broadway shows can be seen for $30-40, and as said before, Off-Broadway rush prices average even lower. Grateful, grateful, grateful, is the word of the day on $40 Rush prices for a Broadway show! Ditto for TDF, TodayTix, AudienceRewards, etc. For the great blessing a theatrical experience can bring into my life, $40, while not
There are partials that do not show up on Telecharge that may affect the SRO situation. I got SRO on Saturday morning12/10 for the evening show. (Arrived at 9:20 am.) There was a single partial ticket left unsold (despite Telecharge stating that the show was sold out for that performance), but the BO sold SRO anyway since it was just a single partial. If there are additional partials unsold for future performances, they may not sell SRO until those are gone.
Her husband, Jason Danieley, has said that fans can leave pictures of sunflowers or pictures of themselves wearing teal (the Ovarian Cancer Awareness color) on Marin's Facebook page to show support and bring cheer. Truly, miss Mazzie is a goddess. I was lucky enough to meet her at the SD of "n2n." She signed my "Passion" DVD insert and could not have been more classy or lovely.
Rushed 2 weeks ago (a Saturday). Arrived at 6:30. 8th in line. Was able to choose the box seat: left front box (house left) gives the best view, IMHO. $35, cash or credit. By the time the B.O. opened, there were about 50 people in line. The gentleman in the box office was awesome.
