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.
"Duck Soup" "A Night in Casablacca," and "A Day at the Races" are wonderful Marx Brothers films, too! "A Night at the Opera" is probably my favorite, but every film has at least a few priceless moments.
It would be fascinating to see that happen. I've had dozens of experiences in which changing seat location vastly altered my perception/experience of a show. With "The Humans," I could have chosen a full-view seat in the rear mezz, but opted for front orch partials because I prefer to be up close, even if I sacrifice seeing some action. I think $30 was a fair price for my seat. If I'd paid $67 (or whatever FV is), I'd have been disappointed with the value.
