Hey I was wondering if anyone has any new information on the rush for this show. I am planning on doing it tomorrow and wanted to know around what time should I get there and where are the seats usually located. I am going anyways and will report my findings. Thanks.

I went on Friday night, got my ticket at 6pm - D15 in the orchestra.

So it is just general rush? Whatever seats are available? Not front row or something like that?

I went on Friday at 6:30pm. B 22 and 24 in the mezz.

Let me try and answer these questions with the information that has been provided in this thread, Matt Rogers.

So it is just general rush? Yes, it is a general rush since people have reiterated that no student ID is required.

Whatever seats are available? Not front row or something like that? Since some people have been given orchestra seats and some have been given mezz, I think it's safe to say that it's not the front row but rather various available seats.

Good seat.

I rushed this show last Tuesday and got there around 930am. There were ten people already in line. Ten minutes later a lot more people showed up. I had no problem getting two tickets but this might change once the show opens. The tickets were partial view in the boxes and it really was partial view but the tickets were cheap so what can you do. Btw the show was fabulous.

rushed the show today. Got there at 10:15 and there were about 16-17 people in front of me and right after I got there, about 5 more arrived. Box office opened at noon (sunday hours), and by that time, there was probably 30 more people behind me in line.

I had no problem getting two tickets, they were partial view in the boxes. I think all the boxes were filled from rush tickets, but not sure how many more people after us got in or where their seats were located. Theater seemed pretty full!

I went last Wednesday a little after noon and had no problem getting a ticket for the matinee.

Posted by emilyfaye48 2013-04-05 21:36:11


Anyone tried this week? Would 930am still be fine for a two show day?

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by Kbradstein 2013-04-05 22:02:53


Emily,

Probably not. I rushed a few Sunday's ago and there was about 40 people by the time the box office opened. I would say maybe try getting there around 8:30, I've walked by the theater on a Saturday morning about a week ago and there were about 50 people at 9 45. It also depends how well they sold the rest of the theater(other than boxes) and if you want to see the mattine or evening.

We scored orchestra A 2 & 4 this afternoon for $37 each. They were marked "partial view" but were really not except when there was a crate onstage in front of us for one song in Act 2.

Would highly recommend this show. And until today we weren't even planning to see it. But then we lost the NEWSIES lottery and THE LAST FIVE YEARS had a long list, so we walked up to 45th St. Glad we did. I think we just saw a Tony winner!

Thanks for the info! What time would you say you got to the box office?

Posted by Broadway Local 2013-04-06 11:54:12


Maybe 6:15? However long it takes to walk from a 6pm lotto on 41st & 7th to 45th & 8th. But we did take a shortcut through the Hilton on 42nd.

Does anyone know if there's a set number of rush tickets for each performance or really whatever is left? Am hoping to rush this but won't wait around if I can count the amount of people in front of me will snap up all the available tickets Thanks.

We rushed on Sunday (when the box office opens at noon) and were the first people in line. The second person joined around 8am and the bulk of people showed up around 8:30am. They seem to give out a lot of tickets, but we didn't stay to see how far down the line they got.

Of course, now with 13 nominations..I would get there a little earlier.

Got there this morning at around 8:15. I was 11th in line and got two tickets rear box.

Do they offer standing room ?

I have never seen standing room at this theater. It's a pretty small theater.

I stood for "How to Succeed", so the theater definitely has it, but no idea if it is implemented for this show.

Any one rushed lately? Wondering if it has gotten much crazier since the Tony noms came out. Thanks!

Can you paste the Rush Report link for me? I'm not sure I know to what you're referring. I'm looking to go next week sometime and trying to get a grasp on timing. Thanks!

goto Broadway for broke people.com. they will give you all the rush and lottery policies.

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by wicked_mimi 2013-05-17 11:21:22


No I understand the policy. I can find that multiple places. I'm trying to find out roughly what time people are getting there prior to tbe box office opening and where they ended up in line and whatnot.

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by gchris11 2013-05-17 11:36:22


I was in the Pippin line yesterday at 5 am and there was a line starting at Kinky. so I would say get there before 6 am.

Broadway spotted.com rush report. is what you are looking for

Where are the rush seats for Kinky now? Iluvtheatertrash and I went during previews and he was able to get rush twice in the boxes. They were wonderful seats compared to the boxes at the Music Box.

The Hirschfeld could definitely accommodate standing room- I did it for Hair a few times.

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by theaterkid1015 2013-05-17 19:39:48


I was way far back in the line Wednesday morning, and when the representative announced they were out of rush seats, he also announced standing room. Not the most winning way of explaining it, but it seems they are selling standing room for the show.

Bumping this.

I plan on rushing Kinky on Sunday. How crazy has it been lately? What time should I get there to ensure that I will get a ticket? And SRO is still an option right? What time do they start selling those tickets?
Sorry I'm asking so many questions!

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by gchris11 2013-05-29 10:44:05


I would say if you are not in line by 6:30/ 7 am from what I have been seeing walking past the theater, you are not getting tickets. People start lining up at 5:00am!

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by Emmaloucbway 2013-06-02 20:04:22


If anyone's curious I rushed Kinky Boots today, and arrived in line at 7:30. I was about 7th in line and easily got a ticket. Orchestra Row E, partial view. Great seat. Loved the show. Also it was a Sunday so the box office opened two hours later than usual (12). It will probably get crazier after the Tony Awards.

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by KathyNYC2 2013-06-02 20:08:01


So that would mean when the box office opens at it's normal 10 am on every other day of the week, 5:30 a.m. would be about right.

I would be really surprised if they don't change to lottery soon.

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by stevenycguy 2013-06-03 00:00:11


Standing room is sold only when the show is sold out. Sometimes that occurs at 10am and other times it doesn't occur until 7:30pm.

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by macnyc 2013-06-07 12:08:47


I rushed today, in the pouring rain. I was late leaving the house because I figured no one else would show up. Wrong! I got there around 7:15 and was about 14th in line. (The first person on line arrived at 5:15.) A couple of people ahead of me were buying one ticket, but most were buying two. I'll be in the left box. The ticket is stamped partial view, so I'll see what that means.

I had been planning to wait on line for Comedy of Errors, but Kinky is a great plan B. I'm really happy to see it before the Tonys!

I've rushed twice for Kinky last week and never arrived that early... We rushed on Thursday and got there around a quater past 8 and were 13th and 14th in line. We got tickets in the left box. We tried again on Sunday and got to the theatre around nine and were 20th and 21st in line... Some guy at the stagedoor said they normally had 20-30 tickets. We were worried but decided to stay and buy normal tickets in the cheapest category if we didn't get rush tickets. This time they had 50 rush tickets for sale so we got tickets without problems, this time in the right box.
50 sounds like a lot and we were wondering where the rest of them are located (I counted 30 or so box seats) but as someone posted earlier they seem to sell orchestra seats as well.
The box seats are fine. They are slightly restricted as you have people in front of you blocking the view but it's not that bad. They are very close to the stage and worth the money.

I rushed today. I went to Pippin first, but there were already over 25 people in line at a little before 7, so I didn't want to take my chances. (The first people got there at 3 am, for anyone who's keeping tabs.) I got to the Hirschfeld around 7 am and was (I think) around 17th in line. I left right after I got my tickets, but there were probably over 30 people in line. Not sure how many tickets were sold. I got box seats, partial view.

Posted by macnyc 2013-06-08 09:17:32


If these are the "good" box seats, the ones at the Music Box must be really bad. I enjoyed the show a lot, and I'm really glad I endured the rain to get the tickets, but my seat was really awful. I think that SOME of the seats in the boxes are okay-to-good, but if you're not seated on the side of the stage, you are going to miss a lot. (The boxes have 14 seats each, arranged in two rows, except for a row with three seats.) I ended up standing for most of Act 1. Then, at intermission, my friend and I switched seats, and I could see better (the view was still obstructed). The advantage is that you are close to the action.

It's a fun fun show, very well staged, with some powerful performances. Annaleigh's is among them! She really brought it. Amazing! I know I will enjoy the Tony broadcast more now that I have seen Kinky, and I think it has a great shot at picking up some major awards.

My box seat was a perfect view- not obstructed at all. I was in the seat closest to the orchestra, 2nd row.

Posted by macnyc 2013-06-08 11:44:27


^^^ Yes, those seats were great. I should have gotten on line a bit earlier!

Posted by ClumsyDude15 2013-06-11 01:22:27


So, I was considering rushing today to be at the first-post Tony win performance, but I'm apprehensive because a quick check to Telecharge shows that the show is completely sold out.

Do you think rush would still be sold if it's a sold out performance or would they simply sell standing room?

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by gchris11 2013-06-11 01:27:24


They sell rush tickets everyday!!!

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by ClumsyDude15 2013-06-11 01:29:44


I know they sell rush every day, but I wasn't quite sure if the producers would have decided to sell those seats full price rather than using them for the rush for this day in specific.

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by gchris11 2013-06-11 01:34:59


I don't think they would want to piss off the fans by doing that. They had rush on Tony day.

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by ClumsyDude15 2013-06-11 01:49:16


That's very true. I suppose I was just apprehensive over nothing.

Kinky Boots Rush Policy?
Posted by gchris11 2013-06-11 01:53:42


I would get there early. I have seen people lining up starting at 4 am. Tony day people didn't start lining up until about 6 am, but the box office opens at 12 on Sundays. So 4 am would be about right and I would say no later than about 6, 6:30.

I'm so excited. I have a friend here from out of town and we got tickets for tonight over a month ago. What great timing to see KB again..

Anyone think that the rush is going to be replaced by a lottery soon?

Kathy, don't ask the lottery switch question. You'll bring down the wrath of gchris.
