Sorry to be that person but has anyone tried the rush for today? I'm debating whether or not to go down there and try for a ticket.

I'm also hoping to rush for the Wednesday matinee so if anyone did it for today's performance and can give some insight it would be much appreciated! Very excited to hear how tonight goes.

Unfortunately I won’t be back in the city until the beginning of May, so I’m thrilled to hear how the show goes!
What a colossal piece of crap! It'll probably run for years.

add me to the list of those excited to hear the reports! I'm seeing this at the end of the month (and bringing my students) so I have high hopes.

I stopped by the box office today to ask about rush tickets around 1:30 and the guy said they were all gone first thing this morning.

Because it's a great show with Webber's best score by far.

No reason to fear Roger is more than up to, and the reason she is just how differently she plays the role than LuPone. If she was trying to be LuPone as Evita that would be a different matter entirely.

At Wednesday evening and Saturday matinee performances, the role of Eva Perón will be performed by Christina DeCicco (Glinda in Wicked, Sister Act), with the exception of Wed. March 14 and Wed. April 4, when Elena Roger will play both matinee and evening performances. Beginning April 10, 2012, Tuesday performances will start at 7:00PM. Beginning September 2012, the performance schedule is Tuesday at 7:00PM, Wednesday–Sunday at 8:00PM, with matinee performances on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2:00PM, and Sundays at 3:00 PM. Christina DeCicco will then perform the role of Eva during Wednesday and Saturday matinees.

A picture of the set from curtain call surfaced on Twitter. Looks great. https://twitter.com/#!/4GlobalWellness/status/179400557981736962/photo/1
