Seat was Orchestra row F far right aisle partial view. I missed a couple of acrobatic moments, but it was a great seat to see the Leading Player. I think standing room will be fine.

Then the box office is really screwed up because at 6pm they said they had no rush policy.

Okie, I was in E18, were you right behind me? Famebroadway, I would guess there was a lot of confusion, first night and all, and the ticket seller probably been told there wasn't a rush, since the place was pretty packed. I got my ticket about 7:15 or so. The tiny bit of action I missed was more than made up for by being so close to the actors, for me it was a great seat and an incredible deal.

April Saul, seat F20.. right behind you.
FameBroadway: Yes there was confusion at the box office. I stopped by earlier around 2:15 and was told no rush, no standing room. I was prepared to pay full price for a ticket. Got to the box office around 7:20 as they put up the standing room sign. Pleasant surprise. Ticket guy told me he had general rush for $37. Of course I grabbed it. Great deal, fantastic show!

Not anymore -- most of the new shows are in the $35 -40 range.

I went yesterday around 1pm and asked "do you have a rush policy," and the guy shook his head no. I said "so it doesn't exist, or you don't have any left?" and he shook his head again, said "no."

I guess until they officially announce a policy, it depends which d!ckhead is working at the box office.

Wow, Miles...I'm sorry if I helped convince you to try for it, that would be so frustrating. The Matilda box office was just as much of a mess at this point in previews.

If they're not selling these partial-view tickets in Rows E and F as rush, I wonder what they're charging for them.

I went by the box office right after it opened yesterday afternoon and was told that they hadn't started selling rush tickets yet. I thought this was weird, especially after seeing that others on this board had gotten them. A friend of mine asked around 5pm and was told to come back by in an hour--that they would have more information then. He and I stood in line behind three others starting at 5:30 and a crowd of at least 30-45 people joined the line behind us.

At 6:30, the house was open and they still hadn't started selling rush tickets. It was probably 6:45 before the door manager started sending people one at a time to get them. $37 each, 1 ticket per person. Cash or credit. The three people who were in front of me were seated where I was (Row B and C in the far left orchestra) and my friend was seated in Row C in the far right orchestra. Apparently, only 15 tickets or so were given out.

The show is phenomenal, by the way. Try to see this one soon--as soon as it's open, I have a feeling that the rush lines are only going to get longer.

Does anyone know how it's been the past couple of days? Has there been a line in the morning and how many are they giving out? Are they also adhering to the one ticket per person policy?

Rushed this AM, ended up buying discount seats because the rush were very obstructed view, but the tickets for the matinee were gone by 8:45 and the night show by 9 at the latest. Really long line. And whoever is running the box office is kind of inept, because they hadn't finished selling the 40 (20 for each show) tickets by 10:30.

The boxes, a friend said it wouldn't be worth it for what you'd miss so we paid the extra 20$ to get a center seat in the mezz.

Thanks. The boxes at the Hirschfeld for Kinky Boots were great, I was wondering what the Pippin boxes were like.

Kelly2, did you mean that there were enough people in line at 8:45a and 9a that by 10a they were the ones who got tickets?

for those who have not seen the show, I would not discount those boxes! Especially for the few surprises that happen there. All I am saying is that I would very much like to sit in one at some point. I will definitely try this rush, maybe this weekend.

Yes djoko, that's what I mean. And I was relating info I got from someone working on the show. I don't have firsthand experience. Maybe repeat attenders would appreciate "surprises" but I'd like a good view of the entire show.
