Is there a lottery or a rush line? I saw different information of different websites and there seems to be nothing about it on the official website. Has anyone done it recently? Thanks!

There is a rush now. It was switched from a lotto to a rush. $40 cash when the box office opens.

From the official website:

I did the rush during Jane's first full week in the show- I got at the box office at 2:00 and they still had rush tickets. I got two and they were the front side seats that are raised. View was AWSOME!!! Much better then the regular front row seats which are soo much lower then the stage. Nothing was missed from my view at all. They were perfect!

Are the rush seats always the raised seats on the side?

And about what time should one get there in the morning? Is this a busy rush?

No, they are also the front row. I'm 6'3 and the stage was still high for even me. The feet are cut off. But for $40, wasn't a big deal for me. Saturday, before Tony's I got there at 9:00. I was the second person in line. Even the employees were telling me and the girl in front of me, to leave and come back at 10:00. But we were enjoying each other's conversation, so we just stayed. About 9:30, the line started growing. Can't say how many tickets they sell.

I think they sell about 18-20 seats for rush as a rule but occasionally less.
