I do not see an rush policies listed on reliable sites, BUT came across this "Special Offer" listed on the official telecharge.com page for purchasing tickets. Do you know if this information is correct? Has anyone went to the TKTS booth for the 30% off tickets that were posted the last two days?

Student Rush: $27.00 - Available at the Box Office only beginning 2 hours prior to the performance - Limit 2 tickets per valid ID - Subject to availability.

Yeah the box office told me about this yesterday. The seats are rear mezz and only on certain days, depending on availability, the guy said.

Thank you very much for you're reply. Did you see the show yet? I was entertaining on going Friday or Saturday but was going to buy a $150 Orchestra seat before I saw the student rush tickets. I would usually always try rush first, but because of the limited engagement and high demand I'm not sure if I should just fork up the money. Hmm.

Update: Yesterday I went to the theatre at 4:30pm so I would make sure I got a $27 Student Rush ticket. The box office had to wait to get the official word that S.Rush tickets would be offered that night. Then at 5:30pm he said they had got permission and I purchased a ticket. There was only 1 other person online at the time. The show was AMAZING, and the seat (last row mezz) was not bad at all. Surprisingly a good section of the rear Mezz was empty that night.

So my advice if you want to try for the $27 tix (usually $67) is check online that day to make sure there is seats available in the last row rear mezz and then get to the box office (a little more) then two hours before the show.

Has anyone else tried this recently? Has it gotten more popular? Was hoping to try in the last few weeks here.
