Can't yet find any information on rush for BEAUTIFUL, don't know if I'm not looking hard enough or it's just not out there. Anyone have any insight?

Great. Was hoping to plan a rush this weekend but I guess I'll have to wait!

Yeah these rush prices are getting out of hand. Especially for a show that I don't think will even do that well.

Greed...so shameful. Kinky Boots which is a SMASH HIT isn't even 40 dollars.

Isn't every rush pretty much between $35 and 40$ now? Unfortunately, seems to be the new normal. :

KINKY BOOTS is also a lottery now. They are generally cheaper.

Glass Menagerie is $37, Kinky is $37, Gentleman's Guide is $35, Annie is $40, Chicago is $37, Once is $35, Pippin is $37, and Spiderman is $40.

Before we get hyperbolic about these prices, I wanted to point out that $40 is pretty much standard rush price now. So...yeah, it stinks that the days of $20 tickets are gone, but this isn't really a surprise.

Well Spider-Man and Annie are closing. So other than those 2 the others are HITS and not 40.

StickIt: Yeah, Book of Mormon pretty much remains the exception ($27 SRO, $32 lotto).

Thanks for the Beautiful rush info, though!

I think MTC's rush is $25, isn't it? But yeah, that's clearly not the norm anymore.

In general (I know no one can say about Beautiful), how does rush work on two-show days? Does the box office sell rush for both shows at the same time, in the morning, when the box office opens? Or does it vary?

I think it depends on the show.

I've never encountered a rush that didn't sell both shows when the box office opened. I think that's pretty standard.

There are actually many shows that sell rush tickets "two hours before curtain" rather than both matinee and evening at the same time. I agree that selling both shows when the box office opens is most often the case, but I have encountered quite a few with the "two hours before" policy.

I hate this price as much as everyone, but until we all stop paying it, they will keep raising it.

And from everything I read, they think this is going to be a pretty big hit.

I would think that since it says they're available "day-of," they'll be selling both shows when the box office opens on a two-show day.

I agree $40 is ridiculous.

What's so funny (to me) about our outrage at the $40 price, myself included, is that it's only because it hits the $40 threshold! I had no problem paying $37 for a countless number of shows, but going into the 4's makes the price appear much steeper!

$40 is closer to $50 than it is to $20.
