Sorry for starting another rush thread, but has anyone done this one lately? BroadwaySpotted says 22 in line by 9:35 on weekends, but it doesn't say what time folks start lining up. Any recent experiences to share? Thanks!

A friend did this last Saturday. She was 9th in line when she arrived at 7:30 AM. Our seats were one off the aisle in AA center house right.

In case anyone is interested: we arrived at 7:20 and were about 10th in line. We were given partial view box seats. It was brutally cold, and people were poppin in and out of the line to do coffee runs, which no one minded or made a fuss about.

I'm guessing the whole front row is saved for rush? I know when I bought a January ticket a while back, all of row BB was available, but no AA.
Now t/d/b/a haterobics on here.

Sounds like the word is out and it's getting tougher by the week. I rushed the Wed matinee last week, got there at 9 and was 12th in line. Got first row orchestra left. Terrific seat.

I don't think the first two rows are saved for rush any more. We were 10th in line when we arrived, but two people in front of us left because they realized they were rushing the wrong show, and six of the people ahead of us were only getting one ticket. This would have gotten us to the window as the 11th and 12th tickets sold as rush that day, and my math told me we should have been in the front or second row. So When I asked the box office worker why we were in a Partial View box when it was advertised that rush was the first two rows, he simply said "those all sold, and this is what's left." I don't know if he meant they were all sold as rush (doubtful, given the numbers) or if they were released for general sale, and I didn't stay to interrogate the guy.

There were about 40 people in line by the time the box office opened. It had been brutally cold that morning and we didn't stay to see how many people got tickets.

I sat in the frontmost box in the seat closest to the stage and had an incredibly lovely view, but the folks behind me and in the other boxes likely had a more obstructed view experience.

It was a great production. Good luck, all!
