Does anyone know how it's been lately? I missed my first train, so I won't be getting into the city until around 1. Do I still have a chance at getting rush tickets for tonight? Or alternatively, are there any other rushes on or off broadway that would still have tickets? I know there are lottery options too.

So many questions, I know, but thank you for your help!

Your chances look pretty good to get a ticket according to the rush report. I've walked into less popular shows at 3PM and have gotten a rush ticket. Good luck!

Other shows that are reporting slow rushes are All the Way, Beautiful, Casa Valentina, Cinderella, Mmama Mia, Mothers and Sons, and Rock of Ages. Let me know what you see!

I don't know if this has changed, but when I saw the show in mid-March, I was told that all rush tickets were partial view.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

I rushed this past Saturday and got to the box office at 10:30. The woman said they had sold all rush for the evening, but had two tickets left for the matinee, which were partial view. I gladly took them!

When we were at the theater, however, only the right boxes (where I was seated) were sold, so I believe they could have sold more rush tickets for the left boxes. Right before curtain, the house manager came over to me and asked if we would like to move to some empty seats in the mezzanine, which was very kind and we were glad we moved! While the seats aren't horribly "partial," you would definitely miss some of the scenes between Michael C. Hall and Marisa Tomei.

I got there about 11:15 Saturday and got a ticket for the matinee. It was second row center mezzanine. Pretty great!

I was in the first row of the balcony all the way on the right side seat 22. I know that seat 24 was also a rush seat and it was never filled.

other than that the balcony was full.
