Congrats on winning! I want to say it really depends - they say the person who bought the ticket needs to physically pick them up. It probably depends who specifically is at the box office that day and if they are being strict.
I had standing room from the lottery which was actually an excellent view. Another time I won the lottery I was front row orchestra on the left side. You don’t get a great view of the whole set from that close but you do get to see every last twitch, wrinkle, and

Was wondering if anyone can give some info on the Beetlejuice standing room - assuming they only start selling if show is sold out? Saw a few people mention on these boards that they start selling around 6pm. Anyone know how many standing room spots they have? Also more importantly, is the view good? Not sure if the top of the stage would be cut off or not. Are central standing room spots significantly better than the sides?
Pretty much I’ve seen it via lottery and my seat was partial
Shamoney said: "Zach was good? A lot of videos I have seen of him he seems very soft spoken and quiet, not powerful. How does he compare to Michael lee brown( was that his name)? He is good though?"
I never saw Michael Lee Brown but wow I thought Zach was phenomenal. He was a bit soft spoken at times but it felt appropriate. He was a very emotional actor and when he belted out (both while acting and while singing) it felt so powerful, especially compared to his

I won a few years ago and was placed in the last row of the mezzanine directly in the center - it was honestly one of the best views I though cause I got to see everything, no obstructions, and got to take in the entire production without being too close and focused on one particular part. Good luck, hope you enjoy it! It’s a classic and beautifully done!

Won the lottery for tomorrow evening - will report back on who is playing Evan. Was looking forward to seeing Jordan but glad to hear Zach is great too if Jordan continues to be out! Taking a friend who’s never seen it so want her to have an amazing experience with a great Evan! Everyone I’ve seen in the past has been fantastic (Ben Platt, Noah Galvin, and Andrew Barth Feldman) so I guess you can’t go toooo wrong!

They had 41 tickets which the girl doing the lottery said neverrr happens. Usually between 10-14 tickets are awarded. I’m sure Wednesday matinees are usually less but additional to that it’s also freezing out today and it’s during Glick’s run which I’m sure had something to do with it.

Thanks yes email notifications are on. Oh didn’t realize it was till 4pm, that’s helpful. I once won a lottery after standby (forget which show) but had 12 minutes to claim! Was hoping this wasn’t something similar.

Was just wondering if anyone who was placed on the standby was notified whether they won or lost yet. I got the notification that Im on standby yesterday at 8am and have been refreshing the broadway direct lottery page like every 10-15 minutes. Still just says standby. Im getting tired or refreshing a million times per day yet dont want to find out I won and then missed the opportunity to claim the tickets. I play lotteries all the time and usually with standby they tell you within a few hours.

So finallyyy saw Little Shop on Saturday!! I really loved it. I hadn’t seen the movie or broadway production in MANY years so not sure if it was the nostalgia of seeing/hearing it again or not, but I found myself smiling the entire time.
As I said in previous posts, I brought my brother who had never seen the move/show and didn’t know the story. He really liked it, but his first thoughts after it ended was, “wow that was a weird story” lol. I honestly forgot how nonsensical the story is

Interested in hearing thoughts from people who have never seen the movie or show in the past and are coming in totally blind. (I know that’s probably not many people haha)
I’m super excited to see this in about a week and a half (have seen the movie and broadway version many many years ago). I’m bringing my older brother who, for reasons unknown, has never seen it and knows almost nothing about the story. I see a lot of mixed reviews on here, and unfortunately most seem to lean in the n

Not sure if there’s another thread for it, but would LOVE to hear how the Pasadena version goes in the next coming days/weeks! I have a ticket to LA and for the show in mid-October and can’t wait!!!

Hey how did you get a $10 ticket to Scotland, PA?

Agreed with the above poster. What shows are you specifically trying to see?
From my experience, I can tell you I have essentially never bought a ticket in advance and always do rush/lottery/standing room. The only thing is that they typically aren’t great seats - often times partial view or if not than extreme sides which may as well be partial view. Every now and then stub hub has some good prices too, especially close to show time. TKTS sounds like a great option for you depending o
RippedMan said: "Cheap seats on StubHub, just not sure the view from the Balcony is worth it?"
I had the opportunity to see this show a few months ago for veryyy cheap in the balcony. It’s an interesting view. You’re essentially watching it from a birds eye view, but I thought it sort of added to the experience. I’m sure the view isn’t soooo much better from orchestra or mezzanine but if price is an issue and you have an opportunity to see it
yanks02 said: "Has anyone rushed this show recently? I'm traveling to NYC this weekend and wanted to see this. Any input on arrival time and rush seat locations? Thanks!"
I got my ticket through the lottery (and moved my seat during intermission to more center) - the person sitting next to me when I had moved my seat said she did the lottery and was placed in orchestra row G last seat on the right. She said the view wasn’t too great and was happy she moved

will be joining you tonight, I won as well!! Can’t wait to see where the seats are located. Will report back!
Edit: got orchestra row C seat 16 - essentially second seat in all the way house right. It was an okay seat. Could see the actors fine but the right half of the stage was sort of obstructed. Not

Can’t speak exactly for how it is since the new cast members just started, but I would imagine 4-5am is way too early for this show. We saw it a few days before this new cast change and arrived at 10:05am and got 2 tickets easily. Granted I think arriving that late for this new cast is probably too late. I would assume like 7-8 would be fine. Someone correct me if I’m wrong though, maybe this new cast is generating much more interest
