It doesn’t appear to be up anymore. But it showed the plant singing supper time."
Do you know who’s account the clips are on? I did a quick search and can’t find an account for the theatre itself.
Moulin Rouge! Lottery Experience Sep 16
2019, 11:02:20 AM
I won the lottery for last night’s show (Sun 9/15 7pm). Mezz C24/26. As noted, The elephant trunk obstructed the view sometimes, but usually only blocking a single actor with minor action on stage left. My friend and I leaned each other’s way to get a better view when necessary. For the price, it’s a good seat!
GreasedLightning said: " This has me curious. When I purchased my West SideStoryticket at the box office a few weeks ago, the box office staff asked me for my phone number and email address “in case of any seating or theater changes.”I can’t recall that ever happening to me before when making a purchase in person at the box office so I do have to wonder If it has been planned all along ...”
No need to read anything into that statement- I&rsquo
I just left the box office, and the agent says that there will be some sort of last-minute tickets. They were told that it will be $29, 2 hours before the show. She does not know if it’s going to be rush or lottery quite yet. Exciting news!

I just did a range search on the Telecharge website for the entire month of December and am still seeing some $119 tickets for sale onseveral different dates. Usually the back few rows. I was able to be flexible with the dates when I was searching
Bettyboy72 said: "Anyone know how the first row of dress circle extreme sides (last two seats on each side would be). I can't afford orchestra. Those pairs are what is left on first row dress circle. If so, which side is better, if you know. Thanks."
Ive been on the extreme side up in the balcony, so at a similar angle. If you have a choice, take the house left seats. Jake stays just off center, so no problems with this monologue. Tom moves around the stage but d

I was there last night as well and didn’t win either, but my only dislike was having to stand as long as we did. I thought it was very well executed- I’m still amazed how 1,000 people stayed silent for an hour+ LOL.
As far as it getting dark, even they made a joke about it. By 40 min in, I knew my number by heart, did you really need light?
oldfriends said: "So how does the lotto work? Once you hear your lotto number called, you go up and give them your ticket and then they give you your pair of tickets? Or do you need to verify with your Patron ID? My wife and I are waiting, and we got our two tickets mixed up - we don’t know which Patron ID belongs to which lotto number. Are we screwed?"
You’ll be fine - just let them know your tickets got mixed up. I got here just before the cutoff, so th

That’s awesome! Late wave over to you :)
I agree - those box seats looked terrible. The folks in them on my side kept trying to lean over to see! One left during the show and never came back - I wonder if they left completely or maybe got a spot in the SRO area.
Was there a bar on your side like the one on mine?
ArtMan said: "CarmenA3, I'm glad that bar didn't distract your view. It would have drove me crazy. I know I would have fixated on it."
I thought it would bug me too (and it was hard to capture the right angle in pics), but even at 5’2”, the bar was more out of the way than it appears in the pic. So anyone even an inch taller won’t have a problem :)

Thanks for the in-person info. I’ve been curious about it, but since I’ve been able to get the Todaytix rush (with a mix of Dress Circle/Balcony spots) I haven’t bothered to go down there. If those seats are Orchestra, I may giv
ND_2000: So sorry you had to see that, it was totally uncalled for on his part. Based on his behavior, I have a feeling that this is his M.O. Get super aggressive and loud so that people are intimidated and cave in. I feel terrible for the ticket agent!
Rush line drama always makes me so uncomfortable - true, there are no "written in stone" rules and you never know who you're getting into a disagreement with, but I wish everyone would behave properly. Didn't their par
