It's definitely possible, I've done this sort of trip many times now and have done it in May and June, although the rush lines did seem a lot quieter than trips I've done in the past, and New York in general was a lot quieter than I'm used to.
I feel though that this time there wasn't really any hot hot tickets, and so the rush lines were quieter.

I rushed for Tuesday nights show (26/3) and was 4th in line at about 8:20. Only another 5 or so behind me when box office opened, could easily have rocked up at 10. All rush was partial view in the far sides of the front orchestra. The seats were good though didn’t feel like I missed much.
Tips for ushers? Does that even happen in NYC? Tipping in general in the UK, is not needed, and whilst the habit has crept in during recent years, there is no requirement to tip in restaurants/taxis etc. If you do tip, none of the ridiculousness thats expected in the US with 18%+, a 10% tip will be accepted very graciously for good service.
A difference from New York - Shows typically start bang on the scheduled start time. Not 6-7 minutes late like they do on Broadway.
We had a production here in London last year, very enjoyable. Sharon D Clarke (soon to reprise Caroline, or Change in the West End) was in the cast. No reason this can't work in a small production off-broadway, as it worked very well at the Southwark Playhouse.
Perfect show for the West End. I bet it will transfer within the next two years.

Saw the show on Thursday knowing very little about it. Purposely avoided listening to the album and hadn’t seen the movie.
It really was fantastic. The whole thing from start to finish had me very entertained. This is quite an unusual thing for the West End for an off West-End show like this to have a transfer to a much larger theatre. Most transfers of this scale come from the subsidised sector.
Carrie Hope Fletcher is giving a wonderful performance here, totally knocks it out
Reminds me when I booked tickets to the first preview of Dreamgirls in London and they were priced at £5.95 instead of £59.50. Had a call asking me to pay the remaining balance which I refused, and got an email the next day to say the mistake tickets would be honoured.
