Then how would Ticketmaster / Telecharge make money?

The third and fourth people came in a pair and arrived at around 7:45. Then the line was quiet until about 8:30, when the fifth and sixth people arrived. The line steadily grew after that.
The three tickets we got were all orchestra: two of which were I9 and I11, and the other was I10. It was a fantastic view

You can try looking up pictures of the set to see if the sides would be any issue but it really is a very small theater that shouldn't obstruct unless there's a set piece there."
I haven't done the line yet but I doubt it's the same as Avenue Q as this rush is of the 2-hours before curtain variety.

The person at the box office said the seat they were offering to me IS a full view seat and I had a perfect view of everything up close. It was totally worth a 2-3 hour wait. The person at the box office said rush seats tend to be close to the stage."
what time did you arrive in line that Morning to rush?&q
VotePeron said: "Do not count on getting a ticket a second past 10am - the box office is extremely rude, and pandered to me about how "rush goes on sale at 10am, the line starts very early, and there are a limited amount of tickets."
I tried rushing a few times -
1) Arrived at 6pm with over 300 seats available, denied a rush seat. 2) Arrived at 8am with over 200 seats available, they only sold 12 rush tickets (i didn't get one) <
GlenCoco said: "How has July 4th been for ticket availability and rush avaiblility. I have no idea since the fact that most people watch fireworks and have plans is offset by not very many musicals being offered."
There's only ONE general rush line on 7/4 and there's no guarantee that they will even have any tickets available that day as that particular box office sometimes has no rush availability during holidays ... ask them in person in advance.

I looked at tickets yesterday and unlike before the closing announcement, the show is sold really well for today, so I'm not sure how many rush tickets there'll be =/ I'm considering jumping ship for Beetlejuice
EDIT: Third-ish person in line told me she got here at 6:30"
