I literally just did this for the matinee today. Got to the theater around 9:30 and there were I think 5 people before me. 3 or 4 more came by the time the box office opened. I got a row A rear mezz seat.

I tried to get tickets for the Wednesday matinee. Got there at around 10:45 and the box office guy said they only had tickets for the evening show but to come closer to showtime and check again just in case. I returned at 12:30 and luckily enough got two tickets in the second to last row of the mezz!

I went on a Thursday night during the last week of January and got two tickets front row. We got there 5-10 minutes before 6 and there were maybe 5 people in front of us...

My friends and I rushed on a Wednesday in late January. The box office opened at 1 and we got there about 15 minutes before. 1 other guy came before the box office opened. I don't know if it's any different on the weekends but it seems like during the week there's no need to be there early.

My friends tried the lotto for the Sunday night show and there were a good amount of people there. None of us won but they did have a "lotto losers line" with $40 tickets. My friends did that and were happy with the seats (side orchestra I think). So hopefully if you tried the lotto you'd be able to have that as a cheaper back up than TKTS.

I went today. Got to the theater around 9:30 and there were about 13-15 people in front of me. I'm pretty positive a few people got rush (don't know where) but they sold out of them 3 people in front of me. I got standing room though. Back of the mezz. The only thing about the first few numbers (my friend and I were 1 and 2) in standing room is that the last row in front of you is pretty high so we were trying to see between people's heads.

I went the Saturday matinee after Thanksgiving. We got there right at 12 and got the last two rush seats together (he started selling them right when we arrived and gave out 5-10 tickets before us). I was seated right next to the runway and could kind of see the projections but my friend couldn't and had to lean over me to see during that scene. And the sign up for who would be playing Fela was not up (it still had Sahr's name up from the night before when we got the tickets but when we came for

I rushed for the matinee last Wednesday and got to the theater around 9:30 with less than 10 people in front of me. My friend and I got tickets no problem in the mid-mezzanine. I'm pretty sure that when the box office opened there were no more than 3-5 people behind us so I don't think it's really necessary to get there that early. Plus there were quite a few empty seats in the mezz.

I rushed on Sunday with my mom and sister. We got to the theater (I think) around 11. He had just given out the wristbands and there were maybe 16 people in front of us but when he came back to give us wristbands we were numbers 14 and 15 (the numbers are written on the wristbands and he asks how many tickets you're getting too). We got tickets in the last row the three farthest to the right on the aisle and I think there were 4 tickets left behind us (judging from the people sitting on the othe

I'm still unsure of how I feel about this... I read the play this summer and it made me wish the Broadway production had not fallen through. I do agree with Wayman_Wong and I think that having his name attached will bring in an audience that would not be introduced to this material otherwise (and I think it is an important piece to see), so I am happy that it will be getting something. Fingers crossed for a great adaptation! And I have faith that he'll be able to find a great cast as well.

I agree, it wouldn't make much sense for there to be another album. Maybe the one in October will be fully packaged or something since the one they are selling at the park basically comes in a hard-stock envelope with the track listing printed on the back.

Yeah, I went by the box office to pick up my tickets for tomorrow's matinee and there were understudies on for Chrissy, Gavin (both expected), Dionne and Abe Lincoln. Then under that there was a list of maybe 4 or 5 tribe members that would be on. I'm sorry I can't remember who exactly all the understudied were but Paris was definitely on as Claude with Jay as a tribe member.

The concert sounds like it was amazing! Oh how I wish I lived in the city... and I am also praying that Stew and Heidi might do the show again (prefereably at a time I can see it). I am espeically intrigued by the Black Boys/Big Black Man mix. Sounds pretty genius to me!
On another note, I am really hoping to make it to the movie this weekend at IFC (especially if I can get to one of the Saturday filmings that Stew and Heidi are scheduled to attend). Fingers crossed!
