I'ved tried two different Saturdays, once getting there at 10 and once getting there at 9:30, no luck either time. Both times there were 50+ people in front of me.

Worked on the pre-Broadway version... the early weeks of the Los Angeles run had a song for George called that. It was cut late in previews.

I think Laura Osnes is a great choice. I usually can't stand the character of Hope, but maybe she'll change my mind. I love Sutton, but I think she's a strange choice for Reno... and WHY do they always try and make her blonde??? She's very pretty as a brunette, blonde wigs just look strange on her.

The orchestra is kind of in your lap in the front row, and I've been told that there is occasionally a sightline problem with them in the very front row.
No rake to the house, but it is a very small theatre, a little less than 400 seats.

A friend and I did it on a weekday last week, we were first in line till about 9:45ish. Half hour before BO opens is prob fine.

I got a box seat for rush price half an hour to curtain on a Saturday matinee about two weeks ago. You'll probably be fine.

| PROMISES, PROMISES Rush- where are the seats located? Apr 25
2010, 10:07:43 AM|
Did rush yesterday, got there about 9:15 and got a seat easily. Long line by like 9:40. The seats are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay in the back though, like very last row of rear mezz. I almost wish I had splurged for a better seat, but at least I got to appreciate the choreography.

Go for the As, its great to see the show that close, and the stage isn't too high.

Personally I much prefer the right side. Its true more of the set is cut off, but because of the way the set slants on the left side, the actors tend to face right MUCH more than left.

It drives me bonkers every time I see this in Broadway shows, which happens entirely too often. Its a pretty hard and fast rule in every theatre I've ever worked in, professional or not, that crew wears black. SOMETIMES you can get away with really really dark wash jeans or chucks, but I've seen crew get crap from other crew members for trying to pass with like navy and dark grey.

The pre-Broadway run didn't have an intermission. I worked on the show, still have my script and score.

| Billy Elliot/Imperial ticket question Feb 2
2010, 04:41:35 PM|
I personally love sitting close up, but wouldn't recommend it for a first viewing.
A107-108 are right in back of the conductor, which can be pretty distracting, again, if its your first show. I sat in AA right next to him once and it wasn't bad. You might enjoy AA2/4 a bit more though, which are the closest to center seats in right orchestra. The stage is not terribly high, I'm pretty short and can still see everyone's feet. Its also pretty steeply raked.
