I was purchasing tickets tonight for one of the St. Paul performances, and I noticed that Mallory Maedke will be filling in for Abby Mueller for the duration of the run. A note on the Ordway's website reads, "Abby Mueller, who was previously announced to play Jane Seymour at the Ordway, will no longer perform during this engagement due to recuperation from an injury." I'll definitely miss being able to see Abby perform, but I hope for her quick recovery
FYI for those considering the Oklahoma! lottery these days: The lottery loser emails still come with an option to buy $59.50 tickets but sans a lottery loser code. In other words, there's no way to avoid the Telecharge fees by buying lottery loser seats at the box office.
That being said, the box office agents at Circle in the Square are some of the nicest agents I've interacted with at any Broadway theater. They should be able to match the $59.50 price at

For those entering the Philly Hamilton lottery, one thing to consider are the lottery loser seats. If you enter the lottery via LuckySeat (NOT the Hamilton app) and don't win, your notification email will oftentimes include a link to buy $49 tickets (inclusive of fees!) for any open seat in the theater. The $49 tickets are usually only available for Sunday evening and Tuesday-Thursday shows, with the best seats available on Tuesday evenings.&n
Dang, looks like I just missed out on this. Code doesn't work anymore.
All My Sons Previews Apr 7

I saw this afternoon's matinee. For context: This is the first live performance I've seen of any Arthur Miller play. I was introduced to Miller's writing in high school, when I read The Crucible, but I absolutely fell in love with his plays when I started reading more of them while serving on a play reading committee a couple of years back. While I consider All My Sons to be among his most approachable works, I never quite found it to be up to the level of his other plays, writing-wise. I was ho
Laura Benanti to replace Lauren Ambrose in MY FAIR LADY Oct 22

I was also one of the lottery winners for Halloween day, but I "unfortunately" won an evening performance ticket. I live in Delaware, so an evening performance is pretty much out of the question for me unless I plan to take 1.5 days off of work or arrive at work on Thursday insanely tired (though, the chance to see Laura Benanti is a huge temptation). If anyone won a matinee ticket and is willing to swap, PM me before 12 noon tomorrow!
Put me in the camp of those who thought this show was good but not great. I came in hoping to love it, and I came away appreciating and chewing on it but, ultimately, wanting more. I can't quite put my finger on it, but the piece did not feel fully fleshed out nor completely polished. What probably bothered me the most was that the book felt more developed than most of the lyrics; as such, I felt much more drawn into the characters when they weren't si
When I got on the rush line today (Saturday) a little after 10am (didn't have much choice given the timing of my intercity train), I must have been around 50th in line. Needless to say, I didn't get a rush ticket and ended up getting a ticket via StubHub. Perhaps because of MLK Jr. weekend, my Saturday matinee ticket came out to $44 before fees ($56 after fees) for Row F Seat 8 (house right rear mezz), which was about the cheapest the tickets went.
My friend and I rushed last Saturday for 4 tickets to the evening performance. We got to the box office around 10 minutes after 10am and were about 20th in the line that was there at the time. We were offered partial view for $39 or full view for $55 (we chose partial view). When I told the box office attendant that we'd be happy with being split up as two groups of 2, sitting near or behind one another, she said that that was likely the seating arrangement we'd
Thanks again for all this great advice. Much appreciated.
I ended up getting to the theater around 230am and was the first one there. As Wick3 noted, there were three people on the DEH line across the street, and the lighted Carousel sign at the Imperial was bright enough to light up the sidewalks on both sides of the street that were nearby. As such, I took the chance to just secure my belongings and sleep at the Schoenfeld. By the time I woke up from my first nap at 530am, there were
Another thread mentioned someone getting a SRO ticket on a two-show Wednesday when getting in line at 10am. I just wanted to confirm that this was the case for me, as well. After picking up my rush ticket at Come From Away for the evening show, I walked around the block and got in the box office line for Hello, Dolly! a little after 10:05am. Both me and a couple behind me were able to secure SRO tickets to the matinee. Granted, I got SRO 22 (one spot away from the edge of the padded bar on ho
Thanks so much for your replies, everyone. All this information is immensely helpful.
I wanted to bump this topic, as I'm actually planning on coming into the City soon to do overnight rush (though, ironically, not totally by choice). As I live out-of-state (and don't want to drive into/pay for a hotel in the City, especially just for a day-trip), I have to rely on the bus/train schedules, nearly all of which are non-ideal for getting rush tickets for a pop
In addition to what others have said above, know that you can use discount codes at the box office (i.e. in person). It's a good way to avoid fees, especially if you are in the City already. Moreover, there are some shows that will offer you discounted tickets only at the box office. Ticket locations and prices are at the discretion of the box office. I know Waitress does this with rear mezz seats, and Fun Home did it when it was still running at Circle in the Square.
I can't speak to rush, but I did easily purchase a $30 balcony ticket for tonight's performance 2 minutes AFTER the play started (or, perhaps, more accurately, 2 minutes after the "pre-show" started). Per prior threads on this topic, the balcony is an ideal view of the stage, especially given the action that takes place in the box seats (and you don't miss any of the action). Also, the balcony ushers let latecomers sit anywhere in the side balcony except for the front ro
I got the Groundhog Day survey last week. I also got this Anastasia survey today. For the latter, I'm guessing I got it because Telecharge acquired my contact info when I bought a rush ticket to The Great Comet a few weeks back. I've gotten a couple of Telecharge emails before this one arrived in my inbox today.
