Hi all,

 

I'm heading up to NYC in two weeks to celebrate my 21st. I'm a huge theatre geek and I was hoping to secure tickets for DEH... but of course a few months ago when I first checked I didn't book and now they're all but sold out! I know there are broker ticket options from StubHub or BroadwayBox and I'm definitely open to those - but preferably as a last resort due to the exorbitant ticket prices.

I was wondering whether anybody on here has experience with the cancellation line or the lottery (both digital and in-person) for the show. Regarding the cancellation line, would I pay full-price of the cancelled ticket (so.. around $400 if it was an orchestra seat)? Is there anything that can be done to increase you chance at the lottery?

Thank you all for your help!

I was able to score a cancelled ticket an hour before a Wednesday matinee about a couple months ago for the regular orchestra price - $189. There wasn't a cancellation line; I just went to the box office window and asked if there were any cancelled tickets. Not sure how it is for other days or times.

Thanks for your help! Was there a line when you went to the ticket office?

(also, bump for other opinions)

The line wasn't that long at all, but it also depends on what time of day you go. For matinee go about an hour before and for a night show go early afternoon and then again an hour before the how if you had no luck the first time.

I'm also looking into hopefully scoring a cancellation ticket when I'm in town in May. Right now I see that as my best chance of seeing the show without paying the exorbitant prices at StubHub.  Thanks for the tips.

So I am going to get my butt up early tomorrow and try for SRO for the matinee or a cancelation. Just wondering where the line starts? Is the first person in line looking at The Marriott Marquis or The Imperial? I just don't want to get there and screw it up, I have heard stories. They sell SRO at 10am when the box office opens? I have been searching for the original post, but couldn't find the details, please don't yell at me!  

Have a great night 

Dear Evan Hansen - Cancellation Line/Lottery
Posted by Wick3 2017-03-28 23:45:37


Good luck! line starts right outside the box office. The line then goes towards the Imperial. For two-show days, people who ended up not getting SRO tend to stay for cancellation for the matinee.

Thanks Wick!

Yes, I most likely will be someone waiting for cancellations if I don't get SRO. Thank you for the info. I plan on getting there pretty early. Hopefully by 10am thing will be good and I can go take a nap. Do you happen to know how much SRO tickets are? Cash only or card? 

I appreciate your kindness!

SRO are $42 either cash or card. Sending positive thoughts, the show is worth the wait!

Trying today. Do they come outside to the people waiting in line first or if someone just walked in and asked for one, would they be given one?

Dear Evan Hansen - Cancellation Line/Lottery
Posted by HunterK 2017-03-29 12:45:08


I got to the line at 5am this morning and there were at least 20+ people waiting. I walked right back to the hotel and went to sleep. Got up at 10 and walked over. Cancellation line was outside and only had 2 people. I honestly didn't know it was the line. So I waited in the box office line to ask, there were 10 people in front trying to buy for today or in the future. When I finally got up to the window, the very nice lady said the line is outside. I turned my heard and the line went from 2 people to 12, all the people in front of me in the box office line went and waited. I knew I didn't have a chance. I asked the box office lady if she had anything tonight or tomorrow and she said "hold on" and went and talked to the woman at the other window. All I heard was "I can release it?" She smiled and said I have Row F Mezzanine seat 108 for $169. I couldn't put my card down fast enough. Got my ticket for tomorrow night. The people behind me then asked for tomorrow as well and she said sold out. So I do not know how I got so lucky! Very excited!

Thanks for the positive thoughts!

Lucky you!!!!!!!!! I have heard mixed stories about cancellation line at DEH (some days they give a few seats some days only 1 seat and others none.) the fact that you got a ticket in center mezz with barely any waiting needed is a great deal, in my opinion.

now go see Hello Dolly! I heard there are cheap tickets for the matinee today on stubhub.

Luck you HunterK!!! surpriseThat's the dream!

My main issue with doing the lines is that it's all up to chance... this is probably the last time I will be in NYC until July, and I'm worried about catching OBC before some of them start to leave.

Worth the risk or worth the money?? Such a hard choice!

If you have the money, it is worth it to see the OBC! Though waiting in line for 6 hours for SRO for me was the best option, if I was visiting and didn't want to wait for so long I'd spend the money. As for the lottery, I know more people who've won the Hamilton lottery than have won for DEH. The SRO from a couple of weeks ago were skeptical of if they actually set aside seats for the lottery. 

Hope this helps!

By any chance did you ask what time the first person got there?  My daughter will be giving it a shot next Thursday and that is the only day she can go.  She was thinking 4:30.  I want her to go early but not too early.

Thanks!

I do know from asking the box office about the box seats that they now set them aside for lottery. They used to sell them for an amazing price - I think like $69. I wanted to buy them after people on this board said the view was totally worth it, but when I went to purchase them the box office told me they're for lottery now. I was lucky enough to get a regular price cancellation ticket instead - which was also totally worth it.

Thought I'd leave my GREAT experience with the cancellation line. I got in the SRO line at 9:55, knowing I wouldn't get anything, but hoping to maybe get a cancelled ticket. I got to the front and there wasn't anything, but she said that they do start handing out cancellation tickets around 12 (for the 2pm matinee), so it was around 10:30 and I was first in the cancellation line! At 12:15ish, I was pulled in and got my Premium Row G seat for $189! Amazing seat, amazing show.

The cancellation line is really the way to go for this show. And most likely, matinee is your best bet for it.

Dear Evan Hansen - Cancellation Line/Lottery
Posted by Debra Ritter 2017-03-31 22:25:45


Unfortunately can't afford to do cancellation, standing room is the only option.  Its supposed to rain the day she is going to try, maybe that'll help (but wont be fun).  Still curious what time folks got there yesterday or today and whether they were successful.

 

Thanks!

Thanks all! These stories are making the cancellation line sound better and better...

I will be in NYC both Saturday and Sunday so that gives me two opportunities for matinee. Would one be better than the other?

Also regarding the actual queueing... if the matinees are at 2pm and 3pm, does that mean arriving around 10am for both? Where does the cancellation line start?

I have always thought for past shows that the rain would deter people from waiting on line, but in my opinion even more people showed up than usual. My thinking was everyone thought no one would show because of the weather so they came out. It sucks, I know.

Dear Evan Hansen - Cancellation Line/Lottery
Posted by Wick3 2017-04-01 07:45:50


Cancellation starts the moment SRO is sold out.

 

i agree with Djoko that it doesn't matter if it rains or freezing cold out. I did SRO during the holidays and was 4th in line by getting there around 5am. Sure the line varies but people will line up during their nyc visit or during spring break when they have time off. These people may not have the $$$ for cancellation but they certainly have the time to wait for SRO.

As I try to figure out what's realistic...

The cancellation line sounds great for a single person, but given the popularity of the show, is there any reason to think people could get 3 cancellation tickets, even on a Tuesday or Wednesday? Where is the cancellation line?

Is the lottery online only or can you enter in person?

Dear Evan Hansen - Cancellation Line/Lottery
Posted by Shannonigans 2017-04-03 20:23:15


Bear - I did some digging into the lottery as well, seeing as I'm still trying to figure out the most realistic course of action despite leaving for NYC on Friday (eek!). It appears to be digital lottery only and you enter here: http://www.dearevanhansenlottery.com/ 

I also wanted to ask, would a centre mezz seat be a good option for DEH, even if it was towards the back of the section? 

Dear Evan Hansen - Cancellation Line/Lottery
Posted by djoko84 2017-04-04 06:15:48


Just letting you know even the mezzanine seats have been all sold out. Those are always the first to go. You'll have better luck with an orchestra cancellation.

Dear Evan Hansen - Cancellation Line/Lottery
Posted by Shannonigans 2017-04-04 11:57:29


Yes, I understand orchestra is more likely for cancellation - but I'm also keeping my eye on StubHub because I'm definitely considering just buying in advance to guarantee a spot. winkThe mezzanine tickets are the most reasonably priced on StubHub, so I was curious about the view!

Mezzanine view, especially in the center, is great at the Music Box. You don't feel far away all. I'd recommend looking at some of the pictures here to get an idea: http://aviewfrommyseat.com/venue/Music+Box+Theatre/

If you're the first 3 people in the cancellation line, then my answer is yes it'll be likely all 3 of you will get a ticket. Try to go on a 2 show day to increase your chances

A few more pesky questions...

It sounds like people line up at the crack of dawn for SRO tickets. Once those are gone, then cancellation tickets are sold. What about people who would prefer cancellation tickets? Do they need to arrive at 5 a.m. or can they drift up later and possibly score 3 cancellation tickets? Can you buy cancellation tickets for an evening show mid-day, or does the cancellation line start all over again at some point (when?) In the late afternoon?

Sorry for so many questions. There is never any guarantees in these things. I'm just trying to determine whether I should give this a shot, or pursue other shows next Wednesday.

Dear Evan Hansen - Cancellation Line/Lottery
Posted by LesWickedly 2017-04-04 14:58:31


I'll say what I said before, but the line didn't start forming until after the SRO line ended. My plan was to get in the SRO line a 5 minutes before opening and then just wait and be first in line for cancellation. Didn't get to the front until about 10:30 and was first in line. The next person didn't show up until around 11. Got my ticket around 12:15. Do the cancellation line now before it gets crazy, it's very easy now.

I know this is probably obvious advice, but if you're interested in paying full price and don't want to wait on the cancellation line, keep checking Telecharge continuously several days before the performance. Saturday night I scored row B side orchestra for tomorrow's matinee. Several seats we're released in the orchestra and mezz. 

Dear Evan Hansen - Cancellation Line/Lottery
Posted by bear88 2017-04-04 15:27:22


Ljay, that is excellent 'obvious' advice. I got terrific Hamilton SF tour tickets that way. I am less familiar with Telecharge.

LesWickedly, you can show up at 10 or 11 and possibly get 3 cancellation tickets? Would that be for the Wednesday matinee only or is the evening show offered as well?

Thanks for the advice LJ! I also saw this on another thread and have been constantly checking the telecharge website in addition to StubHub. The only issue is that as a tourist in NYC I wouldn't have anywhere to print a super last minute ticket buy... here's hoping I get lucky before I leave on Friday.

Hi guys... I obsessively check these boards every time I'm planning a trip to NYC, but this is my first time posting. I've been seeing shows on Broadway since 2000 and this is the first time I've EVER not been able to secure tickets to a show that's on my "must list." I'm going for a week the last week of May and every show is sold out. NOT a happy camper.

lite2shine, Does your message mean that Telecharge will release more tickets closer to show dates? I'm really not looking forward to standing in the cancellation line for hours.

Congrats to Shannonigans and bfreak. I'll certainly keep checking Telecharge. I'm impressed about getting two together. I need three total, but only two together. 

I'm still confused about one thing. If you get cancellation tickets at noon at whenever they sell them on a two-show day, like next Wednesday, can you only get tickets for the matinee or can you request the evening show? Or do you have to come back later? And if so, when?

I really hope you'll be able to get. That is very close to the Tonys and a lot of shows will set aside tickets for voters. However, a lot of voters don't use them (and will have seen the shows by that time) so I'm sure there will be lots of cancellations.

From my experience they only sell cancellation tix for the upcoming performance. So if you're at the box office at noon on Wednesday, they'll sell you cancellation tix for the matinee (if ticket is available.) all the tickets for evening will most likely be premium at that time.

after the matinee has started, box office will sell cancellation for the evening oerformance whenever they get a cancellation. As for when to come back, who knows! It depends if you have competition. If there are other people vying for evening cancellation tix, your best bet is to stay at the box office and wait.

good luck!

We snagged three orchestra tickets together to the Wednesday night show, in row N on the far right (one vacant seat to our right). There are, as of now, three seats together in the row in front in Row M on the far right and the single next to us.

So how are our seats (Row N, 22-26)?

Grab 'em for face value! Thanks to everyone.

Update: Someone grabbed two of those Row M seats, so there is now just a single in Row M and a single in Row N. But there are three seats available in center mezzanine now, two together, one several rows back. "Keep checking the website" seems to be the best plan.

I just got back from seeing the show tonight - and it was incredible, Ben Platt's performance was truly outstanding - and for anyone still hesitating about buying tickets or queueing or whatever for this show, there were four completely empty seats in the row in front of me. I was in Row K so that means they were Row J of the orchestra. And they were also more centred than my tickets! (I was in the last seat of Row K, stage left)

This pattern seems to hold as I just got a ticket for Thursday thanks to this board! I've regularly been on here for a year or so but just decided to join.

Passover is a week, starting Monday night the 10th.  Usually only first night, maybe 2nd are celebrated.  He wouldn't be out Wednesday on for Passover even if he went home (most likely).  Hope he isn't sick, such a demanding role, he looked so exhausted after the show I saw.

I think he's sick. I had heard he was a little under the weather on Saturday but he still performed both shows. 

I had been checking stubhub on Friday night and Saturday morning to see if prices would drop for a single ticket to one of the Saturday shows.  I was just about to buy one but the ticket was back of the theatre and cost a little more than a full price orchestra ticket at face value.

On Saturday I stopped by the box office around 10:30 and there was no cancellation line. I inquired at the box office and was advised that if I wanted to start a line I would probably be able to get a ticket and that they probably wouldn't have any until about 12/12:30. I started a line and a few minutes later someone else joined me in line. 

A few minutes after that a man at the box office came outside to ask how many tickets each of us was looking for. We each wanted singles can and the man sounded like he would have some for us before long.

Shortly after that, at about 10:45am, he came back outside to tell me he had a ticket for me. It was 4th row orchestra on the left side, close to the aisle. I waited 10-15 minutes and ended up with a great ticket! Sure it was a little pricey, but there was no way I was going to be there at 2am to wait in line for SRO. 

It was definitely worth it so if you aren't able to find tickets on telecharge within days of the performance I definitely recommend popping by! I notice a few tickets on stubhub that had dropped quite a bit in price up until the last minute, but that can be a bit risky if you don't have enough time to pick up your ticket and get to the theatre.

They just released some single seats for Friday's performance on telecharge. pricy but worth it. I think Ben will hopefully be less sick by then as he has to be in town for the chat at the 92nd St Y on Sunday...here's hoping!!!

I am looking to sell my ticket for this Friday 4/14. I have to leave town earlier than I thought for the holiday. It's just one, but it's Side Orchestra row O so the view shouldn't be bad. If anyone in here is interested, feel free to message.

How is the view from the extreme sides, Rows M-O?  Most of the tickets opening up on Telecharge these days are in these areas. Also, any reports recently in obtaining cancellation tickets?  Wondering if I should wait for a better seat from cancellation or get these seats for a sure thing once they open up.

In the exact same boat as you.  Trying for Fri Apr 28th as coming from out of town for weekend and already have a show booked for Saturday.  Have never tried StubHub but it looks like there is a pickup spot for tickets around 40th and 6th.  Has anyone ever tried the last minute StubHub option with pickup option?  I do have to wonder what happens to all of StubHubs tickets as they seem to hold onto a  lot of them.

I have picked up tickets from the StubHub last minute service center in the Courtyard Marriott and it was really easy. The whole process took maybe 5 minutes. I bought the tickets on the app and then went there and told them the information about my order. They brought out my tickets immediately. Great experience!

Thank you.  Great to hear from someone who has tried it that it's simple and quick.  I just downloaded the app.  I assume when you purchase from StubHub it gives you the option for pick up (or maybe no option if its less than 1hr before?)

Actually, be careful with that because it depends on the ticket.  Most are "Pickup at StubHub Last Minute Service Center," but some say "Instant Download."  If you're using the app and are hanging out in midtown, printing your tickets won't be an easy option. So make sure you choose to buy the right type.

I purchased four tickets through StubHub and two of them were instant download and two were pickup. However, I went to the StubHub LMS Center and picked up two and asked to print out the other two and it was really easy and quick. I would recommend to go to the StubHub center if the tickets are instant download or pickup.

Thank you, ccbroadway13!

To add my 2 cents regarding the DEH lottery and cancellation line....after entering the digital lottery almost daily since the beginning of the year and never winning, I decided to try the cancellation line last Saturday, 4/15.  I was going to see the 3pm matinee of Paramour anyway, so got to the Music Box Theater a little before 2pm, right before the matinee for DEH that day.  Because the show was about to start, the box office was closed to future sales and open only to people picking up tickets for the matinee.  I was told to come back at 2:15pm if I wanted to purchase tickets for a future performance.  I wandered across the street to see if there were any rush tickets available for Come From Away, but they also had a 2pm matinee performance and have the same policy about futures sales right before a show; I was told to wait with 2 or 3 other people who had formed a line already.  I decided to go back over to DEH, and was about the 3rd or 4th person in line there.  At almost exactly 2:15pm, they started letting us in one by one to purchase tickets. When I went in, I inquired about rush and SRO tickets.  I was told that there were no rush tickets for DEH (I didn't think there were, but thought I'd ask anyway!), and that all the SRO tickets for the evening performance were already sold.  Then I inquired about cancellation tickets for the evening show and was told that they aren't released until about 2 hours before the performance.  So I went to Paramour and after the show ended, went right back to DEH at around 5:30pm.  There was one woman standing outside the theater, but I wasn't sure if she was in a line or not, so I proceeded into the box office and asked about rush/SRO (just in case!) and cancellations again.  Again, was told that SRO tickets were all sold and that they start releasing cancellation tickets around 6pm.  The box office person told me there was already a line outside, so I went back out and fortunately, there was only still the one woman standing there.  I asked if she was in the cancellation line and got a yes.  After about 10-15 mins, I believe around 5 more people joined the line.  No more joined by 6pm.  Right after 6pm, a man comes out and goes directly to the front of the line and asks the lady how many tickets she needs.  After she said one, he said he had a ticket for her that was $189 and to go into the box office.  Then he asked me and I also replied one, and he gave me the same response, and told me to go into the box office. The woman in front of me got Orch L Row F Seat 1 and I got Orch L Row F Seat 3.  Only 2 more people behind me also got tickets I believe, and they sat next to me.  These were excellent seats; believe that they were house seats that were unclaimed by friends/family of the cast and crew.  Definitely a great deal because seats a row or two further back from these and also further to the sides are listed as Premium on Telecharge and go for $399!

Thanks for sharing, Caye2.  My trip is not until a few weeks but stories like yours make me just want to take that chance at the cancellation line instead of buying the tickets that are in the extreme sides of orchestra.  But having a ticket before I get there would give me peace of mind.  I'll just have to wait and see...

Don't worry about the extrme side seats, as long as you're far enough back. (I might be skittish about the first three rows.) But I went last Wednesday night, sat in Row N, one seat in from the right side, and had no problem. The action is almost all in the center of the stage.

Why are the exact same seats considered premium one night (Sat at $399) and non-premium another night (Wed at $189 - J 113/114).  Currently seeing same seats available at different prices on telecharge.

We were there last night too.  Walked up to the BO at  5PM only 3 people in line.  I waited only about 5 minutes and got two single seats.  2nd row center aisle and 5th row left 3 in.  I took the 2nd row (I'm taller, first row is probably worse) and my husband took the other seat.  He ended up sitting next to a cast member from Hamilton but he didn't know who he was.  Everyone around knew who it was.

Yes they were 189.  I was lucky to get a ticket so I was fine with 2nd row.  Wouldn't be my first choice but you could see the lace front on the wigs on the women.  4-5 rows back would be ideal.  The high is kinda high.

No, he didn't know who it was but the guy was taking notes on a steno pad through the show.

For whatever reason DEH non-premium seats often pop up the morning of performance or day before the performance. Not sure if they are premium seats that have been devalued or house seats. That's how I found mine a few days ago, but I had seen non-premium seats show up on telecharge that same day on other occasions, I just couldn't fit it into my schedule.

I've been watching this week as i'm looking for tickets for next Friday (so trying to get an idea).  "Cheap" tickets at $189 have been showing off and on but that's been for Tuesday and Wednesday shows.  Think it was Thursday that only had the$399 seats.  For 2 that is over $800 (and much higher for us as we're Canadian).   Friday and into weekend there is nothing at all.  

Am tempted to try StubHub .  The $200 to $250 seats are a deal.  Never done StubHub before though so am a bit worried if it'll work out.

I'm going to NYC over the fourth of July weekend and am a huge fan of doing rush/SRO, but got discouraged reading how early the SRO line starts and decided to splurge and buy tickets to the Sunday matinee on Stubhub.  The tickets are Orchestra Row D, seats 13 and 15 (so partial view, extreme side, left). 

How is the view from these seats?  I've read everything from 'there is no bad seat in the theater' to 'avoid the extreme side seats, especially on the left'.

The more I read on this thread, the more I wish I had waited to see if any seats were released on Telecharge or waited on the cancellation line. 

Any thoughts on these seats would be greatly appreciated!  I cannot wait to see this show!

Thanks for being honest, that's what I want! Now I just don't know if it's worth trying to sell them on StubHub and try for cancellation tix... or just be happy with those seats. I've done partial view before, but it's easier to swallow when they are cheap rush tickets or lottery seats and not crazy marked up tickets from StubHub.

If I had a choice for which side to sit in, definitely sit in right orchestra or right mezz. In one of the critical scenes Evan Hansen is looking towards house right (stage left) so from your seat, you'll be seeing his back a lot (not his facial expressions/mannerisms.)

I'm so happy I stumbled upon this thread. I was going to buy a ticket from Stubhub and was going to end up spending at least $350 for a semi decent ticket. I didn't even think of checking telecharge again since I just assumed it was sold out. I checked right after I read this thread and they had one seat available. I scored a Right Orchestra Row N seat for $189. So thank you to everyone who suggested checking telecharge!!

For DEH, StubHub prices drop significantly about an hour before curtain. If you aren't afraid of a last minute option, I would recommend buying a StubHub ticket and picking it up/printing it at the StubHub LMS center in NYC. It's about a 10 minute walk from the theatre. You can usually get a ticket for around $130 - give or take.

It worked for me but that was a couple weeks ago, the last week in April (got normal priced tickets on Tues for the Friday evening).  I have noticed $399 seats but not sure about non-premium as each day gets closer to Tonys.

So I don't post on here much but wanted to share my experience.

I was wanting to see the show this last Saturday night 5/20 @ 8PM. Telecharge had nothing "pop up", watched resale sites but the cheapest seat was going for $350 and eventually got sold. Went to the box office around 5:30PM and the box office clerk recommended the cancellation line.

I got in line at 5:45PM on a Saturday, there were 6 people ahead of me. At about 6:10PM, someone came out and asked how many tickets everyone needed and the first 5 people got to go in and purchase. By 6:30PM, the line had about 15-20 people in it. By 7:00PM around 30, and then people started giving up throughout the line. At around 7:15, he came out again with a pair of tickets. Luckily, the girl in front of me only needed 1 ticket and I was by myself. I got Row G Center orchestra for $189. An amazing deal if you ask me and I felt like it was worth the stress I had had that day. 

At 7:59, the two people standing behind me in line (positions 8 and 9) got let in and sat right next to me.

Totally worth doing this! I wish I had done it earlier in my trip and not waited until the last night. Hope that helps!

When this worked for me (end of April), I was trying for Friday night show.

On Monday night around 6pm, they released the $399 seats.

On Tues around 3:30pm, they released $189 and lower seats.

Good luck!

It is basically a hit or miss.  You have to watch it like a hawk.  When I was looking for tickets earlier this month, nothing in the $200 was showing up.  I got lucky when a handful showed up on Stubhub for center mezzanine and I grabbed it.  I continued to follow Telecharge and no tickets showed up in the same price range and location.  I highly suggest you follow both Telecharge and Stubhub.  You just never know when the good tickets might show up.

Just this morning I saw a couple Center Orchestra pair on Stubhub for $200 each for the matinee. I don't know if all the orchestra tickets are $189, but if they are I guess that was very, very reasonable.

If anyone is out of luck tonight, I'm seeing two orchestra seats for $207 in Stubhub NOW.

(Is it wrong to post these things if one comes across them? I'd appreciate your input. I've been following how the prices behave and saw these)

Hey everyone! I am going into NYC tomorrow. I plan on rushing in the morning of the 27th (saturday). I have been debating if I should rush Hello Dolly or DEH. If anyone wants to team up and rush with me, one to Hello Dolly and one to DEH, just send me a PM! Thanks!!!

After entering the lottery almost every single day (except for days I was out of town), since November, I FINALLY WON the DEH lottery for today. I couldn't believe my eyes when I got the text message and email! I hadn't really heard of anyone winning, but someone has to, right? I got 2 seats, one was in the box and the other was in the front row all the way to the side. The stage is very high and my bf is pretty tall, so he agreed to take the seat in row A. My seat in the box was incredible. So, it IS possible to win!

After the large sweep at the Tonys, I'm assuming that tickets through the cancellation line will be harder to get? If anyone goes within the next week or two, please share your experience! :) I'm planning to try the line sometime in July, and I'm hoping that it won't be necessary to camp out like many people did for Hamilton last year.

No, not even close. Premium tickets for HAMILTON are FAR more expensive, and regular-priced tickets for DEH are still in the "reasonable" range of $199 and under.

Hey, so I'm going to be in NYC from June 20th to the 23rd and I was wondering a couple things. How safe is it to camp out at night? I've heard people getting there at show time the night before didn't get anything so what time do you recommend? And have prices on stub hub dropped lower closer to performances?

I walked by the theater last night around 8pm and there were already at least 6-7 people lined up and camped out for the night. This was the first show post-Tonys, so don't know if this will be consistent, but I can't see it really becoming too much of a shorter wait at this point.

Jorge, I looked at StubHub 10 minutes before showtime and the cheapest was $150 for From Row mezz. Not too bad, but I'd recommend trying to wait over night. If you can't, just go to the StubHub center and wait until you get the price you like and then RUN to the Music Box.

Very slim. Everyone has the same chance, but you can't count on it in any way. When I won I had to call Telecharge since the website wasn't working and the woman told me what the seats were over the phone. She felt bad the seats weren't together but I didn't care. It's $40 for one of the toughest most expensive tickets in town - do NOT be picky and take what they give you if you should be so lucky!

Hello! When I won the lottery I didn't know where the seats were until I picked them up at the box office. Although maybe I could have investigated a little more. It was 2 seats together in the box. Slight partial view but absolutely worth it!!!

My friend was 5th in line and got a partial view cancellation ticket. She mentioned that they had very few tickets for tonight. I'm more interested that CFA had so few tickets as well because they've been consistently having 8-10 rush seats plus 25 SRO. People who showed up at 10:30 on Sunday got SRO no problem. (Not trying to change the subject here!)

I also know that for a while DEH was putting a note on the door of the box office that alerted the people in line how many SRO tickets they had for that day. That was pre-Tonys though so they must have changed it.

I'm thinking of doing it through Stub Hub too, how soon before the show did you buy your tickets? And if you choose to pick up your tickets at the stub hub service center, do you have to print them out or are they actual physical copies? Thanks

I'm flying in from San Francisco tonight and didn't know about my trip in enough time to buy a ticket. Has anyone done cancellation line for DEH recently?

I'm wondering the same thing. I was hoping to do SRO again but since that option is cancelled I'm definitely willing to pay full price for a seat and wait a few hours in line to see it again.

I tried cancellations last Wednesday, first day of the SRO change hoping to get lucky.  At 11:30am there were about 15 ppl waiting in the line and we're told cancellations would be sold at 12:30 for the matinee. I left, saw Bandstand across the street and  returned  at 4:30, and there were 10 ppl waiting for eve cancellations that would open up at 6pm.  By 6 there were 20 of us. We were also told all the seats & SRO from the lottery we're claimed. So, I guess people who win the lottery are happily taking whatever they win..sigh...

My best friend was lucky enough to win the DEH lottery on Sunday, July 2nd for the 3pm show! We found out the results at 9am and bought the tickets within about five minutes. There was no indication if they were standing room or seated. When we picked up the tickets at the box office just after 12pm, they already had all the lottery tickets printed, and the name of the person who won was printed right on each ticket, so the time you arrive at the box office has no bearing on what tickets you get.  

We ended up in the second row of the box on the left side of the audience (there's no seating on the box on the right side--sound equipment there instead). There are only five seats in the box: four of them are along the curved outer edge of the box and seemed unobstructed; one seat in the second row (mine! my ticket says Box50, LA 3) was partially obstructed by the person in front of me. Since there was no one behind me and the chairs are movable, I just shifted side to side or leaned as necessary. Again, I think my seat was the only one in the box to have this obstruction issue, since everyone else is arranged along the outside of the box and therefore has no one in front of them. 

The tickets say partial view, but I didn't feel like I missed anything major. I couldn't see the band (stage right) from where I was, but my friend, who sat at the edge of the box, could see them at least partially. It was tough but not impossible to see Connor's mom when she was far upstage right during "Requiem" (the person in front of me had to lean right to see her). We couldn't see Ben's face during the first half of "Words Fail" since he's looking stage left (he turns to face the front halfway through the song and then we had a great view); we also couldn't see his face during "So Big, So Small" (but had a straight-on view of RBJ's face, which is the perfect view for that song).

Ultimately, I thought the seats were AMAZING. SO close with only minor obstructions (if you're stuck in the middle seat like I was, most of them can be fixed by leaning, moving your chair, or nicely asking the person in front of you to scooch a bit). Ben spends a lot of time stage right and our view of him was stunning. The box is also a great place for watching other people in the theater try to surreptitiously wipe away their tears  

Long story short: we weren't told where our seats would be when we won, but we bought tickets quickly after we were notified and ended up in the box seats, which were great. If you want to guarantee a seat, my experience suggests that you should buy quickly! :) Hope that helps. 




re: cancellation line: there was NO ONE in the cancellation line on Saturday, July 1st at 5pm for the 8pm show (or for any future shows), and the woman at the box office said it was likely that tickets would become available. We heard the next day that Ben did not perform that night, though, so that may have kept people away if it was announced beforehand. I asked the woman at the box office about SRO and she confirmed that they're all sold through the lottery now. I asked what happens to unclaimed SRO lottery tickets, but her answer wasn't clear to me. It may be worth calling the box office to ask if unclaimed SRO lottery tickets are sold to the cancellation line (like how Hamilton sells unclaimed lottery seats to the cancellation line at full price).

When we picked up our tickets on Sunday, July 2nd around noon, there were maybe 15-20 people in the cancellation line. Not sure what time they got there or if they got tickets.

I did cancellation line on Thursday, June 29. I got there at 1 PM and there were 2 people in front of me, one got there at 11, the other at noon. The next person came at 2 and then more trickled in as the afternoon went on. At 5:30, the box office guy came out and said they had 2 pairs of 2 tickets in the orchestra for $199 and then 2 SRO seats that went unclaimed in the lottery for ... something like $40 I can't remember because I wasn't going to take them. First person in line took 2 seats, the girl in front of me and I took the last 2 orchestra seats. The guy behind me and two people behind him didn't take the SRO seats so two girls after them did. I left and went to the Marriott to clean up and came back to the theatre. I got orchestra row F, seat 7 which was an excellent view! When we got into the theatre, the next 4 people in line were sitting in orchestra row G so at least 8 of us got orchestra seats and 2 got SRO.

All in all it was a great day even though it was boiling hot outside. Bring a foldie chair and an umbrella to keep the sun off of you because the side of the theatre faces the sun and never gets any shade. I was staring longingly at the Come From Away theatre that was in the shade haha.

Lottery update! I randomly won the lottery yesterday and purchased/claimed my tickets within four minutes. When we went to pick up our tickets at the box office, my name was already printed on our tickets and our seats were front row stage . It was incredible to see Ben Platt and the whole cast that close up, we saw and felt their spit, and saw everything else going on. Such a different experience seeing him literally shake as compared to SRO where I had previously seen it.

Also, the box office said they have a few cancellations for tonight but also said they  couldn't confirm the cast... They are starting at $100 so may be worth it to see it! Ben's voice was incredible last night, but I could tell he was struggling to hit the high notes, I'm assuming he is off tonight resting.

When you win the lottery, is there any indication whether you won a seat or SRO? Kinda don't want to truck all the way into NYC on such short notice and then stand the whole time, heh.

LAStevieG - You could always call the phone number in the email they send when you win and ask. When I won I had to call because I was having issue with the website and she was able to tell me what the seats were before I bought them.

Honestly though, if you are lucky enough to win the lottery, you should take ANY space in the theater they are willing to give you for $42. Or, if you don't want to, you can give it to me I'll stand!

Well, if there is only a single seat left, and they are picking winners... you can't be picked for two, so that does decrease your odds.

From what I know there seems to be a pattern on telecharge that four days in advance to the show, at random times throughout the day, telecharge will release a couple of face-value tickets. This is how I got one of my face value tickets on a Sunday to a Thursday show! Many other people in this thread confirmed this pattern. I suppose that any tickets that are cancelled before this four-day mark will go to telecharge and after it will go to the cancellation line the day of? Anyways, give this four-day thing a try! It certainly worked for me. Hope this helps!

The seats that have been released on Telecharge under the "4-day trick" generally appear to be unsold wheelchair companion, transfer arm, and transfer arm companion seats, and haven't seemed to be related to cancellations.

So as far as cancelled tickets go, does the box office sell those directly and do they sell them in advance?

I can't answer that definitively, but I'd assume that if you go on a Sunday and ask about Wednesday's show, they'll either have tickets or they won't. I don't believe using the word "cancellations" will make a difference.

What's a good time to get in the cancellation line for a matinee on a two show day?

Dear Evan Hansen - Cancellation Line/Lottery
Posted by Am85122 2017-07-15 01:43:05


This probably isn't the case everyday but tickets for  Tuesday's show popped up around 4:30pm today (Friday). Like someone mentioned earlier, these were unsold wheelchair companion seats. When I checked in around that time there were 3 left.

And I'm pretty sure they released all the unsold wheelchair companion seats at the same time because I'd checked earlier in the day whether there were unsold wheelchair companion seats even available (there were) and checked again after that 4:30 mark and those wheelchair accessible seats were all gone.

Hope that helps! So I'd recommend to just check frequently throughout the day and you can even check in to see if they were released yet or not by looking up "wheelchair & transfer arm seating" tickets.  (But obviously not to buy until they release them to non-wheelchair users.)

I'll be trying for DEH tickets for me and my two teen girls on 8/2 (Wednesday).  Based on all the great info in this thread, I am thinking of the following plan:
1) Check (check and check) telecharge days prior for wheelchair companion seats
2) Online lottery (to try for at least 2 tix)
3) Cancellation line
4) Stubhub within last 30 minutes (we are staying at the Marquis so we could print and get to the door pronto).  Only issue with the Stubhub option is that it could possibly block us out of another show if we don't score tickets - we are in town for only three days and want to see two plays on Wednesday.

How does this plan sound?  Any options to get to another play quickly (and cheaply) if we miss out on DEH matinee stubhub tickets?

Your plan sounds great. If you miss out on DEH tickets, you'll always have TKTS as an $80-90 last-minute option for a lot of shows, including Bandstand, Miss Saigon, and Waitress. Anastasia has been on there sporadically, but never at 50% off. However, because the Broadway Theatre is so big, you could conceivably get rush tickets to Miss Saigon really close to showtime.

Also, as far as DEH tickets on StubHub are concerned, the lowest prices are usually for seats in the mezzanine. Just know that, because the Music Box is so small, the view from the last row of the mezzanine is still great.

Thanks on the plan check.  Any other comments welcome.  And yes, I know about the balcony view, as I saw it from the last row near sides, in December.  On the stubhub option, I will definitely be looking for the lowest price, and together, if possible.

People have said anywhere between 3-5 days before a show day. I got a ticket for Tuesday's show on Friday (aka 4 days before the show). The seats that were available were the unsold wheelchair companion seats and they popped up around 4:30pm (I doubt that's the time everyday but that happened to be the case for this past Friday). Tickets ranged from $135-$199.

And I thinkkkk (not positive though) that they release all those unsold wheelchair companion seats at once. So you can check if they've been released yet or not by looking under "wheelchair & transfer arm seating" just to see if there are any available. If there aren't any available it's likely they already released them to non-wheelchair users. Meaning there probably won't be anymore of those particular seats released via telecharge for that particular show time. (I THINK! Someone correct me if I'm wrong!!)

So I'd pick a show day and keep checking in those 5 days before the show on Telecharge.

(Btw a huge thanks to this message board and the members that shared the 4-day trick. I would not have known about it if it weren't for you guys so THANK YOU!)

For anyone interested in trying to get DEH tickets using the "4-day trick," this is an estimated release schedule:

Tickets for Tuesday release on Friday

Tickets for Wednesday release on Saturday 

Tickets for Thursday release on Sunday 

Tickets for Friday release on Monday

Tickets for Saturday release on Tuesday 

Tickets for Sunday release on Wednesday 

I've seen this vary by 1 day either before or after, but, generally, I believe that this schedule reflects the most common pattern.

Hey guys! "4-day" tickets for Thursday have just been released on telecharge for Thursday, as CT2NYC said. The mezzanine K1&2 seats are gone, since I saw them right when my subway started moving...then when I refreshed it once I got service again they were gone. But I refreshed again and did happen to grab the center mezzanine J113&114 tickets to bring my mom for $169+fees which ended up being $183 each! It was more than I was planning to spend but hey, it's front center mezzanine so I'm not going to complain.

Awesome! You can't tell from the seating chart, but that seat juts out beyond all the rows in front of it, so you're basically looking straight down the aisle, with no obstructions. It's a great view. Enjoy!

I thought it was becoming more infrequent, but it's been every day this week, so who knows? Also, recently, they've released not just $199 orchestra seats, but great $135 and $169 mezzanine seats, as well. Take a look at my release schedule above.

I haven't noticed a solid pattern, but they've definitely been releasing last-minute tickets, sometimes as late the day before, and, in the case of this past Friday, the day of. If these seats are wheelchair companion, transfer arm, and transfer arm companion seats, I'm thinking they might hold them longer because of Dolly!'s older demographic.

From what I've seen over the past few months, generally, tickets have been released in the afternoon, between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Of course, this isn't definitive, but a pretty good estimation. When someone buys a wheelchair or transfer arm (aisle seat with an armrest that lifts up) seat, there are seats set aside for people that accompany them. As it gets closer to the date of the performance, any of these seats that remain unsold  are released for purchase by anyone.

CT2NYC:  That makes sense.   Thank you.  One more question since you see to know these things.  How do these shows get cancellations?  They make such a big deal about no refunds or cancelations when you buy the tickets.. How does it happen?  


That's a good question, and one for which I don't have a good answer. From what I've gathered, though, it seems like they will do a refund if they're certain that they'll be able to resell the ticket, which is a safe assumption with shows like DEH and Dolly! Maybe someone else can add some insight on this?

This thread is great. I just sold my Oct 7 ticket (gotten by the tip off in this thread) to my friend who has been dying to see this show. He was so happy. Maybe we should change the title of this thread to "DEH tickets -- You Will Be Found?"

Also, what are wheelchair companion seats? 

Thanks!!!


From what I've seen over the past few months, generally, tickets have been released in the afternoon, between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Of course, this isn't definitive, but a pretty good estimation. When someone buys a wheelchair or transfer arm (aisle seat with an armrest that lifts up) seat, there are seats set aside for people that accompany them. As it gets closer to the date of the performance, any of these seats that remain unsold  are released for purchase by anyone.

 


 

"

Thank you for your help! I'll definitely be checking Telecharge obsessively in the days leading up to my visit. I'm looking to see DEH on a Wednesday, so hopefully that will help since it's a weekday.

Maybe they are released house seats or seats guaranteed for the creators that are released at certain times?   But those seats would all be prime locations.  And with these shows cancelations always tend to be the odd  row R on the extreme side.

For anyone who's curious, here are the seating charts for the Shubert (Dolly!) and the Music Box (DEH), with the wheelchair, transfer arm, and companion seats highlighted. They correspond directly with the last-minute seats released within the last week for both shows.

Yes, Ivy, I love it! I'm sure you've seen the unnecessary negativity on other threads hurled at people asking about getting DEH tickets for under $200. It's my goal to show that it's entirely possible, and, in the process, prove the naysayers wrong.

You are amazing, CT! 

A couple weeks ago I snatched a ticket for October 5, for 169, all thanks to your tip.

I went ahead and grabbed it, even though I'm not 100% sure I can make it. But if not I will do what ivy did and sell it and make someone's day. But I think I will be able to make it.

Thanks again.

I was at yesterday night's performance and Ben looked like he is slightly sick. He was coughing and using tissues on stage. I don't know if the cough was just "regular" coughing as one would say or a cold, but I would understand if he took the matinee off. He also didn't come out stage door (i didn't wait, my friend did though) and considering he usually comes out on special occasions (last show before break etc) I'm assuming he's not feeling well.

Yes, it was expensive.  $464 after taxes and fees.  But I wanted to see the original cast and I will only have one night free to see it.  Plus, I won't arrive early enough to wait in the cancellation line.  So it was worth it to me to guarantee a good seat.

The box office refunded me (I have to look, but think I lost the telecharge fees-nope. Just checked. Got a full refund). No alternative availability despite the dribble of tickets to telecharge (I think handling the waitlist would be too difficult). I'll have to keep refreshing the page I guess.



There was a line outside for cancellations. One of the staff thought he'd be out tonight given the severity of his cough and voice deterioration last night, but nothing official yet

People who jumped in the cancellation line as late as. 20 minutes til were able to get tickets ($199). I held out until 15 min before and there was a $109 ticket offered, so I took it (very last seat in the house in the left aisle mezzanine). So if you want to see the show, regardless of Ben, days he is out may be the good choice.
