Has the show been selling out? I still see it on TKTS most nights. The Jacobs is equipped for standing room.
Would love a recent rush report!
GeorgeandDot said: "Apparently the rush seats are EXTREMELY partial view. I'd just spend a little bit more money and buy a full view seat in the mezz for this one."Agreed. It was rough. Could only see about 1/3 of the stage. Missed A LOT. 2nd in line Sunday, 4th of November at 10am. Orch G 16 & 18.
Just to add my 2 cents - it's interesting to hear many people prefer house left, while I'm very thankful to have had house right when I saw it. While you miss the staircase, that isn't much compared to what house left may miss as there's the doorway, kitchen sink/window, and Maggie Faraway parked in your direct line of site for all of Act 1.The box office also offers semi-confirms my theory on this, as partial view seats in the first few rows house left are only $59, as where they're $79 for the same seats on house right.
Would it be safer to rush on a Saturday or a Sunday? Seems like folks don't line up at the crack of dawn for this one.
I rushed Saturday, 11/10, arrived at 7 and was first in line. Next person arrived at 8. A few more trickled in between 8 and 9 with the majority arriving between 9 and 10. By the time the box office opened I would estimate 25-30 people in line. I got Orch G 16 & 18. Yes, you do miss the staircase, a bit of the action on the right and you also miss the full view of this gorgeous set. Overall, I did not feel this took away from the intensity of the play and for the price was very happy I was able to see it.
I can't speak to the view from the partial view rush seats (I had an aisle seat on the house left side of the orchestra through Audience Rewards), but after seeing the show I think I would rather sit house left if I had a partial view seat. I would definitely want to see the staircase and would want a clear view of that side of the stage during the final scene in particular. (There's also a doorway that I assume isn't visible from the very far side seats of house right.)
I rushed on Sat 11/17. I was the first one there at 8:15am, and then it seemed like everyone else showed up in the next hour. 20-30 total in line. I got Row A front row, and there was a chair on stage blocking much of my view in the first and third acts. It was annoying, but I couldn't beat the price and seeing the action so close up. It's an incredible play.
Definitely upgrade! I was in A2, and my friend was in A4. I think A2 has less blockage from the chair on stage, and it is surreal to see it from so close up. Worth the $30! I'll definitely be coming back to see the show again.
Any recent reports? Do they offer rush if the show is sold out?
Here I Am said: "Does anybody know if they sell standing room tickets even when the show isnt sold out? Id honestly much rather stand for this show than be cramped in a tiny seat with no leg room for over three hours."I highly doubt it, though what is the rule about choosing to stand in the area behind the Orchestra even if you have a ticketed-seat?
Got rush tickets on a weekday around noon!
