I always air on the side of caution when I have purchased RUSH tickets, and get there early and 7:30am, and have never had an issue with being too late - usually the first one in line.

How was the line-up? I’m planning on rushing next Friday but was hoping to get there a bit later. 8 or 8:30pm.

FYI, I don't know if this always applies, but digital rush last night resulted in Row G side mezz, full view. I'm thinking that in-person rush, especially in the morning, may be more likely to garner orchestra locations.

Yes. Got Orchestea row D seats 13 and 15!

Only 10 people in line when BO opened. I assume everyone got tickets.

I also meant a fellow theatre geek from my hometown of Toronto. We are going to meet up when we get back home for some theatre!

I rushed yesterday (Wednesday 5/1). I got to the Box Office around 8:10 and was 10th in line. When the box office opened there were about 35/40 people in line. I got Orchestra row L seat 10 - full view.

Rushed today 5/4 for matinee. Got there at 8:10-5th in line. Row C orch Left seat 13.  Moved over during intermission but honestly not a bad seat! Plus it was a great show!

Has anyone done this on a Sunday? Has the later opening increased the line at all?

I got in line Saturday at 8AM, and there were already about 15 people in front of me. When the box office opened, there were at least another 20-30 behind me. There was literally one person working so the line was moving sooooooo slowly. When I made it actually inside the building at like 10:30, they announced the evening was sold out. I ended up just buying a full price ticket for like $70. 

We ain't no cheerleaders.

Just wanted to update everyone on my experience-I rushed yesterday (5/19). I arrived at the box office between 9:45 and 10 for a 12pm opening and was 3rd in line. Around 10:15 the first guy in line realized that the box office opened at 12 not 10 and left. By the time the box office opened there was a decent line. They only had single seats, but I was able to get B12 which is close and to the side, but was told that it was a full view seat. Would highly recommend!

I rushed Saturday (June 1), arrived at 9:00 and was 7th in line. A pair of people won the online lottery just a few minutes after 9:00 and left, so was 5th in line. Was able to get a pair of seats for the matinee. They were located left side orchestra, row G. The view wasn't listed as partial view, and we agreed that it was full view and could see everything very well.

I'm here 6/8 (Saturday morning), I arrived at 7:50am and I was #6 in line. About 30 minutes after I arrived a woman in front bought tickets to something else and left. It's 8:38am now and I'm #5 in line and there are about 10 people behind me.

 

Update: I got a sea in row P of the orchestra left side, full view

Got here at 8:55 on Wednesday 6/12 and would have been second in line, but by the time I went to the corner for a water bottle there was a group of ladies who had jumped on. I am here at 9:20 on a two-show Wednesday and am fifth in a line of 9 people. Hopefully a good sign, will update later with results.

UPDATE: I got seat A10, front row (!) all the way on the right but right up against the stage. Unfortunately I discovered here on the Board that Santino was out, and because I really wanted to see him I exchanged the ticket for next week's performance.

VERDICT: The entire Rush line was maybe 15-20 people when the box office opened at 10AM, but that was split roughly in half into two groups for the matinee and the evening performance. By the time I walked out of the box office by 10:15 there was no line at all, and I am sure they would have accommodated more rushers. I strongly recommend coming on a Wednesday if future weeks are like this one, because you won't be disappointed and will likely score a great seat.  The ladies in front of me came as a pack of four and seemed very happy with the results, so it might not just be scattered single seats.
