In line right now waiting for a SRO ticket. Started waiting in line since 9:05am. There are 5 people ahead of me. Was just told that I will get the sixth SRO matinee ticket. All 9 SRO tickets will be available. Tickets will be sold once another person or two joins the line.

For matinees it sounds like they sell tickets when the box office first open (and if they're sold out), what exactly is the current situation with SRO to evening shows? Is it also first thing in the morning? Or just when they sell out? Or another designated time later in the day? Thanks!!

When I went, they started the evening SRO line after all 9 of the matinee spots were taken.  They would sell them either at 2:30pm or after there were enough people in line to fill 9 spots.

Is the SRO policy 2 tickets per person in line or just 1 ticket per person?

FYI- they are definitely selling these even when the show is not sold out. I was confused when the box office treasurer told me they were all sold out of SRO but offered me 99 dollar seats. Can they do this? Isn’t SRO usually reserved for sold out shows?

Some shows do sell SRO even if they aren’t sold out (Circle in the Square has historically done it for many of their tenants). So it wouldn’t totally surprise me. However, it’s also possible that they WERE sold out when they sold SRO, then more tickets popped up throughout the day. And the latter seems a bit more likely given this show’s ticket sales.

Has anyone tried SRO for today (11/08)? I was thinking of going during lunch, but it seems to be random when they are available!

Just to add balance.. I was personally not impressed. Didn't help that Danny was out for the show that I saw but I just found all the modern pop songs super distracting. But that's me.  Sound was mixed at rock concert levels... wayyyy too amplified for Broadway. But I know they are trying to do something different. 

Set design is amazing, and of course  Aaron and Karen are both amazing.

''I just found all the modern pop songs super distracting.''

Just out of curiosity, had you ever seen the 2001 movie of ''Moulin Rouge''? The whole conceit of it (and the stage version) is that it's an old-fashioned love story done with modern pop songs. Were you expecting an original period score? Anyway, I bet the modern pop songs are a major reason for its success, and the updated playlist, which now includes Lady Gaga, Adele, Rihanna, etc., has actually introduced a new generation to ''Moulin Rouge!''
