Anyone get tickets to The Best Man from the TKTS booth or by rushing recently? Planning to catch a Sunday matinee before it closes...curious to know the types of seats people are getting from both options. Also not sure if the show has been selling better since Vidal's passing.

I was on line for One Man Two Guvnors today I arrived at 9 am and there was no one even in line for Best Man yet. At about 9:30 4 people were there. I think the entire rush line by 10 am was maybe 6 people

I walked up to the box office at about 4:30 two weeks ago (I believe it was a Tuesday) and my friend and I were both able to get rush seats.
A little swash, a bit of buckle - you'll love it more than bread.

We were in the mezz row G, I believe, the first two seats on the aisle, but they were fantastic.

I easily got a rush ticket Saturday afternoon around 11:30 in the box. The mezz was pretty open on the sides, though, so it's easy to move to a seat that's not partial view.

My aunt went to TKTS about 3 weeks ago and got good seats (not sure where they were located), but she got tickets so you should be fine :)

Don't see any rush policy here for "The Best Man"

Is it a Student Rush or general?

According to broadwayforbrokepeople.com it's a student rush. However when I was on line for One Man Two Guvnors rush it didn't look to me that everyone in the rush line was a student.

I was on the TKTS line yesterday for the Once matinee, and saw that The Best Man was listed for 50%.
When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad
