I know! Thank you! I slept in the cancellation line in June and July when it was around 50 people, so this is a nice change lol.

Maybe people who were interested in doing it recently are waiting for next week for Brandon to come in now that his start date has been officially announced.

it's literally just a Vertical Parking Garage, nothing extraordinary, not even a fancy car. We suspect some people hadn't seen one before.  No lottery winners here, one premium ticket offered but no one bit.

I think they put the premium ticket on Ticketmaster. Nice seat.

I heard that the last person in line yesterday (Thursday) to get tix was 12th in line (he arrived 3pm for the 7pm show).  He got 7th row center for $199.  Not too shabby!  There was a SRO ticket left after that.  When I went last Saturday, I was 12th in line (got there 650am for the 2pm matinee). The last tix went to #10th in line.  #11 bought the single SRO ticket.  For me, it was 7 hours of waiting to no avail.

I arrived at 6:30 am on Saturday and was 4th in line, the others having arrived at 5:45 and 6:00 am.  The next folks showed up at 7:30. At 10:00 am premium tickets were offered, but only 1 person in line wanted a pair. At 10:15am RRT staff cut off the line at 20 (regardless of how many tickets are wanted) and told the others after 20 to leave and come back at 5:30. I'm not sure what happened to them.

For those concerned about the heat, it is cool in the shade and a nice breeze comes through. If you are the first 20, you will be in the shade. I got more of a sweat waiting in the subway for ten minutes than sitting here for the last 4 hours.

 

*Update*

At least 11 of us got in. There could have been more but I'm not positive. Chris Jackson and Oak were out for the performance. Sydney was Burr.

Conclusion from the Thursday 8/18 line.  I had started at 7am and I got the third ticket given out at 6pm.  I'm not sure what happened after that, but it sounds like they gave out a decent amount. I got F106, a fantastic seat for an excellent performance.  Burr, Washington, Angelica, and George were my favorites.  I really wanted to like Michael as Hamilton. I wasn't totally convinced with his acting but he grew on me and I enjoyed his voice.  

Best of luck to all those going to brave the line! It really is quite fun.

Did you see Lexi as Eliza? How was she? I haven't been hearing that much about her performance.

I did!  I thought she did a fine job. I wasn't blown away but not disappointed either. I felt maybe she could have expressed greater emotion with some of the more serious scenes but her voice was nice.

Thanks! I never got to see Phillipa in the role (which I'm still kind of bitter about) but I'm seeing the show in a few months so I'm just really curious about Lexi's performance because Eliza is currently my favorite character in the musical.

How's the line been lately? I'm curious to see if there have been more people since Brandon Victor Dixon started as Burr [also since they announced Renee's departure Hamilton Cancellation Line ]

Tuesday the show is 7, you might need to get there earlier.  We tried Tuesday the week before and when we got there at four we were 13 + 14.

Wednesdays are tricky with the 2 shows. My suggestion would be to go as early in the morning as you can if the matinee is an option (I passed the line last Wednesday at 7am and there were 6 people). If you don't get matinee tickets, don't even bother going until 5:30- the ushers/police won't establish a clear line until then even if people have been waiting all day, it's all about the luck of where you are standing outside the box office when they create the line (they have been known to start it on different sides of the box office from Wednesday to Wednesday (evening). AM line starts along wall to the right of the box office when facing the theatre (with the steps). Good Luck!! :)
