The SRO section was right at the back of the orchestra so occasionally you couldn't see the cast members if they were on the scaffolding of the set but that was only for a second and you didn't miss anything but a few words."

 

Congrats on getting a SRO ticket, what a great value! What time did you go?

That’s really amazing... What time did you go and what time did you get your tickets? Trying to see if I can do this some time next week.

Thread seems a bit inactive, so not sure if anyone's still curious, but
For today's 7pm (Nov 19) show, I showed up around 6pm and I didn't even realize initially that there was a cancellation line; there was just 1 girl standing near the steps. Asked the box office; after I walked out there were 5 people in line. Around 6:55, the cancellation line started moving. I believe only the first girl got a seat; everyone else (including me) took $40 standing spots

Jennie Harney-Fleming (not Mandy Gonalez) was in for Angelica

Are they still selling SRO tickets? Planning on going Saturday, and I really hope they’re available.

I recently tried for SRO tickets, but was told both by security monitoring the cancellation line and by the box office that they no longer sell SRO tickets. They indicated there was a miniscule possibility that a cast member would not use access to SRO that they would sell very last minute, but that it was highly unlikely and rarely happened. I decided to wait it out, unsuccessfully - and just FYI the security guy was completely unhelpful once the process of selling cancellation tickets began (since you wait in the same line) - never communicated to us about SRO at all.

I got standing room about 2 weeks ago on Saturday matinee from the cancellation line.

Since there hasn’t been a lot of SRO experiences on here, I hope my experience will be helpful:

I got SRO on a Friday night in late August. I would recommend coming at least 45mins before the show starts cause I arrived 7:30pm for 8pm show. At 730pm they started to let in patrons and there were too many lines so I couldn’t find the cancellation line. I went to the box office and was stop by security guard who told me: we don’t have SRO, we have cancellation, be prepare to pay $225.

The cancellation line is the back line on the stairs. There were 6people ahead of me, I believe mostly tourists who told me they got there 7pm.

At around 745pm they started to take people from the cancellation line in to the box office to purchase cancellation tickets. There was 1 girl behind me who I had started to chat with and she was a tourist wanting in for the show, so I mention to her that I was looking for SRO & they would probably call her in before me. Which is what happen, when they got to my turn I told the same security guard from before that I wanted SRO & he stop me from entering and took in the girl. At around 755pm the guard came and told me to go to 1st box office. I ask for SRO & paid $40 & got left Center SRO.

The girl who was behind me was also offered SRO & we stood with 2 others who were friends of the actor playing Aaron Burr. At the beginning of Act 2 we were offer front mezz seats. Great experience overall!

Be prepare to deal with waiting for something not guarantee and dealing with rude guards. Over a year ago I stop by the box office and they denied having SRO so nobody is gonna guarantee that they still have it.

I would also suggest not trying during holidays or when new cast members join cause their family and friends are more likely to want to come & use SRO.

Weekdays will probably be easier but you also want to check on ticketmaster that the show looks like it gonna sell out. Hope this helps & good luck!
