Not a shocker, but the prices on StubHub are already crazy.

And THAT is what made me totally okay with the price I paid!

I am still at a massive loss as to how exactly they added 5 rows to dress circle from the standard seating chart. Not only that but it seems these new seats are the ones that people were consistently getting at the $20 price point. What did they do, knock out the back wall and add in 5 rows that will be obstructed by the balcony over head? Or did they build out the front further?

I was on standby. Got a code at around 1:15pm(CT). Purchased Dress Circle Row A Seats 10-12 for April 21. Each was $378 before a bajillion dollars in Ticketmaster fees (added about $55 more total). 

Edit: by each I mean $378 for both shows so $189 per part.

Well, I just gave back my tickets. It was just too much for me to spend, after my daughter opted out.

Sad to say, I forfeited my code by doing that.

If anyone is interested, my seats were for July 29 (Sunday), Row X in orchestra, $165 each.

I was able to get a refund through the Ticketmaster chat function. It really beats being on hold on the phone.

Okay, so I really want LF or RF in my dreams.  Looks like they are the rows A-J.  So frustrated that they wouldn't let us select more specific seating areas.

I look forward to meeting you in eight months, Cape!  And I agree, I just felt like I needed to snap up what I could as I had been through many dates before those hit.

I wonder if they'll also refund the outrageous fees if we return our tickets?  My hunch is that those are non-refundable.

This was just a whole lot of crazy.

I got Orchestra H Left - way to the side.  Not at all the tickets I wanted.  In fact, I hate them.  But every time I released them I got the exact same ones back, even on different dates.   It's like they were pre-assigned to me!  $199 each.

Hey! I realized that since they don't have shows on Mondays and Tuesdays, my July 29th show is the last one before both Neville AND Harry's Birthdays! ...........god I'm a nerd.

I’m finding this to be extremely cost prohibitive and discouraging. I was on standby and didn’t get my access code until 2:00PM EST. I’ve been trying continuously for the past hour and a half but can only find $199 tix. For 2 tickets plus all the outrageous surcharges it comes to $851.....unaffordable!

That date was my first choice, also.  The calendar just shows nothing.

Strange, no? I went for Mother’s Day and got amazing seats. The Harry Potter understudy was on in London when I saw it, so fingers crossed all the leads are performing in May!

For August 29th, I have 6 seats in the center of row K dress circle. They were $165. I'm concerned that they are going to be partial considering the low price point of the seats behind...

Those first couple Wednesday previews is not a double header. That week is Tuesday/Wednesday, Thursday/Friday, and marathon Saturday.

Mother's Day was sold out when I was able to check at my 12:00 PM time slot.

I got my code at 2:18pm (ET).  I couldn't find 2 tickets at all for the dates I wanted, so I ended up doing 1 ticket for $80 each part on July 22.  I'm in Balc Row E.  I hope I am able to go (I live in LA).  Otherwise I will have to sell them.  All the $20-$40 tickets were completely sold out.

Got a code at 3:55pm and was able to get tickets for wed 10/3. Balcony row a 101-103 for 165 a piece. I wish I was able to get the cheaper seats but front row balcony on the aisle should be a good seat so I can’t complain. I wish they had a function where you could enter a price range and search available dates with that range

Pecan Sandies, that is weird. When the site first opened at 11:00 you had to open the wheelchair access tab to see the prices for everything. (I kimd of stumbled on that) After about 15 minutes you could use the "select price" function. I was able to find tickets by price. However, when I looked for the 70.00 tix it would only come up with mid to rear orchestra seats.

Just give the world Love.

Row D in the Orchestra? Those should be great seats, then.
