Still very confused on the pricing structure. How does rear orchestra pricing equal front balcony? Don’t know how the view will be, but glad I got fed orchestra seats over the alternative. I’ve given up on paying less for Balcony seats that only add to my fear of heights.

Dress Circle Row G $199 on a Wednesday in August. Probably paid too much, but I didn't even have a code when we started, so I'm happy just to get decent tickets.

There's a seating chart posted on page #23 of the other thread, but it does not show the end seat numbers.  If someone sees that somewhere, please post it here.

In have a question for someone to answer. Without a physical/email ticket how can one even resell on StubHub etc.? TM states that we can either pick up ticket at BO with ID and credit card OR a virtual ticket is sent to your phone a few days prior to the performance. I don't understand how with these restrictions any tickets get to be resold to strangers. Please enlighten me Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Seating/Pricing Thread

May 30th, ORCHL, Row Q,  Seat 5-5,  were considered Premium Seating.    It is a strange seat number but the diagram when I brought it had me just off the center aisle.  Anyone else get this strange seat number?

@lefty. That’s saying you only have seats 5. If you ordered more it would be OrchL Q-5-9 etc

I bought two single seats and in my haste to complete the orders. I noticed that one order was Will Call and the other Mobile. I wanted both to be Will Call so I was able to change the delivery method in my account. The Mobile order info said that the tickets can be accessed through your account and also printed at home. If it is a PDF they could be emailed to someone. I also think that tickets can be transferred as well. Unfortunately the only way to really knock down the scalpers is to make all tickets Will Call. They did this with a Springsteen show I attended in the past (Giants Stadium). I thought it would be a nightmare if 50,000+ people had to all pick up their tickets at the box office but it was very well organized and pretty painless.

@BroadwayNYC2.  So they no longer give you a separate ticket for each seat on Broadway, I am just curious for my future buys?

Q5-5 is not your seat nor ticket. Your seat is Q5 but order number is Q5-5. If you have 3 seats your order would be Q5-9, with three tickets (Q5, Q7, Q9)

Have to ask sacteach...why buy all of those tickets if you are not sure they will get used?
"

I only saw starting numbers (1, 2, 101, etc) but no ending numbers for each row. If you can tell me where to find that, I would really appreciate it.

As for buying tickets, at this point I know a lot of people that said they want to go, but it's so far out that no one can fully commit at this time. I'd rather have them and make them available to my friends at regular price instead of third-party prices, but the assurance of being able to get them refunded if it turns out that people can't go was a huge factor. If there were no refund option, I would have just bought two and my friends would be on their own to get tickets.

Go over to the other thread. It is posted about 3 pages before the last page.


"

I just scrolled through every page (starting at 23) and I don't see it... page 23 has the picture that I've seen floating around that shows the starting number (1, 2, 101) but I can't find anything that shows the last number in each row. Can you please clarify what page number (or even post number) you are referencing? Thank you!

Personally i wouldn't be surprised if the box office and StubHub have some sort of deal with each other.  note this is just a thought/opinion.

This is a link for a google search I ran and found a seating chart that gives seat number ranges for each section. The image you might be looking for is the 6th image populated (for me). If you hover over the image, you will see that it is from TM but if you try to follow that link, it just takes you to the Cursed Child play page. I believe they are adding seats as I, along with many others, have been assigned seats outside of the ranges given in the image. If you are more comfortable running the search yourself, I just searched "lyric theater seating chart ticketmaster"

Hope this helps

That's the seating chart from Paramour and On the Town. It doesn't reflect the changes being made for Harry Potter.

I realize that it is the Lyric and Paramour was the last show there, but did anyone else’s charge go through and post as Cirque?  I got the TM confirmation, but still think that is weird unless that is how the Lyric is still processing ticket orders.

Wanted to bring this thread back and see people’s new results. I’m seeing people got rear orch for $40 which is a little annoying since I got row V for $165.

I was thinking the same thing! I really hope I didn't just spend a ton of money on seats i could have gotten for $40.

I'm one of the people who got rear orchestra for $40.  My seat is X35, which I have to assume is the last seat in the row.  I'm also assuming for that price that it has to be partial view (although it didn't say anything about that during the purchase process).

How are people getting $40 tickets? That option is grayed out for me, for multiple dates.

By the time I quit trying to load my page on my PC (as Ticketmaster suggested) and went through my phone (45 min), the only seats available for the limited time Ill be in NYC were $120/part and higher. I can't afford those prices. I'm frustrated that I followed Ticketmaster's rec and it probably cost me the chance to see HP.

Ended up getting $40 row F balcony on March 10, 2019. Since that's the last day on sale and will be right about a year since it starts, maybe the last day of the original cast?!?
