Do they do standing room too? And so you should get there latest 8 am?

I'm not sure it matters what the rush is like right now, since it is going to be extremely busy Thanksgiving week.

Yeah, that is one of the busiest weeks of the year and schools are out, so not sure anything happening now will guarantee a similar experience that week.

Standing room is sold only when the show is sold-out or nearly sold-out. The view from SRO is, IMO, better. They don't sell them until all rush tickets are sold. My last experience (a month ago) they also sold any remaining partial view seats at rush prices, then sold SRO.

Sundays are sometimes the best options since the box office doesn't open until noon. Arriving at 10am on a Sunday should guarantee a ticket, but probably not during Thanksgiving week.

Just rushed it this morning. Got to the theater at 10:30AM for the 3:00 show. I was the 10th person in line. Box office opened at 12:00, and I was able to get a standing room ticket for $32. They only had one rush ticket left by the time I got to the front of the line, and it was partial view.

You must have been right behind me. I was 7th in line. Also got SRO since I prefer it over the rush seats.

Yeah, there are 10 seated and 20 standing for every show. Seated definately go first. Last saturday I'm pretty sure everyone got one or another.

For what it's worth, I was very happy with the veiw from my rush seat. Partial view but you miss nothing plot wise. I have also done standing room and found it a great experience too. I think it just comes down to whether or not you're able to do standing, not everyone is.

 

I would recommend 8 if you're comfortable with rush or SRO. If you need rush, I would add at least an hour to that.

So they first do the regular rush tickets and sell standing room after? So like 40ish tickets? Would those be hard to get even during the week of Thanksgiving but not actually Thanksgiving or black Friday day?

Rushed today, 28 November '18. Came at 8.54 and was surprised to be only 2nd in line! More people came and at 9.30 the line was only maybe 10 people. When the box office opened it was about 15. I took the evening show, A8 seat. The first person who arrived got an orchestra seat for the matinee.

They also sell any remaining partial view seats as rush seats the day of. So there might be more rush tickets available depending on availability.

Anyone have any more recent experience? Im thinking of rushing tomorrow. Is 8:30 a good time or because of it being a busy time should I plan for earlier?

Thank you for your help.

Depends on whether or not you want to be sure to get a seat or if you're fine simply getting SRO.

I'd plan to come earlier just because of the holiday week(end). If you can make it by 7am you should be ok, especially if you don't mind SRO.

I got in line at 8am 2 days ago and was one of the last to get SRO. I'd aim for 7/7.30am to be safe.

Did the Rush today (2/2/19) for the 2:00 matinee show. Got in line at about 9:20 am. There were twenty-five folks in front of us. By the time the box office opened (10:00), there may have been 55-60 people in line total. By the time we got to the ticket window, they had no more Rush seating tickets left. All that was available was Standing Room. We got two tickets, standing spots 103 & 104, Center Orchestra and it was an excellent view. If you’re looking to get seats from the Rush sales, it would be a good stroke of business to get there before 8:30 at the latest I would think.

I may have gotten lucky, but last week I walked up to the box office on a whim, about a little more than an hour before the show, and asked for rush and was able to snag a seat (he even asked how many I wanted, so they had at least 2).  I was very surprised!

If you went during a week night, they typically sell any left over partial view seats as rush if they have them. Always easier to rush during the week for CFA.

I rushed this morning (wed, 2 show day). Got into line at 9:25, i was maybe 15 people back. Got a matinee ticket front row all the way house right. I think they were out of pairs by the time I got up, but I loved my single seat. Slightly partial view, I really just missed the stage left half of the orchestra.
