Sounds like approximately the same number of people today and yesterday at the comparable number of minutes before box office opening for both today and yesterday so I doubt the marathon has any effect.

If I got there at around 5:30 this coming Saturday, y'think I'd have good luck getting a seat?

5:30am should guarantee you a rush ticket.

A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Last Wednesday I got to nyc at 1pm and got a rush ticket for the evening show. It was obstructed view but completely fine.

Was going to try and rush this morning, but couldn't make it in. I'd imagine the line is pretty long today for Jenn, Geno & Alex's last shows?

It was definitely busy. I got there 3 hours before box office opened and was probably 14th or 15th. all standing room for the evening show had sold out, but settled for an excellent standing room spot for the matinee.

Has anyone rushed recently during the holiday season? Any insight on how early to arrive would be helpful!

Which dates are you looking to attend?  Need a seat or SRO is just fine?

I rushed a few Saturdays ago (12/7) and got to the box office around 7:30 and was second in line. By the time the box office opened, it was maybe 15 to 20 people? If I remember correctly, they told me they were selling 15 rush seats. When I went to the show I saw some people standing in the back so I am assuming they did sell standing room though I'm not sure how many.  I'm not sure if things have changed as the holidays are now close, but I hope this helps to some degree!

Thanks for the update. Do you recall what seat you got?

My ticket says Orchestra left, row C seat 15. It was partial view, but I could still see everything happening on stage! I just missed what was happening on one corner of the stage.

A week or two ago I rushed waitress, then made my way over to come from away at around 10:15 and there were still plenty of SRO tickets. This was a weekday matinee show.

Any idea if they wait until show is completely sold out before they sell standing room? I know that's how most shows are. There are still quite a few seats left for tomorrow's performance...still trying to decide if I should get up early and rush or if I should just go later in the morning in hopes for standing room.

Swung by about 10.15 on Friday morning and was able to get 2 rush tickets. But it was a windchill of about 16°, so I’m sure that factored into it.

Any Rush Updates recently during the Off Peak winter months? 

Looking to go this Wed matinee :)

For CFA, If I want standing room tickets, my understanding is that rush tickets have to sell out. I'm looking to sit together with my wife. If they only have single seat rush tickets by the time I'm up, can I just keep letting people cut me until they sell out and go to SRO?

Looking to rush for Wednesday or Thursday evening show this week.

Also, do they let you choose SRO spots generally?  If they fill SRO spots in order, would I just keep letting people cut me until the center SRO spots are available?

Sorry, visiting east coast not used to all this :)

Even #1 in line can get SRO each time I have done it.  Just get there early enough if you want 2 seats together.

I rushed DEH today (1/29/20) so was able to see the CFA line. The first
person didn’t arrive until a little after 9. When the box office opened there were only a handful of people in line.

Any recent experiences rushing this show? I'm planning on rushing it on 2/18 and I want to know what time I should get to the box office.

How many tickets do you need?

Require seats or is SRO good enough?

I'm trying for 2 non-sro seats but I'm not opposed to them not being next to eachother.
