I didnt want to start new thread for one question, but I see that DEH showed up again at TKTS today. I'm hoping I can grab a ticket to see it for my one remaining slot when I'm in town next month either via TKTS or Stubhub at last minute or digital lottery (yeah, right). In case, it is available at TKTS, can anyone tell me where seats have tended to me via TKTS? I'd really like front orchestra for my second time seeing it. Thx.

I was at the show tonight and it was a full house upstairs so I am a little surprised to hear about TKTS. I had lucked out with the Broadway Week twofer. My seats were Center Mezzanine Row D and a perfect view of the stage. When we walked out, the 3 people behind me were discussing how to get cheap tickets for shows in general and the couple mentioned they had lucked out with last minute tickets today so I guess they could have meant TKTS. The guy they were talking to mentioned using Stub Hub.

On Wednesday (1/23) at around 4pm, I saw that Dear Evan Hansen was showing on the board at all 3 TKTS locations. I planned on running over there after work, but when I checked the app again at 5pm, they were all gone.

So yesterday (Thursday 1/24), I kept checking the app throughout the day with no luck. Then at 5pm, I saw that it was back up on the board, so I ran out of my office and hauled ass down Broadway to the booth lol. I got there by 5:15pm and secured a third row center orchestra seat (Row C Seat 102) for $121. Praise be.

I didn't see a single empty seat at the performance (all box seats and standing room were filled too).

That’s awesome. Fingers crossed that I manage something similar next month.

My only open slot of my upcoming trip is now a Saturday night so I suspect that if I want to see DEH, Ill be stalking Stubhub an hour before showtime. Fingers crossed for TKTS availability since shows seem to have more availability in February, but being realistic about my chances.

Related: Has it been announced which performances Andrew Barth Feldman is or isn't doing? The New York Times article about him said, at least at first, he would only be doing 5 shows a week. I assume he'll be out Wednesday and Saturday matinees -- what is the third performance he'll miss?

Yeah it’s possible. I hung out at TKTS this last Saturday and nothing came in last minute. But there were DEH tickets dropping in price most nights leading up to curtain

I have been checking the DEH website as well and I don't see this posted. Can you tell where they post this info so I know there to look for it? The Telecharge site still says that Michael performs the 2 matinees only.

The producers didn't want to overwhelm him since he is so young and this is his Broadway debut. The way I understand it is he is starting with 5 shows with the hopes of building up to more eventually. I think it was talked about in the NYT article.

That makes sense to have him do 5 shows a week to start.

I'm surprised the producers went the TKTS route as of late though. I thought they'd have discounts through telechargeoffers first.

I saw the show last week using the Broadway Week codes. I had checked several dates and it was really hard to find 2 seats together. Now they could have had a specific block set aside just for Broadway Week offers however, I'd understand if they only had a handful of tickets to sell on TKTS last minute.

Ironically, when I went to the box office 2 hours before show time to pick up my tickets, 3 different people walked up trying to buy seats. 1 asked for rush tickets. Answer was no. 1 asked for Broadway Week tickets and answer was no. And the 3rd asked for a future date. In all 3 cases, the agent was selling tickets for $179 and above.

TKTS doesn't require offering up any future-date seats at a discount ( other than maybe a few for the next day matinee ) and simply decide last-minute on a show by show basis whereas TelechargeOffers exposes possibly months of future performances to revenue-losing exposure.

The view from there is great. Unless you are in the very last seat, nothing at all is obstructed (and even then, I'd say it's limited to a very, very brief moment in Act 2). The only downfall to those seats is that it's easy to get distracted by the production booth that's set up in the box seats right in front of you.

The view from there is indeed good. I don’t recall even noticing the box seats. I just want to be closer this time. Doesn’t look like there’s that many seats available in the orchestra so more than likely I’ll end up going to StubHub as it probably won’t pop up at TKTS.

Your view will be great from there. Nothing should be obstructed at all. Mezz A is my favorite view for DEH. The projections are really good from there because you are pretty close but can still see the full stage and floor projections (which aren't visible from the orchestra).
