Hadestown Rush/SRO Updates#1
Posted: 3/20/19 at 11:40am

Today it was announced that the much anticipated Hadestown will have a Digital Lottery, General Rush, and Standing Room policy. The digital lottery is a Lucky Seat so you enter in a week at a time and find out a day in advance. 

For the rush it's $42.50 cash/credit card when the Box Office opens (even for two show days) subject to availability and 2 per person.

For standing room, this will begin the performance after they are officially open, that would be Friday Friday, April 19 for the first SRO, and will be priced at $39. They are available when the show is sold out, cash/credit card, and 2 per person. 

And now we can use this to keep an update for rush reports/times and all that!


Update beginning June 13, after the Tony win:

The digital lottery has remained the same. Rush seats will be available at the Box Office starting at 5pm for evening performances and 12pm for matinees. For sold-out shows, standing-room tickets will also be sold immediately after. Limit 1 ticket per person for both rush and standing room tickets. 

 

Update beginning July 30:

The rush seats will no longer be available at the box office. All rush seats will be sold online through the Lucky Seat digital lottery (which has not changed). The standing-room ticket policy will remain the same, available at the box office for sold-out performances starting at 12pm for matinees and 5pm for evening performances. Standing-room tickets can be purchased with cash or debit/credit cards. Limit of 1 ticket per person.

Is there anyway of finding out how good the lottery seats are? Like it probably depends on the theater, but how good is Lucky Seat with lottery seats? Even if they are partial view, I do not care, I just want to see this show

I guess we'll all see where the lottery seats are.

For Amelie, the lottery rush seats were center orch front row which were GREAT.

For Springsteen, the lottery rush seats were in the balcony for $75.

Also worth noting the SRO in the Kerr is a great view as well. It’s such an intimate theatre that any seat should be great (save for the two-row balcony, which is hear is a bit high up).

Brenway, do you know if 5 people bought 2 tickets each or did they literally only sell about 5 Tix total?

Only four people bought tickets this morning. 2 people bought two tickets each, and 2 people bought a single ticket each. So, it was around six tickets in total.  And they only had scattered tickets from what I was told by the second person who had purchased rush tickets.

Came to rush with a friend for the Saturday, 3/23 shows. We are #3 and #4 in line at 5:20 am and are each getting two tickets. I asked the box office yesterday and they said they wouldn’t have rush tickets every day, that it depended, and that they couldn’t say how many tickets they would have.

The girl behind us got ticket #7 and I have no idea what happened after. We got four single seat tickets in the right/left orchestra in rows C and L. There were at least 40-something people in line at 10 am when the box office opened — curious how many rush seats were given out!

Sorry for the delay but ticket #7 was the last ticket I think, others were offered $99 box seats (no, I don't know how many or if others got deals). In case people cared ticket #7 got there at 6:30ish. 

Also wondering if we will get an update for today

I got an email from Lucky Seat at 4:35 PM today, saying that sOmeone hadn't claimed the tix they won in today's digital lottery, so I was next in line for the tix. It said that I had until 5 PM to claim the tix. Unfortunately, by the time I saw the email and read it, I was five minutes too late. I'm kicking myself right now.

I tried rushing today. Got there at 7pm but was still 6th in line!!!! By the time It was my turn they offered me one extreme partial view that would have a speaker in my view which I had to decline cause I needed two. Tracking what the ppl go in front of me it seems they offered 10 partial view seats for today. I have a feeling these seats are now predetermined bc if you check TM the morning before rushing most seats are not available at the end rows of the orchestra rows. The worst of those are probably the rush seats they offer.

We turned up at the rush line at 9:40- were about 40th in line so obviously didn’t get far! No standing room tix are going to be offered during previews apparently. We heard multiple people say it was sold out for tonight... but then at 3pm we noticed it was on TKTS for $112. At 6pm we went to TKTS and got 2 tickets which were in the front row, B 3-5. Great view of everything and WOW. It is a brilliant show.
