Has anyone rushed What the Constitution Means to Me? Any reports on how long the lines have been/a reasonable time to show up?

I rushed last Wednesday. Got in line at 9:30AM and was about 5th in line. Easily got a ticket. Rush seats are in the front row!

I showed up at 10:15 and got two rush tickets.  I think it's a bit. of a hidden gem.  Enjoyed it at NYTW, looking forward to seeing it again!

I’m assuming the stage isn’t high?  

Anyone rush on sat for a matinee? Time to get there?

I went to check just before noon today (5/2) and was able to get rush for tonight’s show (front row!). The guy at the box office was really nice and said that I got the last one.

Is the stage low enough for a good view?

In the first or second week of previews I went to the box office at 6pm to ask about their rush policy and see if they had any rush tickets left. I got two $40 tickets in the far-side, last-row orchestra, but the Hayes is small so it was still a great view. Maybe their policy has changed, but this show isn't that popular, so you can probably still do the same now. Such a steal.

I rushed today. and got there around 8:20ish. I was the first person there and no one else arrived until around a little before 9:30. By the time the box office opened there were four of us.

I rushed the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend and got to the box office around 11:15am after buying evening rush for The Prom. I was 12th in line and got the last seat. There were a bunch of people behind me who didn’t get a ticket. There was a lady who thought she was buying evening rush and not matinee and she returned her tickets which is how there was still a single seat available by the time it got to me. I think the first people said they got there at 10:15am?

I plan on rushing this Sunday. The Hayes box office opens at noon on Sundays, but since the performance is being moved up to 1 for the Tonys, should I assume that the box office will open earlier? enlightened

EDIT: Don't need to rush, that performance is up on TDF!

I rushed about a week ago on June 8 (Saturday) and got there at 10 am with about 15 people in front of me. We heard there were no single seats left for the evening show when there were about 5 people in front of us, but we were still able to snag 4 seats for the evening. I got L 14 and even though none of us were sitting together, we were all sitting behind each other.

Figured I'd give a rush update here! I got to the box office this morning around 9:40 am and there were about 12-15 people in front of me. The woman two spots ahead of me in line was told they'd sold out of rush for the Wednesday evening show, which is the only one I could've made, although it seemed as if they still had availability for the matinee. 

So I'd say to be safe on a double-show day, it's probably best to try and get there no later than 9 am, maybe 9:15 latest!

I got here at 8:50 today and am around 12th in line. I’m surprised but still expecting to get a ticket. Just thought I’d update if anyone is planning on coming later.

Update from today's rush - 7/9.

I was third in line at when I arrived at 8:23am. By 8:30, 1 more had joined. At 9:43, we had 8 in line. Box office opened at 10am. I had to leave after I got my ticket, so can't say how many were available, but they had at least 7 seats (1 person needed a solo seat). They are all front row :)

I rushed the same day-- I got there at 12:15 and I got a ticket. I was in the last row on the end in the orchestra. Was a fine seat :)

They must sell a lot of rush, then! The entire front row was rush - I was center front. :)

Any updates? I have a friend who wants to rush Tuesday, but not get there before 9:30. FWIW I think that’s a bit picky.

Not sure where to put this, if this isn’t a good spot I can definitely start a new thread, but is there a stagedoor for this show and does Heidi usually come out?
