MOULIN ROUGE SRO UPDATES#26

broadwayboy222 said: "I generally do not like to be a voice of “negative” or “complaining” commentary here, or come across as ungrateful, but come on. I know the two are vastly different shows, and in different theaters, but I truly hope they do not discontinue the SRO policy. To Kill A Mockingbird also has actors utilizing the aisles for the show and there was nothing unsafe about those actors walking around and entering behind us in the SRO section. Between a nearly impossible to win lottery, and an absolutely absurd price of 90.00 being the least expensive tickets available, that many run of the mill people cannot afford, there’s no reason they shouldn’t be able to offer a more affordable option."

They don't owe you a thing, and want to make the most money possible. That is the point of a business.

MOULIN ROUGE SRO UPDATES#27
Posted: 8/10/19 at 11:44pm

Ok. I realize that SRO is a privilege, the theatre/production doesn’t have to offer it

But that was a seriously stressful experience. They wouldn’t sell SRO till 8PM (that is when someone agreed to buy the last ticket, which by that point had undergone three price reductions). When i go to the theatre, I like to have the time to soak it in and adjust to my surroundings.

SRO does not offer a good view of the set(I couldn’t see the Elephant or Windmill that I found so interesting in Boston) Overall, i enjoyed the Broadway production significantly more than the early preview I saw in Boston.

If they had sold it 10-15 mins sooner, I would say it would be worth the $50

 

i can totally understand why they are hesitant to announce a permanent SRO policy.   This show makes allot of use of the isle/ back of house and I can see how it can be a logistical nightmare 

 

PS they did not sell Matinee SRO

If the only part that you’re missing in standing room is the elephant and the wind mill, you’re not missing much. After The performance there is ample time to hang around the theater and look at the various details in place. You cannot go into the can can area but You can walk all around the rest of the area and take as many pictures as you want. Usually in theaters it seems like they are trying to shoo you out after the orchestra Finishes playing. There were a bunch of us taking pictures after that time and I am sure that eventually they say you need to leave but I left before that time.

MOULIN ROUGE SRO UPDATES#31
Posted: 8/20/19 at 1:41pm
I did SRO last week. I got to the box office around 2:30 and there’s was no line, and the box office employee told me they hadn’t started selling them yet, but I should check back at 3pm. So I came back right at 3 and they sold me the first two SRO tickets. Nobody was behind me in line.

As someone above said, you can’t see the Elephant or the windmill, but you can go down the aisle and take a look at them before the show, during intermission or after the show. Otherwise the view is perfect. And it’s fun to have the actors behind you waiting to come down the aisle. At one point Danny Burtsein decided to play around by sneaking right up next to us (seemingly in character) and leaned on the railing with us.

Posted: 9/12/19 at 1:05pm

We did the Saturday matinee of Labor Day Weekend - got there between 8-8:30, and there was only one person in line. More trickled in, but a lot were trying to buy regular tickets. The box office dealt with that until they had the official word of how many SRO they had, and they sold 9 to the line around 10:25.

When you say they sold 9, do you mean that's how many they had available? Or were there only 9 people waiting?

It sounds like they sold only 9 standing-room spots that day.

Followup: Can you buy 2 standing-room tickets (like most shows) or is it limited to 1 per person (like ''Hadestown'' )?

Nine is the amount of spots they have for SRO. Most days its less as family members use those often.

Sorry if this has been answered, the only person who posted about times, etc., was a couple weeks ago.  If the show is sold out for tomorrow, would they sell the standing room when the box office opens or do they still wait till a few hours before the show?

Posted: 9/14/19 at 11:20am

I did SRO for the matinee today Saturday 9/14.  I got to the box office at 9:15am and was 2nd in line.  They gave out 9 spots total but the box office guy said that sometimes it's less if the cast members request them.  They do not start selling them until there are enough people to take all standing room spots or 10:30am(for the mat) whichever comes first.  All slots were taken by 10:20am and we were sold them then.  When I left 2 people were in line for the evening SRO.  The tricky thing with that is they go on sale at 3pm or when they have enough people in line to sell them all.  So sounds like evenings could be tricky.

@Chris1978: thank you for this note — this is extremely helpful!

Any updates on 09/14 evening show tonight? Ticketmaster has (4) seats still up for grabs, so I am curious if they are selling SRO before then...

I’m here today and the only one waiting. The main guy came out and said that he has 5 tickets. I’m taking 1 so essentially the next two people could claim the rest.

He’ll sell either at 2:30 or when there’s a line! Early in the week has better odds I’ve heard.

For what it's worth:

I passed by the theatre on Sunday morning around 10am (box office opened at noon, I presume).

There was already a line of probably 10-15 people. If the posers above are correct about them only selling 9 spots, then I'd imagine most of the people in that line didn't get in.

Ok. I just got to the theatre at around 9:30 am and I’m 6th in line. Not sure if everybody here is waiting on standing room only but I’m crossing my fingers they will have more than 5 tickets!!!

I happened to be at the box office yesterday to buy regular tickets and two people were buying SRO at about 11:15 am for (I believe?) the evening show.  There wasn't any line and I'm not sure how many tickets were available, but it sounded like they'd just become available at that hour, as one of the guys had been standing around outside.

Did you end up getting a standing room only ticket?

————————-

Update: Thursday, October 24

I am currently 6th in line for the matinee show. Been waiting since 9:05am. It seems the others ahead of me have been waiting much longer. Was told that none of the cast members are taking SRO tickets. As of 9:38am, there are 2 SRO tickets available for the 2pm matinee show. No one seems to be waiting for the evening show, at least not yet.

Update: 9:46am 7 people joined for the regular tickets. One person joined behind me and is grabbing the last two tickets. All SRO tickets for the matinee show have been claimed. One person is waiting for the evening show which leaves 2 or 3 SRO tickets left.

Update: 10:01am Looks like the person waiting for the evening show has left.
