Apologies if there's already a thread on this (I couldn't find one), but has anyone rushed A CHRISTMAS CAROL recently? Any reports would be helpful.

There might be some comments in the previews thread, but in any case - this past Sunday evening I stopped by the box office at maybe 5:15 or so and was able to get a seat for the 7:00 performance.  Last row of the orchestra, house right - but the Lyceum is so small (smaller than I remember!) and the stage is thrust out and fairly immersive so it's still a great seat.

Last Saturday (10/23) I went to the box office at around 1:15pm and got a rush ticket to the evening show. Side orchestra, row E, nice seat.

Anyone rushed recently? Wondering if it's busier now that Christmas is approaching.

I rushed yesterday, 12/14. Arrived around 845am and was 4th in line. Got row A 2 in left orchestra and 2 on the right for the matinee. It was somewhat partial view with actors blocking each other when you are up that close but otherwise pretty solid seats.

Was partial view printed on the tickets?  Which seat numbers were you given?

if this helps, i got a rush ticket yesterday (12/18) at 12pm for the 2pm matinee. seat was A8 & the box office person told me it was the last full view rush ticket so the 1st row seats are not being stamp as partial view. like someone mention, your view sometimes gets block from the backs of actors but its exciting to be so close up to the action.

You're so lucky! I think that's where my friend sat too last week when she did rush.

She told me she was picked by Scrooge to go onstage to help him bring some food!!!! The jelly cake I believe or some pie? Hopefully you were picked too!

Yes! A1 is a first row aisle seat, pretty much as close to the stage as it’s possible to get. Not the best view in the house, but not terrible and you really get involved in the production. 100% worth it in my book. Also it’s such a magical production. Definitely go if you’re on the fence about it and can get rush tickets.

And yes! Scrooge picked me to help bring out the Christmas pudding. He probably couldn’t have picked anyone more excited about it honestly. I’m still on cloud nine. It was awesome.
