The last time I attended a tribute like this was for Gower Champion many years ago. I recall just walking into the theater without a ticket. However, I no longer trust my memory after my stroke.Will there be tickets sold for the Herman tribute next month?
Was wondering this as well and how early should one plan on arriving?
Dollypop...I've never met you, but I’ve enjoyed reading your posts over the years.I hope, come hell or high water, you’re able to get yourself into the Jerry Herman tribute!

That's a great question. Were there tickets sold for the Harold Prince tribute a few weeks ago? I'd imagine the process might be similar? I've never gone to any of these special events before.
If it’s any help to anyone, people waited outside the Majestic for about an hour to get into the Prince memorial. No tickets unless the family and friends organizing had reserved a seat for you already. While there were a lot of invited guests, there was ample space for everyone who wanted to be there.
I'm a little surprised this isn't at the St. James.

I've gone to a couple of these in the past, and usually there is no charge, and no tickets to reserve. You just show up (well in advance for this one, probably). Once time is announced, you can plan appropriately. Since these are during daytime, workday hours, many who might like to attend are not able to, so usually seating is available for everyone who shows up. I'm planning to go to this one - Jerry Herman has always been one of all all-time favorite composers, and one of the rare ones who beautifully wrote both music and lyrics...

According to an article in Variety, this is by invitation only.
This one's invite-only but the Hal Prince memorial was not? How strange.
FWIW, for Elaine Stritch I believe there was a lottery. I was lucky enough to be my friend's +1.

For those willing to try their luck at last minute seating, the memorial starts at 3 pm.

Someone from Nederlander security(?) came out and said that it was going to be RSVP only and no one not on the list would get in. He also mentioned that 1200 tickets were given out. No one left the line, but it doesn’t look too hopeful. I’m disappointed I likely won’t be able to see the memorial, but not totally surprised.
zainmax said: "Updates???"Got in!Edit: the mezz was pretty much empty so I’m guessing that all of the people waiting in line (I would estimate about 50-60?) got in.
Sooo excited for you guys!!!! I'm at work now but if the performance was in the evening I would have lined up with you guys as well. Enjoy and please keep us posted!
