For anyone who's experienced with rush tickets and such, would I be in a good position to be one of the first 10 in line if I get to the American Buffalo discount at the theatre on Thursday at 6:00 am (opens at 10)?

I’d think you’d be probably first in line!

Considering the star power and the deal involved, people will probably be there before that.

How much before would you guess?

Really curious when everyone thinks people will start lining up for this. I really want to get the tickets but the earliest I could possibly make it would be around 7:45-8am. Would that be too late?

Not an expert on timing, but I can say from experience I wouldn't be surprised if they actually offered far more than the advertised 10 tickets at $15. That's pretty common for promotions like this.

Does anyone know how this promotion will work? Will the first 30 people be able to buy tickets at these prices for any performance? Or will it be limited to specific dates?

It seems like it should be any date since there was no mention of blackout dates or anything in the articles I read.  The whole thing seems a bit strange for me tbh but I'm all for affordable tickets in theater so I'll probably stop by the line tomorrow morning as well.

I'm curious as well and half-tempted to try the line, but I'm thinking that the Darren Criss fans will be there quite early. I'm seeing JLP tonight and will pass by the theatre on my way home to see if the line has begun - will report back.

Hey Lily, I can't really estimate the time but if there are truly no blackout dates for this deal, it's going to be extremely popular. Darren Criss fans (in my experience) are particularly....well I will just say jazzed when he is on Broadway. With only 60 tickets total, I assume this will be quite the hot ticket.

On the Instagram all they said was that there are no blackout dates except for opening and it’s subject to availability

I sincerely hope no one’s out there tonight. And if they are, I hope the police send them home. I stage doored after The Inheritance and it’s freezing outside. $15 rush tickets are great but they’re not worth dying for.

Walked by as promised. As of 11:45p, no one was in line (thank goodness, because it is COLD... even in the alleyway). There was a guy putting up the large signage over the entrance though. He's estimating 4am :)

By the time I got to the window around 10-:45am, they only had tickets for April 8th and 12th.  Apparently, they had extended the $52 promotion.  Does anyone know to which dates did this promotional offer apply?

I believe there were no blackout dates (except opening night) though the entire offer was subject to availability, so I assume they had a certain allotment of tickets for any given date but probably had a cap per performance as to not have an overwhelmingly comped house for any given performance.
