I haven't but I did ask about it on Sunday. The guy at the box office said it totally depends on the day. Sometimes they have enough for everyone plus extras and sometimes they have to turn people away.

I had a HORRIBLE experience waiting for over two hours this past weekend haha which ended in a heated conversation about Playwright's interest in money over supporting the new generation of theater artists. And we would have gotten in if we weren't students. IF you want a student ticket, no one's gotten in for weeks they said. However, if you're willing to pay full price, you've got a shot.

Last night a huge number of people got in. I think they sold the entire front row and the loge to people, although I definitely saw a large group waiting for tickets that didn't get any.

The problem is not that they don't have the seats. They did last night. At least 10 or 15 empty ones. The problem is that the people who originally bought those seats didn't ask for a return. It isn't legal for the box office to sell a seat twice. Also they have no late seating. If you show up at 8:02 they won't let you in. I think latecomers get disgruntled and then go home.

Caitlin, what on earth do you mean by "Playwrights' interest in money over supporting the new generations of theater artists?" That doesn't make much sense.

Latecomers ARE admitted, though they have to sit in a box in the back until intermission. It's a very comfortable and fair alternative to disturbing the performance.
