SOME BROADWAY CONCEPTS YOU SHOULD KNOW FIRST:
General Rush Tickets:

A limited number of tickets will be sold at the box office when it opens, for that day’s performances. Up to 2 tickets per person.

You should arrive before the box office opens to make sure you get tickets. Some people start making the line an hour before the box office is opened.

Student Rush Tickets:

The difference with the General Rush, is that this applies to students only, with valid Student ID.

Lottery Tickets:

You should be at the door of the theatre two and a half hours before the performance to sign up for the lottery. Up to 2 tickets per person.

Winners will be announced two hours before the performance (you should hang out 30 minutes until the announcement).

Digital Lottery:

You should enter the online lottery when it’s opened to sign up. Up to 2 tickets per person.

Winners will be notified by email and will only have 60 minutes to pay for the tickets. Seats are assigned at the discretion of the Box Office and cannot be transferred to other people or performances.

Payment is online with Credit Card. Tickets can be picked up 30 minutes prior to the show, with Photo ID.

Standing Room:

Available at the box office, the day of performance, when performance is sold out. You don’t get any seats. You watch the performance standing up usually at the back of the Orchestra. If you’re willing to do that, you’ll have a great view of the stage (better than many seats) and at a very cheap price!

Shows that sell out often are Aladdin, The Book of Mormon, Hamilton and Wicked. One Standing Room Ticket is sold per person.

I'm an actress and pop singer born in Argentina. I came to NYC to pursue my dream and I feel I'm living it every day. New York is magic and you have to be open to everything, because you never know who is seating right next to you on the subway or behind you in the line of the super market. I decided to create this blog about NYC because I realized how many powerful tips would have helped me if I knew them before from someone who was living in the city! So I thought that it would be awesome to share with you some tips about New York from a New Yorker. You can read more about me at http://www.jesicalevi.com I'm going to keep updating this blog so stay tuned :)
