Broadway Rush, Lottery, and Standing Room Only Policies

DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, BROADWAY PERFORMANCES ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. CLICK HERE FOR THE LATEST THEATRE-RELATED CORONAVIRUS UPDATES.

Anyone willing to wake up and get to the box office early, spend some time in a line, or stand during the show, can get greatly discounted tickets to the majority of shows on Broadway. Or if none of those appeal, several Broadway shows now offer digital or online lottery options.

The idea of a rush for affordable tickets all started with Rent, which, at the peak of its popularity, sold all seats in the first two rows of the orchestra for $20 to whomever would get to the box office in time on the day of the performance.
