I love the idea of rush seats – tickets on the day of the show for just $25! I wish every show that came to our theatres would have a rush policy. I especially like it when a show decides not to make a student rush with ID but just a rush. I used to walk by the Bank of America Theatre on my way to work in the morning when JERSEY BOYS was playing and see all the excited people in line – people of all ages and backgrounds chatting as they waited for the box office to open. You could feel their excitement.

BILLY ELLIOT just announced rush seats! Day of show ten tickets will available at the Box Office for $25. Not just for students! Not just for seniors! Come on down to the Oriental Theatre. When the Box Office opens at 10:00 (11:00 on Sundays), the first people in line will be able to buy two tickets per person. Make sure to check out all the details here.

I can’t wait until March 18 when BILLY ELLIOT begins. I wonder how many people will be in line that morning.
