    Thanks for making this report, it’s very useful!

    I was the first person in line for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder yesterday on Saturday (whose information appeared here). I just wanted to add that the 2nd person in line after me only arrived at 7.20am, just in case anyone else wanted to know. So I was in line for about an hour alone.

    I was in line at 8:15 am on Saturday morning (8/30). There were 25-30 people in line already. They sold 20 rush tickets and then discounted orchestra tickets at $69 to the rest of us.
