    Is the Cabaret info accurate? Playbill says there’s a general rush when the box office opens. Any info about that?

    • BwaySpotted says:

      There is a general rush but occasionally rush tickets will have sold out online since they use HipTix on certain shows in advance. Check their website for more information!

      • Kim says:

        Well, either they offer rush tickets or they don’t. Hiptix tickets are not rush tickets, they’re a separate discounted program. If they’re offering rush tickets on top of Hiptix or they’re not. Right now it doesn’t really make sense. I think that’s the point Colleen is making. If Broadway Spotted doesn’t have the proper information to clarify that’s fine. But as of now this is just confusing and misleading.

        • intern says:

          Roundabout Theatre’s Student Rush policy (Violet and Cabaret) is 1/2 price whatever tickets may be available 30 minutes before curtain. Select theatres may have partial view tickets available at a “student rush” rate. 1 per ID.
