Everything You Need to Know About Broadway General Rush Tickets

Show-Score | By Show-Score

Beginning with "Rent" in the mid-1990s, theaters have sold discounted General Rush tickets to Broadway theatergoers. While there are restrictions and you have to be willing to wait until the day of the performance to buy them, the reward of cheap tickets can’t be beat!

General Rush tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis when the theater box offices open, so arrive early and be prepared to wait! Don't forget your photo ID either: most shows require this to purchase the tickets. 


If you'd rather not get up early to stand in line, the best way to get discounts to Broadway, Off- and Off-Off Broadway shows is via the Show-Score "Member Nights" program, which is completely free.  Simply score 6 shows you've seen, and you'll start receiving offers to see shows for free.  Producers participate because they want to build buzz for their shows from avid theater-goers, like you.  It's free to join, and scoring shows is fun and easy.
