have booked for next Saturday matinee stalls row B. Can't wait to see it again. We are massive Louise fans but will be interested to see Gina

My 9 year old has seen it before but never seen Rachel, so here's hoping.....

Sorry to keep asking the same question, but it got lost in the last couple of pages:  has anyone dayseated recently?

I'm going on Saturday and wondered how early I'm going to need to be there (I want tickets for the matinee) - would 8.30 be early enough these days or slightly earlier to be sure?

Well, I got there at 8:30 am this morning and was first in the queue. Tomorrow, however, I know I'll need to get there earlier because lots of other Wicked fans happen to be dayseating too. So it just depends on the day!

Thanks for the help.  How do you know a lot of other Wicked fans will be dayseating tomorrow - twitter?  I don't really use it, so any info on whether I can expect it to be busy on Saturday would be gratefully received!

Yeah mainly twitter and from just talking to other fans... I shall let you know if I find out anything about Saturday's day-queue in advance :) But 2 show days do generally tend to be a bit busier, so I'd say try and aim for 8 (at the latest) on Saturday just to be on the safe side.

Great thanks :)  I was only asking because the last time I dayseated it was a 2 show day (though a Wed) and I got there at 8.15 and was 2nd in the queue, and would have got a ticket easily if I'd got there before 9.  That was last year though!

Last time my other half day queued, it was a Nikki show midweek and arriving about 8-8.15 meant 7-8th in the queue. I don't know what Saturday queues are like these days, especially as it's getting colder, but traditionally you wouldn't want to be later than 8 if not earlier

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think she's still doing them all but the Wednesday matinee.

I don't know if anyone saw, but Rachel posted a message on stagestatus thanking fans for support :) and said it's going to be one heck of a final night, which I don't doubt!

As far as I know, no. She'll still be doing 7 shows a week.
