    yes, after camping outside in Central Park and on the street for nearly 20 hours to be 4th on line, I got 4th row center tickets to the Seagull. It was beyond worth it. I wish I could find the words to describe how amazing it was, but at the moment I'm still having trouble. I don't think there is a word to describe how good it was, and to be sitting so close. Mere feet away from some of the most, if not THE most talented actors alive....it was unreal. And for all the fellow Star Wars fans - Natalie Portman is indeed even MORE beautiful up close. U can't begin to imagine how beautiful and talented she is until you've been that close to her. I still haven't recovered....and I think it'll be a while before I do.

    hey Piett. Basically, BobaPhil, another friend, and I went to Central Park with our sleeping bags, chairs, and other such line waiting gear. We showed up at 5 in the afternoon on saturday (for sunday's show) which made us numbers 4,5, and 6 on line. Most people however started showing up hours later around 10-11 and continued on. About the latest people showed up who were able to get tickets was around 4am I believe. Basically, we waited in Central Park, then at 1 when the park closes we were escorted outside to Central Park wast till 6 in the morning when the park reopened and we went back to waiting for tickets. The tics were distributed at 1 PM the day of the show, and the show is at 8 at night. I showed up so early because I simply HAD to be close, but most regard that as insane, and if u don't mind being in one of the first rows, u can show up later in the am. It's a small enough theater where there's not a bad seat in the house, but being small and hugely popular, tics are of course limited, big time (explaining people's need to camp out). for more info, check out The Public Theater's Website and follow the links for Shakespear in the Park. The Show runs Tesday-Sunday till August 26, and in addition to Central Park, people are also lining up at the Public Theater location on Lafayette. I don't know if that's any better than waiting at Central Park. I rcommend to anyone who has the time to go. It's so worth it. SO worth it! I would've waited 40 hours if I had to! Not to mention the tics are free. Oh, and each person's also entitled to 2 tickets, plus I made some pretty cool friends while waiting. It was a great experience, and now I'm even more psyched up to line up for Attack of the Clones!:D

    Natalie was more beautiful than I could have possibly imagined. But that wasnt the only thing that was amazing to watch. The 20 hour wait was well worth it. Me thinks I will never see a better show for as long as I live. Truly a once in a life time event.
