    It's starting to look like rush season on Broadway.

    And it's not just student rush.

    "Next to Normal" is the latest Broadway musical to announce it will offer $25 front-row and box seats at every performance.

    The rush tickets will be sold day-of-show only, starting at 10 a.m. everyday, except for Sunday when tickets go on sale at noon.

    "Next to Normal," a new musical about a suburban household in crisis, will begin performances Friday at the Booth Theatre.

    If it's student rush tickets you need, "Exit the King," which starts Geoffrey Rush and Susan Sarandon, offers $26.50 tickets on the day of the performance only at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre box office.

    Elsewhere on Broadway, 'West Side Story" does a $26.50 lottery for its front row seats starting two and a half hours before each curtain; "Hair" sells its box seats for and "Rock of Ages" also does a drawing for $26.50 orchestra-level seats two hours before curtain.
