There are a few TV screens that are showing what / who is on stage for people who can’t see far in the back, which helps a lot if you are one of those people. A few hours before  the run, many people stood in line. Because they might miss good front seats.

If you are planning on going to an event, for example, a Mardi Gras performance, and you want to be as close to the front as you can, you should line up early. Take some blankets to sit on – and don’t worry, the ground is fake grass – if you want. If you plan on being there for a few hours, bring some snacks and water and a book to read because it can get pretty boring.
