I believe Monday-Wednesday tickets used to be $75 until the most recent price increase— now those tickets are $80— the cheapest you’ll find.
I rarely go on weekends for that reason.

I really hope you have a great birthday, but I’m not the person to ask how to get a specific 1-1.
What I WILL tell you is that Hecate doesn’t appear until just before the 1st rave, so don’t waste any of your precious birthday time looking for her before that time.

One does not simply ask how to get a 1-1. ;)
That said, spend time with the Porter, and then be there when the time comes. If fate is on your side, and all the variables that are completely out of your control work in your favor, and the moon is in the second house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars, and you catch Poor Porter’s eyes when he is rejected and looking for a caring energy, then you might get the 1-1.
If you want to follow Lady Macduff, one really good way to pick her up is straight out of the ballroom.

Awww! Thanks! That really means a lot— seriously!
When I first discovered the show, I spent hours upon hours reading Scorched the Snake’s blog, so I totally get it.
Before SNM (and now The Drowned Man), I never experienced anything like this phenomenon where people have come together with such passion and fascination around a work or art or culture. I count many of the “super fans” as deer friends— a real community, of which I am grateful to be a part.
Thanks for your kind words!

Lady Macduff is resurrected, is handed her suitcase from the Porter, and then wanders off to reset her loop.
Bald and Sexy make their way into their dressing room to get gussied up.
Boy passes through, whispers something to Porter (who then disappears, into his office, I think?) and primps in the mirror near lost luggage. He then reconnects with Bald and Sexy near the piano to start the loop.
Meanwhile, Macbeth and Banquo make their way to the luggage room to wash off the last loop, put on fresh shirts, and share a drink to bygones before Macbeth heads in to meet the witches. Banquo stays behind and does his famous lost luggage dance.

Personally, if I am going to go spend the money to the Heath I want to be able to enjoy the experience. But nobody forces you to stay in your seat and not leave the Heath when you want to. Your friend can go, have dinner, and leave at 7:20 and still get in early enough to catch the whole 1st loop. (One of the advantages of the Heath is that you don’t have to queue up with the regular line— you get to go straight to the front.)
With the Heath option, at least you get a nice dinner. I just hate Maximillian’s List on principal. SUCH a waste.
I don’t know anything about the $25 cancellation fee, so I can’t speak to how that option fits into the whole thing.
My fear when Lady Macbeth is having her freakout inside the mirror.
So I was reminded last night at our Witches II Party: The Witchening that while this is my FEAR for Lady Macbeth, this was ACTUALLY Garth-as-Bargarren one night when he ended up needing stitches because of his overzealous knocking on Fulton’s door.

After the banquet, my Boy helps move the trees first, THEN heads upstairs for the start of the loop.
Prophecy comes first. ”I’ll Never Smile Again” plays as the witches dance in the lobby near the piano summoning Macbeth. Then the dance with Macbeth at the registration desk. Macbeth, Bald, and Sexy all leave, and Boy stays behind to taunt the Porter, leading into the lip sync.
The easy way to remember it is that, technically, according to the program, the Prophecy is considered scene number 1, just as “Macbeth” opens with Macbeth meeting the witches on the heath.
