- Idina as Mama Rose? Sep 24
2016, 07:18:34 PM
No thank you. I don't believe she has the acting chops and I'm skeptical that she has the voice. She also reads as being far too young to play Mama Rose.
- Who is going to Hami Sep 24
2016, 06:55:21 PM
Very few people would get that much security. Most likely only Obama (doubt he's seeing it), Biden, Trump, Clinton, maybe Paul Ryan and John Kerry.

I rushed this today. I got to the box office just as it opened and was maybe 25th in line. The rush tickets were $50 and I was told by the box office attendant that it was "partial view." I was a bit miffed by the idea of paying $50 for a partial view rush seat but bit the bullet. I have no clue why they are calling these partial view. I was in the 7th row, house left in the middle of the row and the view was perfect. Pretty sure everyone around me (including people on my left) paid

Have they announced a rush policy?

Oof I think I'm going to skip this one.
Thanks for all the reviews and for everyone who actually explained what this is since I could not for the life of me understand the concept.

Cheers to a legend - RIP Mr. Albee.
- Best Cast Tony Award Sep 11
2016, 08:38:09 PM
I don't think "cast" or "ensemble" awards make much sense. It would pretty much exclusively go to shows that sweep the acting categories anyways. I also agree with ljay that Tonys would become way too plentiful. It's absurd that we still didn't get the Sound Design category back.

If you're going to a duet from Into the Woods, make it "No More".
- 2pm show b4 12/30 8pm JFK flight? Sep 5
2016, 11:13:34 AM
I don't know on earth it could have taken someone 3 hours to get from midtown to JFK. Figure about an hour via subway, a little shorter if you take a taxi or the LIRR from Penn station to Jamaica and the timing works out.
2 hours in advance should be sufficient at JFK. Even if the show you see lets out at 4:45, it's still perfectly simple to make it to JFK by 6. I don't think I have ever left from midtown more than 3 hours before a domestic flight at JFK and I'
- Heather Headley Vacation Aug 20

Thanks everyone for the help! I checked Telecharge and didn't see anything but got concerned since I had heard she was out, but it makes sense that they took it off since she's back.

Does anyone know if Heather Headley is out this whole week/will be out of The Color Purple tomorrow? I was planning on rushing and would really love to see her.
- Gettting back to Philly After Hamilton Aug 13
2016, 10:15:14 AM
I have done this several times when I lived in Philly. If you don't like late night driving I would absolutely take the Megabus or Bolt Bus. There are more options and it's always on time and never runs into traffic at that hour and drops you right off at 30th Street Station.
- No She Loves Me tour? Jul 19
2016, 12:20:55 AM
It's nonprofit theater. The shows aren't brought to Broadway with the intention of commercializing and touring, like most commercial projections, Roundabout's Cabaret "return" not withstanding. Most shows Roundabout mounts would have little success on tour and with no commercial producers attached to their productions, no one wants to front the money unless there is a serious opportunity.

Looks like the Times scooped her up - not sure how regularly she'll be contributing but oof they didn't give her a high profile first assignment, did they? Also, it appears the Post may no longer have a regular theater critic on staff, unless I am missing on someone? If so, certainly sad news.
- Will Jessie Mueller still be in Waitress in November? Jul 18
2016, 01:35:38 PM
Don't some contracts start when they begin the tryout?
Nope. Contracts are almost always (in fact, in my experience, always) renegotiated when a show transfers. It's possible if a show transfers with its cast directly that some actors may not want to commit the full standard 12 months, meaning the newly negotiated contracts could be shorter.
- 2013 GLASS MENAGERIE - Laura's entrance Jul 12
2016, 12:37:46 AM
This thread is reminding me just how phenomenal this production was. Laura's entrance was fitting and artful, Cherry Jones and Zachary Quinto were excellent and that has to be one of my favorite sets. It feels like next season is far too soon for another revival, especially when the one done most recently is looked on so fondly by most who saw it.

Just got a balcony seat. There are still seats left! So excited I snagged one.
- Study Spot around Theatre District or elsewhere Apr 23
2016, 10:59:49 AM
I know you said doesn't have to be "library volume"...but why not go to the New York Public Library? The Rose Main Reading Room is a great place to study and noise won't be an issue at all. I have spent hours there.
- Is She Loves me open ended? Mar 18
2016, 03:12:03 PM
Roundabout will just continue extending. They will not make it open-ended. The last big hit they had was Anything Goes several years back, and I suppose, the Cabaret re-revival. Both just kept getting extended. As a non-profit, it would be strange to announce an open-ended run. I also don't think their subscribers would be happy that one of the two Broadway houses they own is locked up with an open-ended run of a show.
