    As well as dynamic pricing.  Gross potentials are generally calculated on the original full price house structure.

  • If You Won the Powerball and Could Mount a Production on Broadway...  Jan 10 2016, 08:59:20 PM

    I'd get some brilliant people to put together a wild, inventive musical version of The Who's Quadrophenia.

  • Patti LuPone on  Jan 8 2016, 11:31:29 PM

    I doubt that they're necessarily going for a "Broadway star" theme for diamonds as much as they just cast singers across the board for their roles, either because they have songs planned or just in case they do so in the future.

  • Patti LuPone on  Jan 8 2016, 04:00:56 PM

    While I was watching it, I kept going, "Man, that sounds so much like Patti, but it can't be here."  Then I confirmed it and started screaming about it on Facebook.

    For everyone who doesn't watch regularly, the show also features Susan Egan in a recurring role and Deedee Magno Hall as a series regular.  The show pretty much casts all the roles with singers because there's so much (really fantastic) music.  Cool non-Broadway folks in the cast include

  • Interning for a Broadway Producer/General Manager  Dec 26 2015, 09:00:49 PM

    You absolutely don't have to know people to find an internship to apply to, although knowing people always helps get your foot in the door, like any industry.

    As far as finding internships, check regularly.

  • Into the Woods  Dec 16 2015, 12:06:51 PM

    There's a huge difference between "I am respected and the film producers will probably listen to me if I say things and try to keep me involved" and "I have actual contractual power to stop changes I don't like."

  • How young is to young to write produce or direct a musical  Nov 13 2015, 04:48:40 PM

    There's no too young.  Just do it.  You don't start writing better work because you're older, you start writing better work when you've written a bunch of crappy work and learned to do better.  Get your friends together and put on a show with them.  Put up a play at school.  Don't worry about not being old enough -- just have fun know and start learning.

    neonlightsxo said: ""I feel that is more of a ticket broker than official source, but that's me."

    That's not just you, that's a fact.

    Lol right? is a broker playing entirely on public ignorance and the single most recognizable domain name for Broadway.

  • Depression and Broadway  Oct 26 2015, 03:19:52 PM

    People aren't responding to the idea of being interested in or passionate about theater.  Most people on this board are passionate about theater.  They're responding to your stated feelings about being so emotionally dependent upon theater that your life is depressing at all times when you're not experiencing it.  That's an issue.

    Oh my God James2 I love you for saying Rebecca Sugar.  Steven Universe is amazing.

  • WAS BBAJ a really bad musical?  Oct 5 2015, 10:50:34 AM

    Agree with Kad.  It lost something in the transfer, but I still ****ing loved that show.

  • WAS BBAJ a really bad musical?  Oct 3 2015, 11:30:49 PM

    I loved BBAJ both Off-Broadway and on, but it's true it lost a special something it had at the Public when it transferred.

  • Spring Awakening: Triggering?  Oct 2 2015, 01:05:46 PM

    I mean, Melchior even talks earlier in the show about how amazing it must be for a woman to basically fight/protest and then submit to a man.  Really, I think it's a big indication of how Melchior reading up on all the physical facts about sex doesn't actually mean he knows everything about sex -- he clearly doesn't really understand or appreciate the emotional ramifications of it all.  Melchior doesn't escape from the overwhelming oppression of ignorance, even when

  • Spring Awakening: Triggering?  Oct 1 2015, 03:06:12 PM

    Definitely just talk to your friend and be frank about it.  A lot of times people who have triggers don't necessarily need to avoid these topics entirely, but do much, much better handling them with warning and the ability to prepare their heads.  (I can still remember the strength of my reaction to the suicide in the original production, and that was before I lost my own brother to suicide; it still hit harder seeing the revival, but I would definitely have wanted to know it wa

  • 1776 Casting  Sep 24 2015, 12:38:51 AM

    It might be piggybacking off of Hamilton, but really -- who cares?  It still gives actors of color a shot at some awesome roles that they'd almost never be considered for in a production of this calibre.  I'm all for it.

  • FUN HOME on TDF???  Sep 22 2015, 11:20:26 AM

    Sadly, it won't let me purchase even a single for tomorrow night.  

  • Shuffle Along artwork  Sep 11 2015, 06:01:32 PM

    I swear someone was asking who the ad rep for the show is, even though I can't find it now, but for the record it's SpotCo.

    The Mad Scientist's Guide to Romance, Robots and Soul-Crushing Loneliness


    I gotta admit, I loved this.  I'm very much the target demo for this crowd -- the less than common combination of musical theatre lover and sci-fi geek -- so take what you will from that.  But overall, I found it was clever, sweet, and well-written.  There's a number or two that could use tightening, either in the writing

  • FringeNYC  Aug 22 2015, 07:45:07 PM

    So!  I've seen a number of shows so far.  A few solid ones, one more than solid, one very much less than solid.  I haven't hit a WOW one yet, but word is I might tomorrow night when I see Schooled


    Straight Faced Lies


    Solid dysfunctional family dramedy with strong acting.  A little overwrought in places, but has a lot of really good honest moments.
