- Do salaries influence ticket prices? Oct 16
2016, 10:24:20 AM
One thing to keep in mind that there are many more salaries in play than just actor's. Stage managers, stagehands, musicians, company managers -- those are all substantial as well, and all of the salaries at play in a show contribute to the overhead. I would say yes, they are one reason among many for rising ticket prices, because any rising costs will contribute to rising prices. But it's one among many factors at play.
There's always talk of "g

The earliest I can remember is seeing a tour of Camelot with Robert Goulet as Arthur. I think I was around 10 or so.

Roundabout has an in-house marketing department but also uses agencies for their advertising. Generally (but not always) SPOTCo for advertising and Situation Interactive for digital.

Going Off-Off-Broadway here, but Samuel & Alasdair: A Personal History of the Robot War by The Mad Ones is still one of my favorite nights I've ever spent in a theatre.
The wall coming up at the end of the original Roundabout Cabaret revival when I was 16 is still indelibly etched in my mind.

I remember seeing it right before the Tonys in its first year and thinking it was directed focused and fast as a freight train. It was a great night of theatre.

Several already mentioned have been recent favorites of mine -- Something Rotten, Gentleman's Guide -- and I'll add Hand to God for doing some super clever advertising. I loved the Playbill ads they did that were customized to the show they were being printed in.

How awful that he was suffering from Alzheimer's -- it's truly a horrific disease -- but what a blessing that at least he didn't forget his family or lose the core of his spirit.
He'll be so very missed.

They could be holding seats specifically for the public sale tomorrow. We wouldn't be able to tell by looking at the map now. So I'd still check tomorrow when they go on sale, because the chance isn't actually zero.

I got Row F in the balcony for the $52 price point. It's always possible they're holding some of the cheap tickets -- maybe the far sides? -- for the general on-sale. I guess we'll see on Wednesday.

JRB sent an email to his mailing list today saying Wednesday the 17th so yeah it's probably that and the 18th was a typo.

Well. I got a new order confirmation, but it came with the same additional email of "your seats will be decided later..." and no information in the confirmation about where I'm sitting. (Also no charge or refund on my credit card.) The old order appears in my Telecharge account as 0 tickets and no new order to be found. I'm going to give it a couple days to see if it all sorts out, but. It's strange.

They might be sold out by this point, Shari. They were definitely going faster than the rear mezz when they went on sale. I got a pair in the side orchestra for a weeknight, but I was one of the lucky ones that didn't have any issues with Ticketmaster their LincTix number.

Having worked with a few different ticketing systems, I'm actually not hugely surprised that it's this convoluted to make this work on Telecharge. I imagine it's been hellish for the box office staff.

I was in and out without trouble on Ticketmaster.com. I'm sorry for folks who are still having issues. I'm surprised they decided to do an on-sale on Saturday like this when the LCT staff aren't in.

Probably it's biggest commercial impact would be on licensing for the show regionally (which is the actual reason for a lot of cast albums). However, Encores isn't in the position of a lot of producers/investors of Broadway shows in getting part of that licensing profit for a period of time, which is the reason for a lot of cast albums' existence.

I legitimately get sad whenever this thread falls off the front page because all I want is more news about it.

Mr Roxy said: "Much preferred the artwork for the original production to Encores poster. As I recall, the original production had Rosewater standing wearing a firemans hat."
Somebody posted it earlier in the thread if you want to take a look back!
