    Yes, he did have a breathing tube for the pool scene.

    Also, when Eli jumps off the playground set, unfortunately for those of us on house left, we all saw the 2 cast members getting into place to catch her.

    theatregoer, I'm in the same boat. I've spent so much on theatre this year, but Streetcar and Nice Fish are both something I need to see.

    I saw Let The Right One In for $25 using the TodayTix app and had great seats. Cry Trojans was also on TodayTix for $20. (Didn't go to that one) I just don't wanna risk them selling out.

    "The number of young people at straight plays is appalling."

    The chance I'll enjoy a play is just so much higher than the chance I'll enjoy a musical.

    I was so hyped when I heard Betrayal was coming, but alas, I couldn't afford a seat. There were no student discounts or any offereings. Kind of htpocritical of him to say.

    WhizzerMarvin, here's that speech:


    Mertis: A year or two ago I ran into one of the doctors. And he wasn’t always the nicest man when I worked there. I’m sure he was very busy and had a lot on his mind, but I think he wasn’t as kind to me as he could have been. Anyway, he recognized me and he said: “What are you up to now, Mertis?” And I said: “Well, sir, I’m running a B. and B. with my husband and I’m doing quite well.&rdq

    It was one of the most original pieces I have ever seen. What a great biography piece told in such an interesting way. Memphis was a blend of many things we've seen before. American Idiot was so contrived it upset me.

    LincTix has a good deal for this. Got row E in the mezz, seats 2-4, I believe.

    I tried to get tickets for a range of dates, but it kept just offering me the very first date in my "range" and tried to give me row G, all the way to the extreme side. When I decided to only look at a specific performance later on (Dec 5) I was able to get the better seats.

    "Georgia Engel's speech about meeting the brusque doctor later in life and telling him that she had a B&B with her husband ("That was a very nice moment in my life" was one of the nicest moments I've had in some time." <----this almost brought me to tears.

    And I definitely thought the number over the door was the address, not the year built.
  • John @ Signature Theatre Co.  Aug 24 2015, 08:28:05 AM
    It's interesting to note that, counting the number of posters who actually have seen the show so far, 7 have given it a positive review, and 8 have given it a negative one. Pretty mixed bag. Also interesting to note, the posters who have not enjoyed it have written far more posts than the ones who did enjoy it.

    I wonder if there will be a rush like 8 years ago?

    Saw this last night and think I will be haunted by it for a while.  All three in my party enjoyed the show thoroughly.  This was our first Annie Baker play and I warned them about what I read on this thread at dinner before the show.  We were all prepared, but none of us thought there was anything over the top about the "pauses."  And I loved the off-stage dialogue in the first act.  

    Everyone has been saying how Georgia Engel stole the

    At the Biltmore, the bartender offered me a drink. I said, sorry, I'm not 21 yet. He said, "I wasn't asking."
