^Andy is done with the tour earlier than originally planned. He was originally supposed to leave at the end of Buffalo, but is leaving sooner. I don't know if it would be Danny going on the tour as the post he made on Instagram made it sound like he's done with the show.
I once had two tech holds in one week, the first being opening night of Kinky Boots on tour in Philadelphia and the second being Something Rotten on Broadway. During Kinky Boots, it was near the very end just as the scene with the Milan fashion show was about to begin when the Milan stage manager didn't come out and the music stopped. After a moment, someone came over the loud speaker telling us they were having technical issue and would be starting up again shortly (the hold lasted about
I've always found Jennifer Laura Thompson's performance in Dear Evan Hansen underrated. I feel like Rachel Bay Jones gets far more attention because she has more musical moments, but Jennifer's acting is beautiful. I feel every break of her heart and every rise of her spirits through the entire show, and it's sad that not many people acknowledge what wonderful work she's doing.
I did standing room a few weeks back for a Saturday matinee, and as LiveOutLoud said, they only sell it when the show is sold out. In terms of the view, the only parts that are hard to see is the writing on the skrim and the name of the club in the second act. For $35 bucks, it's a bargain and a really good view overall.
I just looked on PPAC's website and it looks like Les Mis is part of their add on performances to their core subscription package. It is set up similarly here with the Kimmel Center and their Broadway season that eventually all of the events will become available to single tickets at some point once subscriptions are processed and finalized. Les Mis is also coming to Philly in the 2017-2018 season as an add on performance thus I assume PPAC will handle things similarly. Your best bet is t
I just want to clarify my comment about Wicked - The only comparison I was trying to draw was the critical reception and how both shows were never going to be critical darlings. I'm well aware of the cultural phenomenon that is Wicked as someone who is a big fan of the show.
I've learned to stop trying to understand how Ben Brantley works, but even for him that seemed way harsher than it needed to be. Also, I feel like Trump references in any written piece nowadays is super lazy and reaching for relevance, but that's just me. Overall, some good reviews, some mixed, and a few not so great, but like Wicked before it, this was never going to be a critics darling of a show.
I've only seen Abby on tour and have yet to get to see her on Broadway, but I absolutely adored her. I actually disagree that she played anything like Jessie, but she's fantastic and you should see her (and the show).
In the animated movie, Anya arrives at the palace looking for Vlad and Dimitri and ends up in the ball room where she sings Once Upon A December and is surrounded by the ghosts of the Romanovs and their guests from the last ball dancing. During this sequence, Anya dances with the ghosts and gets literally
