Was an audience member at THE VIEW last Wednesday and they gave us a voucher/order form for the dvd. So I will see it in about 4 to 6 weeks when it arrives.

Every time I have been at The Broadway Theater since 2004 I have had my bags checked and told to have my ticket when I stepped out at intermission.
When I went to see "How to Succeed..." I forgot my Playbill when I stepped out at intermission (I slip my tickets in the Playbills at the title page), they would not let e back in. Luckily the person I was with walked past he door and he had to bring back both my Playbill and his along with the tickets. In hindsight, seeing the frenzy o

Same thing with hands raised in the air during the song whenI saw it. A friend of mine is seeing it with his mother and her church next week. The merch stand was quite busy the evening I saw it. Especially after the show. Mostly middle aged women when I was observing.

The barricades are already in place on 46th and along 8th. Just. Walked through there. There is a sign on one near the stage door that says "You are in pit 1"

For those who feel you learn absolutely nothing about the song, I can see why you say that. However, we are given a few hints throughout. I caught them when I saw it. I think the problem is that they were not more obvious. I was thinking that the orchestra could have underscored 2 of them with the melody as we know it or somehow blended in with the girl with the flute. Maybe even played the music to the part of the song he was reading from the book. It may have helped make it clearer as to wh

I lost the desktop type page on my tablet. I am assuming I now have the mobile version. No banners or BWW tv to the right. Just went away the other day. I have to click on the left and choose united states just to see that I am logged in and if I have any messages. It would be nice to have a full site button to click.

Yeah, maybe if she wasn't trying to be incognito, people would have paid attention. I think we have all just become numb to performers on trains. I know I always seem to get these same three dancers on my train with a loud boom box and I just tune them out.

Capn, the CREATE wall at New World Stages is gone. It was painted over about a month ago.
I like the gallery in the mezz of the Hirschfeld theater with sketches he did of some of the show's that have played there.

Thank you for the message PLF. Forgot about this thread and can now give an update.
When I chatted with Chita after a performance of Drood I told her about the incident I mentioned on the first page. She actuzlly remembered it and apologized again. And she remembered the details.

A friend texted me at 1:00am with the news. I was floored. Had just finished listening to THE VISIT. I was lucky enough to be in his company on a number of occasions and have a few very nice conversations with him. May he rest in peace.

Am so on her side with this. It is annoying to have it happen near you while watching a show. I have friends in shows who tell me they can see the phones all over the orchestra level that are used during shows. Some have told me they can see recording lights in the mezz. They have said how distracting it can be and the just want to scream at these people.
As an audience member it drives me crazy. I have asked many people to turn their phones off. At Finding Neverland it was a guy a

I attended the invited dress on Tuesday afternoon. I am very familiar with Penn & Teller having seen them on tv for a number of years. They don't normally do big tricks. They do more intimate and at times cringe inducing kind of creepy stuff.
I enjoyed the show. It is very low key. Took me a bit afterwards to really appreciate it. It was exciting to see the nail gun thng live. I have seen him do it on tv. It freaked me out then and really made me cringe live.
