I'm up there now. It's intermission. It's hard to see some of the action on the tables at moments and I also noticed if someone is standing too far up the stairs, you can't see their faces. There are no issues if you need to stand a little though.
I'm gonna go with no because I've actually had seeing a movie before the show hurt me. Like I had preconceived opinions and it made the show slightly less enjoyable in some instances. My two examples are Hairspray and Rent for me. I have seen a couple of different Sweeney Todds before, but I don't remember much. So, I'm thinking I will not have problems having a previous experience that I loved.
I was looking back at my original email, which is from the 1st day of the pre-sale when I ordered. It said we would get a reminder email 72 hours in advance. I'm going on 48 hours before my performance and have not gotten anything. Are they actually doing that?
I also have not gotten any emails about my seat being partial view. I also ordered the pre-show pie and mash and now I'm getting nervous. I mean, I have a confirmation email to prove everything. &
Rough Trade is a short subway ride away in Brooklyn. You may want to call and check about what they sell because it looked like a lot of rock when I was there. On the otherhand, I was there for a record signing and meet and greet with Lil Bub, a cat from the Internet. So, I'm not 100% of everything they sell.
Since I haven't seen it yet, I can't comment on what people saw. But, I also thought the camera movement was too much in Rent when that got filmed and shown. I think part of the problem is they want to film these like movies. I don't think wide shot for the entire thing would be great. Because they did that at BroadwayCon for the opening and I was bored from not being able to see from the back at either the stage or screens next to it. But, probably some still shots of big t
I also have tickets for the 2nd row upstairs. Definitely were not listed as partial view. Kind of irritating because it would have been nice to know that at the time of purchase. Then again, they also were allowing the food purchase for that section at the time.
I'm seeing this on Saturday. Tickets ended up being $12.72 with a convenience fee added from movietickets.com. Was honestly surprised it was that cheap. Or is it that cheap because it's a pretty early showing? I know they do that at some theaters. I'm going to a theater that's about 50 miles from NYC in NJ. I'm not in the middle of nowhere like the town I actually live in.
You will be fine. They only sell as many tickets as they have seats. So nobody else will be able to sit in that area if they didn't pay for those seats. I'd mostly arrive early to enjoy your food before the show starts.
Thanks for the review. I'll admit, I did buy a ticket mostly because of Kate Walsh. I saw her in Dusk Rings a Bell at the Atlantic Theatre company a few years ago and enjoyed her performance. And I agree about Jeremy Shamos. I thought he was excellent in Noises Off last year. I'm now looking more forward to seeing this. I don't have tickets until March though.
I paid $79 for balcony row B on the side aisle, so I'm not seeing how these are discounts. Unless they are just sending out advertising to sell more. I bought for when Donna Murphy is in it though. Don't know if that makes a difference.
I saw the pigeon inside on Friday during my lunch break. This was by the food area around 1:30-3pm. I forget when I saw him flying around again during the mainstage or that he was a thing until I saw a few tweets.
They were going to do the jukebox thing on Saturday. That's where the audience voted for songs for performers to sing. Instead they changed it to the slumber party, which was still voting, but not as much music. There was truth or dare where on dare people sang part of songs. Andrew Briedis, Annoying Actor Friend, posted a tweet chosen by the audience. And then there was choosing facts about who was up there.
