I saw that last month and was thinking "Didn't that close already?"
And I also think the Stephen Sondheim theatre still has the Hen
You can always try the Groundhog Day lottery. That way you can enter in advance. And if you don't win, they usually have some discount code. And then you will definitely be guaranteed a ticket to something instead of rushing around at the last minute.
^ I don't know about the Shubert, but when I sat in essentially the same seat numbers in row D of the Ambassador mezzanine, I felt like I was watching Chicago from backstage. I was not told there would be issues like that.
At least here, they do say the seats are partial view.

Yeah, I was in row B and that was the part hardest to see. I felt if I had been up 1 row, I probably would have had no issues. Actually,it wasn't even as bad as I was anticipating.
Thanks for the info on the box seats. I definitely will consider them if I go see the show again. I really want to.
I'm curious to see what the grosses for this week will be like. I'm totally aware of the discounts, so I am expecting them to not be as fantastic. But, maybe if they are good enough, Donna could take over full time when Bette leaves.
It's interesting how at Hello, Dolly! they don't allow bottled water in the theater because of the crinkling of the bottles. They also don't serve drinks with ice. But, they serve candy that you can crinkle the packaging. It was also slightly odd how they made the cell phone, pictures, and video announcement at intermission and not before the show.

When Donna first appeared, the woman jumped out of her seat and started SWATTING the usher with her playbill, yelling "I WAS LIED TO!!". After a few minutes of making a scene she announced she "WOULD NOT STAY FOR THIS!" and stormed out. It was shockingly rude.&nbs
I saw this tonight. Holy crap, that was awesome. It's my first time seeing this show, but it exceeded my expectations. Definitely up there as one of my favorite shows this year. There were definitely no mishaps like people spoke of last week. Donna Murphy owned that stage. The rest of the cast was so awesome as well. I totally recommend going on a Tuesday night or during Bette Midler's vacation.
This makes me so excited. I haven't seen the show yet, but I definitely will be seeing it now.
For what it's worth of star power, I went to 1 of her shows at the Beacon Theatre in November. The 1st sold out, so they added a 2nd. And her holiday show sells too. She may not be able to have each of her shows be a sell out, but people are interested in her.
