We see it on the 12th - and on the 19th, we'll be on a boat in the middle of the Atlantic with very expensive and very slow internet. No matter what I may decide in advance I see a real danger that I'd give in and download it (or worse, if I have some setting wrong, that it'll start to download on the 19th by itself.)"
I went this past Friday, arrived at 6:10 and was fourth in line. The line grew more slowly than I thought it would, but they only had 10 tickets, so only two people behind me got tickets, and they probably got there around 7?
Yeah, this was one of the ones that really stuck with me after first seeing the show off-Broadway, I so love Brittain's performance.

It's such a beautiful song.

Is it just me, or is the sound a little weird in that commercial? I assume it's from the new recording, it lacks the energy from the original...and "Balaga" is so garbled it doesn't even sound like a word. Maybe it is just the editing.

We're all capable of clicking a link from the BWW homepage, and anyone who is interested in reading the full reviews will do so anyway. I've always thought the point of a review thread was to summarize how each critic felt so that the people who aren't interested in reading the reviews in their entirety have a sense of how the show is being received.&quo
Rushed this morning and was the first in line at 7am. I got H 21 and 23. It will be my first time seeing it from the orchestra (previously onstage and rear mezz), so I'm excited to see a new angle and hope it is good!
