    "His Kiss, the Riot" in Hadestown. What a performance from Patrick Page.

    Haven't seen "Himself and Nora" but adding in a vote for "Hadestown"...terrific night of theatre!

    g.d.e.l.g.i. said: "How does Patrick Page play Hades? It's kind of hard to top the insanely deep vocal from the album, and I'm worried they might have done something excessively theatrical like hinging on that song about building the wall to keep us free and making him a Trump caricature.



    Just saw the show tonight, I am a big fan of the album, particularly Greg Brown's Hades (I've been listening to him for years and he is actual

    Oh wow! Thank you! Will definitely be taking advantage of this.

    I can see this if you haven't seen the show. But honestly that was one of the scenes that really stuck with me seeing the show and I love listening

  • Last minute cheap show for tonight  May 25 2016, 05:12:48 PM

    Shakespeare in the Park is pretty cheap.

  • Saddest Bway Performances  May 23 2016, 10:58:33 PM

    Mark Rylance's performance in Jerusalem was a gut punch. Particularly that third act...from when the girl puts on the record "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" by Sandy Denny and they dance, then he gets the crap beaten out of him, Ginger, his closest "friend" comes and spits on him, he has to face his little son while covered in blood and spit...ugh

  • Beauty and the Beast  May 23 2016, 08:59:46 PM

    I enjoyed the teaser, can't wait to see more.


    I will echo what's already been said, I love me some Ewan McGregor, but that accent is not good.

    The rose looks BEAUTIFUL.  


    I think it's safe to assume the real full trailer will be out for Christmas 2016.  


    7 more months to go, suckers!  


    I mean, as was discussed above, I think people knew it was just going to be a teaser. With the better part of a year to go, that&

  • Rush Tickets vs. Lottery Tickets  May 21 2016, 11:36:44 PM

    Generally shows don't offer both rush and lottery, it is usually either/or. But I imagine if a show offered both, the seats would be comparable.

    Ok...Your point? There are plenty of people older than that who can write cohesively.

  • Hadestown @ New York Theatre Workshop  May 16 2016, 08:47:26 PM

    Seating question for anyone who has seen it:


    I'm looking to buy a ticket, and since I'm spoiling myself, which I never do, and just buying a full price ticket since I really want to see this, what is the best place to sit? I am guessing the middle section facing the stage, and was going to buy a front row center ticket but then wondered if maybe it would be better to be up a row or two? Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

  • Riedel on Tony Awards being a tough ticket  May 10 2016, 08:46:30 PM

    "He’s expected to do some fun Broadway carpool karaoke with nominees throughout the telecast."


    Except I literally just finished listening to an interview where Corden was asked about doing carpool karaoke and, if it's up to him it won't be happening, and I liked his reasoning. The Tony awards broadcast is celebrating live theatre, and he wants the things happening to be live in the theatre, he doesn't want to leave the theatre for 8 minutes and

  • HADESTOWN at NYTW  May 6 2016, 10:34:09 PM

    Me too. I love the original album and am very much considering paying full price to see this.

  • Blackbird Rush  May 5 2016, 05:44:53 PM

    Ooh, good to know, thanks! I've been wanting to see this since long before the nominations but just haven't gotten around to it, but this helps.

    Or maybe, you know, since he is still coming back for the last two days he just had a commitment like they originally announced?

  • Who are the Future Broadway Stars of tomorrow?  May 2 2016, 10:19:44 PM

    I'll throw Ripley Sobo's name out there. Saw her as the little daughter in "Once" then she got great reviews when she joined "Matilda". She's been doing some big movies lately (most recently Batman vs. Superman).
