When I stage-doored after Patti and Mandy's show, Patti signed the apple that had been tossed to me in "Gypsy." She's been hit-or-miss miss both in terms of whether she comes out and how much she wants to interact. She straight-up yelled at me when I SDed her after "Gypsy" at City Center when I tried to take a picture of her signing.
I think Brantley doesn't have the mental health background to know that Christopher isn't "agoraphobic" per se, but that one of his challenges is discomfort with being in new spaces, new people, etc. I also think Brantley likes to use words and citations that make him sound erudite, even at risk of their being incorrect.
Bradway2 - I did not care for it. In fact, I found it repulsive. Explanation to follow with
***MAJOR SPOILERS FOR ALL ASPECTS OF THE SHOW*** ************************************************************************
I went into the show with high hopes, if not high expectations after seeing the mixed reviews on this site. I have long enjoyed "provocative" theater, such as "Cabaret" and "The Scottsboro Boys" (including many others with sco
Was across the street on Wednesday trying to get SRO for "Dear Evan Hansen" with a friend. A group of four arrived at "CFA" at about 8:30, then a few more at 9:00. By 9:15 there were about 10 people in the line, and my friend joined that line while I stayed at DEH. We got 5th row extreme right, partial. Not a bad view as all the action happens center stage, but there was a head in the way covering my view of most of the stage. I observed that people who had joined the
We didn't get in. They sold 16 matinee and 8 evening SRO for today. The latest person to get tickets arrived at 6:15, and she got the last one (she'd been hoping for a pair). The first person arrived at 3:30 am.
We got "Come from Away" rush (Partials in Orchestra row F) instead.
It's 7:10 now (Wednesday, school vacation week) and my friend and I are 19 and 20 in line. I'm hoping some of these folks are just getting one, and that they sell a bunch of spots. Cross your fingers for me!
Wow, what a steal! I wish I could take you up on that!
If you can't sell it, the box office at the ART is fantastic about exchanges. There are a lot of seats left for the run, and it's very likely they'll find you something you'll be happy with (though probably not front row).
Protip: if you're a student with a valid ID, you can order "best available" seats for $25 plus $5 facility fee over the phone. They always check ID and validity at the BO upon pickup. The people at the BO there go out of their way to get you the best seats they can. :)
I recently saw a production of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" In Boston. It was at the Lyric, which is a tiny space, and I was very close to the performance floor, center. The set contained a lot of books on bookshelves against the rear wall. At some point during the final scenes, I noticed that the shelves remained but all the books had disappeared. I have no idea how they managed to wheel something off or onstage in the middle of Act III without calling attention to it
It's definitely NOT a thing if more than 2 total tickets are being purchased! Switching out is cool, or meeting a friend on line IF it doesn't impact the people behind you is cool, but it's definitely not okay to save spots for people to cut the line. (It's one thing if someone is running a little bit behind and you inform whoever is behind you, or someone leaves for 15m to bring back food or get coffee, but what you're describing is not cool.)
