  • Favorite Pro Shot Versions of Stage Musicals?  May 22 2015, 08:12:42 PM

    Going back to the original question for a moment: one of my favorite proshot performances was of "Contact." I know many here aren't fans of the show, but I first saw it through an old VHS copy made by a friend years after the Best Musical controversy, and absolutely loved it. The third act does for me emotionally what "Company" takes the full length of a show to accomplish (and I LOVE "Company!).

    PMed you.

  • On the Twentieth Century Audience Opinions and Stage Door Info  Mar 24 2015, 12:27:36 PM
    I saw James Moye's first performance, so my opinions are based on having seen the show during that somewhat tumultuous time for the cast. Like VintageSnarker, I understand there's love for the show here, and I certainly don't want to spoil it for anyone. All theater love is good love, and in this case, I simply don't share it for this show.

    Overall, I didn't enjoy "On the Twentieth Century," and was even fairly bored during much of it--especially the big production numbers, which I felt
  • The King and I in May  Mar 16 2015, 10:35:24 PM
    "Fun Home" and "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" are not to be missed!
  • King & I Rush?  Mar 16 2015, 10:31:27 PM
    Thanks for the confirmation: at least I'm not crazy! Do you think that given that they're often misleading, that my contacting Customer Service would help me at all?
  • King & I Rush?  Mar 16 2015, 10:28:16 PM
    This isn't specifically about rush, but I thought this post made more sense here than in the "King and I" previews thread.

    I purchased LincTix today for a performance in mid-May. When I selected the ticket, the description stated "this seat is in the first row from the stage." When I received the confirmation e-mail, however, the seat listed was J-113, which is not only not in the front row, but is on the very extreme side (the row ends at 112, so 113 is likely quite obstructed). Since
  • Silly question from a tourist  Feb 12 2015, 01:08:36 PM
    Sometimes after a last show, creatives may come out and make a speech or something, but there isn't anything markedly different in terms of the quality of the show. The audience might be a little more enthusiastic. Overall, I wouldn't say that the last show of "Cabaret" will be markedly different than any other performance, but because it's Alan Cumming, and because it's "Cabaret," it will be a great experience. Keep your tickets, and enjoy your trip!
  • Official JCM as Hedwig (2015 Edition) Thread  Feb 12 2015, 12:42:58 PM
    I think the production is making a great decision, JMC is doing the best thing for his health, and it's indeed gracious and professional of MCH to take up the mantel for the week. It's just unfortunate for those of us who live out-of-town and cannot exchange tickets. Like I said, that's live theater for you. And MCH is FANTASTIC in the role and worth seeing!
  • Bad Theater Behavior  Feb 12 2015, 12:40:11 PM
    "Cabaret" had the worst audience behavior I've ever experienced. I was lucky enough to get a pair of HipTix before the cast change. The people sitting in front of me talked, waved at the cast (from mid-mezz--not sure why they though they'd be seen), bopped along to the music, and even blatantly filmed the Act II opening number with their cell phones until I tapped the prime offender on the shoulder and asked her to stop. It wasn't just the mezz, either: whole numbers were drowned out because th
  • Official JCM as Hedwig (2015 Edition) Thread  Feb 12 2015, 12:13:34 PM
    Count me as one of the folks headed to NYC next weekend specifically to see JCM. (I've seen all the other Broadway Hedwigs, all of whom were fantastic in their own ways!) At least we have the movie! Of course I'm disappointed, but that's theater for you, whether you like it or not.
  • Curious Incident Rush  Feb 5 2015, 04:38:41 PM
    When I rushed this show in August (third in line at around 8:00 a.m.), they gave the first rush tickets to the right box farthest from the stage, and subsequent tickets were given to the boxes closer (the sightlines are better farther back). I assume they then moved to the left boxes and started from the rearmost box. While this is a tech-heavy show, most of the action takes place center stage, and anything missed on the extreme ends is brief and Christopher is narrating everything he is doing
  • Mezzanine at St. James  Jan 12 2015, 11:34:53 PM
    I was lucky enough to get front-center Mezz seats for "Side Show" through TDF, and they were phenomenal. Have a great time!

    Such a shame. Luckily, I was able to get TDF tickets for this Sunday.

    Hi,a friend of mine is taking her daughter to Cinderella as her first Broadway show! Have they been offering rush on weekends since the grosses have been so low, or are they maintaining their original policy? If not rush, does anyone have a discount code? She's not on TDF, and they check IDs at that show. Thanks!

    I have a ticket to this. It'll be my first visit to 54 Below, and I'm so excited! Can I still use the discount code you provided in some way?
  • Matilda Lotto  Jun 6 2014, 07:06:22 PM
    I won about a month ago for a Saturday matinee on a warm sunny day. 50/50 seems about right. The seat I got was something like seventh row way on the side: very partial view for anything that didn't take place upstage, but I certainly won't complain for the price. :)
  • Got Tu Go Disco  Jun 6 2014, 07:02:26 PM
    Gabrielle Hamilton's memoir, "Blood, Bones, and Butter" reveals a few stories about her father, one of "Got Tu Go Disco's" designers. I read the book for culinary school--it's not remotely theater-related, but it does incidentally give some insight about what happens to folks who are involved in flop shows, and their families.
  • Just Jim Dale  Jun 4 2014, 12:09:51 AM
    Yes: if you wait for him outside (someone will direct you). When I met him after seeing the show, he was very pleasant, but understandably quite brief.
