If anyone has any Pride Playbills that they don't want, could you kindly send them (or just the covers) my way? I'd like to use them in an art piece for display in my office for Pride month. (I'm a therapist, and the art will be seen by many of our families.) Happy to pay for stamps. :)
I found the play to be dull, plodding, pretentious, and repetitive. Three hours of Israeli/Palestinian talking points screamed across the metaphorical aisle and into the audience with no dramatic tension or even genuine debate:
--"You killed my people!" --"Well, you killed MY people!" " --"We want Jerusalem or we will keep killing!" " --"Ooh, great motivation, there! How about stop massacring our children and we
Having sat in boxes on both the left and right for "The Color Purple," I'd say that if you get the front box on either side, you'll have a fine view, but if you wind up in any of the boxes further back (especially with an inside seat), your view will be quite obstructed. I'd say it's definitely worth the extra $10 ($49 per ticket) for a full-view front mezzanine seat. I haven't sat in the side orchestra at the Jacobs, so I can't comment on whether it's wo
Rushed this today at 5:30 (Saturday) after striking out at "Waitress" SRO and rush for "Glass Menagerie" and "Miss Saigon." Was told that general rush had been sold out, but I could get secondary rush on the side mezz for $49 or side orchestra for $59. I chose the former. Excellent full view from the second row of the front mezz, about 6 seats in. I wasn't impressed by the show, but the seats were terrific for the price and for how late in the day I got them!
"Miss Saigon" is a very easy rush (got 2nd row at noon for a 2:00 Saturday matinee), and I was left breathless. "Glass Menagerie" is also an easy rush, and I think it's worth seeing if you haven't seen the play before. Great itinerary! Have fun!
Also, I'd definitely recommend "A Bronx Tale." It's not highbrow, but it's a blast.
TDF gave me M3. The sweet lady in the box office said that they usually let the front side partials go for rush after front row sells out, but that there's no guarantee it'll stay that way. Hope that helps! :)
My dinner plans fell through, and now I'll have about three hours between "Miss Saigon" and my 8 pm show to kill. Any ideas for cheap yet decent things to do solo? I'd rather not get on the subway, as I have the world's worst sense of direction. Thank you!
Small update: I arrived a little before noon today (bus from Boston) to pick up my TDF tickets. (Panicked and decided to go with TDF just in case, after the Tony noms.) They said there were no front row rush left for either performance. I didn't ask where the other rush are located, but it seems like they'll sell rush after the front row is sold out.
My TDF tickets aren't ready yet. I'll update again when I have info about the location for those.
