Her husband, Jason Danieley, has said that fans can leave pictures of sunflowers or pictures of themselves wearing teal (the Ovarian Cancer Awareness color) on Marin's Facebook page to show support and bring cheer. Truly, miss Mazzie is a goddess. I was lucky enough to meet her at the SD of "n2n." She signed my "Passion" DVD insert and could not have been more classy or lovely.

Rushed 2 weeks ago (a Saturday). Arrived at 6:30. 8th in line. Was able to choose the box seat: left front box (house left) gives the best view, IMHO. $35, cash or credit. By the time the B.O. opened, there were about 50 people in line. The gentleman in the box office was awesome.

"Duck Soup" "A Night in Casablacca," and "A Day at the Races" are wonderful Marx Brothers films, too! "A Night at the Opera" is probably my favorite, but every film has at least a few priceless moments.

It would be fascinating to see that happen. I've had dozens of experiences in which changing seat location vastly altered my perception/experience of a show. With "The Humans," I could have chosen a full-view seat in the rear mezz, but opted for front orch partials because I prefer to be up close, even if I sacrifice seeing some action. I think $30 was a fair price for my seat. If I'd paid $67 (or whatever FV is), I'd have been disappointed with the value.

Rushed across the street on Saturday, 8/20. At 6:45 there were 5-6 people there, and about 30 by 9 am. No idea how many they sell or where they are, though.

I rushed on Friday. Bus from Boston arrived at 5:30 and I asked for rush at 5:45. Lady in front of me asked if there were any $45 tickets left, and was sold rear side mezz. I asked if there were any rush left, and the lady said front row rush was all gone, but there were partials in the front orch she could sell at the rush price of $30. They were 6 rows back all the way house right. Approximately 1/4 of the stage was obstructed and I couldn't see anything that happened stage far left. Th

I'm not sure if there's a thread about this, but since theres an awesome Usher Appreciation thread, I thought it would be nice to have a thread highlighting great box office staff. I've never been in a position to pay full price for a show, so I rely on rush/discounts/dumb luck to get my theater fixes, and the box office staff one gets can have s huge impact on one's experience of a show. B.O. staff interaction, if notable, gets tied up in my recollections about

Posting to help my fellow BWW posters looking for a good affordable option for this show. I intended to post this in the FH lotto thread, but I couldn't find it.
Anyway, I realized at 10:03 this morning that I had forgotten to enter the digital lotto, which closes at 10. My friend and I walked over to Circle in the Square to see if there were SRO available. Arrived at about 10:18. Spoke to the very polite and energetic box office staff, reporting that we had neglected to enter the

Henrik, I 100% agree with your post! It's also important to show a profound sadness in singing without coming off as whiny or clingy, for "I Guess I'll Miss the Man." It took Rachel Bay Jones (dir. Paulus) to elevate that song from sappy sit-through to stunning. Your suggestion of "Heaven Help My Heart" could potentially go there, as well, depending on how OP interprets the song. I hope OP sees all these suggestions and finds them helpful, but if not, I'm enjoy

trpguyy said: "Great songs, though if your audition involves a pianist, do not sing anything from Light in the Piazza. It will not go well for either of you.
True, though the piano in this song is much easier to play than anything else in the score. How about instead of the Piazza song, maybe "So Anyway" from next to normal or "The Gentleman is a Dope" from Allegro?

I once wore a sequined shirt to the theater (to dress up) and wound up with a front-row seat. Throughout the play's first somber scene, I kept wondering why the director would want tiny sparkles of light to flit erratically over the rear wall of the stage and characters' faces. Luckily, I realized my faux pas fairly quickly and donned&zipped up my jacket at the first applause break.
So aside from jangly jewelry, perfume, and overly revealing clothes, we
