newintown said: "Regarding the use of "translation" for Karam's approach to this, clearly the word choice is wrong. If phrases like "lipstick on a pig" are being interpolated, this is an "adaptation" - that is, someone else's version of Chekhov's play (which translations all end up being anyway)."
Roundabout IS billing it as an adaptation.

Definitely The Humans. One of the finest new American plays in years.

Love the suggestion of this at the Delacorte. Would be lovely.

OlBlueEyes said: "What if I close my eyes and imagine seeing Benanti on stage as the curtain rises, playing a backward and meek flower girl? This Benanti is a strong woman. In She Loves You, Benanti breaks out to the stage for the first time determined to get that sales job, and get it she does, due to her ability to put her life on the line and make one difficult sale.
Not that Benanti couldn't do it, just that I'd like to see it

Yes. With Jake Gyllenhaal.
- Tony Award for Best Jun 13

It's certainly a nice idea in theory, but how often (if ever) would the two awards ever differ? Maybe Perhaps in 2011 when a play like War Horse won, where it's clearly more about production than the writing. But it would be so rare that I don't think it makes much. It makes more sense just to award the Best Play Tony to the playwright and producer.
- Is the app TodayTix reliable? Jun 5

veronicamae said: "All TodayTix does is use existing discount codes (or partner with shows for exclusives), and then buy tickets from the box office to hand to you. That's why there's a $10 per ticket fee - you're paying for their time to buy the tickets, and to hand them to you outside.
Also, if I'm wrong about ^^^^ do correct me, but that's what was explained to me by people talking with TT to partner with them."
Yes, this is incorrec

- HADESTOWN Rush (NYTW Rush) May 22

I'm pretty sure they offer rush for everything, but they just sell whatever is left. So when a show is sold out (which this one has bee regularly), they don't sell.

I got Streetcar tickets last week Friday. I also got Nice Fish back when that was at St. Ann's.
- Shrek removes slur Apr 15
2016, 10:54:19 PM
No one is suggesting all DVD copies and cast recordings are altered. But to say future productions shouldn't use that word is completely logical.
Company has been revised to remove a gay slur. If Company is not untouchable, pretty sure Shrek isn't.

2016, 02:31:20 PM
Yes it was. And if Shrek were written today, I doubt that word would have been used.
- Marissa Jaret Winokur back on Broadway? Apr 10

Charlotte in Falsettos seems like as good a guess as any to me.
- Falsettos to Return to Bway Fall 2016 Apr 1
2016, 01:44:14 PM
This is a Lincoln Center Theater production, being put on at an outside venue (like The Nance or Other Desert Cities); they're not "just" producers like View from the Bridge or Clybourne Park. LincTix will definitely be available.

Who is "they"? This is a Lincoln Center Theater production.

Roundabout isn't involved in the transfer at all.
- NY Philharmonic 2015 show? Nov 3
2015, 11:30:00 PM
The Secret Garden is not a NY Philharmonic production. It is produced independently, like last year's Parade concert.

broadwayrocks2, what Tom Stoppard/LCT play are you referring to? Did I miss something?
- 20,000 NYC High Schoolers will see HAMILTON Oct 27
2015, 01:31:27 PM
CapnHook, you did not did not uncover a nefarious producer's scheme. The NY Times article clearly states they are selling the tickets to the foundation for $70 each. It also goes on to say that these prices will cover their cost, but they are not making a profit.
EDIT: You have concluded reading the piece.
- WAS BBAJ a really bad musical? Oct 4
2015, 08:03:20 PM
One of my favorite new musicals of the last decade. That said, it was doomed to fail on Broadway.
