Does anyone know who will be there? Alice Ripley confirmed via Facebook that she will... But has anyone else heard anything?

I'm assuming an official announcement hasn't been made on their website?

Question about the photo booth. I know they have certain people there each hour. For the photo booth its $10 per picture with one Broadway person, what do you do if you want a picture with 2+ people from the same hour?
Thanks!

If its $10 per picture, then wouldn't you pay per picture regardless of who the person is? Also I believe some photos cost more depending on the level of celebrity.

Off-topic, but reading about last year's flea market:

"Many of the tables featured one-of-a-kind show memorabilia, from small autographed bar coasters used on the set of Once to Wednesday Addams' full-sized coffin from The Addams Family.

How much did that go for???

The coffin was one they used in the out of town tryout and I dont know how much it sold for but they allowed you to take a picture in it for $1 after being purchased.

Juat wondering, how likely will Sutton Foster make an appearance at the autograph table this year?

Courtney2- I would say pretty likely considering she will be in NYC for her Carlyle performances.

And changed on Thursday.


I don't believe anyone will actually be there until I see them in person.

I keep refreshing the website in anticipation. Anyone else excited?

Yes, but refreshing isn't going to do you any good. The most accurate list will be whatever's posted the night before.

I'm glad they obviously read my post here an took my advice about having the MATILDA girls there.

So I'm guessing they either won't be allowing the Matildas to have pictures taken with fans at all or it'll be group shots for about $40 each.

I'm surprised they're letting the girls out of their cages to do this.

It'll change about 20 times before the actual event.

I'd have to see a final line up to get very excited. They are good line ups so far, but I guess I'm not more excited because almost everyone I would have an interest in, I already have gotten in the past.

Of course it'll change - some may not even show up that day. But the initial announcement is exciting because it's just part of Flea Market Day coming closer. That may not be the case for everyone but once the list is out discussion and anticipation seems to really take off in earnest.

Also, are they charging a lot more for this than they usually do??

I think when I went in 2009, they were charging $25. Last year it was $30.

For some reason I thought it was a lot less.

And it doesn't say anything about a limit for people to sign. It's usually 2 items per person, right?

Great lineup this year so far. Last year the autograph line was just as great but a pain as some actors were pulled from the table abruptly to go to the photo booth, leaving many fans who had waited a long time specifically to meet and get an autograph with a certain actor empty handed. Almost happened last year with Alice - I was one person away from her before an aggressive worker started pulling her away as she was trying to chat and sign, but she had promised my friend who was behind me she would stay so she stayed for us; the people behind us were very upset, though after she left. It wasn't hard to run to the photo booth when she was there but it wasn't that easy for every actor. All the actors were so into talking to their fans and then would be abruptly pulled away for the photo booth, or a pushy pro photographer would step in front of everyone on line and start snapping away for about a hundred pictures, so those waiting in line had to wait behind them for what seemed an eternity, and then the moment the photog was gone the actor would be whisked to the booth. It was really awkward after paying $30 for the opportunity. I got lucky in that I got a lot of time to chat with Donna Murphy who was at the end of the table and wasn't whisked away. I can't imagine how bad someone would have felt when the chance to meet Bernadette Peters that they paid $30 for was ruined.

I hope to do the photo booth only this year - it was more laid back and I got more time to chat with whatever actor I took a photo with and they'd often sign an autograph as well. The photo and the moment with them was enough so I didn't ask for autographs, but I saw a lot of people getting them since they missed them in the autograph line.

Yeah, you can bring 2 items per celebrity to sign.

I don't bother with the autograph table. I always feel awkward about walking past someone I don't know so I just skip that aspect of it. I find the photo booth people to be very nice and sometimes reward people who have been around all day. A few years ago they upped the price of Kate Baldwin to $20 and I balked. The guy running it said "For her it's $10 - she's been here all day". Something similar happened to be last year as well. I wouldn't count on getting autographs at the photo booth though. People like Bernadette (who is usually $40 instead of $10) and other "big" stars will pre sign some of the "photo holders" and you'll be handed one. I've only gotten an auto from someone in the booth once and that was only because there was no one else in line and he recognized me.

I'm not much of a "shopper". I don't have the room for big props and my closet is already bursting with show tees. So my day is mostly spent at the photo booth and chatting with people.
