Just received the City Center flyer in the mail. Some interesting selections:

Little Me starring Christian Borle Feb 5-9
The Most Happy Fella starring Laura Benanti, Shuler Hensley and Cheyenne Jackson April 2-6
Irma La Douce (no cast announced) May 7-11

Guess I will be at all three!

I am so excited to see a production of Irma La Douce! It has been one of my favorite cast recordings for a while now.
I'm as jumpy as a virgin at a prison rodeo!

I'm also eager to see IRMA LA DOUCE. I was in an absolutely dismal production of it many years ago (miscast, poorly directed, etc.) It'll be good to see how the show fares in competent hands.

Got my flyer as well, and am interested in seeing these. Although I will admit that I know very little about Irma La Douce. Would love to hear about discount codes as well...

There's a movie version of IRMA starring Jack Lemmon and Shirley McLaine. The music was eliminated, though.

Story's the same.

I remember "The Language of Love" and "Dis-Donc" used as background/underscoring in the movie.

I especially hope that The Most Happy Fella gets recorded. I am in absolute love with Laura Benanti's soprano/legit voice.

Ah I just found out about Most Happy Fella and I want to see it soo badly. Does anyone know where to look for discount codes? The site says tickets start at $30 but I can't find any under $60. Does anyone have tickets already?

I bought side balcony for $30 (actually $32, with the fee), but that was quite some time ago. Maybe the prices have been raised?

Ha, at the same time you posted this I asked a question about seating. Just went to box office and all $30 seats sold out, was offered slightly obstructed mezz row c seat 36. Do you know anything about these seats?

If it's all the way over on the side, maybe one of the boxes is jutting out? I really don't know though.

Box office told me it was just missing an entrance or two. I hope she was telling me the truth.

Well, the sight lines in that theater are very good. How much were those tickets?

$30, that's why I grabbed them for the next two productions. Only can be bought at the box office.

Pammylicious, that about sums it up. You miss an entrance or two and maybe some pieces of the band. Pretty much, most of the show happens front and center.

Haha I guess it's more accurate to say I 'found out too late' but still, I guess it is worth a higher price?

Can someone verify for me - I'm looking at the seating charts for the Mainstage. It looks like the balcony seats have no aisles save of course for the extreme sides? There's no aisle breaking up the 60 or so seats in a row? Please tell me that's not true because that is some serious claustrophobic stuff going on up there!!!
