I noticed that Hedwig will have Saturday performances at 7 and 10pm. Anyone know offhand of any Broadway or off-Broadway Saturday evening shows that would be done in time to catch the 10pm Hedwig?

Only show I can think of would be After Midnight. First date would be possible too but it'll be closed before Hedwig opens.

I'd have to say anything that's a one act. Most two act shows get out at around 10:15-10:30ish.

I enjoy the earlier 7:30pm off-Broadway Saturday curtains at Playwrights Horizons (4th floor theater), Barrow Street, and Roundabout (Laura Pels).

also, does anyone know why they're only doing 7 shows a week??

I'm thinking because the major draw is NPH, and he wants to be able to do each and every performance. Seven performances seems pretty doable.

But if he was out at 11.00, and the shows starts at 10.00, you see where I am going here?
Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

So much for Harris' LES MIZ film-related snide remark on the most recent Tonys telecast: "WE do it live eight times a week." Riiiight. And someone should remind him that he hasn't done multiple--let alone eight--performances a week in a musical since ASSASSINS nearly a decade ago. Some "we."

Yes, he has actually. Just not in New York.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

I'm curious. What shows had he done in sit-down productions even of limited-run length? I don't think I've read about any on the west coast.

Most off-Broadway shows do the same schedule. So if you see an off B'way show, you can still make the 10pm Hedwig on B'way

If you don't find a joke amusing, why still dwell on it six months later?

So, the other day I was looking up tickets to Hedwig and I saw they are doing 10pm on Saturday's. I was wondering if anyone knew the reasoning for this, if any? I've never heard of a show starting a performance so late before (I know it's only 95 minutes) so I was curious if there was any reason or, just to maybe be different?

Apparently, the 10pm show is going to be a little "raunchier" and I would imagine they don't want people to bring their kids to see "that guy from How I Met Your Mother".

Also, a show like Hedwig just seems like something you'd see later. I think it works for the concept.

Thanks for the input, Tom Hooper.

This isn't a kids show though, so I doubt that's the reason. It just makes sense at 10pm, it makes it fun.

We had a late show at the Jane. Yes, it was a raunchier, drunker, druggier crowd and it was more of a party atmosphere. Also - casts of other shows who got out of their 7 or 8 pm show were able to come. The cast of Phantom came every week. They were big Hedheads.

The joke, which was probably not his, still holds pretty true if he's doing 87.5% of 8 shows a week.

"Harris has also managed to persuade his producers to skip the traditional Wednesday matinee, adding a late night show to Saturday instead. ďWhat I didnít want is to do a matinee and 20 minutes in, have whole groups of people getting up, turning down their hearing aids, and walking out,Ē he says. ďThat would distress me, because part of Hedwig is Iggy Pop in all of his ****ed-up glory. So Iím looking forward to squatting down in front of the first row and having people spit in my mouth. Itís that kind of show. Iím anxious, one night, to fall backwards and be led on my back by people with their hands outstretched.Ē He pauses. ďI donít think that will ever happen, but thatís the vibe Iím looking for ó thatís the vibe I have to embrace. I donít ****ing care ó you gotta go to a nasty place.Ē"
