Phew! I love Estelle, so I bought a full price ticket to this in June during the pre-sale... not knowing I was paying WAY too much at the time, heh. I'm not saying I wouldn't go, but it would have felt strange being one of the few $135 ticket holders in the room...

I for one am shocked.

Best of luck to the cast/creative/crew on finding their next projects!

Be glad, Jeff. I didn't even pay to see the show and that was too much. It was 90 mins of mind-numbing chatter about nothing. Estelle wasn't even that great to me, honestly. She even called for a line 15 mins in (this was post opening).

Trust me. I knew a closing notice was my only shot at a refund. Thankfully, I bought a ticket for early June, so I knew I had a good chance.

At a performance of Natasha Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 back in February I was seated at a table with a person who might have been a producer. He was telling another person at the table - someone not in the arts, a general contractor or something - to invest in Broadway shows. The returns are amazing! He said he was with The Velocity of Autumn - it was how I heard of the show.

It was nice to Estelle but that was about it.

Hey, what did that mean "is Estelle still out?" I'm seeing it today. If she's not there can I get my money back and go home and nurse my miserable cold?

I believe so, she and Stephen are both above the title on the website, at least.

When I asked if she was still out I'm referring to this thread stating she was out most of last week.

"'The returns are a amazing'. True, to a certain extent, so are the debts are amazing!"

He was giving percentages of what you can make - I was envisioning the percentage of what you can lose.

All I wanted was the menu to order the charcuterie plate and I had to listen to the whole shpiel.

Is there a way to find out if Estelle is out before going to the theatre?

Out the rest of the run? She's going to disappoint the tens of people who are coming to see the show.

Just got my refund at box office for today's matinee. The agent confirmed she is out for the rest of the run.

And got a sixth row center seat for Violet at TKTS for $73. Less than my refund from the discount ticket for Autumn.

Looks like I saw her last performance in the show. I can't wait to see the grosses next week because I imagine there will be a lot of refunded tickets since she's basically the only draw.
