when I first say this headline that it was taking the Jacobs and not knowing it was for one night only, I thought "Once" was closing suddenly.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

It looks like it sold out. If anyone has an extra ticket for this they need to sell under $100, please PM me.

Almost the entire mezzanine, plus a fair number of orchestra seats, are available on Telecharge.
When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad

Oh, the new layout is sort of confusing. What is the point in being able to look at the map of the theater if you can't see each and every single seat that is abailable? I'll stop by the theatre later to get a ticket and avoid the fees.

Tickets aren't being sold at the box office, because I had wanted to do the same thing to save money on fees.

Not sure what you're doing, but when I bought this ticket a while ago, I saw every available seat on Telecharge and selected mine?

Yes, I did. I don't love the piece itself, though I respect its historical significance. I pretty much went to see LuPone re-create an award-winning performance, and she sounded pretty much the same as on the album and the PBS video.

I didn't know the show going in last night, and I can't really say I know the show now either. Most of the time I couldn't really follow the story, but I have to, regretfully, admit, it may have been because I was pretty bored. Patti sounded great, though!
Men don't even belt.

I was also there last night and greatly enjoyed it, though I admit I'm a bigger fan of the piece itself than Reggie is. Aside from Patti, Mary Lou Rosato was probably the standout for me, though I think my familiarity with the cast recording hindered some of my enjoyment of the show, as a few of the actors really are not in the vocal shape they were then. (Who is though?) Of the new cast members, I thought Suzy Kohane and Fred Arsenault were very lovely and effective as Sadie and Gus Polock.

Yes, that was pretty much the highlight for me, apart from LuPone's "Nickel Under the Foot."

I love Patti, but if this were two acts, I'd have to imagine there would be less of an audience for act two. The show didn't seem to have aged well, having gone in barely knowing what I was about to see...

From a historical perspective, I was glad to see a show that I had read so much about over the years. But despite that and the appealing cast, it was a bit lackluster, I thought.
