As was previously discussed, they aren't offering any tickets to the general public.

Often when a successful show announces a closing date, the producers pull the remaining tickets for that date in order to offer them to VIPs and families. At a certain time, they will release those tickets to the general public.


Just keep checking.

Not necessarily and doubtful considering they announced the closing awhile ago and it closes in two weeks. It's not happening.

I didn't say (or mean to imply) that tickets WOULD be available, but if any are not spoken for, they could be released without notice.

You said tickets will be released to the general public, which you simply do not know.

IF any were remaining after satisfying VIPs and families. That was implied.

I wouldn't be surprised if they released a small batch of tickets in the coming week or next. Phantom did the same thing for the 25th anniversary. It's not unheard of.

Okay about the lottery, which will be a zoo. Any guess how many tickets will be available. Since they only sold a limit number of tickets.

Did anyone do the opening night lotto?

I was wrong. Selling them two days before the show is cutting it close though! Well, I just went to TM and there are 28 seats left, all in row MM of the rear mezzanine. Maybe if they don't sell, they will give those away?

I was on the fence, but already have work to do tomorrow, so I am skipping it.

But the code is FANSIES, if anyone is interested.

as of right now, there's a total of 19 seats remaining.
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.

Wonder why it is closing, thought it was doing decent box office before closing announcement. Was this just Disney being Disney and closing a show because it is thinking of the next show to put on Broadway?

In a thread about that very topic one poster said this, which I agree with:

"Disney is not like any other producer. It had $45 billion in sales last year, $6.14 billion in profits. That's billion with a B kids. Do you really think they are sitting there wringing their hands over whether it loses $100,000 in a given week or could have made another $2 or 3 million if it ran another 6-9 months? $2 million is what they probably spend in a year on fresh fruit and water for the break rooms in their corporate offices and catering at their offsite meetings. What's the most important thing to Disney after profits??? Say it with me..... IMAGE. They don't want a show out there representing their brand that's slipped and is not what it was. They don't want tourists from Nebraska who they also count on to buy Disney products, plan vacations around their theme parks, go see their movies, having an experience seeing a show that has slipped and come away with a negative impression. Too big of a risk. They'd rather close it and bring in something else. THAT'S why Newsies is closing."
