Tickets went on-sale today. It's pretty sold-out, but a few rear balcony remain. I'm incredibly excited to see this...one of my favorite plays directed by the brilliant Ivo van Hove! Looks like he's also doing SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE at NYTW in September as well.

I'm feeling very lucky to be a New Yorker right now!

The fact that it's in Dutch scared me away, even though I love Ivo.

Van Hove is a genius and not in the states enough. Any opportunity to see his work should not be missed. I wish he would be invited to the Met.

Ok I'll bite: are they acute angles? Obtuse angles? Right angles? America has so many to chose from...

Hahaha... took me a second to figure out what you were talking about, SIAT. Getting slow and apparently dyslexic with age!

All right BAM experts… all the remaining upper orchestra seats are labelled partial view, but still about 30 bucks more than the gallery seats that are not labelled partial view.

What do we know about the partiality of the view from the upper orchestra?

Looks like it's related to the columns that support the balcony, based on the second picture on this page: http://www.bam.org/visit/venues/harvey-theater

Could be an issue if your partial view cuts off the super titles.

I sat in the last row of the Orch for Laramie Project a year ago and the view was great!

Would love to see this, but I just cannot sit in the Gallery for 5 hours. I would rather stand.

FWIW, another production of Angels just began at Seattle's Intiman Theatre and is running through Sept. 21. http://www.intiman.org/plays-events/angels/

Well, for those of us in New York, it's not worth anything that there is a production in Seattle...

Indytallguy… I appreciate hearing of any Angels productions going on anywhere in the US, so I can alert friends I have in those places or just in case my work is bringing me to that location at the same time. I wish I'd known about this production at BAM earlier on.

I forgot people from NYC never ever leave the city.

I provided the info because major productions of Angels aren't all that common. You do realize people from around the world read these boards, right?

Sorry it triggered your snark reflex.

Of course we do, I appreciate you alerting the board to the Seattle production since I'm traveling there in September. The leftover seats suck for this one, so I'll definitely check it out elsewhere. Thanks.
Four Simple Rules for Attending the Theater 1. This is a nice night out. Dress accordingly. Like, no sweatpants. 2. When you enter the theater, turn off your phone. All issues with phones will be avoided this way, & you won't be verbally accosted by the cast, crew, & other patrons. 3. I did not pay dollas to hear you talk or sing. I paid dollas to see & hear gorgeous men like Norm Lewis, Ramin Karimloo & Joshua Henry. 4. Unless you have medical issues, don't eat. The wrappers are loud, & your disgusting munching is even louder. You aren't at the movies or a barn dance, baby.

Damn, I would have loved to have seen this - I will be in NYC over that time. Unfortunately I wouldn't pay money to sit in the seats they have left.
Now living in DC. I really have to change my name on the board.

You guys are making me nervous. All I could afford was a front row seat on the top level. Am I gonna be miserable?

Not at all. The view us just fine from there, just a little high up. I've heard people complain about the "barber chair" seating, but I've never had any issue.
