The Playbills are handled no more or less than anything else a patron comes into contact with at the theatre (not to mention everything they come into contact with on their way to and from the theatre). Getting rid of them would be a drop in the bucket in terms of lessening any possible exposure to anything.
BWAY Baby2 said: "That sounds so easy- but it is not- because the refund is taken back if the dispute is not settled in your favor. You should know that."
My experience, from the merchant side of things, is that the dispute almost always goes in favor of the credit card holder. I worked in the office of one of the merchandise companies for a while and we would get a dispute fairly regularly, especially from people who bought stuff on tour, since our name would appear
MacBook on Safari (Mac OS 10.15.4, Safari 13.1) and not having that issue at all. I honestly can't remember the last time I had a site request Flash be updated, I thought just about everyone had finally abandoned that by now.

I assume the reopening date announced by the League would take into account any required tech, but I would imagine each show would be different, based on rehearsal time and any necessary re-casting."
I'm guessing that, similar to what happened after 9/11, you'll fin
Law and Order: SVU Episode Mar 30
2020, 12:01:44 PM
I mean, very few of SVU’s “inspired by true events” episodes adhere closely to the full event. They typically use the headline of the event and then spring off into their own world. Remember the Casey Anthony episode with Hilary Duff that used an irresponsible mom covering up the death of her toddler to spring board into an indictment against anti-vaxxers?
Sutton Ross said: "Only 32% of New Yorkers actually own their apartments/homes though, I wonder if companies and individuals are going to help renters out?"
Remember that mortgage freeze is for all of NY state. It's going to take a while to push through all the legislation needed to help out everyone in the state (and by this point I'd much rather Cuomo handle it than try to handle it locally and leave it in de Blasio's hands)

While I can understand your perspective, maybe you could choose to look at the situation another way -
The Met has had a different HD title available for free each night this week. Tonight is Daughter of the Regiment, tomorrow is Lucia di Lammermoor (Mary Zimmerman's production), and Sunday will be Eugene Onegin. I'm crossing my fingers that they'll extend this and throw another slate of titles for free next week.

I believe that the Times article refers to them as a part time usher. The only thing I can tell you for fact is that the usher was a substitute usher."
I would assume that disclosing the name of the usher would be in violation of HIPAA privacy protectio
Broadway to Close? Mar 17

Where would they tour to? The large majority, if not all by now, of the currently running tours are on the same uncertain hiatus as all the Broadway companies. This isn’t only hitting NY and Broadway.
TheQuibbler said: "Apologies if this has been asked/answered before but I was little unclear about the language in the article: will tickets bought at the box office be automatically refunded?"
Standard practice is to refund purchases made with credit cards automatically (this can take a few days, especially with such a large volume of them to process right now). If you bought them in person and paid cash you'll need to contact them to arrange the refund method.<
For everyone clamoring for Lady Gaga to play the role, and I ask this in all seriousness, has she done anything that shows or even hints that she has the comedic chops to pull it off? I admit that the only thing I've seen her act in is her appearances on American Horror Story (yes, I've still yet to see A Star Is Born), so I can't say I've seen her do any really impressive acting, let alone anything remotely funny. I don't doubt that she wo

Actors are notcompensated for press appearances, though principals oftenhave grooming (clothes/hair/makeup), transportation, and/or food contractually provided to them for press appearances. Higher-level individuals may also have specification
Phantom Tour Question Feb 29
2020, 04:48:30 PM
It looks like that Twitter account pulled the wrong art from a Google search to put their words over. That looks like the recently closed North America tour, which toured in the UK before coming over here and I assume has either been touring since then or has relaunched over there.
