I could have sworn that I received a mailed discount card for JAGGED LITTLE PILL 💊💊💊, but I must have tossed it. Still no discount codes posted here, por favor?

Rush tickets now available daily at the City Center box office! Price is $50. Producers have dubbed them "MEAT SEATS". Cuuute.

In hindsight, I wish we'd skipped Moulin Rouge and bought tickets for a second performance of Bat Outof Hell instead. It bums me that I will likely never have an oppo

My husband is not a Meat Loaf fan and had virtually nointerest, soI was basically dragginghim along; the friend is a lover of almost every style of music, but particularly classic rock, and he was very eager to see this show.
My friend and I loved it, but the big surprise came from my husband, who said "That was fabulous! Best show of the trip

When you get out of the theater head to your right, there should be a glass revolving door saying something like access to 56th street, go through that. Turn right and sometimes they'll have barricades set up but you should see some steps up to another door which is the stage door with city cen

I agree with your assessment. Even with major caveats quite a few of the critics liked it.
"It sounds like the reviews that will coming out in the wee hours of the morning will all be titled A Hot Mess At City Center: Jesse Green will be racking his brain for any sort of current relevance. I think if the critics take it for what it is they will not drag it through the mud."

Not really mincemeat if you go to the reviews thread.
uncageg said: "A mini tour then! Didn't it return to London after Toronto?"
London, Toronto, London, (sit down or limited season), Toronto (when tour was to launched, but was scrapped). This City Center engagement was supposed to be another tour stop. I'm pretty certain that the producers are testing the waters for a resurrected tour.

Actually, it did tour before arriving here. And the set is the touring set. It has been talked about here on the boards.
I'm given to understand that it played London and Toronto.&nbs

Reviews now posted in a separate thread. Many critics couldn't resist it, in spite of the "plot". Seems to be the consensus.
