I would probably stick to the dress circle instead of rear orchestra! I was in the last row of the orchestra, and you miss some things because of the overhang. It's fine, but I would've preferred dress circle!
I have to second how wonderful Christian Dante White was. As a Gavin Creel fan, I was really disappointed to not see him again, but the understudy did a fantastic job! I expect to see him a lot in the next few years, hopefully in his own starring role.
I wonder when Santino will start rehearsals. I saw him watching the show from the standing room slots on Wednesday night.
Would their issues with the actors union last year be an issue? I went the first two years, but last year was rather disappointing as a lot of the performances were cancelled because the union wouldn't allow it.
It's one of the reasons why I'm not going this year. As someone that goes to a lot of cons, the price seems outrageous. At least lots of performances made up for that a bit.
About 10 years ago now the Huntington Theater did a show called Pirates! Plundered which I adored. It was very much in the Pirates of the Caribbean heyday and really reflected that with a barely veiled Jack Sparrow as the pirate king.
It was a marvelous production and I adored the Caribbean feel they gave the score. I would kill for a audio recording!
I gather that the one or two big review venues in Boston didn't love it and so it never made it to New York.
I definitely WOULDN'T recommend the mezzanine seats, though the front row might be fine as someone mentioned. I found these seats to be the smallest in an Broadway theater. I'm a fairly small person and when I sat down I immediately thought "Oh, well this is snug." I rented out my seat space to the elbows of the people on either side of me.
My wife even said that if there was ever a show that she was going to see in the Rogers to remind her horrible it was so she woul
I wouldn't be surprised if Patinkin was supposed to take over after Oak's original tenure, but then his schedule changed he told them that it had to be earlier or not at all. Personally I'm excited to see Patinkin but I feel bad for poor Oak.
I wonder if they would ask/be able to get Oak back after Patinkin is done. It seems like a hard role to cast for.
I saw it on Tuesday and absolutely adored the play. I was a little hesitant at the length, but I didn't feel like it dragged at all. However, I had heard about the 2 intermissions and then was really surprised when there was only one! I thought having the 1 intermission didn't harm the play, and I admit to being rather pleased that I got out at 10:55. It still made for a long night.
I was so pleasantly surprised at the humor in this play. I was expecting something a bit more dr
I was so excited to get tickets for this show on the first night because of the seemingly talented cast list, and I thought it was a classic I hadn't encountered before. Oh how disappointed I was! I even regretted buying my discounted tickets.
I couldn't believe how dull and boring the first act was. My friend who attended with me (who shall remain nameless) fell asleep multiple times and eventually left at intermission. Of course, the sound might've also been a
Due to a friend making last minute travel plans because of the snow, I now have an extra ticket available for Sweeney Todd for this Sunday evening, March 19th. The seat is in row E and was one of the seats marked "partial view", apparently because you have to turn around in your seat.
I'm selling it for $91, just the usual ticket price and the fee. I'm hoping that I can place it in a good home, because otherwise I'll have to take my wi
