A new revival production of West Side Story, directed by Ivo van Hove and featuring brand-new choreography by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, starts previews at the Broadway Theatre on December 10th, with an official opening on February 6, 2020.
I figured we should start fresh with a new thread for those who are attending previews. Who's going?

Unrelated to the actual show (which I’m enjoying immensely thus far) but it’s been a long time since I’ve watched commercials on a children’s channel and were they always this intolerable?

I do think Jordan will be great at this role. I don't consider him a stunt cast since he has theater experience already but certainly one of the bigger names they've had in the cast. He will probably only do 6 shows a

God they couldn't sing their way through that suicidal tragedy--one depressing ballad after another driving the audience to their obvious ending,
Good series though."

Anyone having trouble getting onto Lucky Seat at all? Trying to check the “results” page where you enter your email and it won’t load.

Haven’t heard either. Which is weird, because usually I hear even before noon with LuckySeat (I got my Hadestown and Mean Girls results at 1130 and 1155 today.)
To me, Curious Incident seems like the kind of show that really hinges on the performance of the actor playing Christopher. It wouldn't necessarily surprise me if an actor who isn't up to snuff can drag down the whole evening. That said, regional productions vary wildly in quality and I wouldn't necessarily get too worked up yet.
Jordan, yes, if it's very close (can't remember the exact cutoff) there can be 5 nominees. The last time that happened was 2016, when Hamilton, School of Rock, Bright Star, Shuffle Along, and Waitress were nominated.
As for the featured actor debate, I'm still putting my money on George Salazar. Michael is the showier role of the two and I bet anything they want to perform Michael in the Bathroom on the Tonys, being that it's the signature song.

Intermission report: I already know I like this show so I won’t comment on plot/characters/etc. but here are some thoughts:
George is back in as Michael and he sounds fine, but like he’s giving it 80% instead of 100. Don’t know if he’s conserving energy for Michael in the Bathroom or not. A little sad I missed Troy tbh, going off of the reports about how good he is. Jason Tam is really impressing me vocally but his Keanu impression is a little grating after a while.

How's rush looking during the week? I'm hoping to rush the Wednesday matinee next week but I don't know what it'll look like, whether or not local schools are out, etc. (earliest I can get there is probably 9:30)
