It feels like many nonprofits hold back seats from members during presale time (I know CSC and Signature do it). The membership provides members with an opportunity to buy seats early (not at a specific price point) and it said it wasn't guaranteed.
VotePeron said: I disagree. NYC is not London. People, Places & Things, The Jungle, Yerma, Hairy Ape, have been recent sell out hits off broadway. They could’ve sold so many more tickets at a higher price point with a limited run, causing great word of mouth and driving an extension at a higher ticket price.
Again, the move to Broadway literally just seems for clout."
None of those shows' production designs lend themselves to a Broadway house
Freestyle Love Supreme tonight, two tickets - Orchestra row H on the right aisle. Great seats!

The will-call line for Slave Play was crazy last week, so I assume it’s them knowing the volume since it is previews

Swung by to pick up for The Inheritance for Griday (they were ready at noon today). Second row of mezz on the aisle. A literal miracle for such a long show.
Anyone know who sings the cover of "Enjoy the Silence" they use (very well, I thought) in the back half of the production?
Anyway, saw this last night and loved it -- all three really seem to be firing on all cylinders. Plenty of empty seats along the sides in the Orchestra for an early Wed. curtain. Didn't stick around to see the madhouse of stagedoor.

Ok, but the standby is ALSO a lottery. It's a daily standby lottery. There will be no in person standby line, it's all digital. Which is nice, you don't have to show up ridiculously early for regular standby line in the hope you
I always jump when gunshots happen even when they are telegraphed. The biggest offender, which was for effect, was The Public's "Office Hour" in 2017 -- if the theater had not been in basically a blackout, I would have left but instead just shivered in my seat.
Interested if others are also a squirmy as I am when you see actors holding guns on stage, even if not fired. I am from the South and grew up around guns and being told the importance of safety, etc. But still, whe
If the show is actually at Lincoln Center Theater (any of the three stages), I've ALWAYS been asked to show ID at the box office. That said, the stuff that they send to other house (specifically Falsettos and Mockingbird), I didn't have to. I imagine if they ask at Mockingbird, they'll take whatever ID you give them as long as it has your name.
What a strange coincidence -- I just read about this in Sam Wasson's bio of Bob Fosse today on the train (I knew most of the story already)! The newscaster talking over probably wasn't that unusual, but in the book, Wasson notes that Fosse was there and that the show was so well received (I believe he says it had 10 curtain calls) that the audience's clapping and whooping drowned out Merrick's announcement, so the news station probably missed the full audio too.
