Flying Over Sunset - Previews Thread  Mar 18 2020, 10:59:18 PM
Anyone else rush this morning for the matinee “Flying High” spots?

I’m glad I got there early (2nd in line) as there were only 3 given. We sat up on the catwalk with a view from above - talk about a trip :)! The liability waiver had me worried a bit, but they strapped us in quite well. Don’t worry if you’re scared of heights, the pre-show treats make this a can’t miss experience.

For anyone worried about social distancing, the security guard did a great job. First person stood

Any Opinions about DRIFT?  Mar 9 2020, 03:47:36 PM

I went last night and was so disappointed. Based on the PR blurb, I thought it would be a compelling family drama, but it was not. The book was so "light", it felt like it was written by a high-schooler and I was filling in backstory in my mind more than I should have had to for a "seen it before" plot.

The direction was also a problem for me. Be prepared for a LOT of screaming arguments and roles are so overacted, I kept wanting it toned down - characters are angry

Good news - there are no gunshots at all. There are a few times we got some startling thunder/lightning though. Startling mostly because it was unexpected. 



Hangmen Previews  Mar 5 2020, 05:45:30 PM

Was at the show last night. I went in pretty blind (did not see it at ATC or London) - I'll be honest, I went for Dan Stevens.

As someone posted earlier, overall, it's "meh". I'm glad I saw it, but am not going to put it at the top of my recommendations list. A few people around me left at intermission - a mistake, because Act II was much better. The wordiness of it without going anywhere is what bored me. A bunch of men in a small-town pub drinking and talki

Not a dumb question at all! I'll be trying lotto/SRO next week. If I end up doing SRO, I can ask the box office about rush seats - I don't want to misspeak and give

NYTW is not listed on Stubhub and their FAQ says:

Interesting that the first 2 previews will be lottery in addition to the daily lottery. Is that because of anticipated demand?

Synecdoche2...I don't think you'll be the dissenting opinion on this one. I was at the 2nd preview and as soon as the show took that sharp right about a quarter of the way in, it began to fall apart for me. By the end I was scratching my head. That anyone is think


COAL COUNTRY at the Public  Feb 23 2020, 12:13:42 PM

I was at first preview as well, and agree w/ JBroadway... it was "meh" for me, but it didn't get better by the end. Nothing grabbed at my heart throughout. Two shows that kept popping into my head... Come From Away and Girl from the North Country.

Steve Earle was a highlight... I was impressed with what he did with a guitar, banjo, and something he tapped with his foot (I'm not a musician LOL ). 

Just in case...

Jordan Catalano said: "Take the mezz."

I'm with Jordan, go for Mezz. Row Q has the Mezz overhang which feels like the stage is cut off.

I sat side Mezz (row D) and it felt super wide open...center mezz will be even better. And since you're basically seeing a concert, you'll get more of a wow factor.

On the other hand, waiting 2+ hours to save $40 isn't ideal either. I am interested to know if this show will raise prices soon or if they might release a discount code in the future. I am also interested to hear if there are box office discounts for day-of walk ins."

I’d say go for rush...I was my friend’s +1 (meaning


American Buffalo Discount  Feb 20 2020, 12:46:34 AM

Walked by as promised. As of 11:45p, no one was in line (thank goodness, because it is COLD... even in the alleyway). There was a guy putting up the large signage over the entrance though. He's estimating 4am :) 



American Buffalo Discount  Feb 19 2020, 01:58:59 PM

I'm curious as well and half-tempted to try the line, but I'm thinking that the Darren Criss fans will be there quite early. I'm seeing JLP tonight and will pass by the theatre on my way home to see if the line has begun - will report back.

Your friend danced directly in front of their seat or was brought up on stage?

She just stood up and danced at her seat. The stage is not set up with steps to allow going up on stage and with the AAA row taken out, there's lots of space to get up and boogy in the front row (center
