I got to the box office as it opened this morning. There were about 10 people ahead of me. I asked for a seat close to the front and he gave me front row side aisle for the matinee. Laugh out loud funny - stellar cast. You'd never know Will Swenson was a recent sub. He was hysterical. See it if you can. Sad to see it close so abruptly.
How about King's Theatre in Brooklyn. It's so beautiful - excellent sightlines - 3000 seats. That would be a great opportunity for the renovation investment and the neighborhood. Maybe a tour can make a long stop there. According to King George it is his show, after all.
I won one lottery ticket for Tuesday, March 8th. However when I entered the code and chose 1 seat, Ticketmaster would not let me buy one seat. There were 22 open seats but they were only in pairs. I tried to call but the phone lines close at 600pm. Even though the email says I have until 1159pm to buy my ticket, it is impossible. Extremely frustrated.
Saw the matinee this afternoon. Rannells looks great. Same physicality and inflections as the other 2 Georges. His accent went in and out during What Comes Next but he'll correct that. He's not as epic a spitter as Groff which is nice if you're sitting near the front. So glad to see him in this role - love that goofy twinkle in his eye that I first saw in Mormon. The show is better than ever. Perfection.
I asked at the box office yesterday. The earliest date a box seat was available is in August. He found me side orchestra seats, row L for October 28 and row C for Feb 3. Both are Wednesday matinees, $167.00 each.
Yes, that's how I feel too. Yesterday as Lin was walking to his seat I smiled at him and he winked at me. I melted like a teenager.
The show is in such good shape. I love the constant motion. The cast moves in and out with such synchronicity - on and off the turntables, with or without props. The lyrics, choreography, music and lighting all come together and like a flash the scene changes and the narrative rapidly moves on. It's like watching a Balanch
