The Music Man should do the right thing and postpone/cancel the run now  May 19 2020, 12:36:14 PM
Though I have a $109 ticket for October 2020, I've gone ahead and bought a $99 April 2021 ticket this week just in case the October performance is canceled.

I will end up
A. seeing the show twice, or
B. receiving a Telecharge refund if either or both performances are canceled.

Telecharge is prompt with refunds, if necessary.

I'm speculating that if fall 2020 performances are canceled, some ticket buyers will jump at later tickets.

I'm a jumper who wan

WHEN WILL THEY ANNOUNCE  Apr 14 2020, 04:49:16 PM
I bought an October 22, 2020 ticket to THE MUSIC MAN on the first day of sales. I usually head to NYC twice each year, and always buy all my theatre tickets months in advance. But not this fall. I probably won't buy any other shows for that October 2020 week until the ALL CLEAR is given.

BWW encourages worthy responses and insightful posts to reach 1000, but a simple "I agree with your Broadway reopening date" will score a point.

ONCE UPON A ONE MORE TIME/Britney Spears musical to play pre-Broadway Chicago engagement  Mar 16 2020, 09:56:31 PM
Broadway in Chicago - BIC - does a fine job in bringing great theatre to several large Loop theatres.

But with THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA tryout being delayed a full year, and this spring's March 24 - April 12 tour stop of MY FAIR LADY being postponed to 2021, my guess is that BIC did not want to give its patrons too much bad news all at once. MJ the Musical was also pulled from its Chicago tryout and will open cold this summer at the Neil Simon.

I expect that BIC is working on an


What’s the last show you saw on Broadway before its closing?  Mar 15 2020, 10:07:09 AM
I have never cried during the Act 2 opener MASQUERADE at PHANTOM OF THE OPERA until the Thursday matinee.

I am glad I checked my messages at intermission.

WISHING YOU WERE SOMEHOW HERE AGAIN and POINT OF NO RETURN were poignant.

At Tuesday's extended intermission, there was a lot of hammering going on backstage.

Great production. Especially liked the orchestra, kitchen set, and LuPone.

Loved Lenk's book scenes, but her songs were just OK.


Broadway and the Coronavirus  Mar 12 2020, 02:08:01 AM
Pix 11 was asking Booth Theatre sidewalk patrons Wednesday night if they had any concerns about entering the theatre. Once inside, all the ushers had gloves on.

I spoke with usher Marjorie in mezzanine aisle 2. She said the substitute usher who contracted the bad news DID NOT LOOK WELL.

Oy vey. He should have called off.

Not sure if that's the exact line, but I LOVE the beautiful ending of THE SECRET GARDEN.
