I do think it depends day to day on how sold out the show is. As far as where the seats are, it is totally, 100% random where seats are assigned each day. I think the only show I know of that has a dedicated "Lottery Winner Area" is Wicked, because it seems like those seats are always towards the back of the orc
I got an email yesterday that Thousand Oaks will announce tomorrow sometime. I know it's one of the "2nd tier" stops, but considering how stacked Ahmanson and Pantages/Dolby are, I hope we get something more than the jukebox tours that are mostly prevalent in T.O. and Santa Barbara. I'll keep my season tickets regardless, because I don't want to give up my front row mezzanine seat, but it's frustrating to always be stuck with the less-exciting shows.
I've been watching the merch because I didn't get quite everything I wanted when I was there in October. The Dream Baby Dream tank is discounted down from $30 to $25, and I noticed they'd dropped the price of the OK! tee to $29.75, but it's back up to $35 now.
So nothings being advertised, but maybe after this weekend they'll see how much is left at the theater and go from there.
* Quite a few years ago I was visiting Family in MO and we saw a local production of Hairspray. When Tracy's in "jail" and Link's trying to break her out, the cell door kept swinging open (latch had broken). They're singing about how he can't get to her or whatever, and every time they let go of the door, it just swung downstage and they'd have to pull it back in place while still saying lines like 'get me out of here!'. It re
I'd love to see this cast one more time. I saw it when it came to LA earlier in the year and was absolutely blown away! It was my first time seeing Les Mis on stage, so I had nothing to compare it to staging-wise, but I loved the use of projections (especially in the tunnels) and the way they did Javert's suicide.
I saw this back in mid-October and was thinking I might miss seeing Ali and/or Damon, due to reports of their absences. I was bummed, but it was good to go in expecting that. Well when I DID see it, they were both in, but Rebecca was out (U/S was Sasha). I was just laughing with my mom about how she was someone I really wanted to see, but I just hadn't even been thinking I might miss her. We all know there's always a possibility, but I spent so much time saying "I hope Ali and Da
I saw Almost Famous a couple weeks ago and, having just been to the Marquis for Tootsie two days ago, definitely agree that a smaller theater feels more fitting for it. They fill up the space wonderfully at The Globe, but I think the Marquis is way too roomy for the staging to be as effective.

I saw this one, too! Don't remember too much of it as I was really young and we had just moved to Houston, but I remember enjoying it a lot, as did my mom.
Welp, I just impulse-bought a ticket, and I ain't mad about it. I got the Berkeley Rep mailer recently, but hadn't had a chance to peruse it fully. I missed Stark in KB and TKAM (seeing the latter in October), so that certainly pushed me over the edge. Was able to get a great third row, center seat for the night AFTER opening night and I'll probably rent a car for the drive (5ish hours up the coast) and just make a weekend out of it.

My family and I have tickets for 10/20 and I've been watching this thread closely as I'm also concerned. I feel like it should last til then, considering it's partially a numbers game and so many other musicals closed/are
I think I need to check this one out. Like many, I love the movie and basically wore out the CD when it came out. This could bomb, or just be lackluster in comparison to the movie, but San Diego is weekend-getaway driving distance from me and I think I'll regret not checking it out. I'm glad I saw this before tix go onsale tomorrow!
EmCee14 said: "For those who have seen it:If it was between center mezz front rowor center orch half way back, which is the better seat???"
I'm curious about this, as well. We bought 4 tix for dead-center first row mezzanine awhile ago because everyone was talking bout the massive production from Boston and how it's such a spectacle, that Mezz gives the best view. Then we started recently getting the pictures from the seats and it now seems like EVERY seat in
Pashacar said: "Agree with everyone that it's totally fine to cosplay to a show. But also want to point out that at closings, the rules are totally different, especially at cult-favorite shows like The Prom. Spongebob's closing was flooded with amazing homemade costumes, and it made the pre- and post-show that much more special. I think you can anticipate some of the same energy at The Prom's."
This is how I feel, too. I had tickets to JCM's original
