I believe women. There are many men in the theatre industry (I can think of a few names off the top of my head) who are known in the community for having sexually assaulted & raped women. No one has come out with allegations against them, and it's a shame that they will continue to work in this industry. It's all super hush hush. I'm not naming any names, although I do expect this post to be deleted anyway. It really sucks that these predators are still working, and the delete

Jenn Colella is Elizabeth in If/Then. It happened once, and I'm still upset I wasn't there. There was an audio of "Always Starting Over" somewhere online, but it must have been taken down, as I can't find it.

Went this morning- got there around 5:30 am. There were about 8 people in front of me, including 2 people in a tent who had camped out since midnight. By 10 am, there were over 30 people. The box office only sold 6 tickets (I overheard that they were all singles, meaning pairs didn’t get to sit together). So 3 people walked away with tickets. It looks like you have to get there by 2 am for tickets - eek! There were no SRO tickets being sold at 10 am, by the way.
Saw it last night - it's long. The first act was 2 hours, and the whole thing ended after 11 (the second act was about 45 minutes). I saw Much Ado with Lily Rabe & Hamish Linklater ~5 years ago at the Delacorte, and the pacing was a lot better in that production. Granted this was the first preview, but I don't think they can do that much restructuring.
I rushed during previews, so look for more up-to-date responses, but I got a ticket at about 7:30 pm on a Friday night for an 8 pm show. I walked up to the box office right as the house opened, and they had 1 single rush ticket left. It was on the extreme side of the orchestra, so definitely partial view. If you have TDF, I'd recommend going that route.
ctorres23 - I hope you never find yourself in the BMI Musical Theatre Workshop. You will not come out alive with those views on imperfect rhymes.
There are many reasons lyrics should have perfect rhymes. Clarity is a big one - to a "standard" audience member (ie. not someone who's going to see the same show 20 times/listen to the cast recording 100 times), the listener gets 1 shot to understand the lyric. Especially when you get into tricky wordplay, ala Sondheim
OP here. Thank you for all your feedback - this is such a great discussion! I'm not trying to start any sort of argument, but I will say that as a gay woman who is very involved in the queer women + non-binary scene, I totally understand where you're coming from. When I reached out to Ethan, I didn't know his sexual orientation. I still don't know. I didn't know he had a wife when he accepted the role, but like others have said, that doesn't mean he's straight. He
Shameless promo: Ethan Slater (Spongebob Squarepants) is starring in a one-night only staged reading of Significant Other on 1/31, which will be the first time the play will be performed in NYC since the Broadway run closed. Press release. Are you serious? Dec 29

As the person who posted about Network a few days ago, I'm just chiming in to say that I 100% inquired about a refund. Not sure why you assumed that wasn't the first attempt.
This might not be the most kosher, but I have a ticket for a past performance of Network that was never used that I'm looking to sell. I'm happy to call the past date line and do the work to get you a ticket for the night you'd want to go. I've past dated other shows before, and they're generally pretty accommodating if there's space, as long as it's a weekday evening.
I paid $89 + fees for the ticket, which was center aisle mezzanine. I have no clue where y
