My girlfriend told me that after Labor Day, the number of theatergoers on Broadway go down tremendously, therefore all the shows see significant drop on their ticket sales. Some shows are greedy and snobby and will prefer to have hundreds of empty seats rather than sell at TKTS. Kudos to the DEH producers for being generous and thoughtful in using this opportunity to give back to the community. That shows they have guts to do what’s right rather than what’s good for their poc

He's basically done that already. His initial run that started last October was 8 weeks, but he kept extending it. Now his final show is scheduled for December 15 (with the filmed version dropping on Netflix that night).
You might say he's BORN TO...extend his limited...RUN."

Nowadays critics have been more wrong than right. We see so many shows dying even after rave reviews. And the opposite is true. I remember reading disgusting bad reviews about Mean Girls and look where they’re now. Saw Pretty Woman here in Chicago and they literally took our city by storm. Never seen anything like it. And I never got why the criti

Wow, that's very expensive, at least for me (and I loooooveeeeee Hamilton!)
Maybe we should give Ben Platt the benefit of the doubt. The guy is not chopped liver. DEH did (and is doing) well so IMOHO he was one of the reasons why it was a success. Maybe he needs a better setting for the audition tape. Looks like he just shot that video out of his parents’ basement, so he might’ve have a lot of distractions around (his Nintendo, Playstation, fish tank, lol). Jokes aside, I think he got a very nice voice. That being said, just a little off-to

She seemed to like Waitress better in terms of music, but Mean Girls she liked the story. So I guess if you are more into the story go with Mean Girls, but if you’re more into music then pick Waitress."
Thanks! I'll consider those points when I decide. :)
