I was prepared to be disappointed but ended up loving this trailer. Agree with above comments that it has an epic feel and vibe. I love the updates to their looks, especially Anna's. And I am loving the hints that it will have to do with Fall because that's basically an entirely new visual palette/world. I hadn't considered it before, but another Frozen movie that takes place all in snow would feel repetitive (though I recognize that may sound weird, given that it's called....
I have often thought about how useful it would be to have a source for historical TKTS data, where you could view trends over time, for example to determine what day of the week is mostly likely to have a certain show available, or how many times over the last two months has a particular show appeared on the board, etc. I think it would be very handy for trip planning purposes since it would enable you to make the most educated guesses about what might be available when you are looking to see
Saw this posted online and thought I'd share. Cadillac is doing a promotion where if you test drive the XT4 before the end of February, you get a free $100 gift code from Ticketmaster. My husband already did the test drive and I'm signed up to do mine next week. I will happily do the test drive and listen to their sales pitch for the equivalent of a free show ticket!
Jeremy is my favorite, but I don't love what they did to his singing on this track. Sounds very processed/auto-tuned to me. As far as the cover itself, I don't mind, it's cool if they want to get creative with the arrangement, and I'm sure they're well aware not everyone will like it. I just wish his voice was clearer and/or sounded more like it normally does.

YES. The friend I saw it with summed it up in a similar way; that it was more like seeing a good college or community theater production than a national tour.
I saw the touring production of RENT in Detroit last night and walked away so disappointed. The cast was all so young, with many having only one or two regional credits before joining this tour, and some coming direct from college. The music sounded oddly thin to me in places, like it was missing parts/instruments. Much of the singing was flat and had bad harmonies.
I used to LOVE Rent and saw it maybe seven or eight times between 2000-2006, but haven't seen it since. Am I just get
Honestly, when this was announced I was super excited and immediately made plans to buy tickets. Then Hugh did his performance of The Greatest Show on The Today Show...and it was...not good. I love him and The Greatest Showman, but that performance felt so awkward and wooden, and his singing didn't sound great. After that I couldn't stomach paying lots of $$$ to see more of the same live, and decided against buying tickets. I have at least one other friend who had the same reaction.
American Son is an excellent and important play, and the reason reactions are so meh (here on the boards and by the actual critics) is because they are mostly written by white people, for whom the subject matter just isn't as resonant.
Apologies if this appears elsewhere; I did my best to search but could not find this exact question addressed.
I'm coming to NYC in October and plan to see Come From Away. I just looked on Telecharge and there are front row/center section tickets available for $59 ($70 with fees). This seems suspiciously low to me, and I'm wondering if it's because the stage is very high, or has zero leg room, or some other reason that would make sitting there unpleasant. I am 5ft 6in. Woul
Hi all, I'd appreciate some advice/insight. I'm coming to NYC for a five day Broadway Binge in October (the 9th-13th). I definitely want to see American Son (I heart JJ), but I don't have a good sense of whether this show is likely to sell out/get super expensive vs. end up on TKTS. It will be in its first week of previews.
I've never been to a Broadway play before (only musicals), and I don't really know how popular Kerry Washington is; I know she's on Scandal,
Not gonna lie, I'm pretty sad his new project isn't a musical, but of course support Jeremy doing whatever makes him happy. I'll still probably come to NY to see it. I wonder if it's safe to assume he'll be in it for the whole run (16 weeks)?
So, back in the 90s I LOVED Phantom and have seen it on tour maybe 4 times. I saw it for the first time on Broadway 4 years ago, and then again just a couple months ago, in April. When I left the theater this most recent time, I really felt like the whole experience had changed for me. It's such an overdone show, and that used to be fun, but now it feels heavy and cumbersome. I had forgotten how much of the stage time is devoted to the opera-within-the-opera, with super garish costumes an

Did you see that he barely got into the chair in the last scene lol he barely got his cape clipped so he can disappear."
Yes!! I was seated right in front of the chair and was holding my breath when I saw him struggling with
