I do think some of the comparisons were intentional (not "Stars" but at least "Stop". Jeff Richmond is by and large a comedy composer who writes songs as gentle nods to genres and songs people already know (ie 30 Rock, SNL, Kimmy Schmidt). So I think the references are there as easter eggs where some people will get the joke and others will think it's just another number. I can't

Box seats in the Booth are extremely obstructed. You'll miss about 1/3 of the stage depending on which side you're on. While most of the action happens downstage center, the actors are all over the set throughout the play since there are very few exits and entrances. If you're looking for cheap, try stubhub closer to show
I sat last row orchestra house left a few weeks ago and can say they are slightly obstructed. You can see most of the second level of the set but to see heads of the actors you do have to duck down to get the full view depending on how tall you are. Not a lot happens up there but there is a lovely scene with Matt Bomer in his underwear that I practically had to squat down in the row to see. It's not terrible, but I also didn't pay full price for my ticket so I couldn't compla
I was in last Saturday trying rush for a different show and went over to Waitress as a backup. When I arrived at the Waitress Box around 10:30, there was only one rush ticket left for the matinee. So, if you're looking for one ticket and don't care which show, I'd say you don't have to be there much before the box opens, but if you need two and are trying for a specific show, i'd say 9AM is probably a safe bet. I will note that a few women who got rush right before me

We were seated in the right orchestra, second row seats. The line sitter got there at 4:00AM and was 7th in line. I don’t know what you consider “breaking the bank”, but I thought this was a fair price to see this show. Good luck! It was great.....I hope you get to see it."
Anyone tried the cancellation line for Mean Girls successfully/how much did you pay? I've had no luck with the online or in-person lottery and want to know if it's worth it to try the cancellation line next Thursday. I'd like to see the show before the Tonys without breaking the bank.
I went to the box office yesterday (Sunday, 5/5) for opening. There were about six of us in line at 10 and were told that they wouldn't sell an SRO ticket until at least two hours prior to curtain and that the matinee most likely wouldn't sell out clean so we should expect them not to be doing it. So if you're planning on doing it, make sure to check telecharge in advance or you'll be disappointed.
A weird phenomenon happened though that there were n
Does anyone know about the height of the wall separating the orchestra from the standing room? My boyfriend and I want to try this for the matinee tomorrow, but he's on the shorter side and I have some shorter friends who've done standing room at other theaters and have had a bit of difficulty.
I meant open as in having tickets available more in the July/August time frame, but likely this show will have a digital lottery/rush through TodayTix unless it sells *really* well. Most Roundabout shows do if you're willing to try for tickets on the day of!
If you're 18-35, you can sign up for free hiptix account through Roundabout and that gives you access for up to 2 rear orchestra seats for $25. There's a limited number per performance but I grabbed mine just a few days ago and plenty of dates later in the run seemed open.
If you mean lotto, they are always busy, they only do Rush on Wednesday."
Yes, I was wondering how big the crowds had been for the in-person lottery. A friend of mine went right after opening and there were 19 tickets for about 40 people so she had pretty good odds. I know there's no telling who will show up, but I didn't know if the numbers had changed much since then.
