If there's some reason you want them earlier, I've had success picking up as early as the 11 AM. I've found it depends on whether the listing is still on TDF; if it's not, the B.O. may have gotten the manifest and allocated the tickets already.
Does anyone have any idea how I could watch this in the UK?
You'll need to 1) trick your internet browser into thinking you're in the US (look for articles online; it may take some troubleshooting but it's doable), and 2) visit https://www.fox.com/live/. It may be just streaming on there, but you may need a cable login (in which case, y

Totally agree -- was just commenting on that with my friend. We discussed how, in a way, the 2019 RENT reflects the highly commercialized and polished NYC of 2019, compared to the grittier, more real NYC of the 90s matched more by the original production.
Can you share any more detail? I looked through Waverly's playbill and nearly every big movie studio has some money in it, so I assumed it was a given that they'd make a film with at least Hedges from the cast after the run ended.

Went with comps last night, and yeah, it's pretty bad. Production values far lower than what you'd expect on Broadway, and misguided directorial choices from every angle. The best moments were when they just let Ruben sing, and when the ensemble members (working impressively hard) did comic bits. But the ratio of talking to singing was way too high, and the transitions especially needed a whole lot more thought.
There is a lot of potential, but unfortunately it's mostly was

My grandmother suffered from dementia so it hit close to home to see Gladys disappear into the disease. The play goes by very quickly with strong performances by most of the cast. I would definitely recommend checking it out before it closes!"
Seconded, big time. I've seen half a dozen shows since this one
The cheap seats have already been snatched up in the last few rows of the balcony so hope you have $120 saved up kiddies for a ticket AND can talk your parents into shelling out another $120 to take you. And that's BALCONY prices. Want to sit downstairs? $165. Want to sit CLOSE? $200. What teenager is gonna be able to afford that and what parent is gonna agree to take them when they have to pay that plus food plus transportation?
Curious about how this will turn out, considering the guy they chose to direct it.
He was assistant directing The Color Purple tour when I saw it in LA, and it was a disaster -- everyone seemed like they were in a different show from one another, and most laugh lines were missed (which is a particular concern with TPTGW). I only recognize his name because we found it so poorly directed that we took the time to look up the AD in the playbill. And when I

That's correct. It's just the one accessible bathroom so a long line can form. I'd get there early if you think she will need to use that one, and to the extent possible, get there quickly in intermission (or just try to plan t
Hotel thing has worked many times for me. But if it doesn't, or if you just want a sure thing, there's a new-ish service called Luggage Hero where you pay a buck or two per hour to store a bag in a variety of stores near both Times Square and Penn Station. https://luggagehero.com/
