saxpower said:You're missing my point. LOGICALLY, shows won't go on for a while. But the reality is, RIGHT NOW, they are scheduled, and people who have tickets and have made arrangements need to know whats going on. Refunds are not coming without cancellations. Technically, unless they are absolutely barred from re-opening, they can have performances starting April 13 and decline refunds because performances occurred. It would be reckless, unwise, and against public interest, but

This thread being bumped caused me to reflect on the first post, and how outlandish it seemed at the time, less than a month ago. Wow.
All of the content they're still posting around it (seemingly with CSC's blessing at every turn) indicates that it's their first artistic priority, which gives me hope, as I don't think I've been this excited for a production and cast......literally ever. Obviously CSC's financial motivations are totally aligned with that, as well.
And nothing against CSC's 20/21 season, but I'd gladly pay extra to see this in place of any of those pieces. And I thi

This is sort of a separate discussion, but my assumption with shows that have not yet started performances is that many will simply be postponed. Especially at nonprofits, where they can

I’ve had many tickets refunded over the years and I’ve never seen this before."
That doesn't seem right. Credit card refunds are the easiest to do. I would call your credit card company."
Just bought a "ticket" to stream BJJ's Gloria after the run got cut short. A great idea and glad they were able to act so quickly to do something to raise funds and make art available during this crisis. In my case, they're getting revenue from an East Coaster they never would have otherwise.

It'd be a headache to go through all of the refunding again, so I'm strongly leaning towards "wait it out." Has anyone else bought tickets again yet, or are we all choosing to wai
Half-serious question: is this production a money-laundering operation?
First they extend months out, while comping at every performance. Now they are the only show to continue performances during the Coronavirus crisis. There has to be something fishy going on with its finances.
BenElliott said: "Hey everyone. Kind of a weird question. I won two front row lottery tickets for tonight, but the show was cancelled. Is there any way to transfer those tickets to a later date or am I just out of luck?"
Assuming a refund will automatically be processed for you, I don't think there is. But I don't think you will have trouble getting in at lotto or rush price after it reopens.
ZeroMustTell said: "Having been in the mezzanineon the 7th, I find it odd I’m getting all my infofrom a message board. Wouldn’t the proper response from the Booth or Schubert’s be to contact those ticket holders and provide them with pertinent information? I imagine not everyone who was there realizes they were in possible contact."
Unfortunately they are probably trying to disassociate from it as much as possible so as to limit their liability.
The article said they were managing the line, so I imagine they were outside.
Also, many experts say that most of us will get this eventually, and nearly 90% of cases will be very mild and pass without any need of intervention. Just keep an eye on yourself, take the appropriate precautions, and seek treatment if you start to have a fever or trouble breathing.

I'm sure they need some time to figure this out, but I wouldn't be surprised if the major nonprofits follow suit, even though their houses are generally in the 200-person range. Perhaps they will play to half-capacity crowds....
Selfishly, I don't want to miss Unknown Soldier or Assassins, but we'll have to see how this thing goes
