I saw the first performance of the tour in Austin last Tuesday, and I enjoyed it. The show is extremely contemporary, but I thought the design suited it well and it felt like it had a lot going for it. As Lot666 mentioned, I am also not sure why one would be expecting a minimalist, gritty version of Jesus Christ Superstar to dawn costumes that may be considered period attire. The choreography is super reminiscent of King Kong (considering they were both done b
Not familiar with the Lincoln Center Production currently running, but I recently saw a local production of ADMISSIONS and thought it was one of the most incredible contemporary plays I have ever seen. Definitely worth considering in my opinion.
The first national tour of MEAN GIRLS just finished their invited dress performance in Buffalo this evening. Did anyone go? Very excited to hear about it.
Saw a few pictures on Instagram/Twitter [IMAGE], and it looks like they made the LED set paneling a bit more "flat," and added an extra leg to each side of the stage to give it more depth, akin to the ANASTASIA tour set versus it's Broadway counterpart. This is

Hogan (or anyone for that matter), do you guys have any sort of resources, books, or podcasts you’d recommend, just to learn more about for-profit producing and commercial theatre administration as a whole? Really love reading these threads and ya’ll seem to know a lot about how it’s split up. I’m sure immediate experience within the industry would probably be where you’ll learn the most about it, but second to that, what would you recommend?
I would absolutely count Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark. Even if it didn't have concrete anticipation behind it ala "Wow, I'm sure this show will be great!..", it most certainly had massive names (Taymor, Bono & The Edge) behind it and was being heavily publicized as (one of) the most expensive shows to ever open on Broadway. It certainly had a unique path to NYC, but it's most definitely made a name for itself as being the 21st Century

As soon as Andre and the rest of the cast entered at the top of the show, they got a one minute long standing ovation, before the show even began. I was talking to an Usher who said that in addition to all the creatives (obviously), every single investor for the show was present tonight.
I was loitering in the house after purchasing a shirt at the end of the show, and was very lucky to briefly say hello to

Saw the show tonight, the energy was through the roof. Santino got a one-minute long applause after the Tony-award line.
As far as transphobia goes... people are overblowing this. If you walk into this show ready to get offended, then you’ll get offended. It’s definitely uncomfortable here and there, but it’s pretty well established that is part of what gives the show the moral compass it has. It’s satirical and shouldn’t be taken any more seriously than the plethora of homophobic jokes

Even if the score itself is mediocre, I give MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR props to the producers of this album for letting them include the overture, various dance breaks and dialogue sequences, and etc. I really wish we got more of that on today’s cast albums...
I just saw Be More Chill for the first time today, and I have to give it to Tiffany Mann for “Smartphone Hour (Rich Set a Fire),” she is a force of nature and it was EASILY my favorite part of the whole show. What a number!
Entered the lottery for the Saturday's 2:00 PM performance, but I don't think I'm going to purchase if I win, because I'm just waiting to make sure my flight into the city isn't delayed. I'll probably end up hitting Box Office Rush or TKTS either way... Rushing the show through it's box office would be the best option, before going to the TKTS booth if they're sold out, correct?
Saw this in Austin a few weeks ago. I'm new to CATS and I thought it was great, given how opinionated people are over it. I don't know much about the history of the show and how much it may deviate from it's original run at the Winter Garden/Neil Simon, but if you go in with an open mind it's just a fun, weird-a** spectacle. It's an Equity tour and I definitely thought the production value was great.

Kiss Me Kate tour? Jun 1

I’d love to see it tour but I don’t think it’s likely, like you said.
What shows have Roundabout toured in the past? Anything Goes comes to mind, but that show ran for at least a few years on Broadway unlike Kiss Me, Kate.
I think I'll go ahead and enter BMC Lottery the night beforehand, and then I'll swing by the Studio 54 Box Office around 11:30 AM that morning for Kiss Me, Kate, regardless of what happens with BMC. If they're sold out of in-person Rush, then I'll head over to TKTS assuming it's available over there. If that falls though and KMK doesn't work out, then I'll still have the Lyceum Box Office to check out. I think I have my fair share

Glad to hear that, thank you!
Where were your seats for both performances? Also, if you don't mind, which did you prefer?
Hey guys, I’ll be heading up to the city (flying into Newark) on Saturday, June 8th. Our flight should be landing around 10:30 AM, and I was definitely hoping I could get into the city to grab tickets to a matinee probably around 11-12 PM. I’ve bought tickets to all the shows I care the most about, I just wanted to hold off on the morning-of matinee incase our flight gets delayed.
First and foremost I’d LOVE to get tickets to Kiss Me, Kate, and if not th
