The 2008 Broadway revival also combined Act 2 and 3 by cutting the second intermission. I believe it was only 2.5 hours. But the run time will be entirely dependent on the show's pacing and the portrayals by the actors. At this point it's anyone's guess (lest we forget Taye Diggs dragging Hedwig's runtime from less than two hours to almost 2.5 hours).

I could imagine this being a little bit of a gray area that would need to be battled and argued in courts, but the organisation would definitely need to tread carefully around this area and I imagine are very carefully seeking legal advice right now about their options (hence the delay of any statement or action). Very very tricky situation."
The law in question would be the Equality Act of 2010, A
LizzieCurry said: "I think part of the problem is that there ARE a number of people who legitimately DON'T know they're not supposed to record. The show is a part of their vacation, just like when they went to the Empire State Building and Katz's Diner and took video there. It's not always the instagram/twitter stans recording for engagement."
Not only that, but with many shows not making announcements, and theaters allowing pictures before the show,
August: Osage County and God of Carnage were big hits on Broadway that had less-than-stellar film adaptations. Part of the success of these types of plays is the "energy in the room" factor and the fact that the originating actors are more connected with their characters than other actors who take them on. They need to "open up" the play for film, otherwise most people will probably be bored.
It seems that some people are referring to the stop clause in the plural, as if there are multiple ones in each agreement. However, it is just clause in the agreement and lists ALL the reasons it can be implemented. The stop-clause exists primarily so that the theater landlord can kick out an unprofitable show for a profitable one. One might ask why, if a show is paying rent, would the landlord care if it's profitable? The staff (managers, ushers, heads of departments) are
Until the tickets are released (and you can then try and list them on StubHub), Ticketmaster is your only option. When did you buy the tickets? I believe the pre-sale and the first two public releases permitted the return of tickets up to two weeks before the performance. Also. it's Spring Break season, so with higher demand they may be more willing to make the exchange.
The show has been employing dynamic pricing since last year, and holding back a significant number of ticket
I wouldn't stress about getting tickets. If London and Broadway have taught us anything, it is that the productions are holding back the release of a decent number of tickets. Unless you are going with a large number of people, it shouldn't be too hard to get tickets, especially if you are flexible with dates.
Not to diminish the show's success, but the low running costs, inexpensive production costs, and the fact that the average touring house is twice the size of the Schoenfeld on Broadway, it's no surprise. Subscription series practically guarantee a show can recoup on the road.
Not having seen a production of Oklahoma! other than 2002 revival, I thought it was pretty good. And I'm not sure why the previous poster thought the gimmick of having Laurey and Dream Laurey be the same woman didn't pay off. Musical theater has evolved past having separate dancers from singer, and there is no real reason to have such a separation. And while the actress was British, she spoke with an American accent, so it shouldn't matter.
I saw it on tour as well, and the one thing I thought was an improvement from Broadwa (and the West End) was the character of Ellen.I think the actress playing Ellen on tour wonderfully negates that aspect, by simply changing her tone and inflection when she tells Kim "he's your child, he's not mine." On Broadway and in the West End , the actresses had this harsh tone that portrayed Ellen as having a lack of enthusiasm for raising someone else's child. On
It's a very hot ticket, but the rescission of the return policy has caused problems for some people. Since tickets cannot be refunded and the box office will not try and re-sell your tickets for you, people need to find alternative ways to sell their tickets.
