worst direction? Really? I didn’t see that at all. I wasn’t a huge fan of the set design, but I tho

I sat in downstairsand looked up to see the sound/light board and there appears to not be one in the center of the mezz. Both boards are in the back, right,corners of the house on both levels.
Fun show. I think it could use a bit of trimming. Not quite sure how to describe Ms. Golden's performance. She does not appear to be directed to become badass throughout the show. It kind of happens but

For those who have attended an invited dress rehearsal, are they usually performed to a packed house, or somewhat empty? Who is invited to them? Ive never been to one, but was given the opportunity to attend one in the future so Im curious about what to expect. Thanks!
uncageg said: "I got tickets a week ago. Really looking forward to this one.
When looking at tickets it says that the back row of the mezz is partial view. Hope I am not up theregot my tix on TDF."
i was curious about partial view seating at a venue this small, so I called the venue. Sounds like there is a lighting or sound board table in the front of the mezzanine, almost in the center, which could block the view. Kind of a bummer.
Is it immature to ask late shows for a spot to perform? Jul 6

Joe Iconis is a quirky, funny, humble man. He isn’t whining. He is being a human being. People on Twitter are always commenting on being disappointed by life. Why isn’t he allowed? If you don’t like it, don’t read it, but it’s hardly whiny or begging. It’s human. He was hoping his show would be a success and it wasn’t. Is he not allowed to feel bummed out by that? This board’s desire for his failure has become a ridiculous comedy, and it’s remarkably uncalled for. I liked BMC (I’m a middle aged

AGREE!! But also, there are a lot of really talented people in the cast (brad Oscar and Alan Green, and also I love Christina Sajous). I got tickets to see it twice next month. Can’t
Annie Golden, Broadway Bounty Hunter Jul 3

I saw it. It’s extremely well done, tasteful, and incredibly sweet. I do not anticipate cultural backlash. Annie Golden is fierce, and Alan H. green is just tremendous. The music is beautiful. It does have that campy Joe Iconis feel (small cast, a little messy, totally ridiculous), and it’s really funny. I hope it will be well received, bc i really liked it. I also can’t even fathom how the second row at Greenwich House in the mezz is partial view...
BroadwayLuv2 said: "For those that have been to the dress rehearsals before do they allow digital cameras? Outside food or drink?
For seating do they allow everyone to kind of spread out or is everyone sitting directly next to each other?"
we are being given our tickets. We don’t have them in hand until later today. Are you under the impression that it is general admission? I haven’t seen the tickets so I don’t know. They are being given
CT2NYC said: "Unfortunately, Goodspeed had to cancel several performances, including mine, because Blake Jenner had to depart the production, and they couldn't find a replacement. I'm still annoyed about that, but, in any event, a friend who saw the show said thatPeter Dinklage is not a singer, to put it nicely."
Same here. I called and begged them to let me do standing room, but nope. I was so annoyed.
UncleCharlie said: "They'remarketing the show as best and as aggressively as they can trying to be as creative as they can. That's what they'resupposed to do. Why is that seen as a weakness or an act of desperation?"
This!!!! Yes yes yes!!
They plan out the marketing ahead of time. It’s not an act of desperation. And the title of this thread is so ridiculous. The desire on this board for this show to fail is really not cool. I’m 40

She also commented on it in December when I saw her at a private event. She said it’s still in development, whatever that means, but she played a song from it. It was one of her songs from the 80’s but arranged differently.

I don’t think it occurs to most people that one of the actors siblings/parents/friends could be sitting right in front of them. I also think that many people would say “this is what they signed up for. They know people will bash them and their performance.” The actors and creative team are people too. People who are working their asses off I might add. I think it is common courtesy to not act like a jerk, when you don’t know who could hear it. I mean that generally, in life. Yes, everyone is en
I’ve sat in both a box and the first few rows of the mezzanine at the Rodgers. The box is a fun experience but the view is nowhere near as good as the mezzanine. Def mezz seats are better. It’s a tiny theater and the view is good everywhere, but you miss a bit when you are in a box. Have fun!
