I'm really looking forward to The Inheritance! I believe I'll be making a trip over in November to check it out. I'll probably check out Slave Play and The Lightning Thief while in New York.
Really REALLY looking forward to Six in the winter/spring!
The Lion King...Bad. Aug 9

I saw the Friday matinee today, and I agree, I was slightly disappointed. I had SUCH high expectations, and was a little let down...
Of course the staging was AMAZING, and it was a visual feast, but the acting was a bit lazy (it was a special Friday matinee for charity so that could explain that). The stand out for me was Scar. I feel like “Be Prepared” was the song that really blew me away. The rest was a bit lukewarm.
And they threw in some really bad 4th wall breaking refe
It did end up selling out, and they kept on saying “10 more minutes” and then eventually came out 5 minutes before curtain and told us they wouldn’t be doing standing room. So that really sucked. 5 hours in line for nothing... But hey that’s the risk you take I guess.
I’ve been waiting outside since about 9am, and as soon as the box office opened at 10, I asked and they said that YES they do have standing room tickets available, but only if the show is 100% sold out. So I’m still waiting outside, hoping and praying that the 2PM matinee sells out so I can get a standing room ticket!
(I’m still the only person in the SRO line and the show starts in a little over an hour. It still

I absolutely love this idea! I would be the first in line to buy tickets!
Oklahoma! rush? Aug 7
2019, 11:01:42 AM
Just took advantage of the lottery-loser discount and got a ticket for today’s matinee for 59.50$! I’m not sure how the CITS seating works but my ticket says ORCH FL 230. Hopefully the seat isn’t too bad, but I’ve heard there’s no such thing as a “bad seat” in CITS so I’m really excited!!
Beetlejuice Rush Aug 7
2019, 10:56:43 AM
Rush update: I rushed today Wednesday, Aug 7th for the 8PM show. I showed up late (I was at CITS getting my lottery loser tickets for the Oklahoma! matinee in person to avoid the 13.50$ online service charge).
Showed up shortly before 10:30, and there must have been 40 people in front of me so I almost walked out. But I’m glad I didn’t!
I got a single rush ticket for the 8PM show ORCH LEFT Row P, seat 35 (I think it’s the third last on the left). The guy at the box office s

Ayyyy that’s amazing news! Glad she’s feeling better! Looking forward to seeing her in August!
Broadway Grosses: Week Ending 7/21/19 Jul 22
2019, 05:04:58 PM
Beetlejuice is really surprising me. I expected it to be on a slow decline, similar to Tootsie. I guess the positive word-of-mouth among tourists is working in its favor. If it keeps grossing above the million mark, it should be safe for now!
Need recommendations for a show this Sunday night 7/28 Jul 22

I’d highly recommend The Book of Mormon, but only if your daughter is old enough for to be okay with the vulgarity of the show. Lots of swearing, and a bit of sexual humor, but the overall theme is really sweet, and it’s unlike anything else on Broadway. In my opinion it would be a great way to end the trip.
I would say The Book of Mormon is suitable for 16+, but it really depends on your guys’ family dynamic. Listen to Hasa Diga Ebowai on YouTube. That’s the most vulgar moment of the s
Possible to see Evan matinee and 6 p.m. Fiddler? Jul 22
2019, 03:45:40 PM
Don’t buy a ticket for Fiddler just in case, but if i were you I would at least try. As soon as DEH ends, just haul a** to the next theatre. If you make it in time, you can just buy a ticket at the window (or a cheap ticket on stubhub ONLY if the theatre accepts mobile tickets). I’d say that if DEH ends anytime after 5:45 you won’t make it, but if you’re lucky and it ends between 5:30-5:40 you should make it with 2-3 minutes to spare.
You will literally need to rush out of the theatre
Im planning on seeing it in August, and im praying that Eva is feeling better by then. Ever since her amazing performance in Miss Saigon (one of my favorite shows of all time) Ive stanned. I’m literally cutting my summer vacation in Costa Rica short just to have time to make it to NY before university starts back up again. Obviously ill still see the show regardless if shes back or not, but im just praying that she’s healthy enough to perform by early August.
Hadestown Understudies Jul 22

Last I heard she was on a 2 week vocal rest due to nodes-like symptoms. But the fact that the show hasn’t made an official announcement is kinda bad news. Usually shows don’t announce stuff like this if they think there’s a strong chance the vocal rest will be extended. They wouldn’t want people to book tickets for after she’s scheduled to be back and then demand a refund when her sick-leave is extended.
Audience Having a Bad Time? Jul 21
2019, 12:05:10 AM
It’s not a Broadway story, but I saw The Woman In Black in London’s West End (phenomenal show btw) and there was a family in front of me who was clearly not enjoying themselves. The father was audibly snoring on several occasions, and the two teenage boys were play-fighting the entire second act, punching each other in the shoulders for shock factor when the scenes got tense. I even overheard the parents at the bar during intermission talking about how bored they were.
I was completely
Harry Potter seating suggestions? Jul 20
2019, 11:58:01 PM
I have tickets for early August, and I’m sitting in the left box in the 4th seat (farthest right from the stage). I know it says “obstructed view” but from the pictures i’ve seen on A View From My Seat it looks to be a great view. Should I be worried about missing any major effects/scenes?
So lately Ive been noticing a lot of posts talking about seeing an understudy in the role of Eurydice. I’ve also heard rumors that Eva Noblezada is recovering from an illness (nodes?) so will be off for quite a while. Im going to see Hadestown in August and although ive heard the understudy for Eurydice is absolutely fantastic, Im reeeeally hoping to see Eva. (Ive been a huge fan of hers ever since Miss Saigon)

I’ve read on here that the Tootsie lottery is almost imposible not to win. Often shows that are under-selling will just give all lottery entries tickets. I’ve also heard for this show you’re safe to walk up
I ended up getting tickets to Harry Potter, Frozen, Oklahoma! and Beetlejuice, and The Book of Mormon. I’m going to try my luck at lining up for Rush if Hadestown at 6am for a Wednesday matinee and am also going to see if I can manage to score a cheap ticket to a Chicago shortly before curtain (I arrive in manhattan around 5PM so it’s a risk)
I also have ONE more slot left, and am debating between The Prom and Be More Chill. Anyone have
