I have been awake since 3am, and no way am I making this performance tonight. It's too late for me to exchange it. I hate for this ticket to go to waste, and none of my friends want it. Anyone want it? The box office says someone else can pick the ticket up, no problem. I'm leaving work at 5:30 and will be on a train soon, so my internet connectivity may get spotty, but first person to respond gets it. I'll PM you my name, and that's all you
I have a friend who's visiting from out of town in mid-October, and I want to get the best possible seats - preferably in the orchestra, because I'm two hairs away from Helen Keller. Rush tickets are $27, my TDF membership gets me $45 seats. Has anyone here used their TDF membership recently, or rushed this play? Thanks!
*spoiler alert* Was not expecting three characters to croak! I found it weirdly dark, but maybe that's the point, and I went in expecting Hello Dolly, or something. But John Turturro appeared to be having a blast and Zoe Wanamaker is my everything. I sat a few rows behind Ben Brantley and watched everyone else watching Ben Brantley.
For me, it's definitely been worth it! I've gotten a lot of great orchestra seats (some premium), many fine mezz seats, and only one balcony seat through TDF. I'm a public librarian, and TDF's enabled me to attend the theater waaaay more than I could afford normally.
As somebody who's still trying to get into Hamilton via the lottery/cancellation line - Madonna can bite me. Lin-Manuel has been nothing but lovely every time he's passed by the huddled masses yearning to breathe free inside the Newman theater.
I saw this show on Saturday, and have been smiling ever since. My boss informed me that if I didn't stop humming the score at the ref desk she was gonna write me up or physically strike me. It was wonderful.
I'm glad NPH turned lots of new people on to Hedwig. But I want everyone to see JCM: "CRATE!" And I'm so, so lucky to have seen this show seven times. I hope JCM is being filmed for the archives at Lincoln Center. I fear only NPH was.
NPH was the first time I'd ever seen Hedwig, any Hedwig. So I thought he was pretty much the second coming of Christ. But when I saw JCM, I couldn't imagine anyone else in the role. He *is* Hedwig, while the others just play Hedwig, at least to me. I was lucky enough to see NPH twice (and get face-humped!) and MCH once. They were both great in the role. NPH was a consummate showman, and MCH was like a really butch Betty Boop. But I've seen JCM four ti
I would have been happy for Broderick to play the straight man, but he was so stilted and unnatural it consistently took me out of the play. I was flabbergasted. The woman sitting next to me remarked on it, too. Maybe he was having an off night.
On a happier note, if y'all haven't read Martin Short's recent autobiography, do! Or better yet, listen to the audiobook. In it he describes being cast in his first real play - as a predatory gay prison

It's not one-on-ones onstage, in front of a crowd, though, which is what I think freaks the husband out. Namo, I think you're right about Hecate's ring - it wouldn't fit on a guy's finger.
