Saw this Saturday night 6/23. What a bloody mess of a show. How can a new show in 2018 about supposed events that took place in 2016 feel so dated? The first 20 minutes of "play" just needs to be eliminated. Wasted time and then the character of the author has to explain whats going to happen next anyway. Shouldn't you have done that in the "play" part? At intermission the people sitting next to us who we didn't know asked us if

In New York, once a show opens, I think it’s usually pretty much set.Afterit officially opens in San Francisco, will they still likely be making significant changes? If so, maybe it would be better to see it later in the r
I'm a Go Go's fan and this doesn't appeal to me at all. Keep in mind I hated Mamma Mia. I may go anyway, but the Curran had better post a discount code as the theater is virtually empty for most performances I've checked. The final matinee May 6th looks about 10% of capacity!

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away I was able to walk up to the SRO line at 5:45pm and have a ticket in my hand at 6:10 for $27. Long ago in April.
Broadway Grosses: Week Ending 5/1 May 2

Because it's potential gross is $1,334,271 meaning it's only reaching 59.91% of it's potential. That means it's heavily discounting to achieve that 99% attendance figure. That would be fine for a two year old show but this is a new show.

I easily got tickets on a Tuesday in the SRO line. Got in line at 5:45 and had a ticket by 6:10 or so.... great view and I was the last "SRO seat" on the right by the door. Number 20. I paid $27....the guy in front of me in a actual "seat" paid $130.
