Frozen on Broadway - Where did they go wrong?  May 15 2020, 04:20:49 PM

I saw the show on December and it was by far my least favorite, out of the 7 shows I saw on my trip. I agree with everything others have said but am I the only one that really hated the score ? Besides Let it Go and maybe a couple of other numbers, all the new songs fell flat on their face. It was boring and unispiring ballad after ballad, for no reason and without driving the story forward. I had such high hopes for this, I love Disney, love Lopez, loved the film but at some point, I just co

Tina or Beetlejuice ?  Nov 9 2019, 04:59:08 AM

Thank you ! It's funny, it wasn't even on my radar, because back when it opened, I remember reading a lot of negativity here about it and since I was never a big fan of the movie, I gave up on it. But lately, when I decided to add another show to my list and looked better into it, it looks like spectacular, mindless FUN, which sounds like the best way to start my December Broadway week !

Tina or Beetlejuice ?  Nov 8 2019, 04:22:19 AM

Well, Beetlejuice it is and it filled my last remaining spot. A 4th row left orchestra aisle seat at a great discounted price, made my decision easier. I am so happy and excited ! 7 shows (Beetlejuice, Hadestown, Dear Evan Hansen, Moulin Rouge, Little Shop of Horrors, Come from Away and Frozen) plus the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, which I've never seen, in 5 days ! December can't come soon enough. Thank you all for your input and opinions. Broadway here I come !!! Tina or Beetlejuice ?  Nov 7 2019, 03:41:49 PM

DCDrama2, you changed things !!! I was getting ready to get a Beetlejuice ticket, since it sounds like I will enjoy it more (thank you ALL for your input) and there are great seats at great discounted prices and then I learn this !!! I LOVE Katharine McPhee and Waitress has a lot of great seats left for my date ! If there was a small chance they could get Jeremy Jordan again (who is my absolute favorite performer) for the last month, I would be in sheer Heaven ! There is not, is there ???

Tina or Beetlejuice ?  Nov 7 2019, 07:16:48 AM

Hello dramamama,

I understand perfectly what you are saying but nothing makes me happier than seeing a Broadway show when in New York, so even if I am not that enthusiastic about a show, it is still my preferred choice of a thing to do. Something about being in a Broadway Theater, no matter what I am seeing, fills my heart with joy and excitement ! This is my 5th time visiting the city, so I have done different staff and it's been 4 years since my last trip, so thankfully there

Tina or Beetlejuice ?  Nov 7 2019, 04:24:16 AM

Hello everyone,

I have an empty spot on Tuesday evening for my December 10-15 trip. Initially I wanted to leave the day open and try for Hamilton last minute tickets, since I would love to see it again after London. But I've been checking daily on both TM and StubHub and it looks like the lower price for decent seats is around the $250 - $300 mark with fees and this is too much, for a show I have already seen. Plus, I will be staying in DC before and after my New York trip and

Hey delilah,

I meant that it was the final schedule update since everythng is set, not my final post.   I definitely love talking with kind members like you ! Love Jonathan too but depends on the quantity of spit I will receive, will get back to you on that !

I was also quite happily surprised about the

My December Broadway Trip !  Oct 6 2019, 05:05:11 PM

UPDATE and Final one, I promise.

Just got my DEAR EVAN HANSEN tickets for Orch 2nd Row Center AND as I was looking at HADESTOWN Matinee for that Wednesday and getting dizzy from the prices, noticed that the Side Orch Row N had a somehow logical price ($200), compared to other pricing, so grabbed a ticket, 2 seats from aisle ! I remembered MollyJeanne Music's advice here, to sit on the Left side !

My December Broadway Trip !  Oct 6 2019, 04:13:33 PM

Will do !!! I'll be the one looking like a wet kitten, from what it sounds !

My December Broadway Trip !  Oct 6 2019, 12:36:44 PM

delilah thank you, I will be checking StubHub for both Hadestown and Hamilton last minute and hope for the best !

Miles, I know about Jonathan's spitting and being Front Row I have to see how that will turn out LOL. I definitely checked if he is playing, since he is the main reason I am seeing the show.

By the way, on a side note, Miles I read the reports from your trip and enjoyed your reviews and was SO touched about your experience with Madonna ! Being a HUGE fan

My December Broadway Trip !  Oct 6 2019, 11:00:37 AM

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to give you an Update, for anyone interested and for the wonderful members, who offered their thoughts, since I finalized my plan and bought most of my tickets. My Trip will be December 10-15 and here is my Final Broadway plan:

TUESDAY, December 10, I am leaving this open, to try for last minute HADESTOWN or HAMILTON good tickets at a reasonable price. So far, one or two days before the show, tickets pop-up at great seats and lower prices, so

So, my post is odd but you analyzing all my words is normal, right ? I still don't get YOUR problem, other than that you must have way too much free time ! Did anyone forced you to participate ? Are you the Board's Police ? Impressive, for a member who just joined 2 months ago !

But thanks for reminding me why I stopped posting on this board all these years, as did so many of the Original members, who were here from the beginning. Because of people like you...Let's leav

Joe Mayo, I believe that this is a DISCUSSION Forum and it has been this way since 2003, which is when I joined. So what Posts someone NEEDS or Doesn't Need to make, are up to himself and other members can choose to participate in the discussion or ignore the thread. I really can't understand why you find my post odd but you have the right to your opinion and I respect it.

The main reason for my Post was to reconnect with a Board that has been a part of my life for many yea

Another nice place to see Hadestown (especially since you said a lot of last-minute tickets are for the orchestra) is towards the back of the theatre, a little left of center. That's where my family and I sat when we saw the show, and we could see the sets and lighting pretty perfectly. In general, no matter where you sit, try to go left of center instead of right - the farther right you go, the more chance you have of missing a pretty pivotal moment

My December Broadway Trip !  Sep 29 2019, 05:39:27 AM

Thank you again, everyone,

I plan to start booking tickets for my 3 unmissable shows this coming week (MR, DEH and Frozen) and it looks like availability right now for good (expensive) seats is MUCH better for the week of December 10-14, compared to Dec 3-7, so it looks like my trip is 95% locked for then. I will do DEH for Wed evening, MR for Thursday evening and Frozen on Friday evening and leave Tuesday, the day of my arrival and Wed matinee open, to look for Hadestown and Hamil

Hello everyone and thank you so much for your useful comments, I knew I could count on you, keep them coming !

I hadn't thought about Mezannine for Frozen, food for thought and as for Hadestown, most of good last minute tickets I've been checking are Orchestra, I don't remember having seen a really good Mezanine ticket popping up but if one pops up at that time, I will seriously take all your advice into consideration ! I always have the feeling that Mezannine puts a distan

Hello everyone !

Loooong time member here, haven't posted in ages but I always visit and read your posts, since it is the best way to stay connected to my beloved Broadway scene !

I will be staying in Washington DC from late November to early January and there was, of course, nothing that could stop me, from travelling for a few weekdays to NYC and getting a good dose of some, much-needed, Broadway magic !

I initially thought of being in the city December

Hugh Jackman's "Once Before I Go" on the Boy from Oz, Patti's "Rose's Turn" and Aladdin's "Friend Like Me" are the ones I have personally experienced (and been a part of)

Team Madonna vs. Team Lin-Manuel  Apr 21 2015, 06:16:56 PM

"Your opinion would hold more weight if you weren't a Madonna fan. Your bias is showing.. "

Yes, I never concealed that fact, I love her to death, is that a crime ? Is this a thread that only her haters should post ? But I adore her as an artist, she is not my friend and I have no problem believing that she is a total bitch and I don't care about it, to be honest, since her personal behavior doesn't affect my life.

As i said, i foun

Team Madonna vs. Team Lin-Manuel  Apr 21 2015, 03:56:25 PM

"You would definitely be whistling a different tune if Madonna wasn't the perpetrator. Let's be real here. "

Well, if we REALLY want to be real, so would those who are attacking her, if it was somebody THEY loved. They would rush to find excuses from medical emergencies to trouble at home LOL It's human nature and it doesn't only apply to Madonna fans but all fans.

And I agree with songanddanceman2, what she did was unjustifiable an
