Longacre Seating Feb 9
2019, 03:30:20 PM
Update: I’m sitting in E18 - rear balcony off to the side - and I have PERFECT view!! Possibly even better than rear mezz, since the slope is so steep. Definitely recommend if you’re on a budget.
How bad is the balcony at the Longacre? After much research, I'm giving up on discounts and shelling out full price for The Prom tomorrow - debating whether to spend $130 for a bad seat in the rear mezz, or $70 for a truly crappy seat up in the balcony. Obviously I don't need a fantastic view (normally I just go with the cheapest option), but I hate being so far from the stage that I feel totally removed from the performance. Is it worth splurging or should I save the extra $60?<

Not sure if this has been said, but I assume part of the reason its cost-prohibitive is that child actors earn standard Equity salaries here; in the UK they do not.
Hamilton Pre-Sale - Multiple Devices? Nov 12

I got a email that I was selected for the Verified Fan pre-sale tomorrow - super excited, I’ve been waiting for this particular block of tickets for a loooong time. (Told my son 3 years ago we could go when he was 8, and his 8th bday is in June 2019.) But the last time I bought Ham tix was before they started the Verified Fan stuff, so I have questions!!! Any advice would be appreciated :)
First of all, I’m wondering if the method that worked for me before is going to backfire. Back in
Thanks so much, all! Sounds like he’d be fine, and I know he’d enjoy the big production numbers so we’ll probably go for it. I really appreciate the input!

My 7yo saw a promo video clip of KB and really wants to see it. I’ve actually seen it, but it was several years ago and I don’t remember enough details. Help me out? Is this a terrible idea? What red flags exist within the show? We are a queer family so nothing in that area bothers me, and cursing is ok, but violence, substance abuse, and especially overt sexuality would be problematic, and any mentions of murder or suicide are a big no. He also tends to get bored if portions of the story move s

Not really sure why you’re bothering to post this if you’ve already bought the tickets?
I would suggest seeing the movie first. It is only VERY LOOSELY based on the Hans Christian Anderson story - really they have very little in common. And the show, from what I’ve heard, is pretty much a glorified version of the movie brought to life onstage. I suspect you’ll enjoy it more if you’ve seen the source material.

Thanks for the info regarding: probably August. Would love updates if/when anyone hears anything. I can’t seem to get the Hamilfan emails to go anywhere but my junk mail, so I never see them, and in general i haven’t been in the loop as much as used to be, but I need to jump on the next block of tickets.
I saw the show ages ago, but my son was 5 at the time and wanted to see it too, so I told him the minimum age was 8. He still whole-heartedly believes me! Lo and behold, the next bloc

I saw it, and was into the cast album for a little while. I found it sort of strange but charming. Having never seen the movie, I just assumed all the odd elements came straight from there. I will say that Phillipa was an absolute joy to watch from beginning to end, and I thought a couple of the songs - particularly Adam C-B’s big numbers - were pretty great.
Ticketmaster Issues? May 24

No, but I’ve been trying to unload some Frozen tickets - bought for several different dates because I wasn’t sure when we’d be able to go. Have they flagged me as a scalper??
Anyone else having trouble with the Ticketmaster website? It won't load on my computer - I keep getting "Forbidden" messages. On my phone I can log in, but can't access my tickets or account info. Is it just me?

If you’re interested in Angels in America, you could just see Part 1. I haven’t seen this production, but generally it stands on its own pretty well.
Also be warned that Friday and Saturday evenings are the hardest times to get tickets, regardless of how you’re going about it. If it’s an option for you to pay full price for the shows you want to see, I would advise going to the box office and buying them directly. Keep in mind that most shows have a range of prices, so “Full Price” can

Um, here’s a thought: visit the show’s website and click on “tickets.” It will tell you which vendors are legitimate. And give you a direct link to Ticketmaster.
My 7yo has recently taken an interest in SOR, and I’d love to take him to see it IF I can get cheap tickets. I know there are $59 seats readily available, but if I can do better than rear mezz I’d like to try. Unfortunately we’re down in Maryland now, so I don’t have the same flexibility to jump on discounts that I used to. I’m also not that adept at reading/interpreting the weekly grosses, so I’m hoping some of you who are can help me plan :)
I have two tickets to tomorrow's matinee of Frozen that I'm not going to be able to use. I've had them re-listed on ticketmaster for a couple of weeks, but they haven't sold. At this point I'm just trying to recoup SOME of the money I spent. What are my best options for unloading them this late in the game? Are people more likely to go to other sites (eg stubhub) for last-minute tickets? I'm not in NY so unfortunately I can't get to the box office. Many thanks for
