Whatever happens Sunday, I'd be willing to bet good money Sydney will be playing Mary in the upcoming Secret Garden concert next Winter.

Regarding discounts, they were running a special via Facebook last week for $35 rear Mezzanine tickets through April 21. There were quite a few seats left, particularly the further out you went. Thankfully I bought mine yesterday for the 17th. Not sure it would have been so easy if I had waited until the word of mouth had spread a little. Sounds like this is a real gem.
I adored DROWSY more than I can say, so these pre-previews-reviews are exciting.

Regarding the audition, AEA rules stipulate that any production contract (i.e. Broadway) must hold open auditions every 6 months regardless of whether or not there is a need to fill spots in the production.

Also near Gentleman's Guide is Mont Blanc (Formerly Luxia). Sit at the bar for cheap drinks and some good European food. Not touristy at all, and has a great old NY vibe.

I thought I had seen something here about CL, but couldn't find it. Opps, sorry folks.
"I'm interested in hiring someone to go to a show of a terrible composer and simply yell things like "flat" or "spoken like a true douche" or something along those lines for as long as possible during the show. This gig offers $50 basically to go and be promptly asked to leave after leaving your mark. Please respond to email."
For what it is worth: a friend of mine (who I can assure you knows his Sondheim) saw it back in February. Upon his return his exact words were, "They got it."

And yet all of this sounds far more complicated then it need be. There are a gazillion apps and websites out there were adding a photo is a simple as copy/paste. (Granted, I'm not the best with computers and HTML and all that crap, so what the hell do I know?)
For Those Who've Seen MATILDA... Apr 13

As far as seats are concerned, I was siting in the last row of the Balcony, and I saw everything fine. In fact, I would recommend balcony seats (Although, maybe try to be in the first couple of rows, because I did miss a couple things with entrances and exits from the house.)
As far as contracts, well, I'd imagine a year for the Brits, but it's anyone's guess, really.
Okay, never added random lines, but I will happily say that I've played a round or two of pass the button, and at acclaimed regional theatres. Not saying that to toot my own horn, just saying even the pros get a bit restless after a few weeks of a run and like to spice up a chorus scene, 'cause why not. (Playing the game is not un-professional, screwing up your show is...it's a fine line)
Also, not all shows lend themselves to playing gam

To answer another question the OP asked, back in (I want to say it was) 2005, all 4 Best Musical Nominees were running a year later: Spamalot, Light in the Piazza, Spelling Bee, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Not sure if all recouped, but a healthy run like that is saying something.
