Picture it, Summer, 2009. West Side Story was at the Palace. I was working in ticket sales.
Ticket Buyer: Is Liza Minnelli still playing in West Side Story?
Me: Um.....no. I don't believe she's ever been in that show, at least on Broadway.
TB: No, no, she was in West Side Story. I read it in the Times
Me: Well, maybe at one point she was in a past production, but can assure you she's not in

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.

As a self-identified fan of this musical, I thought the movie did a great job. While I find the full musical more effective, I fully recommend this adaptation.

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 don't post here often much anymore, and I swear, this is not me.
The question remains, whodunnit?
"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."

How large is the group?
If Thai suits your fancy, Qi on 8th between 42nd and 43rd is fantastic.

I just got my ticket today at the Zigfield. All other theaters were sold out and the lady at the box office told me there were only 40 seats left.
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?)

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.

HOW DARE YOU PLAY A GAME ON STAGE!!
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.
