I hope not, for the sake of the audience! But who knows, maybe a different director can breathe more life into this piece than Dull Doyle could.
Looking for True West Hiptix Feb 21

I’m fairly certain that I transferred a HipTix seat to another HipTix user just last season. I couldn’t use my ticket to Time and The Conways, so I called Roundabout and had it transferred to my friend. Do they not do that anymore?

Going next weekend! Will report back. I very much enjoyed Zeller’s The Father when it played on Broadway a few years ago. Hope this one is just as good! Also looking forward to seeing Huppert onstage!
Broadway Grosses: Week Ending 2/17/19 Feb 20
2019, 03:55:33 PM
In my experience, when someone says that a show “broke THE house record” they’re referring to the highest gross out of any week in that house. So I think saying it that way, without expanding on which record they broke, carries the wrong implication.

Ah but don’t forget we’re talking about a HOUSE record, so it’s specific to the Lyceum. Lowering the competition even more - not just because it’s only 1 theatre, but also, as Something Peculiar mentioned, because it has a histor
It’s a very strange play, as others have said, and I think it explores complex themes in a layered and fascinating way. But I just don’t think this is a play that benefits from being as long as it is. They’ve trimmed it down but from 3 hours, luckily, but I hope they kweo going. For me, it didn’t achieve that “epic journey” quality that you hope to get in very long plays. This just seemed like a long play. The length felt especially unwelcome because I thought all
Broadway.com charges astronomical fees that should be illegal. Telecharge and Ticketmaster are the official sites of most Broadway shows, so they are about as safe as you can get, short of buying from the box office. They also charge lots of fees, but not as much as Broadway.com.
These days, it’s rare that you get to see a play that presents genuinely challenging issues for NYC liberals. Too often you see plays where the whole sociopolitical message is just “racism is bad” or “homophobia is bad” or “sexism is bad” etc. And the NYC liberals rave about these shows, calling them “powerful” and “important” for telling us things we already know and agree with.
But this play presents a point of view that’s genuinely toug
The reason I phrased it that way was to acknowledge my lack of certainty, and invite you or others to respond with the correct information if in the event that I was mistaken. That's one of the fun things about these boards, is learning news things about the industry, but I guess I'll just be happy to learn that I'm wrong and have it left at that.
I doubt you'll have any problems getting into the show. It just means someone took advantage of their access to comps in a morally questionable way. Hope you didn't pay too much!
is after anatevka canon ? Feb 13
2019, 07:18:32 PM
I mean, theatre generally doesn’t deal with the concept of “canon” in the same way other media forms do, but even if it did, I guess the answer would have to be no, since it wasn’t affiliated with the creators of the show. Or at least I doubt it is
Witness Uganda at The Wallis in LA Feb 13
2019, 07:10:26 PM
Well, it was a couple years ago that I saw it, so I don’t totally remember what happened with Joy, but I remember Jacob having a large plot significance in Act 2. I didn’t think that plot-line was particularly successful.
I’m sort of confused/curious about Emma Hunton’s role, given that the version at Second stage didn’t have any white female characters.
Speaking of female roles, this is actually where I first saw Nicolette Robinson onstage, and she killed it! Is she still in
Witness Uganda at The Wallis in LA Feb 13

I saw it at Second Stage when it was called “Invisible Thread”. I thought it was extremely flawed, but wow what a gorgeous score. I’m glad it’s getting another life, if only because there’s now a spark of hope for a cast recording!

Krystina Alabado To Replace Ashley Park In Mean Girls Feb 12
2019, 01:06:33 PM
Interesting choice! I think Alabado is vey good, but she does have very different energy. The times I’ve seen her onstage, she always has a quieter, gentler presence onstage, even when she’s belting her face off. Doesn’t mean she won’t be great, but it’ll be a different take on the role for sure. Hope she has a great run in the show!
You can probably count one hand the number of ticket sales they’ll lose each week because of this, if they lose any at all. Pretty much all of the people w
