I am so glad someone said "Goodbye" from Catch Me If You Can here! I feel exactly the same way - IMO, it is truly an unforgettable moment to see this number performed live in the show.
I also think that "It All Fades Away" from the Bridges of Madison County is an amazing 11 O'clock number. I still remember seeing it in the theater and hearing the audience react to it! It was magical.
Had a great time (as usual) at the flea market yesterday. I did not get there until about 3:45 PM, but I like the end of the day deals so it worked out. Now that I've had some time to sort out the goodies I got, here is a list:
- So many T-shirts and some hoodies (Nice Work if You Can Get It, Frozen, Hello Dolly, Amelie, Misery, War Paint, etc.): They had some of those stuff a bag for $10 deals, so I was able to get all these for $25.
Valentina3 and n2nbaby, thanks so much for the information! How would I be able to check if there are any Linctix left for the other dates? Since I cannot buy another Linctix at the moment, I cannot go in online to see if they have any tickets left (and I need 3 since 2 of my friends are going with me). I am afraid that once I give up these tickets I will find out that Linctix for all other dates are sold out. As much as I'd love to see Laura/Lauren, I would not ri
I have no doubt that Laura Benanti will be great in this role, and very disappointed that I won't be able to catch her performance or Lauren Ambrose's. I had specifically booked my Linctix ticket for 11/17 before this announcement, so that I can avoid the cast's vacation schedules and see Lauren Ambrose, Norbert Leo Butz, and Harry Hadden-Patton in their roles. And then this announcement happened - I was so excited and could not believe my luck because I am a big fan o
Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone knows if the cast would come out the stage door to sign between shows? I am looking to see the show on a Saturday and was wondering if anyone would sign after the matinee. Thanks in advance for any info!
Completely agree on the Robert Cuccioli comment! It is still very difficult to understand how the voters decided that one. In my opinion, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is one of the most demanding roles in theater, and Cuccioli was simply impeccable and absolutely deserved the Tony. And I may be in the minority for this one, but I somehow always thought of Billy Flynn as more of a featured role in Chicago, not a leading role.
Won lottery for both parts on a Saturday, and seat was in mid-mezzanine, row M, seat 114. A pretty good seat actually. Of course I would have loved a close up orchestra seat, especially for this play, so I can see the facial expressions better, but my seat was right in the center, so I had a perfect view of the stage. The performances were very moving and compelling, I am so glad to have been able to see this!
I stopped listening to cast recordings before seeing a show after I did that for Book of Mormon. Knowing the lyrics really took so much away from that show. I like to be surprised (pleasantly I hope) now. I actually have really good restraint - have managed not to listen to Dear Even Hansen or Hamilton since I have yet to see these shows. However, I would watch some promo videos to decide if I would be interested in a particular show. Since the promos are us
Smidge, thank you, I forgot about that one! And yes, I completely agree with you, while I enjoyed the Les Miz medley, I really thought (and hoped) that he would do another encore on a more serious note. It would've probably been a good idea to switch the placement of the Les Miz medley with another song in the set list. Overall though, the concert was gorgeous.
I was there tonight (I got a rush ticket through TodayTix, I couldn't believe it when I got through!). I really loved the concert - thought it was absolutely marvelous! This reminded me a lot of his show at 54 below years ago, I just cannot decide which one I loved more (I love these venues that feel a bit more personal). He did not do any covers of pop songs tonight, and the show definitely felt very classy and suit the venue very well. The venue is beautiful and
Instead of creating a new message thread, I found this one from back in 2010.
I am from NY, and the other day, about a week or two ago, I could have sworn that I heard Dear Evan Hansen's "For Forever" on the radio. It definitely did not seem like an advertisement for the show, because the song started from the beginning, and went on for about 15-30 seconds without interruption. However, I was on one of those FM radio station from Connecticut or something, so t
I sat in the rear mezzanine area (forgot exactly which row, but definitely in the last 4-5 rows) for On the 20th Century, and the view was not bad at all. You will probably not be able to see facial expressions of the performers perfectly, unless you have super vision, but it is still a great view which allows you to take in the whole set. It's not a huge theater so I think the last few rows will be fine. I also thought the seats were pretty nice and comfortable there.
I am so happy that Elsie Fest is happening again this year! Went to both previous ones and had so much fun. Glad to see Corey Cott returning (if the current unconfirmed lineup is correct), he was amazing last year and is currently giving an extremely moving performance in Bandstand. And yes, Audra and Alan would be so awesome! Looking forward to the confirmed lineup (even though I think regardless of the lineup, it is always nice to have an event where broadway music i
I live in Queens, and even for me, 2 hours prior to show time is definitely not enough notice. Depending on what I am doing at the time of notice, I may have to do different things to get ready to head into Manhattan, and NYC transit, especially on weekends, may not be very efficient. I think the 2 hour notice would probably only benefit people who live in Manhattan or very close to a subway station. I find that at least 4 hours of notice is best. Putting down credit c
Wow, $6,000 is impressive! When I saw the show two Sundays ago, they had auctioned off Glenn's purple gloves that she wore during the show (which she autographed on the spot), and threw in a picture with her and her dog backstage, and that went for $2,200. The auction process was very entertaining to watch.
I am so glad many here have mentioned Michael Xavier's performance, because when I saw it, I also thought he was definitely one of the highlights of the show!&nb
