Getting it off my chest  May 20 2020, 09:52:09 PM

I totally agree with you.

Going to NYC and seeing a couple of shows every month was my "treat".   It was the number thing that brought me joy.   

I miss it!

I have other things to worry about---health (mine and loved ones), employment, relationships....

But theater kept me sane.  

We will get through this....



Alternatives to the Broadway Flea Market  May 15 2020, 06:21:38 PM

I love the Flea and had to miss last  year.    

I have noticed that BCEFA have not had any items for sale on EBay.  They usually have a half dozen items for sale (autographed posters, playbills, etc) at all times.    I wonder if their entire staff have been furloughed?

The closure hit about the time that the spring bucket drive was starting.   I was hoping that some of the shows would donate their items to be sold online.



Emptiest/Smallest Audiences at Broadway shows?  Apr 29 2020, 04:52:54 PM

I saw Gary the Sequel..  close to the end of the run.   I had bought a cheap ticket and they moved us all up front.  I would say about 50% full.

Harvey Fierstein My darling Larry - Let us, please, not start attacking one another. Jordan knows, Richie knows. I dare say that Steve Roth knows. Trump couldn't care less if Steve attacked him. At this point he doesn't need a real estatemdeveloper like Steve Roth. He has plenty of mone


How is everyone doing?  Mar 27 2020, 07:20:12 PM

I am in Oklahoma, work as a consultant.   I usually travel each week to another state and we are grounded until further notice.   I live alone and I am lonely.  I miss the energy of people!   People on the plane, in the airport, at work, just people!    Looking forward to seeing live theater again!!   

Best wishes to all of you!

Stay safe!

We will perform and we will watch other perform again!!!

Which shows will Covid-19 end?  Mar 16 2020, 02:02:45 PM

As a die hard theater fan, my daughter and I will be back to see shows ASAP.   But what about the tourists?  Are people going to go on vacations and trips?   The tourist dollars are a big chunk of the ticket sales for the shows.

Commercial theatre is an industry run on capitalism. If you do not like that, then you should stop attending Broadway
