Recent CYRANO musical to be adapted for the screen  Aug 5 2020, 12:58:05 PM

No one should be made to suffer through this, especially Dinklage's singing. To call it singing is being very generous.

"I'm disappointed that Jasmine Cephas-Jones won't reprise her role." Don't be because I was really excited to see her in this and she was not good. Whether that was her performance or the horrendous music I can't say.

Never been a fan of Brown's choreography, except maybe The Fortress of Solitude. Really liked this at The Public and I think the only issue with the direction was that it was played in the round but not directed that way. I'm guessing they'll use a smaller Broadway house and put seating on the stage. Jordan is right though, this is going to be a hard sell and will need some big names in a few of the roles (other than Sasha Allen of CAMP fame).

No. That's probably just so you have time to make sure everything is working properly rather than logging in on the dot have not being able to troubleshoot.

How much will you be willing to spend on theatre post closure  Jun 29 2020, 03:57:48 PM

Even though the purchasing process for this was a nightmare, I'm still very much excited to finally be able to see it.

On a related note, I watched The Last Five Years from The Other Palace over the week and really loved it. Neither performance was perfect but it showed the capabilities of the medium and worked perfectly for a socially distant show. I'm honestly shocked US theatre companies aren't "producing" this since it's only two people who are barely on s

MUSIC MAN Seems To Have Been Rescheduled For April 2021  Jun 23 2020, 06:00:07 PM

Just checked my Telecharge account and am rescheduled for 5/21/2021. It is what it is, I guess. Thanks for the heads up, Jordan.

(Also, you can slip a straw under a mask and drink. I've done it. It's not that hard.)

It's also not a bracelet either, like some people seem to think it is.

Honestly this is the result of someone who has spent too much time cooped up during quarantine and finding a way to craft the current political landscape as justification for something happening to him completely unrela

Only took 5.5 hours but I finally got my ticket. Only 40GBP and up tickets left. I was 4856 in the queue so if you're much above that good luck.

Old Vic production of LUNGS (on Zoom)  Jun 10 2020, 11:45:39 AM

Looks like the 20GBP tickets are sold out too. Going on hour 5 so supes fun! Hopefully the 30GBP ones are left by the time I get in. Don't mind seeing it on July 4 because what else are we doing.

Been on since 7am and it's still telling me more than an hour. F*cking ridiculous to wait at least FOUR hours for this.

Old Vic production of LUNGS (on Zoom)  Jun 10 2020, 09:00:51 AM

Old Vic tweeted that the 10GBP tickets are sold out but they're still available at other price bands. I'm not even halfway across the bar yet.

I'm in the same boat as you. I did just notice that on the website it says "Your queue number won't change, but as long as the person in the pink bar is moving you're on your way." My guy is slowing walking across so we'

Is anyone having luck with this? I tried at 7am on the dot but am over 4500 in the queue. My position hasn't changed in the last 15 minutes which I find improbable.

Seems pretty obvious.
It’s because they can can can!

You should do whatever you can to avoid seeing this. I would recommend scheduling a major surgery instead. That would be less painful.

That’s a glowing recommendation if I’ve ever seen one.

If that’s what you took away from the play then you clearly didn’t understand it. While the play is about conservatives it’s hardly characterized as “pro-Trump.” I think the reason pe

It doesn’t start until October 25 so what do you want from people who couldn’t have ever seen it?
