That tour schedule is brutal. 95% one-nighters. I'm assuming this is a low tier non-equity tour. Some weeks they're only playing three cities/performances. I'm sure the cast will be grateful once they get to Lauderhill, FL in December for a three week run at the dinner theater.
An interesting thing I noticed yesterday when walking past the theater. Lana's name was still on the cast board in the lobby. Maybe AFW isn't starting until mid-week? Thursday?

During previews, the theater's box office is usually closed on Sundays unless there's a performance on Sundays. 10am-8pm weekdays is typical once they start previews, even if they're dark.

It does seem to have a solid advance. No discounts available, either. Have they announced a rush/lotto yet?
I can't imagine Torns would leave the show now. She's an OBC and I just can't imagine she'd up and leave 3 months before the show closes. I'd take it that this was her last scheduled performance as Jenna.
I feel this should be a limited run. 6 months until September? Tickets sales are through Sept. 27 only now. If it's a hit, extend it through to the end of the year.

So despite losing the online lotto this past Saturday, I was able to walk up to the box office at 5pm and get a rush ticket ($42). The couple in front of me also got rush tickets and the older couple waiting in the lobby then inquired about them after I bought. Rush tickets were in the front side orchestra, rows B & C. So there doesn't seem to be a need to arrive early, you can probably arrive when the box office opens at 10am.
CPannullo said: "It was announced that Jordan extended her stint as Jenna until November 24.Could Jordin extending until November 24mean that Sara will return after with a week or two of Stephanie Towns playing Jennain between?"
I think these leaves the last 6 weeks as a possibility that Sara returns. If not maybe Jessie comes back to close the show? If anything else, we'll get Torns, which would be a delight to have her close the show.
So per a friend who saw LIGHTNING THIEF tonight, anyone with a seat in the mezzanine or balcony was asked to move to the orchestra. And the orchestra was only ~50% full tonight. This show has flop written all over it.
Was at The Lightning Thief on Saturday night. Seemed like they gave rush tickets to anyone that asked at the box office($42). Orchestra section looked about 75% full. I looked up at the mezzanine during intermission and the sides seemed empty. On a Saturday night. There just isn't a large enough audience for this show that has done very little advertising. Can't imagine them changing their schedule next month will help sales(they're eliminating Mon/Tue evenings and addin
