They're not bumping a cast member, Ingrid Michaelson is filling in while Brittain Ashford is away from Great Comet, which had been announced awhile ago.

CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY Reviews  Apr 25 2017, 06:06:46 PM

It seems as though they are doing this for all all of their pull quotes. Another one they use on their website says "The Oompa-Loompas are real showstopping attractions!"-Entertainment Weekly, when the real quote from EW was "the only other real showstopping attraction is the Oompa Loompas"

They also are using an NPR quote that I have been unable to find. The quote is "A marvelous show for everyone! YOU'RE GUARANTEED TO HAVE A BALL!" - NPR

Great Comet Rush  Jan 14 2017, 02:37:18 AM

I did rush for the Friday night show! My friend and I got in line around 6:40 and were the second and third people in line. Next set of people showed up around 7, and it was a steady flow of people queuing up after that. When I got coffee around 8, the line was already over 15 people. Our rush seats were E 18 and 20 in the orchestra, which were wonderful! Super close to all the action, and didn't feel like we missed anything except a few moments on the staircases/in the mezz.

Watching the Tonys in Times Square/other options  Jun 5 2016, 12:14:10 PM

Oh no! I was really looking forward to this, it was a good time last year. The Tonys seem not to be doing as much promotion this year as they have the past few years, the pop-up shop was also gotten rid of this year. Has anyone heard if they're doing a ticket lottery for this year?

Favorite Song From The 2015-2016 Season  Apr 18 2016, 03:12:10 PM

Satisfied, The Schuyler Sisters, and Wait For It from Hamilton. From the Non-Hamilton shows, She Used to Be Mine from Waitress and Beautiful from Invisible Thread. Also a special mention to Touch Me from Deaf West Spring Awakening and I'm Here from The Color Purple. Although they're not new to this season, the revivals both elevated those songs to new heights. 



TUCK EVERLASTING Previews  Apr 13 2016, 02:24:24 PM

I also saw the show last night, and I really loved it. I cried for most of the ballet at the end, as did many of the people around me. My biggest criticism was that I still found the dance/ general ensemble overpowering at times, especially during things like Top of The World and Good Girl Winnie Foster. At times the dancing was loud enough to make it hard to hear the lyrics of the songs, which was a bit frustrating. I think they need to trust in the power of their beautiful set and tale

Color Purple Rush?  Mar 18 2016, 11:52:04 AM

I did rush last weekend for the Saturday show. Got to the rush line by 8, and would guess at least 20-25 people ahead of us. When we got to the box office window they told us they were sold out for the evening, but we were able to get rush for the matinee! It helps to be flexible with your show time, if you're rushing on a double show day. 



SHUFFLE ALONG Previews (Prices)  Feb 4 2016, 10:36:10 AM

I'm SO EXCITED for this show. I got to attend a preview event that was held where George C. Wolfe and Savion Glover talked about the show, and Billy Porter, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Brandon Victor Dixon, Joshua Henry, and Adrienne Warren performed, along with a bunch of the dance ensemble. All three of the performances were incredible, especially a new number that is staged as a tap battle

Sorry double post! 



Invisible Thread Second Stage  Dec 2 2015, 08:10:05 PM

Was able to see this show on Sunday and was simply blown away. For me this ranked up with shows like Fun Home, and Spring Awakening Deaf West, for being able to combine education and reality into a beautiful show. The music was super catchy and the choreography was simply sublime. I cried a few times in both acts, especially at the end. I was able to see Griffin and I'm glad, because I think he brings so much heart to the show and really grounds it in being his story. The show has some st

Spring Awakening student tickets Help  Oct 5 2015, 12:05:51 AM

It was really disappointing to find out, especially since I was prepared to pay the $60. But asking people to pay double what a lotto ticket is really defeats the point of "lottery loser" tickets. Might as well just tell people to go into box office and pay full price. Also for people who are curious, it was $75 today at TKTS. This is unrelated, but I'm surprised at how few tickets they've been putting into lottery. They always seem to have around 21-24, which seems pretty s

The price has been bumped up, I was there today and that was the loser lotto price. I think it changed after opening.
