I think it's absolutely absurd that people think they should have been like, "hey, this is from Be More Chill." I think that many of the viewers had probably no idea where it came from, but that's on the producers/ writers of the telecast for choosing such unknown source material.
Last year, they did a parody of "Chandelier" by Sia. At no point in the song did they mention Sia. That's how parodies work.
I won the lottery for yesterday's performance. I had originally received an email saying I lost, but at 4:15 I was told I had until 5 to claim tickets as the first person on the loser list. Unfortunately, our seats were split up (house left box, third row left mezzanine). Seats were actually great - but kind of annoying that they were split up (though I know it happens).
It could also be that this is the Wednesday matinee of a popular week off from school so many shows are already sold out / close to selling out. Historically, shows sell VERY well that performance as parents bring their kids in to see a show.
Growing up, I always saw a Wednesday matinee performance that week with my family - we would also swing by TKTS at 1:30 PM to see it say "NO MORE AVAILABLE TICKETS."
Newark will probably be the most consistent in terms of timing. The AirTrain and NJ transit train will take about an hour combined. Sometimes NJ Transit trains are delayed, but once you're on its about 30 minutes into Penn Station.
LGA is more of a crapshoot - the bus to Jackson Heights could sit in traffic and then the E could run local. It may be faster, but more unpredictable. Plus, the Newark flight gets in earlier.
Saw this last night and could not believe this show was on broadway. It was really that bad. I went with my family (we see a show on 12/22 or 23 every year) and my dad said, "Guess we still need to see our annual Broadway show, because that was not Broadway." If I didn't know better, I'd think they want the audience to walk with the message that Cher has borderline personality disorder. The 3 Cher idea did not work at all. As good as everyone was, that script was laugha
You will definitely not have enough time. It can take 30 minutes or more to deplane and exit JFK's massive terminals. The fastest way to get in would be AirTrain + LIRR, and even that is around an hour if the schedules line up.
I did the rush this past Wednesday. I arrived at 6:15 AM and the line was pretty substantial. I was 10th in line, and almost didn't stay assuming if there were 20 or less seats, I'd be out of luck. The next people didn't show up until 7:00 AM and the line by 10:00 AM was very long with at least 75 people in it. At 8:45 AM, they came out and told us they had "Around 19 seats." With a little math, I figured I was right at the cut off point. Since I had been there for almos
Auggie27 said: "I thought "Let it Go," moved to a place which makes no craft sense, would at least pull a "Dreamgirls," and cut back to Anna's story for an act tag. It's a number that occurs 20 minutes into the film for a reason, it's a plot point, not a rumination, and the song made storytelling sense. Saving it because it's a hit must create a vacuum around Elsa. (Anna finding Elsa in the ice castle feels about right, the stakes are in the sister
I entered the 1984 and Fun Home lottery for the entirety of their runs and never won. Same with with Sweeney for about a year and finally bit the bullet and just bought tickets. I met someone who works for the app that told me that they can basically select who the winners are. She asked for my email and said to just let her know when I wanted to go. Never took her up on the offer but I always found it to be super shady.
In other news, the Aladdin lottery only gives out 4 tickets. I fi

"Deeply Furious" may go down as one of the worst (yet, best) things I've ever seen on stage. Girls jumping around with additional legs with heels yelling "I'm clickin my frickin heels." I can still picture it in my head so clearly years later.
