| 'GIANT' first preview Oct 29
2012, 05:41:29 PM|
Saw it yesterday afternoon via rush (actually rushed Saturday night, but idiotically didn't check the ticket and showed up late, but they kindly allowed me to past-date the ticket). For future reference, all showtimes for Giant seem to be at 1pm for matinees and 7pm for evenings.
RippedMan, definitely give rush a try, especially as it's early in the run. Check the Public's twitter account, as they usually give daily updates as to rush availability.
Anyhow, I really enjoyed it.

Hey everyone, I just walked down the line and polled informally and got these stats:
6:30am: water fountain, first big tree w/mulch clearing underneath (this is the spot I aim for, and have never been turned away at this point)
7am: set of benches under complete tree cover, on the slope, before the line switches to the west side of the path
9:15am: rock of no hope
As of 11:50 the end of the line was about 50 yds south of the 86th street transverse.

I saw it on Tuesday, walked up at about 6:50 for a 7pm curtain and got a seat (orch row E, house left).

She didn't ditch The Wedding Singer prematurely, although I believe she missed quite a few performances at the beginning of the run.

The stand-by line, especially early in the run, is your friend. Head straight to the park after work and sit and wait. Go to the stand-by line on a day that was rainy in the morning, but clears up mid-afternoon. Go to the standby line when it might rain. Go on a weekday.
In general, whatever you do, don't wait until the end of the run. If you can, see it within the first week. If you wait in line in the morning, get there no later than 7. But don't wait. Go see it as soon as you can. I

Got there at about 10:45 (for a noon box office opening) this morning and the tickets ran out a few people ahead of me. They give away 20 tickets per show.

Great news! Congrats to all involved.
It seems that the remainder of the run at the Friedman is sold out, so I look forward to catching this one again at the Lyceum. :)

Gah, I saw it last night and absolutely loved it. Really strong performances by Nina Arianda and Hugh Dancy; I saw the former in "Born Yesterday" last season, but she really shines here. The tension escalated for nearly two hours and never broke. The only way I could've enjoyed myself more is if the gentleman in the row behind me who was vocalizing with every exhale would've stopped moan-breathing. *sigh*

I tried rush in the evening twice last week and came up empty-handed. However, rush on Saturday morning wasn't so bad. I arrived just after 8am and was, probably, 5th in line, and it was a slow but steady line growth until 10am. However, I don't know if this was an anomaly due to the sudden change of the seasons (read: cold weather).

I bought the CD shortly after seeing both Toni and Eartha perform on Rosie (as I was 13 and not living in the city, and wouldn't have been able to see it if I tried), and this has been on my short list of favorite songs ever since. It really is just stunning- I'm glad to see there's a lot of love for it.
I remember in high school I sang "Lowdown-Down" for a competition and a classmate sang "Life of the Party" from Lippa's- no one in my class had heard of the LaChiusa version. So disappo

I stopped by some evening last week and the very amiable man at the box office let me know that generally, as of late, rush tickets sell out within the first hour of opening on one-show days, and within two hours on two-show days. It obviously couldn't hurt to get there early, but consider those bounds when you are planning to rush.
