| Self-care While Self-Distancing and Broadway is Closed Mar 15

Went to a beautiful state park yesterday with a friend and our dogs. Her dog is very well trained and I feel safe letting my puppy off leash with them and we got to see my puppy swim for the first time. We had a blast and saw a few people on the trail/beach, all grateful to be out in nature. Might go back there a few times next week given that my work has shut down for the next week and possibly next two weeks!

Agreed. The fact that not everyone issued an automatic refund baffles me. They are literally just creating more work on themselves.

So far I have received an email regarding Company tickets saying that they will automatically be refunded.
I'm having an annoying time with TodayTix because they sent out a "110% voucher" of the price we paid for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, however, I ship to Army basic training on April 21st and cannot reschedule this trip for god knows how long. I have emailed them back and am waiting on a response. Also, we live in Virginia so it's not like I ca

Hahaha. I mean, I’m a lesbian. Anything can happen, trust me.

I’m confused about the whole Joanne/Larry/Bobbie thing.

In the original, would it be Joanne giving herself up to Bobby and why wouldn’t they just keep it that way? We are all adults, bisexuality and queerness exist (obviously, it’s in the show already). Or does it add more to the show t

Same. Rachel Bay Jones was absolutely incredible. The “hoarseness” of her voice did not distract a bit and I actually found that I loved it. I was close enough to see their faces and her acting is absolutely incredible. I will never get a seat far from the stage for any future production of hers, it was thrilling to watch.

Would love to know as well! I am not a “play” person, but Edward Albee has my heart. I love his writings and this is my favorite play by far. Have tickets for the end of this month!

My partner has always wanted to see this musical since she was a child, so I told her the only way I would ever see it is if she bought the tickets (she’s not a theatre-goer like me, I usually go to shoes alone or will pay for her because I am dragging her to one I think she will like).
I had no idea what I was in for. I knew “Memory”, obviously, but I am not a big fan of ALW and the running joke in my family is how we put on the Cats VCR tape and no one was awake 30 minutes in.

For me personally, ALL of it.
If I really love a show, I generally tend to find books either about the show or about the subject of the show. For example, loving the show Les Mis led me to actually reading Les Mis by Victor Hugo which led to me learning a **** ton about France and some really cool new words and an author I knew of but never actually read about.
For Hamilton, it made me research our founding fathers so actually see what was true about the Hamilton family, e

Sarah Paulson. She can do no wrong, I love her acting.
Mandy Patinkin (saw him when he toured with Patti LuPone, want to see him in a Broadway show)
Helena Bonham Carter. I would kill to see her do a play on Broadway.

I am actually a little obsessed with RBJ’s raspy voice. I couldn’t take my eyes off of her the whole time.
I did notice some lyric mishaps, but I don’t expect ANYTHING coming in to these Broadway Stages shows. I have only seen two other Broadway Center Stage productions and this is the only one that has blown me away like it did last night.

It's getting closer!! I have been debating on and off for months on whether or not I should blow some money and get a ticket, and of course at the end of the day there really is no debate.
Going next Thursday and it's all I have been thinking about! Was able to snag a single ticket in the orchestra to treat myself, I usually buy the cheap seats and did not want to miss out on RBJ as Alice.
There were still a decent amount of tickets left, more seats together than I

The show is weird, but in a good way. It’s a bit different then the shows I’ve been watching, so it’s a nice contrast for me at the moment.
I’m not going to lie though, Ben Platt spits just as much when he talks as he does when he sings and there were a few scenes where the light was shining just the right way to watch the mists of spittle.
