I'll jump in and say that I was just as blown away as the previous poster. It's a truly incredible evening. I put it on the same level with Ferryman. It's another one of the tightest ensemble casts I've ever seen. Daniels turns in an almost perfect performance, never once making me think about Gregory Peck. He captures Atticus' optimism in a way I'd never noticed was there. in my mind he's currently the tony front runner, and we could see any combination
I keep hearing from industry friends that despite all the efforts to put the show into a proscenium, Hadestown is still trying to book circle for the spring, however OOTI producers (meaning Ken) are holding on for dear life. It does make sense as Hadestown is still planning to come in this spring even though there are very few available theaters .
Adding myself to the list of people completely blown away. Before today I wasn't sure it could live up to the hype. It's a really good play that Sam Mendes delivers to utter perfection. In a lesser directors hands they would not have been able to play with all of the many tones and shades of the story and all the colorful characters with such amazing clarity.
A perfect cast, especially the previously listed Considine, Donnelley (who could possibly end up on stage at radio c
It's so early we can't rule out what else is going to come in. Especially with the incredibly likely transfers of "Hadestown" and "Girl From the North Country." The all of a sudden we throw into the mix Patrick Page (another long overdue vet) and Stephen Bogardus (taking over the role Ciaran Hinds was nominated for an Olivier for) respectively.
I was there tonight as well. I'd consider it a train wreck of a piece of writing givn a first rate production. A real exercise in sh*t polishing. The design is spectacular, the staging is top notch, performances good (particularly the main girl and the guy who played the Worhol character), the score is interesting (maybe not top shelf Trask, but worth a second listen), but man what a disaster of a book and story. The characters never get past bland cliches, the moments carry little t

When I checked this morning they were cheaper tickets available, they're just selling really fast I know the website crashed a couple of times due to traffic.

I googled it. Not only that. But there are 2 indentical sets. One moving up and down and one sliding in and out. Though the kitchen change they said is done with crew in night vision goggles grinding actors and furniture because it's in pitch black.
Ok, how do they do the set changes? I've been trying to figure it out for a week since I saw it and I'm stuck. This is honestly the first time I've ever seen a show and not been able to figure the technical side out at all. Especially with the floor. Someone else has to have figured it out. Please anyone! I'm dying here.
With it being such a light year for new musicals and no clear front runner in the choreography category, could this be the year we finally see Steven Hoggett take home a tony for Cursed Child which would be long overdue? Just the sheer volume of choreography that's in that piece over five and a half hours I think puts it on par with some of his best work.
Thats funny. I found the telephone booth to be the most obvious. That, the dementors and the fight with Malfoy were the few moments where I found fault in the otherwise brilliant production.

I recognized him from his RSC work, but this is the first time I've seen him live in New York. So I guess I thought this was his first major New York role.
Completely Agree! I found act 1 more engaging than Act 2 (it's just more tightly structured), but Act 2 had me by the end. Michael Grief's work on this and the production design is somewhat mind blowing especially when you consider what they're up against in that space. And the actor that plays John Blanke (not sure how it's spelled) is giving a breakout performance.
I was already excited as a big Bruce Norris fan but this blew my expectations. The scene that invol
