Which shows will Covid-19 end? Mar 15
2020, 11:02:00 PM
Unfortunately this could have more of a lasting effect even once the curtain goes up again as if a bunch of shows close will anything open in the theatres for the summer months? Man this sucks for all those shows that won’t reap the benefit of some Tony noms and wins and for people like Elizabeth Stanley and Lauren Patten who were generating Tony buzz but now could miss the chance to be rewarded for their work
Self-care While Self-Distancing and Broadway is Closed Mar 15
2020, 07:44:50 PM
Wow this week has been rough. I’m finally coming to terms with the fact that my spring trip is likely not going to happen and oh what a lineup of 9 shows I had. Seeing as I’m a first responder I still have to go to work and also can’t reschedule vacation time that is booked in December for the following year. I guess it means I will have to plan an epic trip next year and eat the $400 flights as I won’t be likely able to use the credit before it expires in September.
Broadway to Close? Mar 12
2020, 12:12:55 AM
If the do close for a bit I wonder what effect it will have on the Tony awards. If shows have to push back previews and then openings it will mean that some may open after the cut off making them ineligible for this season?

Fair enough. I guess my friends from college are in a minority as is my sis in law as they have been told if they are quarantined at home for 2 weeks it will be unpaid

Thanks HGR2. I live in Canada, and was planning a trip to NYC end of April/early May (conference). I learned today that due to a var

They can't go (insert time length of show) without using their phone, or "getting audio". Absolutely no respect. They're seeing an A-list cast! They should just be living in the moment without that."
I find this statement hilarious, considering it’s never a “young person” checkingtheir phone during

What do you Recommend? Mar 2

Curious as to peoples thoughts on this. When I have friends who are visiting in NYC they often ask me what show I would recommend they see. To me that question is like asking how long is a piece of string- there is no one correct answer. My current go to is TKAM as I think that was one of the best pieces of live theatre Ive ever seen although I dont know how the current cast stacks up. For musicals I tend to recommend CFA. Being Canadian its a story people know here and at around 100 minutes its
Dear Evan Hansen Touring - Chicago thoughts Mar 2
2020, 10:49:37 AM
Saw the closing performance in Vancouver last night. The Evan alternate was on and I thought he got better as the show went on. I’ve been spoiled having seen this off broadway and with the OBC but the cast was strong. I agree with people who said the actor playing Jared seems a bit too old. I know that the actors playing Jared have been in their 20s but I found it hard to believe he was a high schooler. I thought that the whole cast really ramped it up from Good For You onward. From my seat in r
SIX - Preview Thread Feb 25

On the Six Instagram live tonight it was explained that Megasix is not allowed to be filmed as per actors equity. Apparently the creatives wanted it but the union is the one that kiboshed it.

And wasn't it yesterday's Sunday show that went to TKTS? I guess NYC theatregoers aren't used to Sunday evenings and the tourists are getting out of town?"
I just grabbed a ticket for May 3 in the evening. Got my ticket through audience rewards vip. Row k center orchestra for 6500 points and $

Taking my sis in law as she is a big Alanis fan. Looking to get in on the discount tickets. Our choices are row q on the left in the orchestra or row f centre mezz. Curious for input from those who have seen it.
I know it's early but to those who have seen it, would it be better from the 2nd last row of the orchestra or row E in the rear mezz (first row of the rear mezz). Both seats are $99.

This show really intrigues me, especially with the cast announced. I know nobody knows anything about any of the songs etc... but stuggling to decide if I pull the trigger. Unfortunately there is no evening performance May 3 so if I see this I may have to replace one of the other shows I’m considering (likely The minutes or Virginia Woolf). I wonder if/when they will do a press event so we can get a sense of the songs.
