To Kill a Mockingbird and Betrayal are both wonderful! Don't miss! The Sound Inside I liked very much and, unlike others, enjoyed The Rose Tattoo, having the original film as context. Oklahoma is dark and wonderful!
Bolt is usually the least expensive option and will deposit you at 36St & 11 Av. A five minute walk and a few bucks puts you on the #7 subway, one stop to Times Square. As noted, Bolt wi-Fi isn't premium but you can sometimes (often) snag a $1 ticket which is nice. On weekends, there are also runs to 39St & 1st Av. Walk 4 blocks to 42nd St. and hop on the crosstown bus. Not as efficient but still an option. At Port Authority, in addition to the loathsome Greyhound, is Peter P

I thought Zellweger portrayed her exactly right---including her singing. She was a broken woman at that point in her life. Her vocal virtuosity was also gone.It all rang true, despite the film's overall lackluster appeal.

Had a very different experience than previous attendee-posters. The phones and tablets were out in full force, despite the pre-show admonition, and the ushers did nothing to stop it. Given the concert vibe, people dancing in their seats, leaving mid-song, etc., the technology wasn't that distracting. I grew up with the Talking Heads, so for me it was an enjoyable, if predictable, reminisce. But there's nothing remotely theatrical, or special, about this. The band is tight, the dancer

Curious to see it, but will bide my time with lottery or rush seats. It's interesting that, given the mediocre reviews, tickets are hard to find until the end of the run.

This was quite good! There was a cast replacement still on book,(he’s going to be wonderful!), and part of the storyline seems a tiny bit contrived, but all in all pretty solid. It’s up on TDF again and I hope it has a successful run. That Javier Munoz is a handsome dreamboat!

I haven't heard anything. But I did see the play. It's enjoyable enough. I can't imagine it making a serious run on Broadway. It could do well at Signature, the Public... Even before that it needs some work. The second act is long and meandering. Analisa Velez and John Scurti are both terrific!

Last night's performance saw about 35-40 of us waiting for the concierge until about 745. He apologized, explaining that had "a lot of late orders". Nothing alphabetized made it more frustrating. Finally, a level head in the crowd said just call out the names in the order of envelopes in your hand. Thank God!
I sat front mezzanine center, having purchased right at 10am.

It's not wonderful. But it's not the worst musical I've seen. There's just not much to it. The score is, to a song, forgettable. The storyline is very, very thin, unfunny and dated.
