So, I saw the show again last night. Three in NY (Munoz/Dixon, Luwoye/Breaker, McFerrin/Breaker), Atlanta with Angelica tour (Scott/ Christopher), and finally, last night, in Dallas with the Philip tour. Most of the cast was intact except for Eliza and Hamilton (Sunday night, natch). Walker was excellent as Burr but I have to say that standby Pierre Jean Gonzalez was absolutely tremendous as Hamilton. Ten times better than McFerrin was, for my money. Right on time with all the spoken and
I actually burst into tears at "Seasons of Love" (during the show, not as much for the ending)....not because it was so great or so awful but because my oldest friend's 21 yr old daughter basically dropped dead two weeks ago....she was about to graduate a year early as a music theater major and the church choir sang that "Seasons of Love" at her funeral (as well as the Marc Shaiman arrangement of "Hail Holy Queen" from "Sister Act" wh
I take it you bought this ticket n the secondary market, given the price you apparently paid? Face value should be more like half of that, for that seat. The last time I went, I had row T on the inside (center) aisle and it was $229 plus fee, totaling around $240-$250 (bought from Ticketmaster on the day they were released).
I went last week. Unless they are adding stuff into the main exhibition spaces, a half hour is enough. As of June 25th, it was posters, set design artwork, photos, one video screen, and explanatory panels along the side walls downstairs near the circulation desk (including around the back corner) and a bit more on the second floor. At that time, anyway, the main spaces were closed for the teardown of the Bernstein exhibit. The R & H a small exhibit.
I recently saw this one-woman show downtown at the Flea, and it is only playing through this weekend (8 July). Highly recommended.....funny, bizarre, tasteless, moving, endearing...a little bit of everything. Lisa Hodsoll is great and originated themrole in DC. Plus, fresh-baked cookies! I live in Dallas and wish someone would do it or bring it here so all my theater fan friends could see it. We are a blue city and a blue county in a sea of red, but pretty much everyo
I know OP has already spent those days, but for anyone else there this summer:
Heavenly Bodies exhibit at the Met 5th AND Met Cloisters is to die for. It is basically in three parts. The Vatican items are downstairs in the Costume Institute rooms. In the Byzantine and Medieval galleries on the main floor you will find about 60-65% of the modern clothes, with the other 30-35% being at the Cloisters. Fort Tryon Park looks beautiful right now so it is worth the stroll from the 190th St. s

It doesn't seem like you do."
The tickets are taking a little longer to sell out with each NY release....so I am not sure it's provable that the demand has actually increased over that time. I would say that the longer availability indicates a slight slackening of demand, even if the end result is still a sellout. In addition, the overall supply si
I get that it's all about supply and demand. I'll even bend a little for inflation accounting for a small rise in prices over a period of a couple of years. But the front row mezz tickets I had for Hamilton in March 2017 for $199 are now priced at $350 face value. It really is just pure greed after a certain point. Producers know they're going to sell out the house for this show every night for the foreseeable future...and apparently they determined an adequate, profit-making pric
Took me a little longer than usual but I did end up getting a nice pair in front mezz row A for a client. I wanted to get a small block of seats (the six more I could have bought) for me and some friends as well, but could not find anything worth having for any of the dates we could attend. I can't complain too much; I have been successful every time I have tried and will see it for the third time next month. Now if they would only get some new Schuyler sisters...
I've gotten tickets three times on Ticketmaster releases, and two of those times I was using an iPad mini with TM app. I wouldn't get too hung up on any particular seats, though. The best thing to do is to be VERY flexible, pick some random stretch of time you could go, say the month of April, and try for weeknight tickets rather than weekend shows. And don't take too long saying yes to seats when they are offered to you. I would also consider opening up a seating map in a separat
Hubby and I are going to see Hamilton again on June 26 and a friend from upstate wants to join us. His budget is adequate to the task, but it's not as easy to find an unobstructed single seat as it is to find a pair (and people don't want to split them up, understandably). I just figured I would post here on the tiny chance that someone with an extra ticket on the 26th will see it. I realize I may be jumping the gun....

One key obvious moment was at the beginning when John Legend/Jesus enters the stage during Heaven on My Mind and strolls over to the mosh pit, shaking hands with screaming delighted fans. How was that for
I know I could look this up, but where did that "Can We Start Again" song even come from? It was not part of the original 1970 JCS rock opera concept album (which is still the best recording!). If it was in some original draft and then cut, it was clearly for a good reason. Or was it a new Oscar-bait song composed for the film?
