What a great concept! Love your concept! I'm another Android user eager to try it out :)

Just wear a nice suit. Preferably black. No one is policing the attire. You'll just stand out by not wearing a tux or black suit. But you'll have no problem getting in. Have fun!
They've been working on it for YEARS. Like over a decade. I think Adam Guettel was attached as the composer back in 2005-2007. Not sure how many composers they've gone through. But it's somewhat encouraging they made an annoucement about it (again).
HogansHero said: "That waitress number was not a real one even 3 years ago; it was a pre-production number that may or may not be close to reality."
If the weekly running costs go up after production starts and don't match what was in the offering documents, do the producers have an obligation to let the investors know? Or do the investors just find out when they get a financial update months after the fact?
I (shamefully) have never seen this show on stage. For some reason or another I've missed various opportunities to see productions both professional and amatuer over the years.
All I want to know is: If you've never seen the show and aren't that familiar with the music but want to see a production, is this a "good enough" production to see? Or should I hold out? I hate seeing terrible productions of good shows as a first experience.
And the weekly running cost is below some plays currently on Broadway so with those numbers they will be just fine for quite some time. They already know what the reviews will be because they were reviewed in NY. So really they need word of mouth to spread beyond the teen fanbase and they need parents to hear that it's fun for them too. That's the message this show needs to survive.
I've heard the running costs for this are extremely low. Little more than some plays. If they can keep up over $100K gross per performance then they are in for a long healthy run
SLAVE PLAY on Broadway? Dec 22

Why would Rudin transfer it? There are already producers attached who enhanced the production at NYTW and I'm assuming they have the right to transfer it.
I get what they were going for and I'm sure the marketing team could wax poetic on the subtle cultural nods and influences of the design. While I love me some synthwave pop/vaporwave aesthetic (gimme that magenta and moody electric blue), the overall design is poorly executed. The Muse poster above is a gorgeous work of pop art. Whereas, the BMC rebrand looks like something quickly slapped together in photoshop.
Are they making it more 80s to appeal to milennials and genXers?
Performance I'd like to see again: Hamilton preview at the Public. Can't remeber which preview I saw but seeing that show before all the buzz (and not knowing the songs) was priceless. I remember after the final black out the man sitting next to me whispered "Jesus!". What an experience.
Performance I wish I could have seen: Raul Julia in Nine (or really any Broadway performance by Raul Julia --
HogansHero thanks for these thoughts but I still have questions:
1. Yes, this is often true, but I have first hand knowledge that a play from Off-Bway was trying to transfer that season and was in talks with the Shuberts who own the Longacre. So, this theatre in particular was wanted. There may have been other shows in the wings as well as there usually are.
2. I understand that many shows still raise during previews. However, those shows usually
NERDS musical files $5 million dollar lawsuit Oct 30

I just want to know how Carl Levin got a theater. Didn't the Shuberts ask for some kind of proof that he had sufficient funds in the bank? Or did he provide fraudulent documents? My understanding is that it's incredibly hard to get a theater for a first time lead producer and that you have to have a certain percentage of the capitalization in the bank. Giving the production a theater gave legitimacy to his claims of having raised the $6.2 million since an investor would reasonably assume the the
Don't mess with Uber or the subway on a Sunday. Take the LIRR as HogansHero suggested above. Hands down the best way to get to JFK. Though keep in mind you will need to take the AirTrain from Jamaica station to the actual airport. And sometimes that is slow.
