Were a lot of seats released at the last minute for the 1st prev? Sometimes extra house seats are held for co-producers/investors or other partners or production personnel,as a precautionary measure.It's also worth noting: This production has
This is the first production of Scarlet Pimpernel I have ever seen but I still remember back in middle school in the late 90s listening to the Scarlet Pimpernel CD. I totally mouthed (no sound though) the words to "Into the Fire", "When I look at You", & "Where's the Girl". hehe
First, off I really enjoyed Tony Yazbeck's performance as Percy! Not bland at all and totally owned the role. I'm really glad he was able to pull it off! :)
My friend saw CHICAGO Saturday evening and AFW was out and her understudy was Velma (forgot the name but she told me she was great!) It was also SOLD OUT with folks standing at the back. Great to see this show still selling out!

Makes sense as I'd think the point of previews is to get as many seats filled to help with word of mouth but I know some shows limit the number of rush tix regardless of how empty the theater is. I remember going to the Once on this Island lottery on a Monday evening back in November 2017 and one of the producers came out and told us all of us had won the lottery (there were 50-60 of us there

Did miss the columns on the far right of the stage but nothing significant. It was great being closer. I enjoyed it very much but didn’t feel as emotionally connected especially in the scene proceeding Do Big, So Small. Not sure why as both Andrew and Lisa are very connected to their
I saw the show off-broadway and remember how sold out it was. It really depends whether those same fans are willing to spend more money to see it on Broadway or whether they feel content seeing the production since the off bway version was just a few months ago.
I also remember how sales looked really good the first week (around xmas break I recall some friends trying to get tix for the first preview of Be More Chill as a xmas present but it was already sold out.) It looks to me the pr
Good luck! I already have my ticket for tomorrow (bought it after they announced the new cast starting Feb 19th). I have seen the show on TKTS just a few days ago but from checking telecharge right now it looks like tomorrow's matinee is sold out. I presume they will still have rush but it may be for SRO (just speculating here.) I also checked stubhub and only 3 tix available for tomorrow. Again, good luck!
So glad you got to see this mile2go2 before the British cast left. I have tickets for tomorrow's matinee and am going with my friend from northern Ireland who is super excited (he wanted to see it with Paddy, Laura, and Fra and we figured the likelihood of them performing on their last day is quite high.)
When I first saw this play back in December, I had similar thoughts as you partly because it was the holidays and this play had a depressing ending; but it grew on me with t
I wouldn't worry too much. I bought last minute stubhub tix for Rocktopia last year and paid $30 for them thinking I got a great deal only to see that they were comp tickets. Ah well. I enjoyed the show and paid a price I can afford. Can't beat that.
