My vote would be to go and see Evita. JLP seems to be sticking around on TDF so perhaps you can get a discounted tix to see it in the near future. It's also rife with a very bloated story (woul

It’s not up anymore but hoping it pops back up for next week cause they’ve got tons of seats. "
I saw the show last night via TDF and sat in the orchestra, row O, seats 104/103 (near center). It was towards the back but the view was great. It’s not a big space so the action didn’t feel far away at all. Loved the

Throwing my vote in for Tina. Saw it last night and Adrienne’s powerhouse performance electrifies. When “Tina” finds her voice and independence, the pacing really picks up. Can’t remember the last time a performer got a standing ovation after a song early in the show....and boy can she dance! She is out of this world & I’m glad to have seen her in this role. They need to just hand the Tony over to her. Will make for a nice balance to your week.
To echo the previous post, StubHub is legit. I purchased two orchestra seat tixs to Dear Evan Hansen from them a few weeks ago. Great seats but I REALLY hated how high the fees were for the show. Price for the seat was $62 each which was a steal. However, fees amounted to + $47 ($23ish each) which really sucked. In a pinch, they can offer competitive prices on seating right before the show begins but the fees are absolutely absurd.
Thanks for sharing your feedback. It's good to hear another take on the show. I actually didn't dislike him performing some old standards. I guess similar to how you felt about the Soliloquy performance, I'm accustomed to hearing those songs in smooth and buttery tones. Didn't felt like he quite nailed it but it wasn't awful.
Noted on The Last 5 Yrs. I wasn't familiar w the tune and it seemed like not the right pick for him.

The medleys he sang were not the entire songs. They were all truncated and the orchestral performances were long. If I knew going into the show there would be sizeable time dedicated to the orchestra, I might have been more prepared.
I wasn't sure if this was the right board to post this on so forgive me in advance if it's deemed 'off topic' but given Jeremy's work on Broadway, thought I would share some observations about a recent engagement.
Attended a very pricey show @ $134 (at least for me) to see Jeremy perform at Carnegie Hall for its opening season. Never saw him sing live but have always been impressed by his vocal chops and camaraderie w the audience so was excited to f

I don't think that comment is fair to those who pay a pretty penny to see a live performance. Sure, Ellen Greene is the gold standard but she's not the only actor/actress in theater who have shined in their respective roles. Others have come in afterwards and killed after original casts have moved on...hence standout performances in other revivals. When I see a musical
CATSNYrevival said: "It seems like no one is ever happy with Audrey unless it’s Ellen Greene. The last revival ditched Alice Ripley out of town and then when it got to Broadway no one seemed to like Kerry Butler either."
Guess that tells you why it's so important to nail the casting for this role. Definitely went into the show with an open mind but Tammy didn't even have the basic vocal chops to hit the notes (big, small and otherwise).
Saw the show on Tuesday. Felt like a rousing affair.
Christian Borle was superb. His comedic chops were on full display. Definitely a fan fav. LOVED him.
Jonathan Groff did a remarkable job as well. I wondered too if he would be too good looking in the role as Seymour but minutes into the show, he exuded the quirky and and zany role perfectly. He was terrifically funny and his vocals were solid. Side note, my son and I laug

Thx for the heads up. I was able to get Mezz Row B close to the center as well on Oct 2nd for $109 Excited to see this.
Theatre_Mom said: "Is row A (2nd row) center orc too close for this show?"
That seat should be perfect. This show seems designed (ideally) to be seen as close to the middle & near to the stage as possible to see the actors facial reactions. You also won't have any issues seeing the back of any of the actors. The stage isn't that high to be problematic from that distance. I liked my seat but your seat is pri
Posting a followup on my take for the two seats I purchased. We sat in seats E10 and E12 in the orchestra section far right. I was very concerned about the seats given the earlier dreadful report from these seats but I was pleasantly surprised how solid the seats truly were. There were several times the actors performed at that side of the stage. It felt truly immersive. However, there were moments when you were looking at the back of their heads but it defi
