Moulin Rouge 2021 Tickets  Jul 13 2020, 02:22:38 PM

Thanks VotePeron for the thoughtful response. I recognized that it was likely in relation to the pandemic--what you've indicated, makes sense to me. Thanks again. 

 



Moulin Rouge 2021 Tickets  Jul 13 2020, 09:50:25 AM

Hello, I noticed on Ticketmaster that tickets for MR are not available to purchase:

March 2021: Mondays-Thursdays

April-November 2021: Mondays-Wednesdays

(I know that they don't typically offer Monday evening performances.)

Anyone know what's up?  

Thanks!

I haven’t heard anything. My tickets were for this Thursday so I’m curious when I will hear anything

I had tickets for MR this Thursday night as well, and haven’t received my refund from Ticketmaster, as well.  All of my Telecharge refunds were immediate.

It also indicated that several shows are using advances to pay for expenses during this time period. I find this a bit confusing, as I thought I read on another board that ticketing agencies (e.g., Ticketmaster) don’trelease funds to productions until the actual performance date?

Also curious about this! I hope show


Advances to Pay Expenses?  Apr 19 2020, 02:44:54 PM

The Broadway League president recently indicated that several shows are using advances to pay for expenses during this period.  

I asked in the thread related to her interview when ticketing agencies (e.g., Ticketmaster, Telecharge, etc.) release funds to productions.  I thought I read once in an unrelated thread that it wasn’t until the actual performances date, but, this makes me think that is not true.  

For those of you in the know, can you please c


A Candid Conversation With Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin: Future for Broadway.. what will it be like?  Apr 17 2020, 04:11:03 PM

Thanks for sharing this.  I agree—very informative, and realistic.  

Even once they receive the go-ahead, they believe a 6-week turnaround will be required. 

The league also indicated that they were refunding and exchanging tickets up to June 7/20. It never said performances would resume June 8/20.  Fine.  However, if tickets are on sale post June 7/20, I can understand the inference.  (I never suspected Broadway would reopen

Don’t live on the east coast so I ended up taking the refund. We will see when I get it. Still waiting for refunds from the public and roundabout."



Wow at the 25% cash back plus ticket upgrade? So for example, you could upgrade a Mez


Tickets Refunds  Apr 10 2020, 02:23:26 PM

Hi all, I had tickets for Moulin Rouge, for April 30/20, and received the following message from Ticketmaster today:

“...upgrade your seat locations and get at least 25% cash back if you exchange your tickets now into a future performance between July 7 and September 27, 2020

No thanks.  I opted for the refund.  Unfortunately, I don’t suspect Broadway will


Wanted: Bettlejuice & Tootsie Souvenir Programs  Apr 5 2020, 05:00:44 PM

Thanks Brody. I saw that the playbillstore had it, but, the shipping cost to Canada is $45.  If no one on here has one they are willing to sell, I will buy it from the Beetlejuice merchandise store—although the program is $5 more, the shipping cost is only $15.

I’ve looked everywhere online for a Tootsie Souvenir Program, and can only find one source—TheatreGold, for $95!  Any suggestions?

Thanks again. 

 



Wanted: Bettlejuice & Tootsie Souvenir Programs  Apr 5 2020, 12:45:56 PM

Please PM me if you have a Broadway Beetlejuice and/or Tootsie Souvenir Program(s) you’d be willing to sell.  Looking for new condition, and ideally, cast inserts.  I live in Canada, and would obviously pay all shipping costs. Thanks!

I am so sorry for your loss, dramamama. As SweetLips indicated, seeing your name so often here on the boards, I feel like I know you.  I am sending you and your family positive, warm, healing thoughts during this difficult time.

Thanks joevitus. I realized that it wasn't a dialogue--2-way communication, so, no point! lol

Anyone who struggles with, or disagrees with your perspective, is living in fantasy?  

I’m going to bow out of this discussion with you Kennedy, because that’s twice now you have told me that I am living in a fantasy because I am struggling to believe your comment.   Unfortunately, the discussion is not going anywhere. 

I’d encourage you to post a new thread sharing your thinking that “many” Tony voters don&rsqu

Thank you for this thoughtful discussion thread.  

My name is John, I’m 37, and I live in Atlantic Canada. I work in law.  I visit NYC once a year, to catch a handful of shows, visit some museums/botanical gardens, and eat lots of great food. 

Admittedly, these past few weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions.

Early on, I canceled my late April trip to NYC. I felt major disappointment about not seeing some shows that I was really l

This is a theatre-based chat board. My lord. If I read another response like this...  You’d think that this were a board dedicated to oceanographers, or a particular athletic sport, or brides to be. People are going to ask about, or relay their experiences and/or emotion

I can name a handful of people who don't go and vote. Which means there are many more.
