Question Re. Official West End Ticket Site Jun 23
2019, 04:21:53 PM
Hello, I use Ticketmaster and Telecharge for Broadway show tickets. Planning my first trip to London, and wanted to ask those of you who have booked tickets, what sites you've used. There are SO MANY sites, and I want to be sure that I'm using a reputable/legit source. Also, I have used broadwaybox.com for Broadway discount codes many times, and wondering if you can suggest a West End source for discount codes? Thanks!

Do you not realize that people have their own opinions? How dare you defy other people's opinions as if you know it all and have the last word.

For all the talk of how funny I was told it was I was surrounded by audience members who barely laughed. I should add that when the show was over throngs of audience members got up and left without staying for the curtain call. Its an awful looking set with summer stock choreography performed by an ensemble that lo

Personally I wish Ryan Murphy made the Netflix announcement after the Tony Awards."
There has been no official word yet about whether any of the Broadway cast will be in

When I close my eyes and picture Brooks singing and dancing on stage, the biggest smile comes across my face. :)

Arrived home from a 6 show trip. Saw Beetlejuice, The Prom, Dear Evan Hansen, Tootsie, Come From Away, and Beautiful. I've seen many other shows over the years, and feel compelled to say how much I enjoyed The Prom.
This show soars. The ensemble members are some of the strongest I've ever seen--that choreography! Beth, Brooks, Angie and Christopher are opulent. The book is so strong. I laughed all night.
While driving home yesterday, I listened to the cast recording. I cried.

I do the same! I live in Atlantic Canada, and only get to NYC once a year, usually, every two years, so, I make every minute count. I enjoy looking back at my itineraries, and I often marvel at how I fit so much in! I'm definitely a man with a plan! This May, seeing: Beetlejuice, The Prom, Dear Evan Hansen, Tootsie, and Come From Away. I have a Sunday night spot left, and now that Jeremy Jordan is going to star in Waitress, I may have to break my "never see a show more than once" rule!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos--you covered a lot of territory! I'm visiting in May for 5 nights...these have me getting excited!
Phantom or Beautiful? Mar 3

Thanks haterobics! It's funny you should say that. I've been visiting the city annually, for the last 10 years (I live in Atlantic Canada), and every time I go to buy tickets, I think, "I really should see Phantom" but then, I think about other, more current shows, and think, "Well...I'll see it next year!" I think I'll buy a ticket! Thanks again.

For those of you who have seen both, which one did you enjoy most? I've already purchased tickets to other shows, and can't decide between these two. Your help is greatly appreciated!
Typically, how many months/weeks does a broadway show last, once producers have issued a closing notice? What is the shortest length of time you have heard? My apologies if this question has already been asked. Many thanks.
Thanks UncleCharlie. Train tickets and hotel already paid for. I am supposed to see the show on my actual birthday. I grew up listening to the original recording--it is my favorite show. I'll try not to worry bc, as you say, it's out of my hands! Watching CNN as I type this and I recognize that there are much bigger problems in our world. Thanks again, everyone, for your perspectives.

Also, I imagine that he can afford to continue running it at a loss, and then make back some money on tour.
