socjoc1107 said: Are they offering rush for this show? I just did a quick Google search and did not find anything, but the box office did not share anything a few weeks ago when I visited.
It’s not announced and They honestly may not for a bit. But it’s sides of orchestra, most are partial view I would say.
Yes the play is narration heavy, but there definitely is dialogue in the play as well. Mendes uses the narration to enhance the storyte

The Lehman Trilogy, directed by Sam Mendes, starring Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley, and Ben Miles began previews tonight.
I have to say my intuition was right when I was quite disappointed to miss this last year at the Armory, as it is truly a masterpiece work of theatre.
You can feel the effortlessness in both the direction and the acting, as this is the 4th leg of the production (2 London, 2 NYC), and the cast did not skip a single beat.
The direction tells the story

Wow. I think this thread needs to focus more on two main things that make this production truly stellar. Marianne Elliott truly has a different and unique vision for the show. There was never a moment where I questioned any of the changes from “Bobby” to “Bobbie”. In fact, some sections like “Not Getting Married” and “Barcelona” are easily the best they’ve ever been.
Secondly, this is easily one of the best supporting casts ever assembled. I am in the camp that Katrina’s voice i

My best friend just surprised me with front center orchestra tickets for tomorrow night’s show for my birthday. I feel so lucky and even more so after reading these reports! Can’t wait.

Y'all got to realize that a lot of these things are INTENTIONALLY uncomfortable and are supposed to make the audience feel uneasy. They are depictions of imperfect human beings. The world is not so nice all the time, and it has only improved to the place we are at now. We need the reality of the past to inform us on the future.

I honestly thought Euan Morton was great as George, by far the most realistic choice to play KGIII yet. He has to work for the audience's approval, compared to the previous actors in the role so far who have all been well known. Daniel Breaker is literally INCREDIBLE as Burr. He is less physically and presence wise then Odom, Dixon and Henry, naturally, and this works so well for the part. You can clearly see in his portrayal how Hamilton would be easily more likable and popular tha

Bernadette and Patti are really the preferable options here. The current queens of Broadway if you ask me. Barbara and Meryl would both be glorious, but I doubt they'd take part.

It is not the TONYs fault. It is casting directors. Tony awards are about the best performances of the season. We need to be seeing more people for all roles. That is why Oscars are actually at fault, as they have many more options to choose from. If Alana is a token role, (which it isnt, and Im sure Kristolyn Lloyd would be offended hearing that) then how is just giving an award or nomination to someone who didn't have the/one of the best performance/s of the year not a to

Bette winning Best Actress was a given- Ebersole and Patti split votes, Natasha isnt a flashy role, Eva not too high profile this season (I think she had a decent shot though)
Direction and Orchestrations were totally Great Comet.
