Go see & Juliet if you want to have a fun time. It's a jukebox musical done well. I saw it earlier this month and really enjoyed it. I saw Jamie in movie theaters and I liked it as well. It really depends on what you're in the mood for. For & Juiet, you can probably catch the original cast (the one on the CD) before they leave.

I called AR to inquire and they said The Music Man is not a participating show.

I feel the same way. Glad I saw him at the Sunday matinee. With both Tony and Maria understudies, I definitely thought he was a standout. I guess if I went back to see this again, I’d get a different Tony, Maria and Riff.

There's now a right mezz row A seat 30 available for the same price. I'm thinking of asking if I can switch since I know Telecharge has done that for folks before. The pics online seem like far sides of row A may be obstructed. Am I better off staying where I am now?"

Aren't most two acts about an hour and forty for the first half?"
Most musicals I’ve been to with 2 acts usually has a 65-75 minute first act and a 60 minute second act. A 105 minute dance heavy musical can be quite taxing on the body especially for many in the ensemble making their broadway

I’ve seen the show 3 times now on two show days and each and every time the entire cast have been very generous with their time signing and taking photos. I like that the crowds aren’t crazy large like at some other shows so you do get a chance to get an autograph from everyone in the cast (minus Loi
CATS Film Adaptation Thread Dec 20
2019, 03:08:17 PM
Decided to do a double feature last night with Star Wars at 7:00 and Cats at 9:30. Star Wars was pretty good, but Cats was horrible. I couldn’t stay till the end. I couldn’t even make it to the showstopper Memory. The entire time I was thinking who thought it was a good idea to make a film version of this rubbish. I didn’t like stage version when I saw it back in the 80s and this somehow was much worse. For those thinking of going to this, save your time and money and see something else.
There are some really good deals to be had on Audience Rewards. I would definitely take advantage of Slave Play and The Inheritance if I hadn't seen both already. But I think the best deal is Rock of Ages at 250 showpoints + $18. I don't think I've seen a better deal.

Saw it last night. At 3 hours and 35 minutes, it was way too long. There were some decent songs, but the story really dragged in the third act. I had trouble staying awake. Looking around, I wasn’t the only one.
Dolly80 said: "Totally agree. The Inheritance is far superior to Angels. And especially the recent ugly Broadway revival."
I saw both parts yesterday and I have to agree The Inheritance is far superior to Angels in America and I saw the recent revival with Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane 3 times. For me, this play was more relatable and as a result more impactful. I think with Angels I was more in awe of the stars on stage. With this, it w

I saw the show 3 times in NY, but only once with Andrew Polec. The first was the Sunday evening performance on 8/11 with Will Branner as Strat. The second was the matinee on the last day (9/ with Joey Taranto as Strat. Then finally the last performance of the run with Andre
I was shocked when he showed up at stage door after the final performance with crutches. I had tickets to both shows on the last day. He was out for the matinee but in for the evening performance. There was no indication he was injured in any wa
I kept trying random dates and found one for 2/23/2020 in the Dress Circle Row E. It really is just dumb luck and a lot of trial and error. I completed my purchase at 12:15 PM. I'm pretty sure all the free tickets are gone by now.
haterobics said: "That's more an availability issue, no? I mean, I paid $69 for Groff seats and $149 for Glick seats, both side aisles. There were still $119 seats further back for the day I'm seeing Glick, but for $30, I decided to jump up a lot of rows."
Same here. Paid $69 for Groff seats when they first went on sale, but paid $119 for Glick seats yesterday. Should have just bought seats to both Groff and non-Groff shows back then. A
BJR said: "Well, now there's not much choice. The run outside of Glick is sold out or pretty near."
Stopped by the box office yesterday to get tickets to another show with Glick and the lady at the box office said there's literally two tickets left in the entire run for Groff shows. I suspect the Glick shows will sell out as well given the limited run.
