I've seen some very helpful posts on this website: http://www.auditionupdate.com/ re: whether casting is seeing non-AEA, and other details. I know a lot of non-AEA friends go to the calls very early and just sit and wait (like the other posters have said). Hope this helps!
You can buy them online. There isn't a code for it. Just select mezzanine for seating. The seats Row F and above are $19.75. There are less fees when you purchase at the box office, but if you aren't in the NYC area, online does work.

We went last Tuesday night and saw Megan Osterhaus as Mary Poppins. I was disappointed that there was an understudy, but she did fine. Gavin Lee was incredible and really stood out. I was also curious as to how the understudy we saw compared to Ashley Brown (who we were really hoping to see) and if Gavin stands out as much to her Mary.

We just bought tickets for January 8 and found some great seats- a little to the side of the stage, but I'm sure there are some seats a little more center available around that date. We haven't finish buying tickets for our trip in August (so far have Mary Poppins....hope we like that one and Spring Awakening), but I didn't want to miss out on The Little Mermaid!

We're going to see the show in August, but someone bought us the cast recording today. Will it ruin the show if we listen to it first? We listened to Ave Q before seeing it and wish we would have waited.... Just curious to read your opinions. Thanks!

He has a good attention span, but we'll do a Disney musical when he's old enough . Until then, his Grandma will come into the city so we can catch up on some shows. We're still trying to decide what else to see (from this season's shows).
I just remember the bathroom at Studio 54 was a complete zoo. Hopefully the Eugene O'Neill will be better .

I've never missed the beginning of Act 2 (I'm a woman), but I have definitely come close. Whether we see a show here (Miami or Ft. Lauderdale) or in NYC, I always make a mad dash to the bathroom right as intermission starts. However, I did have some VERY close calls (making it back to my seat) when I was pregnant. I just know that many Broadway theaters have fewer and smaller bathrooms. I hope that when we see Spring Awakening I make it back in time! We're so excited to see this show and go back

Are there bathrooms near the stage or is there a separate one that people who sit onstage can go to? I just know that Broadway theaters tend to have very few bathrooms and if you don't get to one immediately, you miss the beginning of the second act!
Also, where on the myspace page is the detailed seating chart?

We bought the frame at either Target or Walgreens that was too big. We put a white piece of paper behind the poster and the poster in the middle. The white serves as a border (you can use black or whatever color matches) and it looks nice.

I saw the show last night and I think it was quite a different show than previous nights. Although they didn't say this after the show, I think it was the last night of the tour (the actor who played Mark stated this when he was interviewed on NBC6). It was the complete opposite in the funeral scene- Collins was REALLY emotional. I was wondering how he could hit those notes in between the tears and sobs. From that point on, it seemed as if the whole cast was very emotional. Throughout the show,

Badseed- Sorry this is slightly off the thread topic, but how old was your son when you first took him to the theater? My husband and I were discussing this recently. I'm sure it depends on the child, but I do wish to expose our children to theater from a young age too.

In Ft. Lauderdale (this was a few months ago), Maureen made the Broadway Cares announcement and was in the main part of the lobby collecting money. They may not be collecting anymore (not sure what months they do that), but she was very visible and accessible. You could see how much she loves the show and really cares about her role and the cast. She was very genuine.
As for Jo, Susan was listed in the Playbill as the main Jo, not the understudy when we saw it. She was excellent.
As for people asking, "What should I see?"... I also think they should be encouraged! Watching a brief clip online does not compare to the full theater experience. People are allowed to ask for opinions on shows. Because of many posters' reviews and feedback, I've avoided certain shows and seen others. Fo
