They'll try to go on and will hold the show as long as possible to wait for the weather to clear. I've been there where they performed through light rain, and when they stopped the show multiple times due to very bad weather but were then able to finish the performance.

I also tried and lost last night. It seemed like everyone around me was winning; they called so many numbers! They had a very organized system, there were just so many people there. I'd like to try again and would be happy to pair up. (I was thinking of going tonight, hoping that the weather might draw fewer crowds.)

It's a Public Works production; the Public Theater partners with different community organizations that will be involved. It's a combination of professional actors and members of those community organizations that are partners with the Public. (I don't know which groups
Yes, I enjoyed the show and am definitely excited for a repeat viewing. I'm a big fan of The National so I was particularly interested in the score, and I thought the music was absolutely beautiful. I am curious to see what changes they make to the book (act 2 in particular could use some work).
I got A7 on a Saturday night for the $97 price. I saw the show from a house right front aisle seat at Goodspeed and had a perfect view, so I hope it's similar here. I figured I'd go for front row house left this time for a slightly different perspective.
I have Mezz A 25 & 27. Has anyone sat in those partial view mezzanine seats yet who can provide info please? I wonder how the boxes compare to the mezz.

I’m an adult and I really enjoyed it when I saw it at the Lortel. (I’m a teacher and taught the book for years, so my familiarity with the story probably added to my enjoyment, but I still think I would have had a good time not being so familiar with the book.)

They have a subscription discount for 35 and under, but not a discount on single tickets. (That subscription discount wasn’t worth it for me when I was a subscriber, because I really only cared for one production each season.)
I had the same experience as Wee Thomas. I subscribed for two seasons of The New Group (the first for Sweet Charity), and I didn't care for most of the shows each season. It wasn't worth it for me; I'm not subscribing again. I'll buy a single ticket to Cyrano. I did already see Cyrano at Goodspeed last year, so I won't be completely devastated to miss it, though I do think tickets should be available to the general public.
