I think this was the pre-broadway poster for Wicked??? Might have given away too much of the plot.
- NYTimes did a profile of James McMullan about his posters for Lincoln Center Theatre, including a fascinating development of "The King and I"
- David Edward Byrd chronicles a few of his poster designs including "Follies&

“Miss Saigon” - if done and adapted right could be an Oscar contender
“The Color Purple” - would be a great TV movie...maybe two parter.

Cue follow up non-apology tweet/post/video saying it was not her intention to hurt people / it was the actions of her youth / she has grown from her experiences / promises to do better, with an attached monetary donation. It’s getting predictable at this point.

Still confused about the actual name for the Helen Hayes Theatre. Second Stage website, Wikipedia, and the playbill for Lobby Hero have it as the Hayes Theater. Subsequent playbills and Playbill.com have it as the Helen Hayes Theater.

DoTheDood said: "So in theory, a show could sell a single $1 in the very back of the theater for a single night with ever new block of tickets and be able to blaster "$1 ticket available" on their advertising? Sounds like an episode of "Nathan For You""
This does happen in other industries, for example Megabus always advertises their $1 seats, which does exist and in limited quantity, just to entice people to buy.

Julian Marsh from 42nd Street? Or is he more of a featured role?
I’m tempted to say Fantine and Grizabella, though I know they’re featured, I feel their iconic status/songs often propel them to above the title credits for their actors.

Is it weird giving one of the cast members a closing night gift? How likely are they to do stage door for this final show?
