To the woman sitting in the Founders' Circle Row H Seat 47 (on the aisle) at last night's (Tues., 12/4) performance of Hamilton in Greenville, SC.
Obviously you need some education into proper etiquette when attending a live theatrical performance. Even if you are a rabid Hamilton fan, it is not within reason to jump out of your seat or flail your arms whenever something you like occurs on stage. It is also most certainly not proper to record or photograph the
I'll never forget the night I was to a production at the Lunt Fontaine. I was seated in the front mezz. Three women arrived just before curtain, giggling and carrying cups of soda. They sat down in the front row. Sometime during the performance one of the ladies placed her soda on the ledge in front of her. Evidently at some point she was unable to reign in her enthusiasm for what was happening on stage and moved in such a way causing the soda
Regarding the concept of theater-goers not knowing the meaning of the word "intermission" I suggest that before the performance starts an announcement be made: "When the lights come up, the actors are going to take a break for fifteen minutes because they're tired. Take that time to get up and pee or go to the refreshment counter to buy a Slushy or bag of chips so you can slurp and crunch your way thr
Thanks to all who have posted reviews of the show. I am now officially very excited about seeing the production in June (Loge 300 section aisle). At first I was a bit hesitant about purchasing tickets for one reason only. (I know I will be in the minority here and will likely be sought our for tar and feathering but....) I am not a fan of Norbert Leo Butz. Every show I've seen him I thought his performance was so way over the top that it made me uncomfortable
I wonder. Are these people who are so taken aback by a swear word in The Little Mermaid as offended when our fake president peppers his speeches with "hell"s, "damn"s, and "crap"s. Did they leave the room during the Access Hollywood tapes? Are they offended by his numerous adulturous affairs during his three marriages? Do they have anything to say about his bullying demeanor? Hypocrites all! They make me sick.
Saw La La Land last night after anxiously waiting for it to open here. My feelings on the film are mixed. It was good but I think all the love for it is overrated.
The plot is hackneyed. It's been done ad nauseum through film. As mentioned earlier, I felt much of the characters' motivations just didn't make sense. That being said, I must have been drawn into their plight because I had tears in my eyes at the end.
All right! Just got my ticket for June 8th. Front Mezz Center C 1. Don't know if Groban is in or out that night. Makes no difference to me though. As much as I would like to see him, I'm going more for the show as a whole. Looking forward to it.
Is anyone else having a problem ordering tickets for Comet through Telecharge? For over a week they've been posting a notice about a problem. It's possible to order any other show through Telecharge but not Comet. Curious.
Can we please have a serious answer to this question? I'd like to plan to see Comet when I come up in June but there is still nothing beyond April. I hope producers don't pull a Hamilton and skyrocket ticket prices after the great reviews.
I do think Gypsy has one of the best musical scores ever written, but I will admit that I am not enamored with the show overall. This production made my head explode. Not only did Imelda screech and scream her way through - everybody did. The whole thing was a frantic exercise in frenzied family disfunction of the highest order. There are so many spots where some gentle softness could have come through but it never did. I felt
