Hadestown and Oklahoma! Were my two favorite musicals this year. I’ve seen Waitress multiple times and have a ticket for the final weekend in anticipation of Sarah B. Coming back. I’d try to make another trip to see it with Sarah if possible.

He also had his usual one act Summer Short at 59e59. I saw a post where he said the Gerffen show was cancelled because Chrissy Metz pulled out. I think MCC dropped him because they have become super woke - not for the better it seems.

Some idiot took a flash photo during the nude scene at the Matinee. I didn’t see them escorted out. They may have been just made to delete the photo.

The Can Can seats at Moulin Rouge. The Joe Iconis Christmas Extravaganza - December 15 are the last 2 shows. I haven’t seen Norm Lewis but he also does a show at 54 Below. Since you have a massive budget, check out what’s Happening atCafe Carlyle. Also, Birdland has a Christmas Show and Freddy Cole (Nat’s brother) performs there every Christmas.

If that’s how you define a “straight” play, Linda Vista is for you.

If you have a strong stomach, you could go see Our Dear Dead Drug Lord. I think it crosses the line into being sensational just for the sake of being “edgy”, but most critics - except Sarah Holdren and a few others - disagree.
“One big problem, for me - the lighter skinned gay guy was supposed to be a person of color. From my seat, he looked typically Irish. He kept saying that he was a person of color. I thought he was trying to make a statement, not telling the truth. Odd.”
I think that was the point, he considered himself a person of color and genetically he would fit the definition of a mixed race person, but because of the way he looks no one accepts him as one - especially other POC.

The Hayes is tiny and impressively raked so most seats should be okay. The action takes place on the turntable in the middle of the stage so I think the sides are good. A few of the characters do karaoke stage right but you can still see them. I’m 5’9”ish and sat in the second row and it wasn’t horrible. It was a trade off for being that close to these wonderful actors.

A warning: the stage is very high due to the turntable. The first few rows could be considered partial view especially for shorter people.
If you are interested in seeing the nudity, you are probably better off in the front of the mezzanine or back middle of the orchestra.

When word gets out on this, it should become a tough ticket given the size of the Hayes. Consider yourself lucky if you grab a TDF ticket now. This makes Slave Play look like a Disney production.
Thorne wrote some of my favorite episodes of the British “Shameless” and “Skins” TV series. He also created a Sci-Fi series called “The Fades” which I haven’t seen but is kind of a cult show. He’s very talented which is probably why JK Rowling chose him as a collaborator. I actually really liked the first part of CC when I saw it a second time. The second part not at all. And you can hardly blame him for Kong.

My experience with the autograph table was that the most desirable people (Will Roland, Betsy Wolfe) were away from their spots when I went through doing their photo ops (I was able to get their autographs afterwards but not meet them). If there is somebody you are really interested in meeting, I would recommend doing the photo op. You may still have time to do the table, put prioritize photo ops even though they are more pricey.
