I remember really enjoying reading a similar thread last season, and I thought it would be fun to remember some of your favorite "moments" during a production this year. These are some of mine:
Harry Potter (maybe some spoilers) - There is SO MUCH to enjoy about this show from a theatrical/stage craft point of view IMO, but I especially loved the moment when Albus and Scorpius come upon Hogwarts from the Forbidden Forest, I just thought the way the music transitions from
So pleased for Angels in America (except for James McArdle ) I know she divided some people on here but I loved Susan Brown so I'm happy she was nominated, and I loved the score so pleased about that too.
I've attended several performances at the Metropolitan Opera that were streamed for their Live in HD in cinemas, and there was never any indication of what was happening except for the very obvious (but not terribly intrusive) cameras filming the performance. I guess perhaps they don't ever show the audience in those streams, I've never watched one.
My experience was somewhat unique as I missed my TDF dates due to the snowstorm and went the next week pastdated, but I had two different seats for each part. Part I was in orchestra P 7, Part II I was in mezzanine J 117.
I went to Bareburger on 57th between 8th and 9th. It's a chain but I always think their food is good, not too expensive, and if it's a Wednesday marathon you'll be there during happy hour which was an unexpected bonus. I sat at the bar and read a book while leisurely eating and had plenty of time.
Incidentally, when I saw it the week after the snow storm a couple of weeks ago Part I started about 10-15 minutes late because of the box office having issues, so the
After being told by the Neil Simon box office on the phone that they wouldn't be past dating any TDF tickets, I just got an email from TDF saying Angels was offering to past date my tickets for next week. I was pretty bummed to have to miss and not expecting this to happen. Thank the theatre gods!
I listened to Hamilton a ton before I saw the show, and I really wish I hadn't. It may have been the fact I was in the back of the mezzanine, and I was also seeing mostly replacements, or it may have been an off night for the cast, I don't know, but I remember not being completely blown away like I was expecting to, which I think was partially due to knowing the cast recording so well. And probably overhyping. Or most likely a combination of all of the above. TL;DR I say don't lis
viola13 said: "I just picked up my tdf tickets for Angels and they told me they would not be past dating tdf. But that also may be since I'm obviously here. Would love to past date it though, I probably won't be able to get home tonight."
Finally got through to the box office and was told the same thing. Oh, well...I probably would have been worried about getting home the entire 7.5 hours. But still annoying
Anyone have experience with snow days and TDF tickets? I too am supposed to see Angels today and I would be coming in from Princeton. I think I'd be ok getting there, it's getting back that's the problem. Someone mentioned earlier that Nederlanders said they were pastdating all tickets today...would that apply to me too?
OH! So great to heat that this happened to you! Miss the insanity of the old thread. We were all on it! Hope all has been well!
I remember that thread too. I was a long time lurker on it thinking perhaps one day I would give it a go, but I was eventually able to get a ticket through a conventional release when the first replacements just started. Maybe I can try cancellation now and see it again...
I think Angels perhaps lost with their weird preview schedule. I usually like to see shows in previews but I didn't like nor did my schedule work with the seeming randomness of some of the pairings combined with the fact that you had to purchase together (which I also think maybe is hurting ticket sales).
