I hope someone here was at Oklahoma's last show, because I'd love to hear about it! I went to four performances over the course of the run, and would have been at closing if I didn't live on the opposite coast. What a fantastic production.
I really enjoyed the show at NYTW! I've never seen the film, but I liked the subject manner, and the songs were catchy. I agree that it's a little rough around the edges, and I'd love to see what they end up changing, but it has a lot of heart. If I had to pick between seeing Moulin Rouge again and seeing this again, I'd go for this in a heartbeat.
Happy that a bigger audience will get a chance to see it, though I'm guessing it won't la
So I just bought tickets via Today Tix because it was easy and I was starting to get worried about availability of good seats - an hour and a half in line at the Old Vic's site, and the bar representing my place in line has only moved like a third of the way over.
Of the shows you've mentioned, I'd highly recommend both Hadestown and Betrayal, but especially Hadestown. I also come from LA a few times a year and see as many shows as I can, and they are two of my favorites from this year.
ArtMan said: "I'm in the minority on this. I hated it and couldn't wait for it to be over. The best thing was the legroom of my $39 ticket in the rear mezz."
Hah, if this is true, you must have loathed it, because our lottery seats were in the rear mezz last night (C 115-117), and I haven't sat in a seat with that little legroom in a very long time. It was extremely tight (and completely packed!) up there. But the sightlines are very good,
Things we liked: Peter Dinklage's performance (aside from the singing, which was not good, especially compared to the vocals of the rest of the cast). I loved the mini-Great Comet cast reunion of Grace McLean and Scott Stangland, and I actually liked the set, even if it was a bit spare.
But we had a lot of issues with the rest. I love The National's music in general, but this was all pretty forgettable&nbs
CB4Ever said: "Any discount codes for this? Does the Pasadena Playhouse do rush tickets, or has anyone gotten tickets through TodayTix for this?"
I bought tickets through TodayTix for this for $49 + fees and ended up with great second row seats, but that was before the show opened, so I doubt there's anything like that available for the remainder of the run. But TodayTix does have $20 rush tickets available daily.
Thanks so much for the detailed seat breakdown of D8! We have D8 and D10 for a show in October and I feel a little better about it now after those early reports (though I am still debating an exchange).
I saw some people tweet at the show to ask if there were planned outages, and they said they don't make that info publicly available. I'm sure Denver Milord is great, but I'd be really disappointed to miss Damon, so I get it. Hope he's back for you!
Bought some $25 seats toward the front of the right side orchestra thanks to the comments in this thread. They aren't labeled partial view (even thought it seems like they should be), so I am hoping that most of the action for this is toward the center of the stage.
