I can't make the show tomorrow night (8pm). It's at the Manhattan Theatre Club at NY City Center on 55th. The seats are row C, left orchestra. Face value for the pair is $179. Just asking $50 for both. Selling them together, as they are in the same pdf.
If interested, please e-mail me at email@example.com I am at shows this afternoon and evening, so, depending on when you write,I may be slow to respond.
I saw this on Saturday. I thought it was a nice piece of writing, though there are some shortcomings in the portrayal of the ambiguity concerning the relationship between the Falco and McKean characters. The acting was excellent, especially Falco and Scolari. Not a riveting show, but I found it satisfying and sometimes poignant.
(As far as seating, I was third row orchestra, and I've never sat in the balcony in that theatre, so I can'
I was at the show Friday night. I found Ramasar's presence objectionable and somewhat distracting given what has been reported about his actions. I think if there were broader public/audience awareness of the situation, the producers would pull him. I'd be curious to hear how well his understudy performed. Ramasar is -- apart from his dancing -- the one weak link in the cast. But I suspect it's not easy to find someone who can danc
Granted, it's surprising. But I would watch a play about a man brushing his teeth if Ivo were directing it. With all the bland, uninspired productions of musicals these days on Broadway, I'm thrilled to see this is happening. And I have tremendous respect for Rudin for backing this.
In my experience in selling tickets I can't use on this board, you need to offer a more substantial discount to be successful -- particularly, where, as in this case, it's on short notice and there are still good seats available from the box office for those dates.
I saw The Jungle (about the Calais migrant camp) in the West End last week. It recently transferred from the Young Vic. It is brilliant and essential theatre.. I would love to see it eventually transfer to Broadway, though I doubt it will -- especially as it requires a major (and no doubt costly) transformation of a theatre to create its immersive quality. But I could see it readily working for a short run at the Park Armory. Fingers crossed.

I found the writing to be really disjointed and all over the place. Maybe that's the point? I didn't like it nearly as much as Teenage Dick, Skintight, or Cyprus Avenue, which are all shows I've seen recently. Guess this just wasn't for me, that's ok! Glad everyone is getting a kick out of it,
DAME said: "At Angels,yesterday;even with shorts I waswarm. Not unbearable. But I was so happy to be comfortable. The guy behind me was digging into his m&m's for the first 15 minutes of part 1. Luckily the lady to my right told him to "knock it off or I am shoving thebag down your throat". He stopped. They had words during the first intermission. I couldn't hear what they were . But I thankedher as did someone else. . Wearing shorts is fine.

It may not be good poetry or cinema or anything that conforms to standards that you've been taught or you yourself want to see upheld. I guess without examples of something being cinematic but not being cinema, it's hard for me to imagine. Maybe you're thinking about music videos or tv shows with cinematic qualities but it not being cinema. To me, the only difference is the form and how it label

But is it really special for a performer to be singing his same songs telling the same stories in what just happened to be a Broadway venue?
I don't understand how some guy setting up shop for the first time to sing some of his old songs and tell his old stories is as 'special
CT2NYC said: "I'm not sure what's so hard to understand about this.Springsteen on Broadwayis highly acclaimed and wildly successful Broadway show that doesn't fit into any of the competitive Tony catergories. Why doesn't he deserve an award for it? I bought $75 tickets to see it in September, but, judging from Bruce's Tony performance, it strikes me as far more theatrical than I expected. I'm excited to see it in its entirety."
I still tend to think it is a category mistake to treat the Springsteen show as theatre. Many musicians (particularly folk musicians) incorporate a good amount of autobiographical material (and other reflections) into their shows without anyone believing that they have just witnessed theatre. Theatre, at least as I (non-dogmatically) conceive of it, involves at least some element of the actor's craft. Springsteen may be a good storyteller, but part of his appea
