Moulin Rouge (pro) reviews  Jul 26 2019, 11:03:22 AM

Yes. The film was a love it or hate it spectacle with its visual feast. There is no question that it was polarizing. Good. I have a feeling that I will love this one.

There were still no magnets being sold but the headshots were given out last night.

Saw this last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very funny and Fontana does a great job. Audience members were laughing a lot too. With the Tony nominations also announced yesterday, in the scene where his manager tells him “You were going to be nominated for a Tony and I was even going to vote for you” got the cheers and the loudest and longest applause of the evening. So well deserved.

Glad to see all the positive reviews. Can’t wait to see this next week! Based on the earlier reviews here, I was beginning to doubt if I made a mistake buying the tickets weeks in advance. I just knew those pre-Broadway reviews couldn’t be all wrong.

Juniors on 49th Street was very average at best the last time we ate there. They were definitely going for bigger portion sizes (quantity) rather than quality. Enjoyed our meals more at Ippudo, which is a few blocks away from TS.

That depends on who applauded. If it’s the same demographic who did to the latest Jurassic World film, best to stay away.

I struck up a conversation with the guy working there when I stopped by over a week ago. There was another customer who he was talking to prior to me arriving. Both were very friendly and we talked about the shows currently playing in town. We also talked about how some of the merchandise for DEH changed after Ben Platt left the show.

When I was in the city over a week ago, I went to the box office to see what kind of tickets they have for a show the next evening. They offered me side orchestra seats, Row G near the aisle at regular prices. Depending on the day of the week, you may get lucky just walking up to the box office and see what they have.

ANGELS IN AMERICA Reviews  May 18 2018, 10:15:52 AM
I’m adding my thoughts after seeing it over a week ago. I have not seen any version of this material (stage or film) nor was I familiar with its storyline. My expectations were high considering its cast and with Marianne Elliott as the director having previously seen her work on “Curious Incident”.

This production is spectacularly done. The staging, sound and lighting designs are beautifully done. The angel’s appearance at the end of Part 1 brought down the house. Audiences were appl

Where to sit for Once on This Island  May 16 2018, 12:45:40 AM
A little too late responding but you made a great decision with those seats and buying it now. I also sat at the even 200 side and saw Lea quite a bit facing us. Saw the show the night before the Tony nominations were announced. Since then, demand has gone up. Enjoy.

Damn Yankees


Rock of Ages

Kinky Boots


I’ve been lucky enough to avoid far worse musicals.

Speaking of the Tony's, I saw the show the day the nominations were announced.  That evening, all the signage around the theatre were already changed to reflect the Tony nominations it has gotten.  It's amazing how fast those were put up.

While I wasn’t exactly blown away by TBV, I do expect it to win Best Musical and that is just fine compared to the rest of the nominees. I wish I would have liked this one a lot more. But the long pauses are just that - long. Someone said that “it felt like a play with music, as opposed to a “musical””. To me, that just sounds about right.
