Thanks to you all for your thoughts so far! Since I started this thread, I figured I should put my two cents in.
I'm an Ashkenazi Jewish woman. My great-great grandfather came to the US through Ellis Island after a pogrom. He and his family spoke Yiddish at home only until they became sufficiently fluent in English. The culture at the time for many immigrants was to "leave the old country in the old country." As a result, the language wa
uncageg said: Nice that they have included scene change music and even curtain call music. There are a lot of extra tracks In English. Wondering if these are from past productions or newly recorded?"
These are new recordings of cut songs that were never put into the show. "Dear Sweet Sewing Machine" was previously recorded by Adam Kantor and Alexandra Silber as a bonus track for the 2016 album (with Danny Burstein). The rest of the songs, I believe, hav
Question: I want to see Betty Buckley in "Dolly" when it comes to Boston. I noticed on vividseat.com that they have tickets for as low as $10. Has anyone used this ticketing service before? Is it reliable and safe? Their price point seems too good to be true.
Re: the lyric changes - I only saw the show once (the current Bway version) before listening to the album and haven't heard the off-Broadway album. I didn't notice any lyric changes because I didn't know the lyrics well enough before listening. Could someone please tell me what the original lyrics were juxtaposed with the new lyrics on the album? I'd also like to know if the changes were made in the move from off- to Broadway (from OOBC to OBC) or if the lyrics on the album ar
If I remember correctly, they did this with “Equus”, as well.
You remember correctly. They also didn't sell the box seats to "Equus" - either due to photography fears or to keep people from throwing things at Dan Radcliffe (who at the time was at the height of HP fame and it was his first time on Broadway).
Hadestown: The Movie (an idea) Jul 3

Not for nothing, but Steven Spielberg was sitting 2 rows directly in front of me when I saw it a few weeks ago....
Couldn't resist posting the secondary outcome of the line jumper situation: there was a block of 6 *premium* seats that were empty during Act I. The SRO folks were told by an usher that we were free to sit in any empty seats available after Intermission. The six of us who made friends with each other on the line snatched up those seats. Mr. Line Jumper and his girlfriend came over after we claimed them, missed out, and had to go back to their obstructed rush seats. Karma!
JBroadway said: "LuminousBeing said: "Yeah, the people in front of me Line jumpers? As in, people who cut in front of you? That shouldn't be tolerated! Especially since it's not like a normal rush where each person can get 2 tickets, so someone joining their friend might not make a difference."
Yup. 2 people "holding spots." I tried to explain the policy, the morality of it, showed them the Hadestown tweet with the rush poli

Yeah, the people in front of me got here at 4:30. I don't know when the first people arrived. There are 2 line-jumpers at this point, so my friend and I are #8 and #9. I'll post again with an update after we (hopefully!) get tickets.

Thanks for the updates, everyone! Anybody go today? I'm going to try tomorrow and would love an idea of what rush and SRO look like on a weekend day. Thank you!
For anyone who lives in Boston or who traveled there for "Caroline or Change," there's a production of "Pacific Overtures" playing at the Lyric Stage through June 16th. Tickets are up on Goldstar and other discount event websites. I'm going on June 7th. I'd love to hear reviews from BWW-ers who see it, too!
"Caroline or Change" in Boston May 11

Just saw "Caroline" again - the third-to-last performance of the run. It was very much improved since the 2nd preview! There were still some uneven moments, but the show felt tighter and sharper as well as more moving than early in the run. I'm so happy I returned. Plenty of $30 fix left on Goldstsr if anyone wants to see its closing performance tomorrow! I'd go back again if I could, but I have a paper due tomorrow at midnight.
I meant to post this earlier, but I'm finishing up school and forgot. There's a wonderful little production of "Caroline or Change" playing at the Calderwood Pavillion in Boston. There are only a few performances left until the end of the run, but for anyone in Boston (or elsewhere who can get to Boston on short notice) who would like to see it, definitely go! Very talented leads, streamlined direction, tiny house with no bad views. It's a gem of a show, and this product
