Isn't titanic a bit big/expensive for that space? Correct me if I'm wrong.
And I'd love to see Octet but I think it needs some more work before it's broadwaybound. Thankfully I don't find Dave to be one to jump the gun.
Ugly Costumes? Oct 12

Even if the actor is wrong about their costumes, it's still worth a conversation. If they don't feel good in their costume, they're not performing at their best, and that impacts the show.
Ugly Costumes? Oct 12

I did have one experience with this. We did the photoshoot for the show with faux vintage outfits because we didn't have the real costumes yet. For the real costume I looked through literally thousands of options, ended up driving 10 hours round trip to get the exact one I wanted. It was real vintage, and then we had it altered to accommodate blocking with equally vintage fabric. It was the real deal, and suited her non-showy character.
I saw it a few weeks ago and have been thinking about it ever since.
I saw a high school production of Oklahoma! as a child, and it was bad enough to leave me with an irrational hatred of the show more than a decade and a half later. I went mostly to see Damon, and with a curiosity for this 'reinvention' of the show, but without strong memories of it.
It worked, mostly.
The acting was phenomenal. Couldn't take my eyes of Patrick Vail as Judd, e
"Porn site at first glace" is a pretty accurate description. Yikes. Beyond that, it's a little headache inducing. It does kinda work for letting people understand the vibe of the show though, so there's that. With nothing beyond the site to go on, I'd think it was... diverse, dance-y, very modern day, probably 'high concept'.

Man I want to know where to get these. High school productions in my city are 15-20 and non equity but taking reasonably seriously theatre is $40 across the board.

There have been bootlegs as long as there has been the ability to record. Before that, shows were bootlegged by someone writing down all the lines as they were said. Bootlegs have existed in some form or another since theatre began. Bootlegs exist regardless of whether a show has been professionally filmed, though it does make those bootlegs harder to find.
Basically, it's going to happen regardless. And the people with their phones out during a show getting called out by the actors, th
I think there's something a bit broken when many shows HAVE to charge high prices just to make the economics work.
Most shows do not return their investment. Simply put, a show can't survive on $40 tickets. We talk about an average ticket price of $100 as a benchmark for decently healthy shows.
At the same time, capitalization costs seem to be drifting upwards, just as the average ticket price across broadway is drifting upwards. Sometimes to the point of
Oklahoma seating question Oct 1

The table seats do get interaction from actors walking on/sitting on the tables. I sat front row where there were no tables and loved the closeness of it. Either side is good.

In terms of practical solutions, hadestown pricing is very dynamic so if you're flexible you can get a deal.

Yepppp. All it would have took was a half assed "as a christian it is important to love everyone as jesus preaches." and it likely would have blown over.

Man. It would have been so easy for her to not be in this position. Post a ramble about how jesus loves everyone and it'll blow over. Probably shouldn't, but it would. This is "I don't believe I should have to do a single thing and should recieve zero pushback for being homophobic". The self righteousness is galling.

I read you can use it in person at the box office but wondering if I can still use it right before the performance?

I used mine at the BO about an hour before curtain and
There is nothing wrong with wanting to see a specific actor, or even a specific actor being the reason you want to see the show. That's your business, and there's nothing wrong with figuring out how to maximize your chances of getting that outcome. Last weekend, I waited till an hour or two before curtain, and checked in with the box office about my chances of seeing Damon before buying a ticket. I am very sure his understudy is fantastic, it has nothing to do with talent, but Damon i

I'm more concerned what age they look than what age they are. Reeve Carny plays fine against Eva in Hadestown despite being well over a decade older than her.

I believe the box office said Ali was out for the rest of the month but tbh I was mostly concerned with Damon and he was in. :) no other vacations that I know of. I didn't really like Sasha but I don't know how much that was the role/direction and how much was the actor
