Yes Philip Quast is the ultimate Javert, too bad he never came to Broadway for Les Mis. Similarly, Ethan Freeman on West End (1997?) was pretty good without becoming over the top. His acting was very detailed and you could tell the obsessiveness of Javert. He is another actor (American!) who hasn't been to Broadway and is performing in Europe (mostly Germany).
Yes, I remember Madame Thénardiers flirted, but that's because she knows they can get $ from JVJ, so she didn't flirt sexually. More like being super nice to him to get more money in other productions but this production it was over the top (again).
As long as you paid your own ticket, you have a right to voice your opinion. Forget about the silly nomenclatures on an internet board.
BTW I forgot to mention that there were unnecessary acting/direction just to get a laugh in this production, which was so annoying. In the scene where JVJ visits Thénardiers to take Cosset away, Madam Thénardiers was flirting, showing her leg etc.. which was so distracting. Also during A Heart Full Of Love, Marius sang fun
They have daily rush (TixToday and in person) for $40, not sure how many tickets they typically have. But if you can see this show for $40 from balcony/side of orchestra, it's good. I did pay full price but I'm a subscriber so I got some discount for orchestra center seats.
I wasn't going to see this tour as I did not like the revision (not the performance) when I saw in 2013, but I found decent seats (Opheum is huge but as long as you sit in the center orches

Try weekday, esp Wed matinee. I tried weekend shows and no seat comes up. Weekday in June I got lots of selections (but more like mezz area) You can choose seats now rather than waiting for the best available seats.
MarkBearSF said: "I'm hoping that the rumors of SF sit-down Hamilton production a year or two down the road, following a remodel of the GG Theatre is true. When Carole and the Nederlanders opened it, 25 years or so ago, it was appreciated, but it needs to be brought up to contemporary standards. First and foremost in the bathroom department. And the outer lobby has so much wasted space while the orchestra-level lobby is permanently congested. That said, the loge/
In addition to Takarazuka version in Japan, there was another full scale original version as well as three person version (Princess, Joe, and Irving) of Roman Holiday in Japan. I bet this Cole Porter version will do great in Japan as it seems they love Roman Holiday. Here is a link to three persons version. https://www.youtube.com/embed//tWZbapA4p9o
My friends went to see the evening show on June 3rd and Act one and two Hamilton actors were different. I haven't confirmed the name of the actors but I assume it's Michael (Act 1) and the alternate (Act 2). My friend said the Act 2 actor sounded like LLM. I hope Michael is okay!

I will be in a class in Santa Clara until 3pm. I could leave my car there and take public transportation to the theater. I have a reservation at a hotel very near the theater but parking is $86.50 and I refuse to pay that much to park. If I drove into town, what options might I have for overnight
Jan Nadav said: "OK Friends. I am going to do it based on your wonderful New Yorkers. So, I found Mezzanine Center G for about 320 each. Anyone know about those seats?
Hmm are you going to see before Tony Awards? If not, it could be a gamble because I don't want you to spend that much money and not seeing Ben. I don't think he misses a performance much but it's a taxing role and he'll be in the show
I sat at Mezz side and my view was perfect. I got a ticket on Telecharge two days before the show (until then, the show was sold out so I assume it was released by the house), I paid the regular price.
I liked the show and thought Ben was great but I wasn't impressed as others. I also think the show will be fine even after OBC would be gone. Saying that the show will fall apart after Ben left would be like suggesting actually the show isn't that good, only the pe
Has anyone sat in extreme side seats that are sold as partial/limited view for Come From Away? How partial is it? I have a vague recollection that I saw It's Only A Play from such seat (mezzanine) and it wasn't good. Thank you!
Shannonigans said: "Thanks for the advice LJ! I also saw this on another thread and have been constantly checking the telecharge website in addition to StubHub. The only issue is that as a tourist in NYC I wouldn't have anywhere to print a super last minute ticket buy... here's hoping I get lucky before I leave on Friday.
You'll be in NYC this Sat? because right now there are two orchestra seats available for this Sat 2p
Okay I looked at the curtain call pic and Emmy indeed changes her hair style a bit but it's unnoticeable from a distance (back orchestra); therefore it still doesn't show that she has aged.
Anyway, I agree with the critic's assessment of Luwoye’s Hamilton. When he meets Burr, he didn't show the arrogance that runs inside of him and comes off weaker than Burr, so you'd wonder why the rest of his squad immediately got drawn to him. I disagree about KGIII th
