I saw Frozen last night and wild behavior from kids would have been expected, but the atrocious behavior I witnessed was from a middle aged woman. She sat directly in front of me and was told not once, but 6 times by ushers to stop taking pictures. She was even removed temporarily during act I to delete the photos. It continued during act II and when she wasn't taking photos, she was checking texts and facebook. When I asked her to please put it away because it was distracting me, she rep
I decided to wait it out last night with Stubhub. Prices started dropping around 6:45 for an 8:00 show. I finally purchased a single ticket around 7:40. It was originally marked at $250 on Stubhub and I paid $125 with fees. It was second row orchestra and the face value was $189.

I was giddy when Donna McKechnie and Baayork came on stage for Turkey Lurkey. I also loved the piece that Wicked performed with Sheryl Lee Ralph. Seth was entertaining and I particularly enjoyed the Evita references. The Jersey Boys mega cast was very entertaining and a fitting end to their run. I also liked what Fiddler was trying to do. The "where are they now" was an interesting concept, but it got a little muddled at the end. Also, what on earth was Paramour doing? Does anyone know what h
The Always On My Mind/Losing My Mind medley was probably my favorite moment of the show. It was interesting because it essentially told both sides of the story in a broken relationship: the one who was at fault and the one who was abandoned. The arrangement was so seamless you could've convinced me it was written that way if I didn't already know the songs.
