I just mean there were thousands of people (actual fans) trying to buy tickets, and gobbling up extras to mark them up 300% and make a profit later on seems unfair to fans getting kicked off ticketmaster time and again.
Do we think that people are still going to want to spend $1000 on tickets come January? I've not seen it yet (am dying to) but will the show lose some of its appeal between now and January and January to May? I'm reading of people buying 3 or 4 tickets for April but only plan on using a pair and are hoping to sell the extras for $600 a pop or however much come January. That sounds like a bit of a risk to me (as well as shady and unfair). What do you guys think? Will people s
DottieD'Luscia said: "For 2016? From what I remember, the new block of tickets were for dates in 2017.
I tried for 45 minutes last night and gave up. I just wanted 1 ticket. Ticketmaster should have the option of searching for a range of dates, in addition to searching for a specific date. I would have taken whatever came up. I've seen it twice, but I bought my tickets before the show opened. I'll try for the Chicago production next week
Is anyone happening to see 2016 seats left? Probably too late but thought I would ask. Got booted off TM about six or seven times with tickets in hand and by the time I saw the amazing tip about seats popping up, TM was down for maintenance. I've been going through dates between September and October but nothing. Thank you!!
Did anyone see the 2000-02 revival of 'The Rocky Horror Show' Jan 12
2010, 03:09:02 PM
I saw it three times and loved it. Twice with most of the original cast and once with the Rocky Returns cast (Terrence Mann and Sebastian Bach as Frank and Riff Raff, respectively). I absolutely loved it. I thought it was a lot of fun and the audience interaction was different every time I went. I remember when Terrence Mann played Frank 'n Furter and he was in bed with Brad, someone shouted "That's illegal in New Jersey!" to which Terrence Mann replied, "Well we're not in f*ckin' New Jersey, ar

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how much the STEADY RAIN auction item went for (the tickets and backstage meet and greet)? I was wondering just because it seemed like it would go for the most this year. And I'm just curious admittedly...

GRAVEYARD SHIFT sounds like incredibly camptacular. Is the Minetta Lane easily accessible from Grand Central Station? I have no idea where it is and for some reason HopStop.com isn't working on my computer.

Trevor Braun is playing Michael. I've also been told by a cast member that Trent will most likely be the last original Billy to leave the show.

Just got back from seeing this in Westport last night. I have to say that I agree completely with someone who said there was no energy. With the original off-Broadway cast, there was this spark, this energy, it even shone through on the cast recording. Something about this production didn't quite click and I was really disappointed with it.
The cast was alright. I've never been a particular fan of Colin Hanlon's, and he turned out an OK performance. I have yet to see him in a role where
I must admit I miss their old Rush policy website, though. It was far more organized and reader friendly.

This is true (though, I haven't read the hundreds of posts in said official thread, so) but for all intents and purposes of what the original poster is asking, he is a Billy. ("Or is the fourth Billy an understudy if one of the other three is unable to perform?") He's in the rotation, so he is performing because he is scheduled, not because the other Billy's cannot. It's a technicality that he's listed as an understudy. Like I said: for all intents and purposes.
It's those, I guess you

Tommy's not an understudy anymore, he's officially in the rotation as Billy as of March. He was not nominated for the Tony because he did not open with the show, at that point he was still an understudy. But, they have even changed the poster out front to include him amongst Kowalik, Alvarez and Kulish so he is a "legitimate" Billy now. One of the ideas behind adding Tommy full time is so that each Billy can perform twice a week, but as DRSislove pointed out, it changes from week to week. <

Joan Jett started off as Columbia. Ana Gasteyer had a stint as Columbia and was absolutely fantastic. Daphne Rubin-Vega opened the show as Magenta. Bach took over for Riff Raff during the ROCKY RETURNS portion of the show after it closed due to 9/11. Terrence Mann took over for Tom Hewitt opposite Bach's Riff Raff. Luke Perry was great as Brad, actually. Oh, and of course: Alice Ripley was Janet and was wonderful.

How quickly people are forgotten once their shows close and new ones open. Greg Jbara immediately comes to mind. He used to dominate these threads. Easily the nicest performer I have ever met. Incredibly generous and kind.
