Any update on vacations? I've seen the show a few times and would love to see Jane Bruce or Laurel Harris as MJ...

Just got out of the matinee. second visit and this show is still fantastic. Scored a SRO ticket. But just gotta say kudos to the cast, all four swings were on, with DeAnne Stewart as a last minute addition. There was a delay in opening the house, and it was for Stewart's track as they were rehearsing certain blocking and Stewart was missing from a few numbers. some shifting of tracks as well with Annelise Baker on as The Mary Jane double in Uninvited.


The audience loved it and tonight is also sold out. Say what you want, this show is a hit.

I saw it in January thought it was kind of meh. I think just focusing the show’s storyline on the mom’s addiction would have provided more than enough content. Also the set was very plain imo.However I did absolutely LOVE Jo’s (Lauren Patten’s) rendition of You Oughta Know. She received a completely deserved standing ovation in the middle of the show. I’ve never seen that happen before.

Elizabeth mentioned in an interview that she has vacation days scheduled in June, didn't specify when exactly.

A+ for you using the correct pronoun.

I would've loved to see Ezra in the role just to see if You Oughta Know gets the same reaction

Technically all 5 swings were on as Yana was on too. I was so confused trying to follow who was on for who as both Kelsey and Annelise were doing  full tracks each and sharing another one.

I was there and yes Ezra got a standing ovation. He also got entrance applause at the end of the opening number.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe all swings were on Tuesday night as well. Yana is temporarily in Norah's track until she returns. She's listed in the playbill as Pharmacist/Therapist now yet still listed as a swing. Interesting about DeAnne Stewart, she was only hired as a temp. swing but will be permanent and remain as an "offstage swing".

Nora came back on Tuesday. Yeman and Yana were on in Ezra's track as he was Jo. Kelsey was on for Laurel. Zach and Deanne were not on. Yana is leaving on March 1st so Deanne is permanently replacing her as swing.

Has anyone got the side partial view orchestra seats that are being used for rush? Did you miss much action? Looking for cheap seats...

I was in far left H23 seat when I saw it. I didn't miss any action because everything takes place in the center of the stage. For the price I think it's worth it,  but yeah, you will watch from the side. I think if I sat in a closer row (also partial view seats) it would be better. I initially had C14 seat but had to exchange for a different date and took what was available.

Taking my sis in law as she is a big Alanis fan. Looking to get in on the discount tickets. Our choices are row q on the left in the orchestra or row f centre mezz. Curious for input from those who have seen it.

I'm with Jordan, go for Mezz. Row Q has the Mezz overhang which feels like the stage is cut off.

I sat side Mezz (row D) and it felt super wide open...center mezz will be even better. And since you're basically seeing a concert, you'll get more of a wow factor.

Also take a look at SeatPlan- https://seatplan.com/new-york/broadhurst-theatre/ to see actual pics from the seats.

I saw Ken last night - thought he was excellent, though it was my first time seeing the show. Wouldn’t have guessed it was his debut!

Would love to see DeAnne's Frankie, especially since I thought Celia was the weakest cast member out of the six leads/supporting actors.

I keep hearing this but the 4x I've seen the show between Cambridge and NY, Celia has been wonderful.
