LimelightMike said: "Had purchased a ticket for Friday night back in March. Apparently, my order was cancelled without any sort of notification. Row AA Seat 102 of the Orchestra. Apparently that row was removed?.

Have not be refunded. Am I to assume that it has yet to process, or has my seat been reassigned? Anyone with any inkling? Many thanks.

I am presently very upset. Thrilled for the show, but furious over this predicament."


I had also purchased that seat for last night, and upon picking it up at the box office I was told I was relocated, but five rows back, and all the way off to the side. It was fine, but I was pretty frustrated that I wasn't informed. I bought it online, so they clearly had my email, and it really was just terrible customer service.

IMO, far and away, the best new play on Broadway this season. Johnny Lee Miller and Bertie Carvel both should have a Tony Award to add to their mantels for those two towering performances.

reviews seem mixed to positive, with a few raves. Thats enough to sell me on this one. I can't wait!!! The set seems huge so hopefully last row mezzanine at the Friedman isn't too far for this one. Really can't wait for this show.

As an update from earlier: Requested a refund in place of Row B, Seat 117 for tomorrow evening. Redeemed Row AA, Seat 111 of the Dress Circle for a performance next month. Hoping it's worth the Audience Rewards points!

Can anyone who's seen this describe the stage?  The 30 under 35 tickets are either first row orchestra on the very ends or side mezzanine, but I'm not sure how high the stage is or if there would be more benefit to seeing it further back with all of its scenic elements.

I sat in row A seat 5 in the mezzanine, and had an amazing view! The sets are really awesome, and It was a great show! The mezzanine is very small, so there really is not a bad seat in the theater... In total The Samuel J. Friedman Theater holds 622 seats. Hope this helps!

I saw it from the first row orchestra and it was great, they actually removed one row because it had bad sight lines. The stage isn’t super low, but you don’t really miss anything.

I finally got to see this tonight and was thoroughly entertained. I canít understand however, how Carvel got a nomination over Miller. Miller never seemed to leave the stage and I think gave a much stronger performance.

Saw this this afternoon. A good solid production of a creative play with excellent technical elements. I felt the two above title stars were fine, but some of the supporting actors were even stronger.

Itís funny though: in terms of a play about journalistic integrity (or lack thereof), I found the humbler Landscape of a Fact more compelling.
