Just a reminder, Sing Street releases $40 tickets through (I believe) previews. Only balcony, so not particularly worth it but if you need a cheap way and don’t have TDF, you’re welcome. :P

Damn.....I was hoping for an ACTUAL bargain.  (I hate the balcony at the Lyceum)

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Well based on the ticket sales right now, I'd say it's a good bet it will be on TKTS.

If you buy a $40 balcony ticket to an early preview, you may just get moved closer anyway. SING STREET Will Transfer To Broadway

Did anyone grab one of the AR tickets for dress rehearsal on March 25?

They’ve also lowered the price from 1kpts+$78 to 1kpts+$60.

There's also a Telecharge Offers code for orchestra and mezzanine seats, if you don't want to sit in the balcony.  Just bought tickets for April and am looking forward to it.

Someone asked me about the film, and I told them "there was to be a stage show" and when I checked the official website for the stage show, I saw that there is a cast album.  When did they record it? When did they release it?  (I have not listened yet)

The cast recording was supposed to be released 3/26 to coincide with the first broadway preview. That didn't happen.

I'm not sure when they recorded it but the album is only available for pre-order with a few songs available now. If there are no delays the full album will be available digitally April 17th and the CD on May 15th.

"At a Shubert Theater to be announced" so I guess they lost the Lyceum, which they had already started tech in...Damn this business is rough.

Honestly though, they might get the last laugh if the shutdown extends past Spring 2021, which many in the industry are whispering about as likely.

Curious about the Lyceum too—perhaps they are just hedging their bets for a more desirable theatre? It was the only one available at the time.

I confess that I don't know how these business operations work, so anything I'm about to say may very well be wrong.

But is it possible that this is a strategic move that benefits the producers? If they stayed in the Lyceum, wouldn't they have to keep paying rent there for a full year or more? By giving up the Lyceum, and moving the set out of the space (presumably), they no longer have to pay rent, right? Now they have more flexibility, and they aren't hemorrhaging money with every passing week. Moving the set into the storage won't be cheap, but it seems cheaper than the alternative.

Just hoping they do work a lot on the show. Compared to the film, this is such a "meh" adaptation bound to bomb on Broadway.

Here's hoping Sing Street can find a new venue- the cast album is an infectiously fun listen! 

Of course, this doesn't give any indication (yet) as to how much of next year Broadway will be shut down. Nobody can even guess what survives/opens/closes at this point- there's a 50-50 chance next spring's new offerings will even open on time as of right now. 

At the very least, this news gives Enda Walsh lots of time to fix any/more book problems from the NYTW production. Way to go Sing Street for being proactive, grabbing the wheel, and owning it.

The show needed far more than the few weeks turnaround it was originally scheduled to have between NYTW and Broadway to fix its substantial book and production problems, so... fingers crossed they actually do. I'm frankly surprised they haven't just thrown in the towel, because this thing was far, far from a sure bet earlier in the year when conditions for Broadway were very good.
"...everyone finally shut up, and the audience could enjoy the beginning of the Anatevka Pogram in peace."

I think Sing Street will actually do much better after this pandemic than it would've done had COVID never happened. First and foremost, the show is mostly about using escapism to cope with problems in life. Not only will there be major relevance in the theme, I anticipate the escapism songs to have a similar effect to what Mamma Mia did after 9/11. People will want positive energy in the theatre, and this show has buckets. And additionally, a bit of depth beyond the escapism to give it substantial weight.

The show will also have had 1-2 years of development since it ran at NYTW. Prior to NYTW, I think the very first workshop was only 8 weeks before first preview? I remember reading something about first workshops being in September 2019 and I remember feeling shocked about its rapid development. I think it explains why many of us felt that the show at NYTW was messy and not ready for Broadway. But the team has learned a lot, and I have a lot of faith that they'll be able to master the creation of the piece by the time it opens.

They also already have the cast recording on the market, and with the right marketing and publicity they could really use that over the next 1-2 years to gain a lot of traction and fan support. Word of mouth would be quite easy to do on social media with the cast album, and most of the songs won't be changing anyways.

So really, I think Sing Street is in the best position of all new shows for keeping their Broadway trajectory and holding on. I anticipate people flocking in mass crowds to it when this is all over. People will want to see theatre, and people will want to see something fun with a lot of energy. And this is the show.

Like the post-9/11 world, I think B'way will see a small group of new, feel-good shows that gain lots of traction, potentially resulting in lengthy runs. I would say '01 was The ProducersMamma Mia!, and 42nd Street. I won't be surprised if the post-COVID era is dominated by The Music ManCompanySix, and Mrs. Doubtfire. I won't count Sing Street out though- this could easily be the kind of show that gains a passionate cult following, and quickly.
