If it were to still happen on the newly rescheduled dates, the recent article linked below with a quote from Hilary Duff about filming Younger has me doubting whether Sutton will be in Music Man. I know I’m in the minority, but seeing Sutton live was the reason I initially bought tickets; Jackman was just a bonus. So I’m glad I decided to get a refund and take a wait and see approach.

"The latest date I've heard was March 2021 to start shooting again, so at least we have a date, and they're still planning on it," Duff said.

The only reason I'm going is for Sutton Foster, I couldn't care less about seeing Hugh. I think I will wait until his vacation is scheduled so I can pay like 75% less that week. This seems so far away, hard to get excited about it.

"

I've had conversations with a few people involved with the TV show and they have no idea what's going to happen;  they're (obviously) hoping to start shooting again no later than March, but they've also been told they'd love to start shooting as soon as a month or two from now.  So I actually don't think Younger will wind up being a conflict with The Music Man, for the following reason:  if things are improving fast enough to begin rehearsals in February for a live stage production, then with film and television posing far less risk than a big Broadway musical in a tightly packed theater, the TV production of Younger will have been able to finish production by then... but conversely, if TV isn't safe to start shooting again before next March, 8 months from now, then it certainly won't be possible for Broadway theater to return by then either.  

Long story short, as everyone keeps saying, nobody knows anything.  But don't forget that when they  announced Broadway would officially be closed until January, which was only a month ago, that was before the resurgence of the virus, the many new outbreaks, and the alarmingly rapidly rising case numbers.  Things are now so much worse, and it's only 3 or 4 weeks later.  Barring a vaccine, or (even less likely under this administration) the entire country shutting down to contain the current shocking spread, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think a spring re-opening for Broadway is extremely unlikely.

Tickets are open for sale once again.

I got a pop up months ago when was looking at tickets that told me that general sales would reopen like July 27th or 28th, which was easy to remember cus my Birthday is tomorrow and I thought "Wow right before my Birthday."

So yeah! Tickets are still pricey but there are now a sprinkling of $99 seats back open upstairs for some shows. I actually got them for my birthday NEXT year and they really are not that bad. And I feel like I looked previously at seats that were worse then these that were twice the price. So snag the $99 seats while you can before they mark them up again.

Out of curiosity, I checked the date I have tickets for (I'm one of the people who had a post-opening show that is now a preview). I had bought a $287 ticket for a Saturday evening (and a $99 ticket for the same Saturday's matinee). The seat next to me (closer to center) is currently available for $499. I cannot imagine a scenario in which two seats right next to each other are so drastically different in view as to justify a $200+ price difference. That is insane to me.

It’s so weird to be talking about buying tickets again. Yesterday I bought tickets for 6 performances in London next April, a week after my new tickets for this show. Before hitting the “pay” button, my heart started to beat fast and I sat there just staring at the screen for the longest time before clicking it. It felt so weird to do something that used to be so normal and of course there’s no guarantee any of these will actually happen.

I feel this. I definitely hesitated on getting them since service fees are not refunded. I am already out a lot on cancelled tickets from service fees alone from the last few months and the next few. I could buy a whole other ticket from that money alone. But $99 is not a chance I am likely to see again. And if the show gets moved again, I'm now *in* for a reschedule should it happen again so you know... only gonna be out the money if the run is totally cancelled, right? RIGHT?! *Nervously laughs*

lol yeah. I bought the insurance for all these tickets (something I’ve never really done before) but piece of mind for an extra £10 each was very worth it to me.

Telecharge always refunds the service fees.

Yeeeeeeah but Ticketmaster doesn't/didn't on what I had tickets for previously >.< How I wish all Broadway would switch to Telecharge. I hate having to use Ticketmaster.

So weird... my Ticketmaster charges have always been refunded in full, including fees, for canceled concerts etc. in the past, and for some C19-related cancellations this past April.

To me it's not much more insane to the row behind the premium seats. Is sitting 3 feet further back really $200-$300 worse? Of course not, that's why that row gets snapped up so quick. I sat fairly close to the stage for West Side Story and the seat immediately behind me was almost twice the cost.

It’s been discussed, but to reiterate about Sutton. My boyfriend is on the crew of Younger. They have been given absolutely no word of when they’re returning to work. We can only surmise the earliest start date could be the last week of March, when they were originally going to resume shooting in 2020. Still, just guessing here and have no idea what that means for Sutton’s future with Music Man.
