If they were true Sondheim fans, they would have spelled his name right.

Very funny, though.

Well of course that's the point though (they aren't true fans).

There was so much lacking in Rose and that's why she had to prove herself through her children. [interviewer]In ways that reminded you of your mom?[/interviewer]. Let's just say the role was very interesting for me. That one was the most interesting [I've ever played]" - Bernadette Peters (2018)

That clip is brilliant. Sadly, I am sure that meltdown has happened in bedrooms all over the five boroughs.

"Yea, I wasn't referring to the attire to camp out for tickets, I was referring to how many of these kids look only film. They are most likely depressed or disenfranchised. They are often overweight, a little slovely, and act age inappropriate."

Then why did you mention something about them hiding in oversized show sweatshirts? I would be doing that as well in the middle of the night, especially if it gets cold.

Sorry Millie, I was actually referring to the act of hiding their bodies in oversized clothes, as if they are not comfortable in their own skin. I wasn't referring to them like camping out in their clothes. Typically folks who don't like their bodies hide it.

Bettyboy, I have to agree with you on a lot of your point, although I do think there might be some blanket statements. But I definitely would be lying if I said I never had similar thoughts about some of the rushers I've seen.
When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad

givesmevoice, my thoughts are a "snapshot" of those intense fans I have encountered and seen online. My thoughts are not generalizable in any way. Just my observations on a small segment of rabid fans for various shows. Thanks for helping me clarify that.

No problem. Like I said, though, I definitely agree with you, judging from my own experiences with rushers.

Bettyboy, I definitely agree with your assessment. I have to say it always makes me chuckle when these kids whine loudly about not being accepted by their peers or being "nerdy". If they devoted maybe a little time to making friends outside the rush line and toward developing a sense of self and some confidence, maybe they wouldn't feel quite so "unpopular" with people who have interests that may be a little less destructive and crazy.

I mean I feel like most of them have trouble coming to grips with the fact that while it's fine and dandy to enjoy theatre, it's not the most popular thing out there . If they were obsessed about a particular sport or team then I am sure that they would get a different reaction from those that they run into in school. But, considered that they are overly into something that is a fringe interest, they become a target for people to ridicule them. And, they are blind to the reason why such actions happen.

It so silly how they do all this to be the number one Alice Ripley fan.

We all know I am the true number 1 Alice Ripley fan...

I read this somewhere, and felt it summed up a lot of what was discussed in this thread. If this is someone from here, I guess I just made an enemy!

"Alice was HILARIOUS because she knew who the entire front row was made up of, she kept shooting us goofy looks and was even more 'electric' than usual. Because of her goofiness, there is some giggling from my friends and I. Oh, and Shannon is on drums (for those who care haha) and he'll be the new drummer starting the 26th :)"

Is anyone else completely weirded out that the fangirls are now obsessed with Alice's husband?

Does anyone know (or could anyone make a guess at) the likelihood of getting lottery tickets for either performance this Sunday? Thanks in advance!

heo1128, I too find it kind of strange that they are now fixated on her husband as well as her.

My birthday wish regarding Next To Normal, is that these annoying fans take a long time with winning the lotto. Just so that I can see their reaction when they don't have their precious Next To Normal fix. I feel like it would be comparable to denying a smoker a cigarette.

The first 10 seats are the front row center orchestra.
The next 4 seats are the side front row orchestra (2 on each side).
The remaining 12 seats are in the boxes (6 in each box).
