Hey "Mitch!" I support all original musicals (we need more of them), so I'll be there!

Also, this is hilarious, please keep posting on here.

Okay, I give them props for that. That is very funny.

...I'm still not paying more than $20 for this show. But that was good.

It's so hard.

I want to root for purely original musicals that don't cast stars.

But, the producer in me knows that this is a waste of everyone's time, talent, and money because this is going to flop in a legendarily hard way.

Is anyone else noticing some...um...low pricing for this on Telecharge?

Wow...Yeah, just saw that...At that price, it's tough to say no.

This has to be a glitch, no?

$16.95 for every seat in the house?

Think they will actually honor these sales?

$17 for balcony? I paid $40 for a premium location orchestra seat and almost (just almost) feel ripped off now.

I missed that it's for orchestra seats too. Now, I actually do feel ripped off, lol.

How on God's green earth is this production planning to have any sort of sustainable financial stability? They have to be making as much money per performance as I would if I walked down 44th Street and picked up spare change on the sidewalk.

If this was planned, shouldn't they have promoted it?

I'm guessing they're not promoting it, because they're promoting sales at higher price points. They still have inventory to move but don't want to cannibalize sales from their existing digital ad campaigns. 

Obviously this wouldn't be sustainable, but I think the only hope the show has of succeeding is positive word of mouth and that's impossible if no one comes to see the show in the first place.

Telecharge is showing $16.95 for all performances through August 17th.  Kinda weird that this promotion (if it even is one) extends a few days past the opening night of August 13th.

If the top ticket price is $169.50, this just seems like bad data entry?

Nope.  Just a desperate act by a desperate man so they don't play to empty houses.

I still have no interest even at $16.95.

Watch me get tickets to this. I think the site is crashing because I can't load it on my phone. Also, it's less than the price to see Infinity War at an AMC theatre with popcorn! Let's just hope or tickets aren't in error and cancelled, haha

They'll never be able to fund a Tony Awards performance at those rates...

Has anyone tried to get that price at the box office?
