The world premiere/first preview is this Tuesday, with an official opening on November 19. I'll be seeing the show in mid-November after opening and I'm very excited and curious. Anyone plannig on seeing the early performances before it hits New York in March?

I am very excited too! Howver a little ridiculous that front row center mezz in NY is $250? I think pricing a little steep- going to have to wait until the hype dies down - IF it does!

I'm so excited for this show! Pricing is so steep, but if any of you guys go I'd love if you grabbed me a playbill (I'll gladly purchase it for under $14). I wonder how they'll weave the music into the story line, since most of the movie didn't contain singing. It'll be a treat!

Most of the movie?  Seriously?  The film wasn't a musical.  It doesn't have ANY singing in it.

I mean, it does have a musical number though? Literally the most iconic scene in the film contains singing.

I think they were referencing the Jingle Bell Rock scene when the CD player breaks

I dont tend to like projections, but I actually think that it's a good choice to use them for this show. I'm interested to see how they use them.

The curtain is interesting in a good way. And especially with the three doors. I'm actually a little excited to see how the scenic design works.

The projections were a good choice opposed to a set, it works well for stories set in highschool's. The stage is beautiful!
