Interwesting.  I just got my eticket for cort this morning.  

They've updated the theatre name on telecharge, but took tickets offline.

The Telecharge app gives you this message: 

"NETWORK is moving to the BELASCO THEATRE. Performances will start as scheduled on Nov. 10. If you purchase tickets on this page, you will be seated in comparable seats at the BELASCO, at the same price.

We're in the process of moving performance dates over to the new venue. Click here to view more available dates on the NETWORK page. If a performance date is not visible on either page, please check back in a couple of hours."

I bought tickets last week, and I assume they'll be the same seats; nothing in my order has changed yet.

jas1234 posted about Tatiana joining the cast in the Network thread a couple weeks ago, and I didn't even realize it wasn't official until now. NETWORK is Officially Moving from the Cort to the Belasco (I'm thrilled about it.) He also said Jimmy Smits is on board; I wonder if that announcement is coming soon.

Michelle Dockery played the role in London; I'm assuming she's tied up with the Downton Abbey movie filming as that just started.

You just proved exactly what I said on Friday P.M. of Labor Day weekend when the announcement was made: that if you want to bury some news, release it late Friday on a holiday weekend. NETWORK is Officially Moving from the Cort to the Belasco

At least we know Davenport did ONE thing right.

Just curious, how many more seats are there in the Belasco than the Cort?

The Belasco has fewer seats than the Cort.

Well, it's in a state of disrepair right now, and it's in probably the worst location for a Broadway theater (hardly any regular foot traffic from theatergoers). I feel like opening at the Cort is like drawing the short straw.

True but the Belasco has more better seats and in particular the entire differential in number of seats are in the balcony. More is not always more desirable, especially for a show where managing demand is where it's at. (Stated differently, you can't get premium prices for those balcony seats. )

I much prefer the Belasco, but I'd say, despite its flaws, the Court has had a ton of hits.

Anyone know when they'll have the seating and dates changed over? Telecharge is slacking right now.

Telecharge is always slacking in the technology department. They're a joke.

Almost 24 hours after the theatre change announcement, and they have 4 dates transferred. I picture a bunch of people at the Telecharge office with pens and paper, manually assigning new seats. Ridiculous.

Tomorrow begins the AR pre-sale. I'm going to be so pissed if I get shut-out of booking a seat 'cause they haven't updated through March... NETWORK is Officially Moving from the Cort to the Belasco

I'd hope they'd have everything switched over by tomorrow, but if not and you really want to buy tickets as soon as possible, you can still book tickets for the performances that haven't been transferred over yet (use the link below or just make sure you select Network at the Cort Theatre from Telecharge's menu). When you go to buy the tickets, a message will come up (which I posted earlier in the thread) saying that you'll be moved to comparable seats in the Belasco.

Thanks for this, I am trying to see what's going to be available tomorrow by playing around with the site and pretending I am going to buy with an AmEx but the website is just crapping itself badly.

Hopefully it's better tomorrow :)

The Cort seating chart had Row BB listed as front row, and now, the Belasco - which also has an additional row - simply has A listed.

 

So confusing.

We're dealing with Telecharge here so yes, there are going to be glitches. Even when there aren't glitches there are glitches.

The last five times I bought tickets there were problems. Eventually... eventually... I ended up getting tickets. But, not the specific ones I tried to secure online. Those always disappeared and I had to choose others over the phone. Disappointing, frustrating to say the least. I can only imagine how sales will go in the next few days.
