Lyrically, I'm trying to work out how "Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through" fits the scene to which it's assigned.
To share without delving into too much spoilerific detail for others in this thread, it's very... funereal in purpose. Make of that what you will based on the summary you're reading, and PM me if that's not clear enough.

No, it's started by a supporting lead named Jagwire and picked up by the ensemble. Strat's a little too grief-stricken to sing at that moment.
I had heard from a friend that the producers have been tinkering with the ticket prices to see if they can get more traction and that the obstructed view situation early on was more about getting people to buy more expensive seats. I do not know if there is any truth in this but the information was interesting none the less.

My biggest is re the set...will it be the original, scaled down or even a hybrid set for later touring?As mentioned earlier, I'm attending 8/19."I'm attending 8/10, but haven't seen any previous productions so will have nothing to compare it to.
V2David said: "A bunch of seats have now either sold or been taken off the website. Maybe producers are holding back tickets to make it look like show is more in demand?"Wow, you weren't kidding. I looked yesterday at availability for the performance I'll be seeing and there had been very little change from when I bought my tickets several weeks ago. I just looked again, and I'd estimate that availability has dropped by about 45-50% from yesterday.
Geez. How does this type of scenario, usually, work out? The seats appear at a later date?I had my eye on seats, but didn't get the opportunity to buy them yet. Since every time I looked they were still there, I wasn't sweating it. Now should I?
My advice, though I admittedly could be wrong, is not to sweat. Sales have been absolutely in the toilet so far.
I would wait for the deals. I made the mistake of buying front row balcony seats when they first went on sale. I should have waited. Recently I bought orchestra tickets to a second show thru Audience Rewards for pretty much the same price as what I paid for those balcony seats plus 250 points. Looks like all the tickets on Audience Rewards are now sold out. My concern isn't that the shows will sell out. My concern is that they may decide to scrap this entire run if tickets sales don't improve.
I know the producers have a reputation for pulling out but have they ever done it this late in the game?
I received an email yesterday from Broadway Direct with a coupon code. They also have an offer up on Audience Rewards to earn 500 bonus points. That's pretty much all I've seen so far.
Yes. They cancelled the US Tour in October a few days before it was supposed to begin.The tour had technically started, and had played 3 weeks in Toronto before being cancelled.
I guess it will all come down to the wire. I hope City Center got a large non refundable deposit.

RippedMan said: "I have friends in the show and just haven’t seen much of anything." Are your friends worried about the run being cut short? How much does the producer have to recoup to make money?
