I'm holding out for this to (hopefully) show up on TDF... Very excited for this one, though!
Seeing it on Wednesday, and I just received a "Late Seating Policy" email. The show is expected to run 90 minutes, with no intermission.
Have a great time and please let us know what you think. I've never read Titus Andronicus so am curious whether that's needed in order to understand the story more.
I'm really interested to hear how people like the show, too - it sounds pretty unique. I hope you enjoy it, @CT2NYC!
Looking forward to seeing this in April and glad to hear it's a one-acter. I'm seeing Lear a couple of days before and that sounds like an endurance test so far from the early posts. (I assume it will end in time for me to make it to Gary, haha.)
http://www.playbill.com/article/julie-white-joins-broadways-gary-as-andrea-martin-withdraws-first-performance-delayedWow. Andrea has withdrawn due to an injury. I know Julie is amazing but this is quite disappointing. Performances will begin March 9 now. Kristine Nielsen will play Andrea’s role and Julie will take over for Kristine.
LesWickedly, if you had read the article that you posted you would see that nothing "went down.""Martin bows out on doctors' orders after breaking four ribs while in rehearsal. "I am heartbroken to have to leave the production and have tried to convince the doctor that my funny bone is stronger than my broken ribs," she said in a statement. "I love everyone involved in this beautiful play and will miss them profoundly. I will be cheering them on from the audience at the Booth Theatre."No drama, but it is disappointing that Martin won't be a part of this. Maybe if it's well recieved it'll extend and Martin will be able to step back in.
Right before your posted that, I had updated it to change it.
Little upsetting Martin won't be involved, hope she is okay though. Broken ribs can be painful. Hope she fully recovers!
Well I had tickets for this tomorrow night. But I’ll be gone by the 9th, will telecharge give me a refund?
Yikes!! Wishing Andrea a quick and easy recovery! But having Julie White take over is incredible. The good news and the bad news almost balance each other out.

How awful. 4 broken ribs sounds miserable. I hope Martin can recover quickly!Just to repeat what the articles say: NIELSEN is now moving up into the MARTIN role (Janice). WHITE will play Carol, the role that NIELSEN was initially playing.

I broke the news to the person I was talking to, she had to go verify I was telling the truth.I already have a return trip in July, guess I’ll throw this on there
Aw no. Wishing her a speedy recovery!
JBroadway said: "I agree with Kad! This strikes me as a very lateral casting change. Martin, White, and Nielson are all equally wonderful in my eyes. Of course I’m sad to hear that Martin is injured, but from an audience standpoint I don’t think we’re getting shortchanged!"That, and Lane's selling 95% of the tickets. Andrea Martin is slightly better-known Kristine Nielsen and Julie White, but no show is selling out on Andrea alone. (Not a knock on her talents in any way, just the reality.)If Lane had been injured, they probably would have just cancelled/postponed the production altogether, rather than replace him with a lesser talent (aka anyone) and have a refund nightmare.
Still excited for this and I hope it turns out to be as great as we're all hoping!
Given all of the talents involved, I have a feeling this will be excellent
