I did the cancellation waitlist today for matinee, arrived at about 12:30 and got a ticket as soon as 12:50, I was second in line, and it was 35$, no fee.

Such a short 2 month run. Will this be moving anywhere?

FYI, for anyone wondering, the cancellation ticket price has been $90 since they entered the extension period. $35 tickets ended at the same time of the original run.

Also received a survey from the Signature about Octet.

CITS after Oklahoma! closes in January?

If that happens, what changes will be made?

I think he's just being sentimental with the closing of his show. I don't think this has a shot on Broadway. But with the lack of original scores next season, I'd love for Dave to win a Tony Award for this.

The only place it could exist on Broadway in would be at CITS.

Maybe this just might be rumors, but I remember someone mentioning on here Malloy is not aiming for Broadway after Great Comet? Maybe it could transfer to another off-B'way theatre or maybe another city? Though it would be nice to see as I just missed this by a few weeks so any transfer would be nice

Was he aiming for Broadway with the Great Comet?! Seems like he just puts them out there, and they find their life...

There’s a casebook at the signature today with the design team of Octet. Is this a common thing for them to do with closed shows, or could they be trying to promote some future life for the show? If so, what could it be??

Correct, he just puts work out and somehow Great Comet wiggled its way to commercial life. But since Comet's catastrophic end, Malloy is rather adamant about his shows not going to Broadway. And I can't imagine this ever transferring, there is absolutely no commercial appeal for any tourist or average ticket buyer to come see this. If it were to have life beyond Signature, it would be some other Off-Broadway, independent tour, or some creative nomadic production. But I don't see how this specific production can move anywhere, as much as I can dream forever. At least the cast recording will capture its miracle!

Check out the Kickstarter page for a message about the email.  They've handled this badly.

Me too.  They should have done this better.  Clumsy in the extreme.

It helps that I’d been listening to an audio boot for the last few months. The difference is obviously striking. Can’t wait to get my physical cd in
