As mentioned on countless other threads: no. No he doesn’t.

Just a simple no (and if you'd like, a redirection to the actual thread(s)) is suffice.

Was talking with a coworker the other day about this board, and she told me that she is hesitant to ask questions because she doesn't want to ask a "redundant" or "dumb" question.

Sorry but you’re asking people to go use the search function to look up what you could have looked up and then post the link to the thread that they found, so you don’t have to do that?

Yes and no.  It's very very sporadic.

I'll give the OP the benefit of the doubt since the Search function here has been pretty terrible of late (and I've been burned by it myself). But it does look like they fixed it (for the moment). I searched for "Beetlejuice" and the first thing to come up was the last Beetlejuice stage door thread from three days ago.

Just to clarify my response was to BdwayLife, not the OP.

He used to regularly. I met him at the stage door after the last preview before opening night. From what I’ve heard, he only comes out sometimes now since that whole stage door threat he got last year.

Actually, I was very intentional in saying "if you'd like." I did not "ask" people to find the thread(s) for the OP. :)

Alex Brightman tweeted they've had 25 consecutive sellouts. If their advance is strong enough in the winter, the producers have to be looking to move the show to another theater.
A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

I'm sorry for diverting the conversation, but I don't want to start a new thread solely to ask this question. I'm planning on getting a ticket to the show today, but would love some advice. What would you say is the best seat....mezz, far left, D9 or orchestra far right (like all the way to the side, maybe row D?).

For Beetlejuice I think the best seats are center orch or center mezz. Both seats you mentioned seem to be partial view but maybe the mezz one is full-view? If they're both the same price, I'd go with whichever one is full-view.

Agreed with Wick3. I saw it from last row of the orchestra, but in the orchestra right section just 3 seats off the aisle. It was a fantastic seat for the price, so I'd suggest getting as close to center as you can. I had friends who sat in second row orchestra left, but they were on the aisle. They said they wouldn't have wanted to be any further off to the side, but their seats were actually a really good view. If you're thinking about the mezz, STAY AWAY from the extreme sides. The speakers block most of the action. Seriously, just pay the money to be closer to center, you'll really appreciate it.

Ahh this is super helpful!! I think I'll go with the side orchestra. I was looking at E22? Thoughts? That's the right side of the orchestra.

Whoa. Chill haha. It's just a seating question. They also mentioned their friends in the orchestra so I was just asking. That's all.

I would check the website “A View From My Seat” for the answer to that.

Three straight weeks of sold-out shows, grossing over 2 million during Christmas week. Seven straight weeks of grossing over $1 million/week. I hope they can keep it up through the winter around the $1 million/week. If so, the producers are likely to try and move the show.

Magictodo123,  When I saw it, I was on the side, kind of in the middle of the row.  There were still a few things I did not see  (very minor)  that I ended up seeing in clips.  For most people, it would not have bothered, but I am the type that does not want to miss anything.  So if you are going for the side, get as close to the aisle as you can.  If not, some scenes will be obstructed.

A few theaters typically open up after the Tonys, we just don't know what they are yet. But if a show is struggling, and a $1M weekly show wants to move in... one imagines the same shenanigans that found them homeless could find a roof over their heads.
