I was at the invited dress tonight.  Not sure what the etiquette is as far as commenting on a dress rehearsal, but I will say that I was largely quite impressed by what I saw.

I am going Tuesday evening, and I beyond excited. This is definitely one of my most anticipated shows of the season.

I think the etiquette seems to be if you have good things to say, feel free to speak loudly and free. If you have criticism wait until at least the first public paid performance haha.

The show posted a picture at 9am of their rush line. Looks like it's about 20+ deep already.

I think it'll be exciting to hear from someone going in totally blind!

Planning to grab rush tickets and go tomorrow night! Company is one of my favorite shows and this will be the first time I get to sit and enjoy a professional production (that I'm not working on) so I'm VERY excited.

Does anyone know someone who got a rush ticket for tonight? I wonder how long the line got and how many people actually got tickets.

Excited to hear everyone's thoughts on this (and see any photos of merchandise - those shirt designs on Instagram looked great!) Seeing it in two weeks and counting the days.

I wasn't there but looked on IG and people said they were only giving out singles. Person who was 15th in line didn't get a ticket, not sure when it cut off before it got to her.

I can get a picture of whatever merch is there, if you'd like!

Nikki Renee Daniels is in fact covering Bobbie! That's something I'd love to see.

First look at the merch and there's no window card yet. There's a production rep handing out stickers in line to get into the theater in honor of first preview and they're filming the audience entering and within the theater tonight. There's a media release sign posted on the entrance.

There's a photo booth with balloons on the second floor. Can't wait for the show!

I agree. It’s very nice to see Nikki Renee Daniels IS covering Bobbie. Anisha Nagarajan is indeed the only Joanne cover, unless they’ve hired an uncredited standby.
