The 2020 Broadway revival of WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?  My tickets were for March 13, the day of the shutdown.  Sadly, the production closed during the shutdown.

^^ME TOO UGH

Also regret not seeing the recent revival of Salesman with Philip Seymour Hoffman. I had the opportunity, but I was young and stupid, and didn't take it.

I never got around to seeing the recent revival of the Little Foxes or the off-Broadway Sweeney Todd.

Three Tall Women. I had a ticket for the 2 days before the Tonys, but I was sick, and couldn't make it there before it closed.

I was a freshman in HS during August Osage County. My mother didn’t think it “sounded interesting” and I was too young to go into the city myself

I know there were others where I felt like I could not justify the ticket price and then regretted it.

CHOIR BOY

I had a ticket two different times, but both times ended up in MTA nightmares and I refuse to walk into any show even a tiny bit late.

The Pillowman is the first that came to mind for me, although that was the season I saw my first Broadway show and wasn’t really up on everything so I didn’t know what I missed until afterwards. It’s one of my favorite plays and I’ve never seen a production, but that cast...

Death of a Salesman with PSH. If I knew that it would be his last play, I would have been there every week. That is the only regret I have regarding plays, and boy, it's a big one.
