I was just looking at tickets, and the first 2 rows in the orchestra are nicely priced at $49. Amex sale is on now.

I just booked two of these $49 tickets in the row BB. I hope the stage isn't too high, I've never been at the Booth theater before.

Pity they won’t be able to do a double bill or package deal with Thoughts of a Colored Man.

I am super excited for this though

This production was one of the best of the 19/20 season... it felt as vital and beautiful today as it did when the work debuted. I'm glad it'll be on Broadway, and curious to see how it'll change with the change in director.

This production has seemingly pushed back it's first preview to April 1st. I originally had tickets for March 26th that were cancelled. Sadly I don't think I'll be able to get the $49 front row seats again which is disappointing.

Correct. Previews start April 1st, opening date April 20th.

Basically pushed back a month. And at least as of right now, it doesn't seem like they're extending the run, to accommodate the delayed start. Closing still set for June 26th.

They haven’t even made a statement yet, but I trust you completely so I’m expecting it next week.

This also now means The Little Prince no longer shares a first preview date with anyone.

FOR COLORED GIRLS... has now delayed previews and opening night by about a month.

As of now, there are only two shows opening in March: LITTLE PRINCE and PLAZA SUITE.

What is taking them so long to announce the cast?

They may not have begun rehearsals yet. Some (if not most) shows as of recently have revealed their cast on first day of rehearsals.

They are not capitalized and there is one "Famous" or " highly recognized" in the cast. If there was a person of note, they would have announced the cast to move the box office.

Is that supposed to say no one? Or there is (1) star in the show?

FWIW –– direct mail for this and a few other plays made it into my mailbox this week (including a shared brochure for The Minutes and American Buffalo, which share a lead producer). I'm gonna guess that most shows are not selling many tix right now for March-April performances. Considering everything with the fall season, it's no surprise that it isn't capitalized...tho that's not a shock for plays in general.

I mean I can’t imagine even in normal times this would be a hot ticket without some names.

That's the thing about this season. Of the fall shows that failed so badly, none of them are the type of show that would have recouped in normal times: Pass Over, Chicken & Biscuits, Dana H/Room, Colored Man, Slave Play, and of course Diana. LEHMAN might have done a bit better in normal times, but that's about it.

I agree but I think it will have consistent, steady sales. Not like $699 prices or anything, but I think many Mothers will want to bring their Daughters to this very beautiful show.

As with most plays that don't have stars, getting love letters from the critics and a Tony win for Best Revival will help (but won't guarantee). Brantley liked the Public Theater revival, but now both he and the director are gone.
