One is scheduled for my April visit and I'm considering going. I'd love any feedback from those of you that have gone could provide!

TIA

Worth it. Go by yourself. Go with friends. Go with a blind date.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

That night was one of my favorite nights in New York. Ever.
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention...I'm the good cop, he's the bad cop.

I am hoping I am not the only one who inappropriately thought "Jerry Orbach's eyes" here.

But yeah, ditto, no question, go! In case you need more convincing-

Is the cast list for the next one up yet? It's on the 24th, right?

Yes, the 24th.

No list yet...as of 2 days ago anyway.

And thanks for the encouragement, to go see...I think I'll head on over after SA that night!

I think it's usually roughly been the weekend before that the cast list is announced- so for example for next week, it should hopefully be the 19th/20th when the list is announced...

Gah... I need to know who is going to be there! I have to decide if I am going to be irresponsible on one of my toughest work weeks of the year and go. I am 90% sure I am going. The cast list should be enough to push me to 100!

Awsome! I've been wanting to see this for awhile and I can't wait until they release the cast list. $20 admission isn't bad at all but does any know if there is a food/dring minimum at the zipper factory?

No food or drink minimum. There is food next door at the tavern and there is a small bar outside of the theatre and a full one at the tavern. There is a walk through between the two. Last month the drinks were BANGING!

The Zipper is an actual theater. It's the one we went to with all the old car seats in it (I don't know if you were atcually with us that day).


I'm really liking the cast list this month. I hope I can go.

Got my tix! I'm seeing SA that night...will it be a big problem to get to the Zipper afterwards? I was planning to SD, but

How big is the place btw? Are all seats great or get I get stuck with a horrible site line if I don't dash right over after curtain?

Any info greatly appreciated.

I also heard Lin Manuel will be a guest...

The doors (well, black curtain to the seating area) doesn't open until about 11:15, get there by then. There's about 200 seats.

It's not that big at all. You should be able to see just fine.
