And today it was reported that Waitress was in the top 10 of movies seen this past weekend. That’s pretty impressive.

I have tickets to a showing tomorrow and suspect that it will start more or less on time as opposed to having ~20 minutes of ads and previews beforehand like a normal movie but wanted to check to confirm. I was considering trying to see another movie beforehand but not sure I’ll have enough time."

I guess it depends on the theater. We saw it at Union Square in NYC and it started a full half

This solves the Ryan Vasquez dilemma!

I can’t think of many who would successfully portray the elder Noah with the same sweetness as John Beasley but I’m very happy with Dorian Harewood.

Hailee has been back for a little over a week with a slightly modified schedule  


Esparza out of Oliver! on 5/7 7PM show......
 May 10 2023, 08:07:12 AM

I was there Tuesday night and we had the same announcement at the start of the show that Gavin just had a few hours put in rehearsal snd here he is. There was no indication thst this was his second standby show. There were two others out as well as noted in the insert..Mrs Sowersby and one make ensemble 

I love Raoul..hope he’s ok…but it’s clearly impossible to think that Gavin was not perfect for the role

There are two signs - one on each side of the ticket windows..But there are also some TKTS employees talking to the people on line "helping" them decide what to see. A few of them are like bizarre...I have yet to figure out why you would recommend Kimberly Akimbo to an older non-american couple who barely spoke English and had no clue what it was about. This would not have been my first recommendation fo them... even though I personally loved it.

I didn’t hear anything to the effect but oh gosh I really hope they did. I know getting tickets was near impossible for people who didn’t have them (myself included) for the original 2020 date, and I’d love for more people to be able to see this event.

"Peter was a little overlooked the first time around with Brian and Audra  He really quietly carries much of the show imo too

IMO..a big reason why they did not WIN the Tony.

If I had one thing I was not crazy about, it was the way they did "When I Grow Up". That song just rips my heart out! Cried during it both times I saw the Musical on Broadway. I was kind of hoping they would incorporate the swings. Maybe switch from kids to adults and back swinging on them. (Just what I envisioned)

Yes the swings should have been incor

Netflix's MATILDA: THE MOVIE MUSICAL - News & Discussion Thread

OK I know this is a minuscule questions. I know there is a new song for the finale but please someone tell; me if Matllda and Ms Honey cartwheel off into the sunset as they did on stage. I am not sure if would work the same way on film but it was one of my favorite moments of the musical on stage. Thanks in advance.

Cast Replacements
 Dec 6 2022, 12:51:19 AM

I was working the early shift (I'm an usher there) so I only saw a small portion tonight and I was pretty busy with a full house and late seating, etc.  They seemed very new, confident, excited and enthusiastic. I'm probably not the best person to ask, having the seen the OG's (I am estimating) almost 400 times since Feb 2020 pre and post shutdown. I think I will need to see the newbies more to get a real perspective.

Tonight crowd is very enthusiastic as well but less wild. I don’t ever remember seeing a show before  where the entire cast is replaced at one moment.

I believe SiX has always replaced the entire cast at one time with the original London Co. 

ITW to perform on THE VIEW Oct 31

Fun that Sebastian Arcelus was on as The Baker in spite of the fact that he’s left the show. I’m wondering if this was pre-taped before he left or he just came back because Br

Has anyone tried the Six digital lotto lately? I'm a bit says it closes at 6pm the day before, and winners will have up to 60 mins to claim tickets if they win...but it doesn't say when the actual drawing is! If anyone could shed some light on this, that'd be great :)

As well, could anyone let me know where seating locations have been lately? I hate heights so...just hoping for orch, but the show is selling

Bre killed her solo and I can only imagine what she would’ve done the rest of the show. I hope she gets well soon if she’s hurt or ill!"

I don’t know the answer but I would imagine it takes a while to get into costume and makeup if Nicole had no hint that she m

Nolan LuPone said: "I’ve been watching a recording of Six on YouTube and I can’t get over how fricking obnoxious the crowd is. Lots of unnecessary whooping and screaming. I kinda wanted to see the show, but now maybe not. Is the audience at Six always like this?"

No, I’m an usher there. For the most part audience cheer at clap at appropriate times, and rarely in the middle of a song. I think matinees are a bit quieter but with more inappropriate noi

NYC Renews Indoor Mask Advisory
 Jul 8 2022, 06:18:14 PM

Yes and we ushers and front of house people get to be the guinea pigs.    Fun times!

Forget there is no longer a mask requirement for patrons.  On Wednesday an audience member decided her seat was a good place to floss her teeth.
