2023-2024 Broadway Season
 May 17 2024, 07:06:43 PM

Does anyone know why the page on here for Suffs lists it as a limited run? I've seen no mention anywhere else (including the show's official website) of that being the case, or an end date if it is? (Which I hope it's not, as it's my top show to see currently and I'm not local and have not yet made specific plans). I looked at BWW pages of a couple other shows from this season and they were listed as open-ended.

Your Single Favorite 2024 Tony Nomination
 Apr 30 2024, 11:14:22 PM

I have not (yet) seen any of the nominated shows (the most recent show I saw/only one I've seen so far from this season was How To Dance In Ohio closing weekend) but I'm absolutely thrilled for Suffs, especially for Shaina Taub. She's from my state (Vermont) and performed in a few shows as a child/teen with the community theatre group I now volunteer with, as well as having attended the high school where I've had a choir rehearsal and performance, so I feel a bit of a personal

I live in Vermont which is where Shaina Taub grew up and I was very excited to see this great article and front page feature that just came out in this week's local paper:

Coincidentally I was actually just where she went to high school for a choir rehearsal on Monday. Also volunteer with the local theatre company that she did a few shows with as a kid/young teenager.

I'm over the moon for Hadestown as it's one of my all-time favorites. My family just bought a membership this year for the first time ever to get early access to tickets when they go on sale. It'll

I went last year and really enjoyed it, although I did get a half off ticket thanks to the Broadway Week promo. Hoping to go back this summer with my friend who has never been and to check out some of the new stuff they've put out since. Great place in my opinion, although I do feel it's a tad overpriced.

Where did you see that it was closing?

You didn't see it anywhere because it hasn't been announced.

Seriously, I don't understand what's so hard about not posting online sounding so definitive about a show's closing date until the show itself officially a

Robbie2 said: "HARMONY Feb 4 and Ohio will be announcing soon and hear will close after 2for1 week as well."

I'm taking the second part of that announcement with a grain of salt until I hear something more official but are we interpreting Ohio's closing "after 2 for 1 week" to mean Feb 4 (the date the 2-for-1 week sale ends on) or just sometime soon after 2-for-1 week, like mid-late February?

Broadway Grosses: Week Ending 1/7/24

BoringBoredBoard40 said: "Ohio has about 4-5 weeks left."

If you account for the fact that Ohio had to cancel a performance this past week, they aren't doing terribly. (Made about as much in a 7-performance week as they were in an 8-performance week pre-Christmas). Yes, numbers are concerning, but maybe not quite as dire as they were.

I just booked accommodations for the first weekend in March to go see it, so I'm really crossing my fingers it'll h

My parents got the 3 of us tickets (upcoming, dates TBD) to How To Dance In Ohio for Christmas. Really, really hope they can hold out for a while (I'm autistic so eager to see the representation) but I would be lying if I said the numbers didn't worry me...

Also, for anyone saying Hadestown, they've been in $700,000+ range, give or take, with capacity in the 90s, average ticket price around $100. Granted, I don't know what the operating costs are, but I think that (for

From things I heard from people who saw the show more than once, her performance got stronger and significantly improved over time. I heard from multiple people via various sources who said things along the lines of “She was good the first time but she was AMAZING the second time”. So I can’t help but wonder if the outcome would’ve been differ

Can you keep your eyes peeled for rare/special edition but affordable Come From Away and/or Hadestown stuff? Willing to pay up to $30-$40 for a single item or less plus shipping.

 Sep 30 2023, 06:18:42 PM

If anyone going would be so kind/generous as to keep their eyes peeled for any unusual/rare (but reasonably priced - say $30 -$40ish or less) Come From Away and/or Hadestown items I would be very grateful! In particular if they have the Hadestown t-shirts with the 2021 September reopening date (size small or medium ideally) and re-opening and/or closing cast signed CFA playbills, and/or the pride one with the longest-running show sticker and/or button. Will gladly reimburse you for whatever i

The Shubert Theater already has a new tenant lined up
 Sep 30 2023, 10:45:50 AM

Not denying anything said here, but if Hell’s Kitchen hasn’t even opened at the Public yet, isn’t it a bit early to know if it’ll even transfer at all? Let alone that soon and already have a theatre lined up? 

I for one am predicting Suffs at the Shubert.
