Bernadette @ Carnegie Hall - can anyone see how well sold?
 May 18 2024, 09:46:08 AM

Obviously selling very well.  Got mine when the first subscription series went on sale, along with Jinx Monsoon and Pink Martini. Now that the new "Pick your Own 4" subscriptions are onsale, most of the front half of the floor seats are gone.  But...............

We can assume that there is some inventory being held back for single ticket presales and general public onsales.  Exactly how many and what locations is anyone's guess, but most venues do

HERE WE ARE heads to the recording studio

judging by a track length of 5 minutes and 24 seconds, I'm BEYOND GRATEFUL that most everyone's favorite scene (titled Interlude 3: Snow) appears to be preserved.  So perfect since it's the heart and soul of the piece <3 <3 <3

Having seen Bebe in various shows, I am sure she will win instead of Lindsay even though I haven't seen the current version of Cabaret. I was going to get tickets to Cabaret because I really liked the show whenAlan Cumming was in it but the promos for the current version changed my mind. Thanks again."

To echo everyone else, Merrily is most definitely THE show to see.  To quote the NT rev

CABARET at the Kit Kat Club (2024) Opening Night Critics' Reviews
 May 9 2024, 06:34:04 PM

Over-hyped and way over-priced.........

The pre-show at Moulin Rouge, and the atmospheric 'club' environment at Here Lies Love were done significantly better.   I was simply left feeling  "been there, done that, and it was far better back then."

Sell your neighbor's outdoor furniture on eBay to finance an additional trip in late June/early July just to see "Oh, Mary!".  You'll be very glad you did

happy that Here Lies Love wasn't completely forgotten, but overlooking Conrad Ricamora in favor of Roger Bart in BTTF????!!!?  Hopefully, he'll be nominated next year for "Oh, Mary!"

not really a fair comparison -- ASL announced it's closing shortly after winning the Tony, while KA ran nearly a full year after winning (and most likely wouldn't have lasted that long had it NOT won best musical, no matter how much I loved
