And one of the best that many others have seen.

Great for MTC. The Friedman seems like an odd house for this, though. Other than Prince of Broadway, I can't remember a true musical in there for a long long time...

I assure you there's zero correlation. Wine and Roses has one of the most godawful score I've ever got exposed to. Poor Brian, poor Kelli. They deserve better.

Utter nonsense.

Tickets just became available for purchase on SeatGeek. 

Is Days of Wine and Roses the early favorite for Best Original Score at the Tonys?

I understand this it won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I can't stop listening to this. One of the most interesting and memorable scores in recent years, for me. 

Why on earth was New York New York nominated??
 Dec 29 2023, 10:24:12 AM

Broadway Flash said: "I don’t like those rules. I would only nominate shows that are worthy, however many that is. If it was a very strong season, and 8 new musicals were worthy, let’s nominate all 8. If it was a weak season and only three musicals were good, then just nominate those three. If they just fill up the slots with mediocrity, it lowers the bar and no longer becomes about excellence."

New code for Days of Wine and Roses: ROSESBB


Works for some dates that the previous code did not.

jbainbr said: "Wait, what code? Did I miss something?"

If you're referring to Days of Wine and Roses, ROSESDM works for certain dates. Unfortunately I'm trying to do the January 13 matinee and it doesn't work for any shows that weekend. The dates that code doesn't work for seem somewhat random... 

SLEEP NO MORE to close in January after 5000 performances

Very glad that I recently went back to Sleep No More for a second time. I adore the piece and will miss it. I hope Punchdrunk finds a new use for the space.

Redeemed Audience Rewards points for a preview performance. The lack of advertising for this show is still baffling to me, I've seen almost nothing about it anywhere."

I saw that there were several options for getting tickets through AR. I'm curious to which option you took and where your seats are located. I thought the number of points required for this show was rather high. Thanks!.

Favorite theatre related podcasts?

Marks & Vincentelli, Stagecraft (Variety's Broadway Podcast), This Week on Broadway, Broadwaysted, The Broadway Cast, and The Play Podcast are all ones I come back to at least somewhat frequently.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Parade just set the house record at the Jacobs...?

And yet it seemed to have him thrown into anything now to be the creative. Like not every fish New Yorker American, Hawaiian, needs to drop a beat in some sort of hip hop meh style. An

Rear mezz has been fine from my experience as far as sight goes, though as a tall person even aisle seats are pretty brutal towards the back.
