Broadway Grosses: Week Ending 6/2/24
 Jun 4 2024, 02:07:53 PM

If anyone was wondering about the dip at Uncle Vanya- Steve Carell was out for five performances this past week and LCT offered refunds or exchanges. I went to the show Saturday night and it was around half full. The Vanya understudy, Robert Stanton, was very good.

Thanks. :)

My lotto seats about two weeks ago were Orchestra Row D Seats 11 and 13. As the previous poster indicated these were partial view, but honestly I don't think we missed much. Just whenever someone was going in or out of the front door of the house.

Maybe it was a mix of both. They literally used the melody of Sondheim’s “Beautiful Girls.”

I should've been a little more specific. A lot of the blocking was taken from the movie: the quasi conga line, the highlighting of individual boys, and the overhead shot at the end.

What’s going on at Second Stage?

Lincoln Center also hasn't announced anything and MTC hasn't announced their Winter show (which usually has similar dates to 2nd Stage's first show of the season)."

MTC's winter show is Eureka Day

No, Eureka Day is Fall and Old Friends is Spring. For Broadway, MTC usually has a Fall show that runs from September-November, a Winter show that runs from December-February/March, and then a Spring Show that runs March/April-June (or I suppose beyond if there's demand).

It doesn't have a season listed, but MTC's subscription page confirms that they have a third unannounced Broadway show:

MTC is not doing a fall Broadway show, or at least not one at the Friedman. They're doing some capital projects (HVAC, fire alarm, lighting upgrades) at the Friedman that are going to go into the fall. Eureka Day isn't starting previews until late November.

Rialto Chatter: Will OH, MARY! and JOB Transfer to Broadway?
 Apr 11 2024, 10:51:38 AM

A friend is a co-producer on the transfer of OH, MARY! and earlier this week I was told that the plan is for a 12 week run starting in June. I had assumed (and didn't ask to confirm) it would go into the Booth, but that timeline doesn't seem to work with THE ROOMMATE getting announced this morning. I'd guess the Lyceum now, but Studio 54 could also be a possibility?

Six Rush or Lottery News
 Jan 30 2024, 11:04:06 AM

FANtomFollies said: "I am thinking of entering the lottery for Six but had a few questions -

1- How difficult is the lottery to win? I'd be entering for 1 ticket if that makes a difference

2 - Are the lotto seats in a specific location or random?

3 - I'd be going alone and really hate audience participation...are there moments where the audience is asked to stand/clap/dance or anything like that?

4 - Is the show still 'fresh'

2023-2024 Broadway Season
 Jul 31 2023, 05:30:45 PM

Whatever that is, I don't think it's correct. Roundabout's website isn't showing production dates yet for Doubt or Home and they're both listed for the American Airlines Theatre. Also, May 30th next year is a Thursday so I can't imagine that would be the closing date.

The timing of the press release suggests to me that they had a company meeting after the matinee today and hope to have the news of the closing featured in Monday's papers to hopefully spike attendance in the final week.

I won the lotto for "One More Time" for tomorrow. Can anyone tell me if you have to pick up the tickets personally at the box office or are they sent to your email?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!


They will get emailed to you a few hours before the performance. 


Grey House rush

I rushed a few minutes after 5pm yesterday and got Orchestra Row B 5-7. 

Pre-Show and the Balcony
 Jun 23 2023, 12:53:20 PM

I went to the show last night and while the bulk of the pre-show does happen in the Orchestra there were two actors who went up into the Mezzanine for a few minutes. There is a bit of activity that happens on the stage itself so that would be visible. The pre-show I saw last night was quite different than what I saw last month. There was a whole bit that took up the length of the orchestra from front to back that went on a few minutes. That hadn't happened the last time I saw the show, wh

Broadway prices and uncomfortable seats
 Apr 20 2023, 06:08:26 PM

I want to make mention of the fact that Second Stage just renovated the Helen Hayes and opted for absolutely horrendous seats. It's not just a legroom issue, the seat pan and seat back are entirely unforgiving. I remember having orchestra aisle seats for Linda Vista and being miserable. Went back there for Thanksgiving Play two weeks ago and my girlfriend said, "They are somehow worse than I remember." and that was before anyone was sitting down next to us.

New Cast Album Signing In The Theater?
 Jan 6 2023, 12:15:51 PM

Jordan Catalano said: "I was at a show the other night (a show that’s had a cast album out for a while now) eavesdropping on a conversation between two people behind me who were obviously “in the biz” talking about a show that’s planning to do a cast album signing onstage in the theater. I only heard mid conversation so didn’t hear what show. Anyone have any info? The last one of those i think i remember was “Little Night Music” with Sondheim
