SUNSET BLVD to transfer to Broadway  Apr 18 2024, 06:25:51 PM

I splurged and got premium seats for this - has anyone seen a show at the St. James and done a package with the VIP lounge access? Curious what the experience was like and where the room is in the theater. Does the lounge have it's own restrooms? Any info is appreciated :)

Jordan Catalano said: "ATG is all about selling as much alcohol to people in the theater as humanly possible so I’m sure things like this won’t be exactly uncommon."

In combination with performers entering/exiting through the audience, a low stage and an immersive environment. Maybe people think they don't have to behave like they are at a Broadway show when it no longer looks or feels like a Broadway show?

Apparently an audience member walked up to the stage and grabbed Eddie Redmayne's costume tonight? Anybody there to give any more details?

Nicole Scherzinger to star in West End Sunset Boulevard at the Savoy  Apr 14 2024, 08:03:49 PM

Her performance is truly incredible. I knew her vocals would be great but I was completely unprepared for her acting ability. Absolutely knocked my socks off.

I have 2 theories, and they may both be true. One is I think she must be good friends with several producers, and my second is that she is a lovely person and lots of fun to work with. I think we can all relate to knowing people who aren't very talented/skilled but if you have the right friends and have a

John Napier's Brilliant Set Designs for the original SUNSET BOULEVARD  Apr 10 2024, 11:23:02 PM

Napier's designs remain in a league all their own.

I have to say, even though the new Sunset coming to Broadway is super minimalist there are moments and visuals that made my jaw drop when I saw the show in London. I think most of the people complaining of it being scaled down have not seen it.

Like who? I feel like she is known enough in the Broadway community to sell one show a week. Was Rachel Tucker more well known?

No idea ifthere’s any validity to it, but has anyone else heard rumblings about Mandy?"

No idea, but I feel like she would be perfect in this production.

This sums up 80 percent of Broadway Shows in one sentence. Our standards have dropped so low. I have been going to Broadway for 50 years.

I think they are banking on the fact that this is a classic to my fellow black people. the average black american grew up with The Wiz and doesnt know good theatre (no shade). They are

I don't know if I'll go or not.

Were you able to see which seat you got before you purchased?

THE GREAT GATSBY Broadway Previews  Apr 8 2024, 09:03:44 PM

Has anyone won the digital lottery for this? I'm wondering how difficult a win it is and also where winning seats are located.

Plexsis said: "What are the chances of this cast getting a recording? I’m assuming slim to none (with the excuse of having Eddie Redmayne’s live performance on an album already).

However, with the rest of the cast being brand new (and including theater legend Bebe Neuwirth in a role people are already giving her raves for) I’d love to see this be in the works.

I feel like with Eddie's contract being so short, if anything they will wa

I haven't seen the production yet, but having seen all of their promo pics from London, I think it's safe to say that visually this production is not completely period-speci

I completely agree and that's part of what I really like about casting Gayle as Sally. I know she's only 34 but I like that she is not in her 20's and doesn't look it - especially for the 1920's/30's she would have been consi

No word on who, but the alternate will perform on Tuesdays starting after opening night. When you go to purchase tickets for those dates a message is on the page. I'm dying to know who the alternate will be.

Just sent you a PM.

Yes, the Seat Geek help account on Twitter gave me one. Do you need it?
