The show had me totally captivated yesterday... until the last 10 minutes. As a devoted fan of the TV series, I defend most of the changes made here from the TV show to the stage. As it stood yesterday, they try very early on to set itself apart from the TV series and make is clear that this is not going to be the same plot but keep little bits and pieces that will harken back to the series and it does, in my opinion, a very good job of it. Until... that last ten minutes. And then it's li
If it runs like telecharge lottos normally do, when you don't claim the ones you were offered, you will be put back into the draw for all OTHER dates and times you entered even though your 1st email says you lost the other dates and times.
Telecharge lottos you can only win one at a time. So just as an example from when I do a normal daily telecharge lotto with multi draw times. If I win at draw one, I am told I lost all the other shows I entered. If I take that ticket, I don't
I love how Smash unintentionally created the wildest social experiment in the theatre community without intending to do so. The reason there is no thread was that anyone that knew about it.... didn't say jack about it to increase their own chances of getting their name drawn. Sorry to gatekeep but somehow, anyone that knew about it collectively did so it seems.
To those that are just hearing about this now, last Thursday telecharge sent out a link to enter the chance to attend one
Looking for a current code for Shucked that would be good for dates in December. While I know it's usually on TDF (which I have) I am bringing someone along that can't climb stairs to picking our own seats downstairs is a must.

There are a number of factors that go into shows setting their sights on particular houses even when others are open. Among the MANY factors you have first and foremost what house will be able to fit the show and it's assets? What kind of wing space does a show need/house have? If there are certain tech elements that are important, can a hou
So a Worst Pies single drop is coming sometime soon. The show's official tiktok accidentally dropped a "out now" video with footage in the recording booth with a clip of the song the other day. I caught it before they quickly removed it but it sounded great and the text under the post was about the song being out now on streaming services. So that should be coming sometime soon
Welp, saw the show this past Wednesday. Car was in the finale, so sorry to anyone that does NOT get the car because... why else would anyone make themselves sit through this show when they could save the money and just watch the movie?
I have seen my fair share of movie to musical adaptations but they usually have something of value to add or add something to the plot to make it it's own special thing. Some new plot, some great songs, etc. But when the only thing of value to add to
I have been twice so far (went with a friend and knew my mother would LOVE it so went back with her). If you take the time to read all the the little info bits, it's honestly really interesting time imo. However, both visits we went before a show and really wish we had some more time because about have way thru, we realized we were on a time limit to make it to our shows so could not that the same leisurely pace in the second half as we were able to in the first half. Spent 90 minutes the
Get there for doors opening. I was in one of the boxes when I went and not sure if it was like this at other performance but most of the upstairs interactions happened EARLY before they all moved to finish the last 10 minutes or so downstairs. The pre-show started within MINUTES of entering the theatre.
Lotto Update. Just got an email from Telecharge and confirmed on the currently open lottos that they will now offer two different lottos for Here Lies Love. One for seats. One for standing on the dance floor. Same $39 price tag for both.

I would actually assume the opposite. It's had several regional and international productions, had a 6-month NYC run off Broadway and there's a longer gap between its original NY production and this one than several other shows that have been considered revivals (Assassins, Hedwig, Wit, etc.). So I would be very surprised if they call this

I'd love to get aisle tickets for her birthday knowing that he'll run right by her as a bonus surprise."
No. Its members of the ensemble during the megamix at the curtain call. It's VERY brief and they only got back like.... 10 rows before going back up on the

This. I feel like if this show had a BIT more time to figure itself out, there is something there.
I saw it a few weeks ago and for whatever reason did not feel com

Wasn't there a huge issue regarding that in 2018 when George Salazar took to Instagram to complain about the whole stipulation that not nominated shows can't showcase, or am I missing something, or is this a year where things are unique due to the WGA strike?"
Well, finally happened. I have been to a show with an audience's whose behavior was SO bad that I left enraged. It was at &Juliet yesterday and the school group behind was was SEEMINGLY okay...... until "I'm Not a Girl (Not Yet a Woman)." They were totally fine with May as a character so long as they were the "gay best friend" trope but the moment that May revealed they were non-binary, they did not stop laughing and making rude little comments anytime May was
The email blast for those on the mailing list says that the screening will happen on Saturday morning at 11:15am. I was already going but this makes me even more excited to go. I just hope it doesn't run during other panels I want to sit in on.

Two months? Try two weeks. A few of the shows that would have performed and were up awards have been limping through just to get to the awards. If they are not going to be seen on national TV, producers are more than likely going to cut their loses sooner rather keep bleeding money because they can't wait for the strike to end and a ceremony to be held later in the summer or the fall. They just don't have the funds left to justify it when they had budgeted to hold on specifically to June 11th.
