I just saw that Huey is going to be on the Drew Barrymore Show, tomorrow, to promote the musical.

Would they really pull the plug in the next few days, if Huey's still doing press on shows like Drew's? (Not that I'm arguing with everyone's gross data & reasoning for an imminenet closing notice.)

What does everyone think, now that the reviews have come out?

Will the show run for a short while, or is it still likely to announce a closing, any day now? 

Most importantly, considering that I have a ticket for the Saturday, June 1st performance, should I be checking my calendar for open days, before then? HAHAHA!

Personally, I had tickets to Ain’t Too Proud I had to exchange as I had an endoscopy ending up on the same day (and they say do nothing for 24 hours after anesthesia). I was so happy I could

I exchanged a ticket that was Rear Mezz, Row A, Seat 101 for a Front Mezz, Row C, Seat 111 ticket.

Safe to say that the new seat will offer a much better view of the action?

I usually try to be as central as possible. But, in this case, given all the dicussion about heads being cut off in the studio space, I opted to sit a little off-center, so I could be a row closer.

Did you get the ticket? HAHAHA!

NO JOKE, that was my ticket!!! - Earlier today, I exchanged the ticket for a May 11th one, since a family event popped up. (Thank to this board, I became aware of that fact that ticket exchanges were ev

I really really liked this show. I believed every character. I thought the script was complex and layered and fascinating. The music is phenomenal. The pacing dragged a smidgen after intermission, but not en

A small part of me thinks that this show could end up being like The Little Engine That Could...or Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer...aka the show that was picked on & belittled until everyone realized they needed/wanted it, resulting in it exceding everyone's expectations.

Does that mean that negative press/reviews will be weeded out (thus, kinda making the reviews worthless, overall)?

update: I exchanged for front mezz row B that brought the ticket from 40 to 120, but I’m really excited for this show so it wasn’t worth the risk I guess

I took a photo from the playbill:

WOW! - Thanks, Wick3.

There are some really great, deep cuts in the show: Don't Make Me Do It, I Know What I Like, I Never Walk Alone (one of my personal favorites), and Giving It All Up For Love (which I think was originally titled "Tattoo" on the record & written by Thin Lizzy's Phill Lynott, a personal friend of Huey.)

We got tote bags as a first preview gift whichare nice and have the logo and "wheres the bag?" on them

Just wonderful work, unless Mother Play ends up being a huge homerun I think this play has Best Play locked up, the audience was just super tuned in.

I would caution people not to sit in the rear mezz, it is obstructed and the higher up you sit the more of the rec

It was THAT EXACT period of time, when I thought I had a cleaver idea and said to myself, "You should write a jukebox musical that's based on the music of Huey Lewis & The News!" HAHAHA!

GEEZ! And, I thought I was playing it safe getting a ticket for June 1st.

Hopefully, your're wrong. (But, you & the few posts about yours make a compell

Eek!

Is is true that if the show hasn't sold that well...which, sorry to say,I'm not expecting for this...they'll let you move back to a more comfortable row? (File this under "Questions I Never Thought I'd Ask!" HAHAHA!)

I wonder if in addition to the flash sale, they lowered the standard prices.

I got front row, center balcony, on Saturday, June 1st, for $59. - I assumed it was part of the flash sale, but now I'm thinking that it might not be.

Either way, I got the kind of "deal" I had been looking for for a while. 


What Is The Best Way To Resell A Broadway Show Ticket?
 Mar 25 2024, 04:05:31 PM

Is StubHub a good option, like it is for concert/sporting event tickets?

Is/are there better places for reselling theater/Broadway tickets?

 

Thanks
