I sat in the mezz and had no issues with the sound. Loved it! I didn't know anything about the show beforehand but loved the music. Joaquina was amazing! I didn't recognize Oak at first. I thought it was so cool to see the original Hunnies from 1992 perform the same roles in 2024!!!!!! They were great!
I also wonder if they asked other actors to perform as Father Flynn.
Other stage actors who we've recently seen portrayed as priests on TV are Andrew Scott (Fleabag as "the hot priest" on TV and Vanya on West End) and Colin Donnell (Irreverent as the impostor priest on Aussie TV/Peacock and Shark is Broken on Broadway.) Both are goodlooking, charming, age appropriate, and have recently done shows on West End or Broadway.

I was able to get rush tickets last night too (sat in mezz) and I’d agree Amy’s interpretation was more on that side. Both she and Liev did a great job and though I was doubtful of the age difference at first, it didn’t bother me at all after watching the show. Liev impressed me too and I plan to see it again after opening but in front orchestra.
It does seem like false advertising. I watch over 100 performances on Broadway each year and during the BCEFA fundraising period, the actors after curtain call who talk about BCEFA mainly mention how it helps HIV+ folks in the theater community who need financial assistance.
However, given all that we see in the news/social media in Gaza right now, if the actors also mention BCEFA is helping Doctors of the World and International Rescue Committee, I think audience members who sympathize with Gaza people would donate money too.
Normally my friends who are substitute ushers can always pickup shifts in December or Apr/May when a good number of theaters are occupied.
This time, however, literally all the available theaters are occupied. 38 out of 41 theaters! Majestic is under renovation; Palace is being built and I think Belasco is the only free theater since How to Dance in Ohio is closing?
In addition to ushers, there are merch/security/bar/accessible vendors who may be hiring too.

It would be more interesting and entertaining using one actress and focusing on the period of her life beginning when she first arrived on the music scene in the mid 1960s to when she became a household name in the early 80s."
agreed or have it be 2 musicals (one focusing on her younger days
I recall during the pandemic people were worried that Broadway will only be full of the long-running shows like Wicked, Lion King, Aladdin, Book of Mormon, Hamilton, Wicked, Phantom, Chicago, etc. and that half the theaters would sit empty.
Now, people are complaining there are too many new shows?!?!!? I seriously don't remember the last time this many theaters were occupied at the same time. I say kudos to Broadway!
As a local New Yorker, I plan to watch all of them e
I also thought it would close Presidents Day weekend. Perhaps another production is eyeing this season and wanted that theater? Or perhaps if more people bought tickets after the closing announcement they might extend an extra week?
The Sunday in the Park with George musical revival back in 2017 recouped after 56 performances (7-8 weeks) on Broadway so it is possible to recoup within 3 months depending on the star power, how much $$$ fans are willing to pay, and of course, the budget.
I think food/bev pricing are determined by the vendors the theater group owner uses and not by the production. If that’s the case, you may be better off contacting the vendor the theater group (Shubert/Nederlander/Jujamcyn) uses and get the prices directly from them. You may notice all Shubert houses to have the same food/bev prices; all Nederlander houses to have the same food/bev prices, and all Jujamcyn houses to have the same food/bev prices. I know some of them (Jujamcyn and S
