DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES - Opening Night Critics' Reviews  Feb 23 2024, 04:16:13 AM

It's a stunning piece of theater that isn't for everyone... And that's ok.


Yes, a smaller house would have suited the show better, for profitability, but I didn't feel it lost anything being at studio 54. Granted, I was in the front row of the mezz on a seemingly sold out performance.

THE QUEEN OF VERSAILLES musical will have pre-Bway tryout this summer in Boston  Feb 20 2024, 11:43:31 AM

Pre-sale has started, for anyone that has limited availiblity to attend.  It's certainly selling, but nothing crazy.  A few dates are listed as "limited" but none as low.  (Opeining night appears to only have made the balcony available for sale.)

Prices range from 40 (rear balcony) to almost 300 (which include a "package".   I got two front row mezz tickets for 315 total, including fees.  (139 base price.)  It's a pretty bi

When I saw it on 2/4, the house was packed. (I was in the mezz). 

My companion and I were deeply moved by it, but I can't see it's a show I'd return to, ever. In less capable hands (than Kelli and Brian) I don't see how this will survive in the regional market . 

They knew this wouldn't be an easy sell, thus the limited engagement.  I'm guessing they went for the exposure of Broadway.

Personally, I have no interest in this - but my kids might - they are definitely more the demographic than I.


But yes, how nice to see such resounding support!

There's a Lempicka code 2 pages back, if it still works. 

How much does a minimal set affect your ability to follow along with a show's storyline?  Feb 16 2024, 08:41:27 PM

Not at all. There are shows where big and lavish are called for, and other times it's not.


I've never been hindered by a lacking set.

This is all I will ever ask for. It's so very over the top from the novel to the film, it just SCREAMS, " I SHOULD BE A MUSICAL! "
