Y’all know this show closed on Sunday, right?


Kit Connor and Rachel Zegler to star in ROMEO & JULIET on Broadway?

I don’t understand why everyone is rushing to get tickets to this on day one. It’s for sure not going to sell out this far in advance, and virtual queues are almost always a disaster with Telecharge involved. Just wait until tickets go on sale, you’ll be fine.

I sat in Rear Mezz Row E the last time I saw it, and while a couple heads at the back of the sound booth are slightly cut off during the recording scenes, you don’t miss any action. Further back, you’re starting to risk the sightline and also it just feels far away.&nbs

No one is saying this board has zero influence, but I do think the people who come here blaming board commentators for negatively impacting the public opinion of this show or any show vastly overestimate how influential opinions shared here actually are.

I was in a show a few years back that the folks of this board really didn’t care for. Nearly every reaction in the thread about it was mixed to negative. But we extended twice and sold out nearly every sho

A clip of Rachel Chavkin’s speech at curtain call. It’s giving “too close to the material.”

So basically: Because I made this show, and I intended to express this through the show, if you don’t like the thing I made that means you don’t see me or what I expressed.

Really fascinated by the disconnect the creators and diehard fans of this show have from reality, but I hope they had a great time. On to the next.

It obviously relates to the idea of recording an album, but is there any more specific connection between the title and the story? (It could be the name of the band or of the album, neither of which is given in the show.)"

It is apparently based on the technical definition of stereophonic sound: “using two or more channels of transmission and reproduction s

Saw this tonight and thought it was absolutely exhausting, from nearly the beginning to the end. I don’t really understand what all that overdirection (and underdirection during the book scenes) was in service of.

Can’t say I really cared for the performances. Gayle Rankin had her moments in the book scenes, but the production doesn’t actually feel all that interested in Sally and she felt very much lost at sea. Eddie Redmayne is doing everything and the kitchen sink

Sleep No More - what kind of shape is it in?

I believe they’ll continue to run the additional bar/restaurant/performance venues on the top floors post-SNM closing. They’ve become their own hot spots for various limited engagements and events, and they’re run mostly independently.

Sleep No More - what kind of shape is it in?
 May 14 2024, 10:06:19 AM

General word of mouth seems to be that they’re extending until Emursive’s (not Punchdrunk, the actual creator of Sleep No More) new show - Life and Trust - opens. A good number of SNM’s cast will be a part of that show, so smart to keep them employed in the interim, I guess? But they’ve been “closing” for months and went to their original marketing strategy of extending a month at a time.

Fun Broadway connection is that Life and Trust will be choreog

I’ve seen it around 20 times over the years and the only bad shows I’ve had have been because of the crowds. And the crowds these days are bigger and more aggressive than ever. I would say if you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and don’t bother. It’s too expensive now to risk all that truly awful audience behavior.

For those of you who have listened to the album, is there a reason the songs were not included? Maybe they didn't fit into the narrative?

I’ve been playing this nearly on loop for the last week thanks to the generous folks on here who grabbed the Tony FYC link, but there’s something really special about purchasing it and playing it legitimately. I maintain that “Drive” is my favorite track, but there’s not a false note in any of the songs. I love them all.

Already have tickets to see it twice more, pre-Tonys and post. Wild to think this may only run for 4 months, but I would love to see

I’m sure they’ll do “Masquerade” at the Tonys if they perform, but I hope they do “Bright (Take 22)” instead. But I imagine they want to keep the climactic moment of the first act under wraps as much as possible.

The album is SO good. And Will Butler teased on his Instagram post about the physical album release that they’re considering recording an LP. Which would just be… wonderful.

“Masquerade” is the most obvious single (ironic, given it’s status in the play), and “Bright” is the emotional focal point, but I’m really enjoying “Drive” in its full version. It’s the first song we hear them actually play, so it has to be a hook, and it really is.
