I have such secondhand embarrassment for the lot of them.

This actively makes me dislike the show even though I sorta enjoyed it when I saw it.

Any luck moving to a closer, empty seat once you’re in the theatre?

Moved to seats closer to the side exit doors at THE OUTSIDERS recently.  We needed to bolt as soon as curtain call ended to make it to OH MARY by 5 pm (which we did!) and it wasn’t an issue at intermission.  In fact then others moved to the seats we vacated.

I am going to be sitting Rear Mezz Row A in the very center on the aisle.  Will all the actors be visible even when they go into the booth upstage?

SUFFS Opening Night Critics' Reviews
 Apr 17 2024, 06:05:38 PM

I was never once bored but I do think the pacing in the middle of Act 2 slowed a bit - but that was during the first week of previews.  I have seen all the new musicals except heart of rock and roll and SUFFS by far was my favorite.  I have been humming the opening and closing songs ever since the performance I saw and cannot wait for the cast recording.  I hope their reviews are favorable.

Merrily We Roll Along -- End of June Scheduled Absences?
 Apr 8 2024, 08:43:03 PM

Just please don’t have your heart set on Ms Mendez.  I saw the show in October and March and she had unplanned absences both times.  Disappointing.

I sat in Mezz E2 on Saturday.  Very happy with the view at the price I paid.

And the show was fantastic!

THE WHO’S TOMMY Broadway Previews

I stand by my original review for the most part.

The only differences were that Adam Jacobs and Christina Sajous were in the show tonight. Jacobs was vocally fantastic and definitely had good chemistry with Luff and command of his role.

However, Christine Sajous…yikes. I never expected someone who has done rock musicals before to be so middling. She se

Most of the performances on Kelly’s show are pre-tapes except for thr kellyoke at the beginning of each episode.

Have you ever seen a musical on Broadway that didn't get a standing ovation?

The ten of us in the Mezz didn’t stand.

The show is in my city this week - going on Sunday.  Really looking forward to this - haven't seen it since Broadway with Carolee Carmello as Donna.

Can I make the 5 pm performance after seeing THE OUTSIDERS at the Jacobs?  I have high-tailed it after a musical down to Union Square for TITANIQUE with no problem.  Would this be similar?

Telecharge issues?

To their credit, Telecharge PM'd me shortly after my initial post, apologizing and acknowledging the problem they were having and that they were working on it. If I still wanted to buy the ticket to Stereophonic, I should call them. Didn't have time yesterday, so today I went back online to order it. Same dang error message. So I broke down and called them. Unfortunately, when trying to order the ticket and te

All the interviews are the three of them; it’s clearly how the show is being marketed so I was a bit disappointed. Further, seems to happen at a fairly high %. Unfortunately, was just in town for weekend, booked these tickets back in March 2023 and don’t know if I’ll be able to come back to

Rob Madge's MY SON'S A QUEER... at the Lyceum February 2024

Sounds like the title of a hokey off-Broadway musical comedy in like 1998.

All I can think of is Thenardier’s lyric from “Beggars at the Feast” at the end of Les Miz at the wedding:  “this one’s a queer but what can you do.”

Same - accessing this site today is a freaking mess.

West End Recommendation: THE LITTLE BIG THINGS
 Jan 7 2024, 06:22:43 PM

The cast recording to this has dropped and I must say I am really enjoying it.  The score sounds like Dear Evan Hansen but that is not a negative to me - I enjoy the pop sound and the vocals here are pretty great, too .  Recommend you give it a listen.
