I really liked it tbh!  I thought performances were great across the board- with the standouts being Alison Pill and William Jackson Harper.  Steve Carell is also excellent as Vanya, and manages to bring some humorous moments while still feeling very grounded and naturalistic.  

The adaptation itself is a pretty standard Vanya adaptation.  It worked for me and while it dips a bit in Act 1 I did find overall it moved at a good pace and I was never really bored.

A few months ago, someone in another thread said Swept Away waslooking at the Booth. I wonder if they are being deferential and waiting until Kimberly Akimbo has finished its run before making an announcement.
My fingers are crossed as I loved it at Arena Stage.

Not sure what theatre they’ll end up with, but the Booth is also ready booked for both a summ

NY City Center Encores 2024 season: ONCE UPON A MATTRESS with Sutton Foster (adapted by Amy Sherman-Palladino), JELLY'S LAST JAM, and TITANIC

I was there tonight and I’ll just say in short: this is one of the worst things I have ever seen at City Center.  The pitiful 9 person orchestra and truly abysmal arrangements.  The performers are all trying to do the best with what they were given, but they can’t quite overcome the clunky direction and terrible arrangements that are dragging them down.  No chance this transfers.

They did get a bigger name although I’m not convinced he’ll give them the box office bump they need.  We’ll have to see what happens!  

It’s someone who has been on Broadway recently.

Tommy I believe is eyeing the Broadhurst for the Spring, so I could def see this going into Imperial.  We should find out soon!

Fwiw there are a handful of new songs in the film, a

PRIMA FACIE Rush/Lottery

Where were your seats?

I might try swinging by the box office tomorrow to see if they have any sort of last minute in-person kind of deal (or if the secret rush applies).


I did this last week and they offered a $77 prime center orchestra seat.  Expensive for a rush but still an AMAZING deal.

They already have their tour Fanny and it’s not Julie.  As far as I know, she was not even offered it. (It’s a former Elphaba, she will be great but tbd on if she can sell tickets)

Why is it blue?

Apparently it’s just a generic “Max” background that cycled through a bunch of different upcoming movies.  So that’s not an official poster, as much as just the title treatment on a generic background.

This is a very quick turnaround for the Golden with Prima Facie closing in mid-June. But excited to see this one, wasn’t able to see it in any of its previous iterations!

Criminal defense attorney here, we pronounce this differently in the states than in the UK. Most people that I know here say "fay-shuh," and they say fay-see or fay-shee. It catches me off guard every time. Looking forward to seeing this next month, though. I'm g

They are talking about the revival of Cabaret. My understanding is this theater is no longer in the cards for that production but we do live in a world of possibility, so maybe it will still happen.

Yep I heard the same- at one point Cabaret was going to be the next tenant and the renovations would be used to convert t

Nope!  I emailed them asking to confirm they had gotten my request and said I should expect my check by the end of April.  So fingers crossed those comes soon!  I still think check is such an inefficient and silly way to do refunds
