"see me"


It was fine, but a bit spare for me. 

Why don’t actors share roles on Broadway?

Was a great decision for the producer's pocketbook. I ended up seeing it twice because of this.

Listed running time is 90 minutes, no intermission.


I was there tonight. A few amusing anecdotes. Quite a lot on the conflict between Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss but I don't feel like I learned anything I didn't know reading a few articles. 

Oh, Roy does smoke in the show

It's been hit-or-miss for the last week

  1. Some days 2 lotteries--one for seats, one standing
  2. Some days only a seated lottery
  3. Some days no lottery

They are clearly looking at sales the day before and using the lottery to fill unsold seats, rather than reserving some seats for the lottery in advance. I'd expect the floor to come back for slow s

They had no standing seats for the last 2 days of lottery (seated only) and no lottery now. I wonder if they're using the lottery just to fill empty seats or maybe reconfiguring the lottery so it doesn't run on weekend and doesn't take up the dance floor?


I posted about the lack of standing seats in the lottery in the thread a day or two ago, but those posts seem to have disappeared

People keep saying this, but it's totally not true. I just don't understand how people think it would work. Where is the standing room supposed to go in that case? Is it on stage blocking the view of everyone sitting?

Not Broadway, but the shed would have been a good venue for this.

Just give them your name.

I've done lots of will call pickups of TDF tickets. Some theaters will ask you for ID, but they're asking for any ID with your name on it to confirm that you're the person who's supposed to pick up the tickets. A driver's licen

Interestingly, TDF now has "standing" tickets up for Wednesday Matinee, although there's a disclaimer that it's possible they become seated tickets...

That's good. It was a pain to get up in the seats and there was little room to move. The second one seemed to be time filler to get the show to last 90 minutes-we got the point with the first one.


If I'm going to do the time warp, I'd rather be at a midnight show.

Saw it saturday. Not clear to me that the Broadway was the right venue for this--they've reconfigured it well, but the back mezz is so deep that you can't bring it into the action. Lots of empty seats in the back. I feel like a wider, shorter theater with a shallow mezz would have worked better (Vivian Beaumont?).  I'm not sure I see this making $$ with the back half of the mezz being such a tough sell.

As for the show, really enjoyed it. Agree with some of th

Interesting to see different takes on this. 'For the dreamers' (and it's little reprise in the clock tower scene) was the only song I really liked

Also at tonight's first preview. Like but not loved the show. It's Broadway comfort food: lots of little references and jokes to things that happen in the movie that were omitted for time or other purposes, forgettable songs, and a story arc that the entire audience knows where it's going. It'll probably do pretty well with tourists, and I may see it again when it's a little more polished, but it's not high art.

I jokingly told some of the my friends that the animatronic ape called its agent and asked to be let out of its contract.


I have too many to name. I've only left once at intermission, and I can't for the life of me remember what show it was...apparently a coping mechanism to deal with the PTSD: post theater stress disorder.

Saw it last night and agree about the difficulty of keeping track of such a large cast, especially as some of the children characters are played by adults in latter time periods (it covers a number of distinct time periods from 1899 to 1955)

I miss the opening song from Great Comet that laid out who everyone was-they do have a family tree as one of the scene transition images--perhaps they can add that to the playbill (to facilitate repeats).

Otherwise, I found it strong

Yes, that's what we call "eating your own."

But the reality is that even without the Twitter sabotaging, it would have closed soon after Patinkin's run (which was only going to be less than a month). They were running on fumes and there are a finite number
