Just bought seats for myself and a friend - a group of us will already be in town for the weekend to see Pictures From Home, and we’re intrigued by this (and the attached cast).

Simon Stephens and Mark Eitzel seem like a match made in a very melancholy heaven.

Every time I see "Kevyn Morrow" I think "Karen Morrow."

Neil Pepe doesn't have a great track record with musicals so should be interesting.

Anyone else get $25 tickets today?  They went fast.

Very excited for this show!

Yes, I managed to snag the last one for Feb 4! It was the only performance on my trip that still had a ticket left!

Is she staying with this or continuing with (reportedly) MAN OF NO IMPORTANCE on Bway?

Right now this is only scheduled through the end of February. Even if it were to extend a few weeks, conceivably she could do both.

I snagged an Access25 seat for 1/24 and I’m really looking forward to this. Probably one of my most anticipated musicals of 2023 out of everything that’s been announced thus far.

I was able to grab two Access25 tickets for January 27th! Super excited to see this. What an amazing cast to see do a musical in a 95 seat venue.

not that familiar with Atlantic Stage 2 ... anyone know why the aisle pairs in the back row are labeled "partially obstructed"?

They're sold out. They would normally show up as orange on the seating chart for preview performances.

thanks, Taffy!

can't really tell from the pic how much of an obstruction they'd be ... probably it depends on the production, too.

Why would Atlantic put such a big-name show with an all-star cast in its tiny theater, yet put its past sleep-inducing show (The Far Country) at the mainstage theater?  Shouldn't the 2 shows have reversed theaters?

I think you're asking about the wrong show.

The Far Country, which closed 3 weeks ago, didn't overlap with this one at all (though admittedly it would've been a tight turnaround to switch out the sets). Plus, The Far Country's scenic design probably wouldn't have been possible in the smaller space, so we know why it needed the larger space.

The real question is why they put Elyria (the upcoming show, which actually DOES overlap with Cornelia Street) in the larger space. Those would've been the more intuitive ones to switch. But since Elyria hasn't started yet, we don't know what their use of the space will be (and same for Cornelia Street, until we start getting reports back). Until we see/hear otherwise, I'm assuming it was a logistical decision based on the needs of each show - in which case, I respect the choice.

Elyria's seating has the normal orchestra configuration plus 3 additional sections in the round on the stage area.

Ah! Thanks for pointing that out. All the more reason then. That configuration might've felt very cramped in the small space.

Theatre3232’s proposed switch had nothing to do with the timing of each show. His point was that Far Country belonged in the smaller space and Cornelia Street in the bigger space.

I understood what they were saying, but it's a moot point - why even bring Far Country into the conversation, if it wasn't in competition with Cornelia Street for the larger space?

Like I said, I think the scenic design for Far Country made it pretty clear why it belonged in the larger space, but even if Far Country had a simpler set, they had no inventive to put in their smaller space while their larger space was available.
