It'll be interesting to see if this sells and if it will only be a limited run.


A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

And the website is up, though the link to buy tickets isn't working yet. I'll keep refreshing like a fiend until I nab 'em!

There are no tickets on February 25. Is that a glitch or something?

I'd rather see Jeremy Jordan in this.

This is a really odd time to transfer this. A) City Center is now competing with themselves at the Tonys (even if they're not directly involved with the transfers, they still want their productions to win to use for future marketing). And B) This show has zero name recognition outside of the theatre community. Do they really think Ben Platt's name is going to be enough to sell a bunch of tourists on this unknown-to-them musical in the summer months?

Is there a presale going on for a majority of the house? There seems to be zero center orchestra seats available outside of the premium seats.

Nope. This should have just been announced to run until June. Platt isn't a name that will sell tickets. I guess the hope is that this win some awards to help sell tickets.

I saw Jeremy Jordan attempt to play Leo. It wasn't a good fit at all - vocally or character wise.

Does anyone think Jason Robert Brown will conduct the orchestra?

I’m wondering if the box office is selling them today. I’ll probably go check/buy after I get my Strange Loop rush.

(NOT paying those Telecharge fees)

I can't imagine he would do it for 6 months, but wouldn't be surprised to see him pop in and conduct for a couple performances.

Looks like they are holding back a lot of seats.  None of the side orchestra seats that were marked as partial view for Company are available.

I didn't want to blow the bank so I went for a Mezz seat on a matinee during my upcoming trip.

I can't decide how tough of a ticket I think this is going to be. I was so excited to grab seats, but I forgot how expensive shows are these days. I just can't stomach spending $200 for a solid orchestra seat. Might roll the dice and hold off for a bit in hopes of a discount code. I did love it at City Center, but whew, prices these days are steep, and I forget sometimes HOW averse to paying full price I am!

Something just happened to Telecharge. I can't get tickets now. Anyone else having a problem?

Rear Mez isn't that bad.
