To this point, isn't this sort of how Whoopi got famous? One person show... she was an unknown at the time... Not saying the shows are similar - I've no clue about this show

I don't understand how the fame of the actor, or lack of fame, is relevant to the price of tickets.

If it was Denzel Washington, or Jake Gyllenhaal, or Timothée Chalamet... would the cost be somehow justified?

Is this a joke? 

I don't know how to evaluate whether a price is "justified" (that feels personal to each buyer). But,the fame of actors is UNQUESTIONABLY relevant to ticket prices. Do you really think buyers would pay $800 for Music Man without Hugh Jackman? Or $600 for Merrily without Daniel Radcliffe? Or $500 for Prima Facie without Jodie Comer? HELL NO!!!! 

What people will pay for a ticket is WAAAYYYY higher when they get to see a big star. People would definitley pay $250 on a regular basis to see Washington, Gyllenhaal, or Chalamet. There's no way they will for Rob Madge.

No, it is not a joke.

Of course I understand the reasoning behind the high prices to see a star... from the perspective of a ruthless capitalist producer. What I don't understand is how these prices are justified from the perspective of a ticket buyer.

Surely what matters is the quality of the work? The inherent value of a show does not change depending on how many instagram followers the cast has.

Sorry but these people are crazy. They really think audiences are going to pay these ticket prices that are currently being  advertised? Even if a discount comes out, it is going to be way too high. The person who said this belongs in New World Stages got it exactly right. I would maybe pay up to $50 for this but not much more.

I haven't seen the offering papers, but it may be that this one-person musical is economical enough that they don't have to sell tickets for much more than a $50 average to break even. Broadway's a better loss-leader than Off-Broadway, and it's hardly more expensive for a show like this to be done On vs Off.

MY SON'S A QUEER (BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO?)

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.”

It’s a play on that lyric. Rob was Gavroche in the 25th anniversary concert.

Is this even going to make it to opening? I keep seeing ads on Facebook with comments below like “Too expensive” and “He had his cheerios [substitute the ‘ch’ for ‘qu’ - I don’t want to type the word they used] and thinks he can be a Broadway star”.
Seems like there’s not just a lack of enthusiasm for, but some actual declared avoidance of this show.

I became ethusiastic after seeing Rob Madge interviewed by Frank Dilella.  This sounds like a lovely story about family and acceptance.

The Balcony and Mezz are practically unsold for most performances so far.

I've been invited to a party at British Ambassadors residence next week to celebrate this brave new work.

Exciting.

Much of the side orchestra has been on sale for $48 since the show went on sale (no code required).
