Thank you!

Most actors on Broadway don't have an estimated net worth of $300 million.
"

Jake Gyllenhaal (Sunday and A Life), Leslie Odom Jr (Purlie Victorious), Kerry Washington (American Son), and Deborah Cox (The Wiz) are among those who have done it recently. But I don't know how much financial or day-to-day producing involvement they had. Back in the day, people like Jose Ferrer and Laurence Olivier produced and controlled their own work a lot.

I'm gonna guess that Team Downey also holds the film rights to adapt the play (whether anything ever comes of that or not).

Susan Downey (RDJ's wife and producing partner) is a savvy producer and is probably one of the people pushing him into more interesting projects after being stuck in franchiseland for so long.

So it would appear that you can book up to 2 tickets at the membership price and another 8 or so at the regular.  Anyone care to confirm?

During the member sale, you can only purchase member tickets, 1 for each membership you have, maximum of 4 memberships.

Got an email that they're tying a ticket to the Bengsons concert with the chance to win two tickets to McNeal. Is The Keep Going Songs selling that poorly? I feel like I've been getting more LCT emails than normal.

Not for me... Got kicked out and then was placed to the queue again, estimated waiting time is another 20 minutes :(

Same. Waited 9 minutes then got an error message and eventually was told I had lost my place in the queue and had to start over. Now waiting another 19 minutes. It’s inexcusable that after all these years LCT has a system that crashes.

Same for me. I was in the queue and at 10:10 a.m., it said that it was my turn and I was being directed to the LCT member website. Then I got a message that my time expired, I had to get back in the queue. Now my estimated arrival time is 10:35. I've never had this problem on their website in the past. 

F/U: At 10:40, it was my turn once again, I was told I would be redirected soon, and then I was told my time expired. Andre Bishop can't retire fast enough!

Calling the member hot line and no surprise, all I get is a busy signal.

Just got my tickets on the 4th attempt. I guess it paid to be persistent even though it took an hour and a half.

I got through on my phone using the mobile version, where it selects a seat for you.

Waited 25 minutes and got kicked out and placed at the beginning again. It appears there are no Wednesday matinees.

Argh. I was in the queue for 30 minutes, then when told it was my turn, it told me I’d missed my chance and needed to re-enter the queue. Hope I can get something!

I was re-queued on my computer and then also used my phone. I got kicked out again from my computer queue but got through on my phone.

Same, I waited 20 minutes, and when it finally got to the "It is your turn" screen, I was redirected and told I lost my place in line. Now waiting another 16 minutes...

I suggest like others say using your phone. Took me all of 20 min to book excellent center orchestra seats.

I don't now if browsers make a difference, but I encountered no problems with Firefox on a Mac. 

Got out of the queue at 10:27 a.m. and snagged a center orchestra aisle seat for a November Saturday night: $97.75 with fees.

no, clearly it is not.

but what basis would you have for making this assertion three minutes after the sale started?!?

So, I got through on my phone and was able to purchase two tickets in the center orchestra row B, without getting to choose my seats, and only after I paid, I realized that this row doesn't even exist on the seat chart. The 1st row appears to be C. Am I going to wind up looking at actors shoes and not the play itself?

Went on an hour after sales started (8am West Coast time) & got in on the mobile site in 10 minutes.  Got offered a few seat choices off center orchestra for a Saturday matinee in November. $97.75 seems like a reasonable price.

Last week I changed the date I'm arriving into NYC,  so I could add 2 more shows to my trip. If all goes according to plan I will be able to see 7 performances.

I heard the notification sound and saw "it's your turn", then instead of being redirected, i got kicked out - now the waiting time is more than an hour

Thank you, Taffy. I feel way better now! SeatPlan and View from my seat start with the row C, so I panicked a little. A bit too close for my taste, still, but at least there's another row in front.

I sat second row center orchestra (forget the row number) for My Fair Lady and found it to be a bit uncomfortable, more so because the guy in front of me was nearly 7 ft tall, but I was able to look up onto the stage and see a good deal of the action. I similarly sat in second row for Junk in the 400 section and had a better view of the stage.
