The thing is though, can this sell out 1500 seats a night or would this be better off in one of the smaller Shubert houses

It is more likely that producers of other shows should worry about how this will eat into their ticket sales. This is the show that sold out before it opened off- Bwy.i It could be the snowball rolling over everything else.


"

So did Days of Wine and Roses. And Suffs at the Public last year. Selling a few hundred seats a night at Off-Broadway prices at venues with inbuilt audiences is not the same as selling out on Broadway. At the Shubert, they'll need to sell the equivalent of five Newman Theater audiences per show. Just look at what happened to 'Sidney Brustein's Window.'

It could well be a success, I wouldn't bet against Alicia Keys, but it's far from a sure thing. The reviews aren't selling many tickets. Also, I don't think the title works all that well for people from outside of NYC. Google it, and you'll mostly find stuff about Gordon Ramsey...

Looking forward to seeing this and thrilled for such a packed season but 13 new musicals? It's going to be a bloodbath.

Phenomenal cast, great music, awful book. Shoshana Bean makes dinner like ten different times over the course of the show.

Not called HELL'S KITCHEN for nothing.

Do you think they will offer any $99 seats for the back?

$69 for the last 2 rows of the balcony ($84 including fees)... what kind of presale prices are these?

Since when has presale meant bargain?  It's about access, not deals.  

That being said, anything under a 100 these days IS a deal.


If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Disagree. Suffs Public presale was a huge bargain. I got great front side mezzanine seats for $58 each including fees. An Enemy Of The People had great $79 seats inclusive of fees during the presale. The Notebook was $58 for the last two rows of mezzanine. Charging $84-$94 for the last two rows of the balcony and calling it a pre-sale is ridiculous. 

Edit: Merrily early presale was the only time when you could've gotten a decent seat at a price that made sense.

These prices are high. Trying to decide between the last row of orchestra or front row of balcony. Any input appreciated

Front Row of the Balcony I'd say. Consider the Mezz overhang in the Orchestra.

I sat front row of the balcony for TKAM.  It isn't quite as high as the balcony of the St James.  But it is still high.

I'm still 2 weeks from seeing this, so don't know if I would pay $200US for orchestra?  But those seats are nicer.

Front row of the balcony at the Shubert is extremely close to the stage, and you can very easily see faces. Only issue is having to sit up very straight or lean a bit forward, since the ledge is high. and you're looking down on the stage. Otherwise, it's a great view, and definitely worth the lower price. However, because of having to lean forward, any row besides row A is iffy.

I wish I liked this more. But the simpie plot and endless choreography spoiled it for me. 
 

I do want the CD, tho.
