Customer Story

WaitressTodays' customer story comes all the way from our nations capitol. That's right. I am talking about Washington D.C. Yesterday, I received a call from a travel agent who was planning a last minute trip to New York City for the Thanksgiving holiday, and wanted to see a show while she was here. Anyway after finding out when she was going to be here, I asked her what she wanted to see.

As it turns out, her first and only choice was Waitress. Now because she was a travel agent, she was able to get a discount on each of her tickets. Which was a good thing because she was buying eight tickets in total. In the end, I got her and her party tickets in the Front Mezzanine, and at a price that was lower than she was expecting. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

Get Tickets To See Charlie And The Chocolate Factory For Less With Applause Theatre Service

Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryStill haven't seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Well what are you waiting for people? There is no better time than right now, to see Broadway's favorite "Scrumdiddlyumptious" show of all time.  Like how I threw that in there? Growing up, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was one of my favorite movies. Not only that, but Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was one of the first books that I ever read.

Now here we are some three decades later, and one of my childhood favorites is a big Broadway musical. To say I was excited was an understatement. The show, which premiered in the West End in 2013, opened on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on April 23. Now to be honest, the reviews weren't the greatest. But who cares?

After all, Wicked didn't get rave reviews when it opened, and it's been playing to packed houses on Broadway for fourteen years. Now for those of you who want tickets to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, you are in luck. We sell it. Plus if you call right now, we can get you tickets to see the show at prices that can't be beat. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru February 28. 2017, it is for select seats, and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Disney's The Lion King Celebrates Milestone

The Lion KingThat's right theatre fans. Disney's The Lion King is having a birthday. The show, which is based on the 1994 award winning film, will celebrate twenty years on Broadway tonight at the Minskoff Theatre. Now for those of you have read any of my previous blogs, know that I am not the biggest Disney fan in the world.

But even I know the impact that they have had on the New York theatre scene. Since it's premier in November 1997, the show has become the top grossing show in Broadway history, surpassing The Phantom of the Opera in 2014. Not bad for a musical based on a cartoon. Sorry. Animated film.

Now for those of you who still haven't seen the show, you have come to the right place. We sell it. In fact we sell every show both On and Off-Broadway. Get your tickets to see The Lion King on Broadway at the Minskoff Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Once on This IslandOne of my favorite shows of all time is Once On This Island. Now when I found out that I was moving to New York, I was so excited.

Directed by Tony nominee Michael Arden (Spring Awakening), and choreographed by Camille A. Brown (Cabin In The Sky, tick, tick...BOOM!), Once On This Island stars Tony winner Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon, Allegiance) as Erzulie,Tony nominee Phillip Boykin (Porgy and Bess) as Tonton Julian, Merle Dandridge (Tarzan, Spamalot) as Papa Ge, Quentin Earl Harrington (Cats, Ragtime) as Agwe, Alex Newell (Glee) as Asaka, and Broadway newcomer Hailey Kilgore as Ti Moune.

Now that is some cast theatre fans. Now for those of you who want to see the show, I have some great news. It is now possible to get tickets to see Once On This Island at prices that can't be beat.
