Two More Broadway Shows Announce Closing

King KongWill the madness ever stop theatre fans? Yes I know shows close all the time. But this is the second time in less than a week that this has happened. Yesterday, it was announced that both The Cher Show and King Kong will close in August.

Now while both shows received Tony Awards, The Cher Show won the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical, and Best Costume Design, and Sunny Tilders and Creature Technology Company was awarded a special Tony Award for their puppetry work on King Kong, it did not translate into sales at the box office.

Both shows are scheduled to play their final performances on August 18. Get your tickets to see The Cher Show on Broadway at the Neil Simon Theatre, and King Kong on Broadway at the Broadway Theatre. Time is running out. Until next time theatre fans.

Customer Story

What the Constitution Means to MeToday's customer story comes all the way from the "Bay State". That's right. I am talking about the great state of Massachusetts. Chestnut Hill to be exact. A couple of days ago, I received a call from a regular customer of mine who was planning a trip to New York in August with her husband, and wanted to see a couple of shows while they were here.

Their choices? Why none other than two of last season's most popular shows. Ain't Too Proud, and What The Constitution Means To Me. Two great choices I have to say. Having seen Ain't Too Proud, I suggested that the better seats are in the Front Mezzanine because not only is there a lot of dancing, but also a lot of video. Thankfully she agreed with me, and I got her excellent seats in the center.

One show down. One show to go. Now while I have yet to see What The Constitution Means To Me, I have seen many shows at the Helen Hayes Theatre, which by the way is the smallest theatre on Broadway. Which means, there is not a bad seat in the house. In the end, I got her excellent seats on the aisle in the Orchestra. So there you have it folks. Two great shows, with great seats to boot. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

A Day In The Life Of A Ticket Broker

A few months ago, I celebrated twenty-seven years of living in New York. Twenty-one of those have been spent working in the ticket industry, with fifteen of those years at Applause. Time sure does fly doesn't it? Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that when I moved to the big city back in 1992, that I would be spending my days and nights selling tickets to other people. I came here to be an actor, a writer, an artist. Yet here I am selling hundreds of tickets every week to travel agents, concierges, and total strangers. And you know what? I hate it. Just kidding. I love my job. I even love the people I work with too. How rare is that?

So while I wait for my big break, I continue to work at Applause and assist new and old customers alike with all their ticket needs. That’s not all. I am also here to answer any questions you might have about the greatest city in the world. Let's face it after being here for twenty-seven years, I have acquired a lot of knowledge about this great city of ours. Need help on what show to see? Give me a call. What about where to eat or what hotel to stay at while you're here? I can help with that too. Now I don't have an extension but since I am the only J. here I should be pretty easy to find. And if I'm not here feel free to send me an email at james@applause-tickets.com. Here's to another twenty-seven years.

Two Broadway Shows Announce Closing

The PromSad news theatre fans. Two of last season's most critically acclaimed shows are about to take their final bows on the Great White Way. The Prom, which was nominated for seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical of the Year, and Be More Chill, which was nominated for Best Score, will both close on August 11.

Now to be honest, shows closing after the Tony Awards is nothing new. In fact just last week, two other productions, Gary: A Sequel To Titus Andronicus, and Hilary and Clinton, announced early closings as well. Hopefully this will be it for awhile. Until next time theatre fans.
