Significant Other, A New Play, Arrives On Broadway

The Roundabout Theatre Company is very well known for bringing fantastic, often original work to the Broadway Theatre in New York.  Last week, Roundabout's new play, Significant Other, began at the Booth Theatre on February 14, 2017.

Significant Other tells the funny and heartwarming story of a young man by the name of Jordan Berman, who begins to question why all of his best friends are finding their "significant other", one by one and that he cannot seem to do the same.  He wants to find "the one" also at this point in his life.  It seems odd to Jordan that everyone else is headed for the alter and he can't seem to find a romantic connection.

Significant Other is a new play that comes to Broadway after a sold out run Off Broadway and aims to please.  The show is written by Joshua Harmon, author of Bad Jews, which played the Off Broadway theatre scene quite some time ago.

Last year, Roundabout Theatre Company brought to New York, another original play called The Humans, a great show that won a Tony Award for Best Play of 2017.  I saw it and it was something to remember for sure.

Charles Isherwood of The New York Times called Significant Other "richly funny & heart stirring".  Right now, my company Applause-Tickets is offering orchestra and mezzanine seats at a significant discount from our regular pricing.

If Significant Other is a show that you may want to see, we welcome you to call the local Broadway experts at Applause-Tickets at 212-307-7050.  Applause-Tickets is open 365 days a year and 24/7.

Won't you consider taking your "significant other" to see Broadway's Significant Other?  It sounds like a fun show to see.

We welcome your calls anytime you want to talk about Significant Other tickets or Broadway tickets for any of the nearly 40 shows playing in New York City.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

Broadway Revival Of Sunday In The Park With George Opens Tonight

Sunday in the Park with GeorgeI still can't believe this show is actually happening. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would see one of my favorite shows back on Broadway. Yet here we are nine years after the last Broadway revival, and Sunday In The Park With George is back on the Great White Way where it belongs.

Not only that, but it is starring Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford. Now do you see why I am so excited? The show. which officially opens tonight at the recently reopened Hudson Theatre, will play a limited engagement thru April 23. That's a little over eight weeks for those of you keeping count.

Now I know what you're thinking. Can you get tickets? Yes you can. Are they cheap? Actually they are not as expensive as you would think. After all it's not Hamilton or Hello Dolly. The good thing is it's not a big theatre. That means all the seats are good. Get your tickets to see Sunday In The Park With George on Broadway at the Hudson Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Customer Story


HamiltonThis week's customer story comes all the way from the great state of West Virginia. Morgantown to be exact. Last week, I received a call from a gentleman who was bringing his family to New York in May and wanted to see a show. His choice? Why none other than the hottest show on Broadway. That's right. I am talking about Hamilton.

Anyway after finding out what they wanted to see, I asked them when they would be here, and more importantly how much they wanted to spend. After all Hamilton is not cheap. He told me that the seats were more important than the price. After a little research I was able to find him some very nice seats in the Orchestra. Now were they right up front and center?

No. In fact they were four rows from the back on the left hand side. I know what you're thinking. Those seats couldn't possible be full view right? Wrong. Believe it or not, but they are a full view. Plus it is a very small theatre, so there is really not a bad seat. Oh and did I mention that the price was lower than he had seen anywhere else. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

Sara BareillesWell it was bound to happen I guess. After all she did write the music and lyrics for the Tony nominated musical. Sara Bareilles, the six-time Grammy nominated singer, is set to make her Broadway debut in the role of Jenna in Waitress.

The show, which recouped it's entire investment in ten months, continues to delight audiences eight times a week on Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.

Not only that, but the day after she was announced, the show sold over a million dollars in tickets. Pretty impressive don't you think?

Applause And Travel Agents

Travel Agent BrochureBelieve it or not, but in less than two months I will celebrate my thirteenth anniversary at Applause. Now while that may not be as long as we have been in business, it is still quite an accomplishment my friends.

Since that day I have spoken to hundreds and hundreds of customers. From regular people who were looking for great deals on theatre tickets, to concierges looking to get premium tickets for their guests. We have served them all, and then some.

However today's blog is about a very special group of people. That's right. I am talking about the travel industry. You know it still amazes me after all these years that I continue to hear from the same travel agents. In fact just last month, I heard from a travel agent from Toronto who has been using us for over ten years. Now that is what I call one loyal customer.

Now the truth is I'm not really surprised. After all when you provide great customer service, people continue to come back again and again. By the way, for those travel agents out there who have never used us before, I have some great news to share with you. For every ticket you purchase for your clients, you will receive a commission. Not only that, but when you purchase tickets for you or anyone in your family, you will receive a discount.

Sounds like a win-win situation to me. Also don't forget that Applause is open seven days a week. 365 days a year. That means we are always here to help with all of your ticket needs. Applause Theatre Service and Travel Agents. A winning combination for over twenty-eight years.

Sunset Boulevard on Broadway Aims To Please In Its Revival Engagement This Spring

It's an exciting time on Broadway again.  So many new and some, not so new "revival" shows have started or will start preview performances on The Great White Way in the coming days ahead.

One of my favorite all-time shows is Sunset Boulevard, which I saw for the first time about 20 years ago.  Last  week I caught a preview performance of Sunset Boulevard at New York's Palace Theater and it is still one of the great shows of all time.  Glenn Close, nearly 70 years old now is better than ever with a voice that carried to the top of the theater quite easily.  Let's just say, Ms. Close has gotten better with age. She plays all but forgotten silent film star Norma Desmond who lives in the past and has delusions of making a big comeback.  Ms. Close won a Best Actress Tony Award for her original role in the show years back and should easily win again, this time for Best Actress in a Musical Revival. The show opened last week to very good reviews and is a limited engagement running for 16 weeks only after a limited run in London's West End.

One of the famous lyrics, "it's as if we never said goodbye" is exactly how I felt seeing this fantastic show again.  All these many years later, Sunset Boulevard remains a relevant piece of the theater world.

Need Sunset Boulevard tickets?  Consider a call to the local Broadway ticket experts at Applause-Tickets in New York City.  Applause can assist with an extensive inventory of ticket options.

Wishing the best of luck and great success to the cast and creative team of Sunset Boulevard at New York City's Palace Theater.

Cheers

Hello Dolly On Broadway

Hello Dolly! TicketsNow unless you've been living under a rock for the past nine months, you know that Hello Dolly is headed back to Broadway. Not only that, but it is starring the one and only Bette Midler. The show, which sold over nine million dollars on it's first day of sale, is set to begin previews at the historic Shubert Theatre on March 15, with opening night scheduled for April 20.

Starring along side the Divine Miss M is Tony and Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce as Horace Vandergelder. Sounds like good casting to me. Please note that while Bette Midler is scheduled to perform in the show thru January 14, 2018, she is scheduled to miss the following performances.

June 27-July 2
July 5-9
July 30 7:30pm
September 6-10
October 15 7:30pm
October 30-November 5
November 24 2pm
January 7

Filling in for Bette is two-time Tony Award winner Donna Murphy ( Passion, The King and I). Also note that beginning on June 13, Ms. Murphy will be performing the role of Dolly Levi on Tuesday evening performances. Now while I realize people are coming to see the show because of Bette, Donna Murphy is a fantastic actress in her own right, and should be incredible in the role. Get your tickets to see Bette Midler in Hello Dolly at the Shubert Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Radio City Summer Spectacular Postponed

Now I'll admit that it takes a lot to shock me. But I am shocked by this news theatre fans. It was recently announced, that this year's edition of the New York Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes has decided to cancel this year's production. The reason for the cancellation was due to the show needing more work. Despite the cancellation, the producers of the show still plan to bring it back next year. Plus the Rockettes are scheduled to perform at this year's Tony Awards, which are being held once again at the world famous Radio City Music Hall. Here's  hoping the show returns next year even better than before. Until next time theatre fans.
