Where To Eat In NYC


Image result for restaurant row picSo let's say you are planing a trip to New York City in the coming months. Now of course you are  probably going to see a show or two, and probably visit a few museums and shops while you are here as well. It is New York City after all. But let's say you get a little hungry in between all of those things. Where do you eat?

Well I guess you could stop by Olive Garden, or one of our many TGI Friday's or Applebees. Don't you dare! They don't call us the "Food Capitol of the World" for nothing after all. The only question is of course where to eat? Well thankfully for you, you have come to the right place.

Image result for nyc pizza picBecause we here at Applause love to eat. I mean who doesn't really? Now I have always been more of a meat and potatoes kind of guy. Although I do love me a good pasta now and then, not too mention pizza. Oh and don't forget barbecue as well as the occasional seafood meal.

That's what' so great about New York City. We have it all. Now for those of you who would like a few suggestions on what a true New Yorker likes to eat, Todd Freeman in my office, has compiled a list of some of the best restaurants to check out while you are here. Not only is the food amazing, but so are the prices. Who doesn't love a bargain? I know I sure do. Happy eating everyone!

See Waitress For Less This Summer

WaitressStill haven't seen Waitress yet? Well, there is no better time than the present. The show, which currently stars American Idol alum and Smash and Scorpion star Katherine McPhee, is one of the most uplifting and heartfelt shows on the Great White Way. Now I love the movie. Although to be honest, I am not a huge fan when producers take a successful movie and turn it into a big splashy Broadway musical. I never have been.

Yes I know there have been quite a few successes over the years, with Hairspray, Once, Billy Elliot and Kinky Boots being the most recent examples of those that went on to win multiple Tony Awards, and enjoyed long runs as well.

Well as it turns out, I had nothing to worry about.Not only did I love the show, but it went on to be one of the biggest success stories of the 2015-2016 Broadway season, and continues to play to packed houses eight times a week at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.

Now for those of you who still want to see the show, you are in luck.We sell it. In fact 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 September 2, it is for select seats only, and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see Waitress on Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. You will love it. I know I did. Until next time theatre fans.

Customer Story

The Phantom of the Opera TicketsToday's customer story comes all the way from the "Volunteer State". That's right, I am talking about the great state of Tennessee. Yesterday, I received a call from a gentleman who's family was heading over to London in July, and wanted to see a show. Their choice? Why none other than The Phantom of the Opera.

Now you would think that after thirty plus years, that everybody on the planet has seen the show. Well those that are musical theatre fans that is. Well as it turns out, two of his kids had seen the show already, but the others had not. Anyway, after finding out when they would be there, I asked them where they wanted to sit, and more importantly how much he wanted to spend.

After all, he was buying tickets for nine people. Since this was a special trip, he wasn't concerned with the price so much as he just wanted good seats. In the end I got him great seats in the Stalls, and at a price that was lower than he was expecting. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

Chazz Palminteri to Return to A Bronx Tale

Palminteri will play the role of Sonny on weekday performances start May 24th.  Not only is A Bronx Tale about Palminteri’s life, he also wrote the book for the musical, and premiered in the show in 1989 before the film adaption was debuted.

A Bronx Tale tells the story of a young Italian boy who encounters a mob boss and is torn between the exciting life of the mob, and making his honest father proud. The story is based largely on Chazz Palminteri’s childhood.

Original cast member and Tony nominee Nick Cordero, who is currently in the show, will continue playing Sonny on Saturdays and Sundays.
