New Musical Anastasia Is Now In Previews

AnastasiaWhat's that you say? A new musical based on a movie? Now to be fair it was a movie musical. An animated one that is of course. Anastasia, which was released to critical acclaim in 1997, begins performances tonight at the Broadhurst Theatre, with opening night scheduled for April 24.

The show, which features a score by Tony winners Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Rocky The Musical), and a book by Tony winner Terrence McNally (Master Class,  Kiss Of The Spider Women), is being directed by fellow Tony winner Darko Tresnjak (A Gentleman's Guide To Love and Murder).

So what exactly is the show all about? Well I'll tell you. Set in Paris, during the height of the Russian Empire, this new musical tells the story of Anastasia, the youngest daughter of Czar Nicholas II, whose entire family was executed by the Bolshevik secret police in 1918. However Anastasia's fate remained a mystery for many years, as the location of her burial was unknown during the Communist rule.

Now for those of you who would like tickets to see Anastasia, you have come to the right place. Not only that, but if you call right now you can get tickets to see the show at prices that can't be beat. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru May 28, it is for select seats only, and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see Anastasia on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Miss Saigon To Open Tonight On Broadway

Miss SaigonHas it really been twenty-six years since Miss Saigon first took Broadway by storm? I mean I remember when it first opened back in 1991, and I thought it was one of the greatest cast recordings that I had ever heard. Now here we are in 2017 and Miss Saigon is back where it belongs. In fact it's playing at it's original home, the Broadway Theatre. I know I'm excited about it.

Now no matter what the critic's have to say, I have no doubt that this new production is going to be a hit. As of now the show is scheduled to close on January 13, 2018. Although I would not be surprised if it extends. Fingers crossed. By the way for those of you who want to see the show, you are in luck. We sell it.

Plus if you call right now, you can get tickets to see Miss Saigon at some incredible rates. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru June 10, it is not valid for performances from April 10-16, and May 26-27. Get your tickets to see Miss Saigon on Broadway at the Broadway Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Now Is The Best Time To See Aladdin On Broadway

AladdinStill haven't seen Aladdin yet? Well there is no better time than the present. The show, which is now in it's fourth year on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre, is one of the most entertaining shows you will ever see. Now I'll admit that I am not the biggest Disney fan in the world. In fact when I got invited to see the show, I wasn't sure if I was going to go.

Thankfully a co-worker of mine convinced me to see it. What a pleasant surprise. I dare say I was grinning from ear to ear from the first number to the last. Who would have thought? Now for those of you who still haven't seen the show I have some great news. We sell it. In fact if you call right now you can get tickets to see the show at prices that are lower than ever.

By the way, for those of you that are not familiar with the New Amsterdam Theatre, it is one of the largest on Broadway. Now I know what you're thinking. Surely all the seats can't be a full view if  the theatre is so big right? Wrong. Oh sure some of the seats may be a little further away then others, but they all have a full view of the stage. How many theatres can say that? Not too many my friends. Get your tickets to see Aladdin on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre. You will love it. Until next time theatre fans.

New Musical Based On Liberace To Hit The Stage

Liberace 8 Allan Warren.jpgHard to believe but it's been over thirty years since "Mr. Showmanship" has passed away. Liberace, who's career spawned four decades, was one of the world's most successful entertainers prior to his death on February 4, 1987. Throughout his illustrious career he was honored with two Emmy Awards, six gold albums, and two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Pretty impressive for a guy who grew up as the son of a poor immigrant from Italy. Now comes the news that this beloved entertainers life story is headed to the stage. The show, which is based on the 2013 Emmy Award winning film Behind The Candelabra, has been in the works since 2015. As of now no creative team or cast have been announced. Stay tuned to this blog for further updates. Until next time theatre fans.

Customer Story

On Your Feet!That's right theatre fans. It's time for this week's customer story. Earlier this week I heard from a travel agent in California who's client was coming to New York in July, and wanted to see a show while they were here. Nothing like planning in advance right?

So anyway, after finding out when they would be here, I asked her what show they wanted to see. Their choice? On Your Feet. Now I'll be honest when I first heard they were making a musical about the life and career of Gloria Estefan, I was kind of surprised.

Don't get me wrong. I love her music. I just wasn't sure how it would play on the big stage. Well as it turns out I was wrong. What a great night in the theatre. But enough about what I thought about it. Now since the show was five months away, I knew I would have no problem getting excellent seats.

Plus since the show has been playing for a while now, I also knew that I would be able to get them at a lower price. In the end I got them great Orchestra seats on an aisle, and at a rate that was lower than they were expecting. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
