Buying London Theatre Tickets from Applause

by William T. Stolting

Applause has been doing tickets for London for over 10 years now. Our original strategy was to do tickets for all of Europe but the response rate for Italy and France did not live up to our guaranteed answer in 24 hours maximum. London has always been quick to respond and has provided us with premium seats even for the Hottest, hardest to get show. Aside from the quality of the tickets and the price (in spite of the weak US dollar), Applause has the benefit of our UK broker and of Claudia Bombeck who was educated in the UK. It makes our customers comfortable to know that they are dealing with experts. Most Americans are always a bit uncomfortable dealing with a foreign country. It is only natural as Europeans deal with other countries on almost a daily basis because the countries of Europe are so close to each other.

Dealing with our professional staff makes you comfortable and we send the tickets directly to you so there is no chance of a problem when you arrive in London or anywhere in the UK where we sell tickets. There are enough things to preoccupy you without worrying about your theatre tickets.

Ticket Broker's Son Thinks Dad's Service Is A Hit in New York

I managed to get my college son Adam into the fantastic New York Giants vs. New England Patriots football game on Saturday December 29,2007 at 815pm. Although tickets for the now undefeated Patriots were hard to come by, I managed to survey the ticket inventory my company has access to all over the country, and came up with 2 reasonably priced seats for Adam and his college friend. They both saw an awesome 38-35 very close "nail biter" of a game and both called me up before, during and after the event to thank me for providing good seats to a very special game.

In life, often our toughest critics are our own children. When my son asked me last week if it was possible to get 2 seats for this special football game, I told him our company could get him and his friend in now easier than ever before, and at a reasonable price. As I started thinking about what I had told Adam, I realized that this is exactly how Applause Theatre and Entertainment Service has been in the ticket business for over 20 years now. By simply treating people fairly and giving great personal service.

I told Adam, "when you treat people fairly in the ticket business, get people good seats at reasonable prices, they value you as a supplier, and our customers send us their friends, relatives and co-workers". I'm pretty sure my son will be telling lots of other kids at school at how his dad got him into the Giants vs. Patriots game this weekend. Hopefully the kids will tell their parents and they will tell their friends and so on.

Anyway, our company has been in the theatre ticket business for a long time now. These days, our resources allow us to have millions of tickets at our fingertips for events all over the country. So if you need tickets to events outside of New York, you might want to go check out , for tickets in London you might want to check out or if you are on a limited budget and need tickets to Broadway, you can check out .

I'm glad my son and his friend had a great time tonight. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to help someone else's friend or relative see a major event or attraction they want to, and at a fair price as well.

We hope those of you reading our ongoing Ticket News Blogs will forward our interesting ticket news along to those people in your life who might be able to use a service like Applause Theatre and Entertainment Service . Checkout when you have a chance and ask for Rich G., also known as The Ticket Man. Oh, feel free to ask for Adam's dad as well.

In The Heights on Broadway-Applause Theatre Service Has Amazing Seats

For those of you theatre lover's that might be interested in seeing a new Broadway musical about a few days in the lives of people that live in Washington Heights in New York, you are in for a real treat indeed. The show is a very hip, vibrant and modern musical about a very close-nit neighborhood at the top of the island of Manhattan, in New York City. It's a place where there is no Starbucks, where people buy their coffee from the local bodega and the people leave their windows open all the time.

The music was written by the star of the show, Lin-Manuel Miranda. In The Heights arrives on Broadway and plays its first preview performance on February 14, 2008 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. The show originally played Off Broadway at the 37 Arts Theatre and received the 2007 Outer Critic's Circle and Lucille Lortel Awards for Outstanding Musical and was also nominated for the 2007 Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Music and Outstanding Lyrics.

Right now you can check out and if you like what you read, simply call Applause at 212-307-7050 or 1-800-451-9930 and ask for Rich's "insider's ticket prices" for In The Heights.

Enjoy the show. We know you will.

August:Osage County on Broadway-Applause Theatre Service Has Amazing Seats

August:Osage County opened on Broadway on December 4, 2007 to rave reviews. It is a limited engagement on Broadway that came from an exciting sold-out run at Chicago's Tony Award-Winning Steppenwolf Theatre. This new play was written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Tracy Letts and has been hailed by The New York Times theatre critic as "hugely entertaining!"

August:Osage County tells the story of a large extended family that gets together at their rural Oklahoma homestead at a time when the alcoholic patriarch suddenly disappears. The family is forced to face many unspoken truths and family secrets while having to deal with Violet, a pill-popping, very disturbed woman who seems to be at the center of this mystery.

Although this very special piece of theatre is very popular, Applause Theatre Service, located in New York City has some "insider ticket prices" through March 2008. Simply check out the show page at , and if you like what you read, give Applause a call at 212-307-7050 or 1-800-451-9930. Remember to ask for Rich's "insider prices". Enjoy the show.

A Chorus Line On Broadway- Call Applause For Discount Tickets

This revival of one of the greatest shows ever to play in New York City is truly a fantastic story. It takes place in an empty theatre, on a bare stage where the casting for a brand new Broadway show is nearly complete. For these young men and women of the chorus line this is truly the audition of their lifetime. Their one shot to make it big starring in a Broadway musical. They have spent many years training for this opportunity. Their dream wasn't to star in the show but simply to get the job they've always dreamed of, to be a dancer in a hit Broadway show.

Just prior to the director choosing to make his final cut, he asks every one of the 17 dancers to talk about themselves and why they wanted to be a dancer. Each one steps forward and talks about their families, friends, lovers and career desires. The dancers "lay it all on the line" in this often funny yet at times very sad display of humility. When they finish talking, the audition is over and the remaining 8 dancers are selected to be the chorus line.

Applause Theatre Service in New York City has excellent tickets, often at discount prices. Just visit or call 212-307-7050 or 1-800-451-9930.

I saw the show about 30 years ago and again last winter and enjoyed it very much. If you want to see a show that is so clearly tied to what the everyday men and women of many Broadway musicals do every day of their performing lives, get yourself a ticket to A Chorus Line today.

Need Theatre Tickets in New York? Look no more, Applause can help.

If you type a keyword into Google looking for theatre tickets, you will get thousands of results? You may click here and click there but will you get the web site that will ultimately answer your questions? Will you be more confused about where to shop than before you started your search?

Most sites are simply looking to sell you something, tickets in New York for a Broadway show, maybe a dinner add on. It seems as though most of these theatre ticket selling web sites are more or less the same, often wanting people to "buy tickets on line". It may make sense for these companies as everyone likes to do business as easily as possible while making sales. The only problem with this concept is that it only describes "what's in it for the ticket company"? Making a sale no doubt.

At New York's Applause Theatre and Entertainment Service Inc., located at 311 west 43rd street, suite 601, New York, New York 10036, the main focus is "on the customer". Applause offers a personal Broadway ticket service. They don't expect a first time caller or request by email to necessarily make a purchase on the first contact with the company. After all, potential customers need to trust a company first, then maybe make a purchase right?

At Applause , the emphasis is on making a potential customer feel comfortable. They want people interested in their ticket service to judge for themselves that Applause offers a truly reliable ticket service, one that explains what seating and pricing options there are.

One call to Applause at their New York City midtown office at 212-307-7050 or 1-800-451-9930 and you will see first hand what a"personal theatre ticket service" can do for anyone interested in buying Broadway Show tickets. The company is open 7 days a week and there is no voice mail as these local experts are promoting "the personal contact" approach to doing business.

There is no pressure to buy anything. The staff at Applause welcomes your questions and would like to help you obtain theatre tickets or get the information you need when planning a trip to New York City.

Why keep searching and still not get the answers you need when shopping for theatre tickets in New York? Look no more. Call Applause today at 212-307-7050 or 1-800-451-9930. You can ask for Todd, Teresa, Jay, Erik, Carol, Claudia, Bill or Rich

Applause Theatre-The Ticket Brokers Who Care

So what exactly is a ticket broker? To be honest when I first started in this business I wasn’t too sure either. A ticket broker is a business that engages in the buying of selling of tickets. O.K. so maybe that definition is a little general. Here at Applause Theatre and Entertainment we do more than just sell tickets to your favorite Broadway shows. We provide a service. A service, that in my opinion we do better than anyone else. Need help with a hotel? Call Applause. Need tickets to the National Tour of The Lion King? We can get it for you. Maybe you want to know where to eat while you are here. Give us a call and one of our experts will be happy to assist you.

Give us a call at 1-800-451-9930 or 212-307-7050050, or visit us on the web at

Jersey Boys Tickets in New York-Applause Has Amazing Seats

Jersey Boys is one of those musicals on Broadway that comes along maybe once in ten years or so that has everybody talking. I remember seeing the show in previews back in October 2005. There were several times during the show when our party of four wanted to join the cast up on stage and start dancing along to so many of the great songs that Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons made famous. The Jersey Boys was the Best Musical Tony Award winner of 2006 and sells out every performance in New York City.

The story tracks the lives and careers of Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi, blue collar kids who often found themselves on the wrong side of the law in New Jersey. Instead of continuing to get into trouble with the local authorities, the boys decide to write their own songs and try to establish themselves in the music industry as recording artists. They created their very own unique sound and wrote their own music as well. Some of their most popular hit songs are "Sherry", "Big Girls Don't Cry", "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" and "Dawn".

The New York production stars Michael Longoria, Christian Hoff, Daniel Reichard and J. Robert Spencer. Tickets are on sale throughout 2008 but seats are selling very fast, so don't wait.

Although tickets are hard to come by, you can call Applause Theatre Service in New York City 7 days a week at 212-307-7050 or 1-800-451-9930. Information on this show can be found on Applause's award winning web site at .

The Little Mermaid on Broadway-An Amazing New Show

I recently had the pleasure of seeing Walt Disney Theatrical's newest Broadway show, The Little Mermaid, in previews at New York City's Lunt Fontanne Theatre two times in the last month. I really enjoyed this latest Disney Broadway creation very much, maybe even a little more the second time. I sat within ten rows of the stage the first time and in the rear orchestra the second time. The excellent staging of this production made both close and far away seating a great night at the theatre.

The Little Mermaid is based on Disney's very successful movie of 1989 and is very capably directed by Francesca Zambello, who is known for her fantastic work in theatre and opera. The show will feature many of the songs originally written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman (Mr. Ashman died in 1981). Ten new songs were added for this show with the help of Glen Slater.

The Little Mermaid is a great story about Ariel, a beautiful young mermaid who falls in love with Prince Eric (a human). Ariel's father is King Triton (played by Norm Lewis) has forbidden Ariel and her "sea pals" to keep going up to the water's surface as he is afraid the humans will cause harm to them. After ignoring her father's warnings, Ariel and her friends, Flounder and Sebastian the crab keep making their trips. Ariel wants more than ever to become human so she can win the heart of Prince Eric. With this in mind, Ariel pays a visit to her wicked Aunt Ursula, the Sea Witch. Ursula agrees to transform Ariel into a human for 3 days with the agreement that Ariel has to get Prince Eric to kiss her by the end of the third day or give her soul to the wicked Ursula forever.

Ariel is played by lead actress Sierra Boggess, a bright, beautiful and energetic young actress who is sure to have a very successful carreer on Broadway. Since part of the arrangement to become human for the 3 days was that she had to give up her voice, I thought she did a phenomenal job on stage with a gorgeous singing voice and ballet like dance movements.

Prince Eric was played by Sean Palmer, playing opposite Ms. Boggess in a very professianal mannner as her hero. Sherie Rene Scott plays Ursula, The Sea Witch and does an outstanding job whenever she's on satge. Her singing voice is one of the finest ever to be heard on Broadway, in fact, I could swear Ms. Scott has a giant fan club of her own each night I saw her. She brings a "fun like" quality to this role that shows she can take her "wicked" character and add just the right amount of comedy to please everyone in the audience.

Sebastian the crab is played by Tituss Burgess, one of the hardest working and most talented actors on Broadway these days. He aims to please as Ariel's closest friend and his "Under The Sea" brings down the house to thunderous applause. Scuttle the seagull is played by Eddie Korbich and Flounder was played by J.J. Singleton both nights I saw the show. They also od an excellent job.

One of the coolest things I noticed was that most of the cast wore "healy's", which are roller skates that are built into their shoes. This clearly gave you the impression that the "sea people" were swimming. All the actors did a great job on the skates, sort of reminds me of the uniqueness of Starlight Express, which played on Broadway many years ago.

I have had the pleasure of seeing all of Disney's shows on Broadway since they came to New York more than 10 years a go. The Little Mermaid is another beautifully orchestrated show which has all the elements of great theatre- an extremely talented cast, great music, a book that is easy to follow, unique costumes, some very good choreography, but most of has heart.

Sometimes people think that they aren't interested in seeing a particular show because they might not like the story line, or the actors or maybe even because they hear it is a show by Disney. Let me tell you now, do yourself a favor and buy some tickets to The Little Mermaid. You very well could see the show that becomes the "hit Broadway show" of the season.

If you need tickets, you can call the friendly people at Applause Theatre Service in New York City at 212-307-7050 or 1-800-451-9930 or go to . Just mention my name, maybe they'll give you a discount if you ask.

I started the year out by seeing Spring Awakening for the fourth time and now as the year comes to a close I am trying to figure out what show to see to round out 2007. Maybe Rent? Yes I love the show but that would be number twenty-four for me. How about Phantom of the Opera? I haven’t seen it since 1993. I enjoyed it back then so maybe it’s time to see how this Broadway institution is holding up. Excluding a dinner theatre production of A Chorus Line in high school I have never seen the show on Broadway. That is an option too. Who says I have to see a musical? For the first time in years Broadway is alive with some of the best new plays as well as revivals of some of theatres greatest dramas. See that’s what is so great about the theatre. So many choices. Which one will you choose? Me. I don’t know yet. But no matter what I can always count on the theatre to give me a night that I will never forget.

Applause Theatre-A Day in the Life of a Ticket Broker

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that when I moved to the big city sixteen years ago 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. Nah, I’m 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. After being here for sixteen years I have acquired a lot of knowledge about this great city of ours. Don’t hesitate to call me with any questions you might have at 1-800-451-9930 or 212-307-7050. I don’t have an extension but since I am the only J. that works here I should be pretty easy to find. And if I’m not here (I do have a couple of days off believe it or not) send me an e-mail at

And if I’m not around, Claudia, Teresa, Erik, Carol, Todd, or Rich are just a phone call a way.

Applause Theatre Gift Certificates

Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming! And all I want is an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200 Shot Range Model BB Rifle. Yeah I know. “You’ll shoot your eye out!” “You’ll shoot your eye out!” O.K. so maybe I’m a little too old for a silly little toy now. But then what to ask for Christmas this year? How about an Applause Theatre Gift Certificate? That way I can order any show I want for any time that I want. Plus it’s a great gift for my friends and family too.

You choose the amount and we will take care of the rest. Give us a call at 212-307-7050 or 1-800-451-9930 or visit us on the web at

Applause Theatre-Avenue Q

It’s been called “Sesame Street meets South Park.” Entertainment Weekly called it “One of the funniest shows you’re likely to ever see.” And USA Today, Time Out New York, Newsday, and NY1, just to name a few, called it the best show of 2003. I personally have seen the show over six times. In fact it was the first Broadway show that my parents ever saw. To this day they still talk about it and that was over four years ago. It you haven’t seen it run, don’t walk to the Golden Theatre. You won’t regret it.

Applause Theatre-Rent

April 24, 1996. I remember that day like it was yesterday. Like most people I first heard about Rent due to the untimely death of its creator Jonathan Larson. After numerous articles regarding his death and the show I decided that I needed to see what the buzz was all about. Well not only did it exceed all my expectations but eleven years and over two dozen viewings later it is still by far the best thing I have ever seen. If you haven’t seen it go now before it’s too late. No it’s not closing but nothing lasts forever. Give us a call at 212-307-7050 or 1-800-451-9930 or visit us on the web at
