South Pacific on Broadway is the "hot ticket" this year
Hello theatre friends,
In the 31 years that I have been in the ticket business I have seen shows come and go. Some last a few months. Then there are those like The Phantom of the Opera that are still running 20 years later. You never know. This years "big ticket seller" by far is the 50 year old revival of South Pacific. It seems like just about every 4th or 5th phone call Applause gets is a person requesting seats to this terrific "old fashioned" Broadway Show. That's the good news really. The bad news is that it plays at a theatre with only a thousand seats or so, so of course that is what is making this "hard to get ticket", even harder to get my friends.
There are two pieces of great news though. First, the show plays at Lincoln Center's very intimate Vivian Beaumont Theater. The second piece of great news is if you make a simple call to Applause Theatre Service in New York City you will be able to get great seats. And they won't cost you "an arm and a leg" either.
Applause is open seven days a week throughout the year and has an excellent reputation for its superbly trained and expert sales staff. They don't just push you to buy a ticket as they want to make sure you are completely comfortable with your purchase. If that's not enough, get this friends. They will tell you the really fun places to eat, places to sight-see, shop or even park your car. Applause is known for its dedication to excellent customer service. They're hope is for you to become a customer of course, then recommend their service to friends, co-workers and family as well.
Now back to the topic at hand, South Pacific. I have seen a few hundred shows in my career in the Broadway Show ticket business. I've loved many and South Pacific ranks up there high with many of the great ones of our time.
If you think you might want to see one or more of several other great Broadway Shows, just say the word. there are upwards of around 30 playing almost every night.
Why wait? Call Applause at their office in New York at 212-307-7050 or toll free at 1-800-451-9930. They love to talk theatre and are looking forward to hearing from you soon.
