Customers talk back with Todd


Although it has appealing stars (Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig) this may not be a play for all. I had a customer call today looking for tickets and she said I just loved Hugh Jackman in THE BOY FROM OZ. I told her I could get her great seats for the date she was looking for...however the previous comment made me ask whether she knew anything about the play.

I explained that STEADY RAIN is not a musical and not much like THE BOY FROM OZ.

It is a new play by Keith Huff about love and rage on the streets of Chicago as a domestic disturbance call sends two Chicago cops, friends since childhood, on a harrowing journey that will test their loyalties and change their lives forever. During a routine day, a pair of seasoned policemen, Denny and Joey, return a panic-stricken boy to his guardian. The two protagonists relate their shared story from very different perspectives, giving a picture of family in all its forms, along with the questionable moral choices made in its name. As their lifelong friendship is put to the ultimate test, both men must deal with honor and loyalty in the face of adversity.

It's tough, gritty street language may be shocking to some. It is not recommended for under 15 years of age.

This is not to talk anyone out of what has been hailed as a great new play and must see theatre. It is to prepare people for what they are going in to see.

This particular customer thanked me as she said she was sure that would not be suitable for her and her friend.

If this does suit you, give APPLAUSE a call today to get you the best seats for the best price. Hurray as it is a limited engagement with performances from Sept 10-December 6th, 2009.
