Two days ago we got a call from the treasure at the Neil Simon Theatre wondering why they hadn't heard from us recently. I said,"We didn't know you guys were open." When a new show like Ragtime opens tickets usually go on sale about a month prior to the first performance. That is when we get our tickets. Not only that but we have access to every seat and at every price range as well. Since we are based in New York we have direct contact with the theatres and can get you good seats and usually at prices that are lower than what you would see online. Anyway back to the reason for my blog. Ragtime which first premiered on Broadway in December 1997 was the first show to open at the Hilton Theatre.
The show which received rave reviews was thought to be the front runner for that years Tony Award for Best Musical. That is until Julie Taymor and The Lion King came along. The show lost the big prize and closed within two years. Now here we are almost ten years later and Ragtime is back on Broadway following a well received sold out production at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.
I find it ironic that in the same year the Ragtime is coming back to Broadway, Julie Taymor is attempting to launch her latest project, Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark. The show which has a rumored budget of over $50 million dollars has been plagued with problems since the beginning. Speculation is running rampant that Spiderman won't see the light of day. Could this be Ragtime's chance to finally get their due? Let the games begin. Until next time theatre fans.
