Customer Story

I know. I know. It's been almost two weeks since my last customer story. I'm sure you're all going thru withdrawal right? Anyway this week's story comes from a very nice lady from Wisconsin who is bringing her son into the city for some last minute shopping and to see the lighting of the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center. Which by the way was last night. She wanted to see a show that he would enjoy as it was his first show and not have to mortgage their house to do it. I suggested either Shrek or The Lion King. She thought they would probably enjoy The Lion King more as they both loved the movie and a friend of hers who was recently here raved about it.

Because she was on a tight schedule the only date she had available was Saturday night. One of the most popular nights of the week. Luckily I had two seats left in Row V of the Orchestra. Now before you think that Row V sounds too far back it is not. When The Lion King first opened in 1997 it was at the newly refurbished New Amsterdam Theatre on 42nd Street. That theatre holds almost eighteen hundred seats. In 2000 the show moved to the Minsfoff Theatre which holds about sixteen hundred seats. Now while that may not seem like a lot the new theatre is structured a little differently. You see by being further back in the Orchestra you are not only slightly elevated but being further back you really get a better overall view of everything that is going on.

For those of you who have not seen The Lion King I can tell you that it is a very big show. Now sure you can sit up front but why spend all that money too not see everything. Anyway back to my customer. She took my recommendation and purchased the seats. Plus I was able to give her a discount because she had a NY Pass. For those of you who have not tried the NY Pass I suggest you do. It has discounts for hundreds of things to do and see while in New York. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
