Customer Story

That's right theatre fans. It's time for the customer story of the week. This week's customer comes all the way from Saint Augustine, Florida. Don't feel bad. I've never heard of it either. Anyway this past Friday I received a call from a gentleman looking for tickets to see two shows during the month of June. Care to guess which ones?

Well one is the not only the highest selling show week after week but also the most popular. The other is a new show written by a Tony winning composer and lyricist who is joined by two gentleman who while new to Broadway are no strangers in the songwriting department. Give up? Why it's none other than Wicked and The Book of Mormon.

You've all heard of Wicked right? I dare you to find someone on this planet who hasn't at this point. Now while the other show has only been on Broadway for a few weeks now it is already receiving good word of mouth and is doing pretty well at the box office. Not only that but with the exception of The People in the Picture it is the only new musical set to open this season that is not based on a movie or a real-life person.

Really? Only two original musicals out of ten shows? Pathetic isn't it? So now that I knew what he wanted to see it was time to find out when he and his wife wanted to go and where they wanted to sit. Since they were only going to be here for a few days they would have to see one show one day and one the next.

Luckily for them the days they picked were during the week which meant not only would the seats be better but probably a little cheaper as well. Sure enough I was able to find excellent seats for Wicked in row N of the Orchestra on the aisle and first row center of the Front Mezzanine for The Book of Mormon. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
