Customer Story

That's right theatre fans. It's time for this week's customer story. This past Sunday I received a call from one of my regular customers who was planning a last minute trip into the city and wanted to see two shows while she and her husband were here. Now in all the years that I have been providing her with tickets she has never ordered a musical. So imagine my surprise when she called me looking for two tickets to see Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Even though the show had not officially opened yet it is already selling very well. Luckily I was able to find her two seats in the Front Mezzanine.

Now was it dead center? No. Matter a fact it was all the way on the far side. Now I know what you're thinking. Why would I give one of best customer's crappy seats like that? Pardon my language but side Mezzanine at the Palace Theater are not bad seats. Believe it or not but in most theatres side Mezzanine is usually better than side Orchestra. For one you are elevated so you don't have to worry about people sitting in front of you blocking your view. Plus you know that with a musical there are going to be lots of big sets and large production numbers. Now do see why the Mezzanine is better? So anyway after taking care of Priscilla I asked her what she wanted to see for her second show. Wouldn't you know it but it was a play.

Let me guess. You're shocked right? Care to guess what she wanted to see? Let me give you a clue. It's a show that hasn't been revived on Broadway since it's original production and features an all-star cast. Give up? That Championship Season of course. The show which stars Kiefer Sutherland,Chris Noth,Jason Patric,Jim Gaffigan, and Brian Cox is one of this season's hottest selling shows. Now that doesn't mean I couldn't get her tickets. On the contrary. In fact I was able to get her seats ten rows from the stage on the center aisle. Now those are what I call good seats. So there you are. Two hot shows and good seats to boot. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
