A Day In The Life Of A Ticket Broker

So here I sit on a surprisingly warm Friday afternoon at work trying to find something to blog about. Actually I am waiting for Hurricane Sandy to arrive. Yeah right! I'll believe it when I see it. Everybody was freaking out about Hurricane Irene and it lasted less than two hours here in the city. The other boroughs not so much. That's why I am thankful that I live in Manhattan. Anyway as far as theatre in New York there really isn't a whole lot going on right now as far as new musicals. In fact most of the new shows right now are plays. That is nothing new of course as most of the big shows don't usually open until the Spring is time for the Tony Awards. As of now there are fourteen new shows set to open between now and the end of April. Five of those are new musicals.

The Anarchist-Previews begin on November 13
Ann-Previews begin on March 7
Cat On A Hot Tin Roof-Previews begin on December 18
Cinderella-Previews begin on January 21
Dead Accounts-Previews begin on November 3
Diner-Previews (TBA)
Golden Boy-Previews begin on November 8
Hands On A Hardbody-Previews begin on February 23
Kinky Boots-Previews begin on March 5
Lucky Guy-Preview begin on March 1
Matilda-Previews begin on March 4
Mowtown:The Musical-Previews begin on March 11
The Nance-Previews begin on March 11
Picnic-Previews begin on December 14

Pretty interesting line-up wouldn't you say? Now I'm sure you probably noticed quite a few omission's. Barry Manilow is a limited run as are Elf, The Christmas Story, and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Plus Annie, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Heiress, and The Performers while opening this year have been in previews for the past couple of weeks. So I guess if you want to get technical there are twenty-two shows opening then. Oh well. Now out of all the ones that are set to open the two that I am most excited about our Mowtown and Lucky Guy. One because I love the music and two because two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks will be making his Broadway debut. And no he will not be starring in Mowtown. Although that would be an interesting casting choice don't you think? Anyway it looks to be an interesting season my friends. Which ones will fail and which ones will succeed? We will soon find out. Until next time theatre fans.
