Broadway Shows to Start Previews

If you're a fan of Broadway Theater, then you'll be excited to know that three new shows will begin playing preview performances in New York City this coming week.  They are:

The Father starring Frank Langella and Kathryn Erbe in a play written by Florian Zeller.  The story line is a very interesting one as we have a look at Andre who is a retired dancer who lives with his daughter and her husband.  Or could he be a retired engineer about to receive a visit from his daughter and boyfriend?  Andre can't seem to find his watch as well as he seems to be forgetting things lately.  Sounds interesting, right?

The Father begins previews on Tuesday March 22, 2016 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre in the heart of the theatre district.  The official "opening night" for The Father will be on April 14, 2016.  The Father has previously played in Paris and London.

If you are interested in The Father tickets, please consider a call to my company Applause-Tickets today.  We'd love to help you.

On March 24, 2016, a new show called American Psycho will begin playing previews at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on west 45th Street in New York City.  American Psycho comes to New York City from a completely "sold out" run in London.  American Psycho has music and lyrics written by Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening) with a book written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

American Psycho stars Alice Ripley, Benjamin Walker and Jennifer Damiano.  The show takes place in the 1980's during an era of "excess" on Wall Street.  The show tells us all about a Wall Street banker by the name of Patrick Bateman who has it all-youth, looks, money and everything else in between.  During the day we witness Patrick and his many friends indulging in swanky restaurants, the hottest nightclubs and designer labels.  But at night-time, we get to witness a much "different" Patrick, one who has a much more "sinful"life to live.

American Psycho originally played in London in 2014 and we expect this to be one of the hit shows of the season.  The show will open to critics reviews on April 21, 2016.

Right now, my company has discounted tickets off of our regular list prices, at least until the opening night reviews are filed.

The third new show to start playing next week on Broadway is called Waitress, a new show that stars Jessie Mueller, who was fantastic in the role of Carole King in a show called Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, a few years back.  Jessie's an incredibly talented singer-actress and tickets for Waitress have been selling really well since they went on sale several months ago.

Based on the 2007 film of the same name, which follows a pregnant waitress named Jenna who is unhappily married in the Deep South. Jenna meets a newcomer to the area and takes a chance on possibly her "last attempt" at happiness.

The music is really quite good and diverse and was written by pop singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles. American Repertory originally developed Waitress in 2013 and produced a sold-out run in Cambridge, Massachusetts in the summer of 2015.

Waitress begins previews on March 25 with an opening night set for April 24th at New York's Brooks Atkinson Theatre.  Waitress tickets are also selling extremely well so if you need assistance in obtaining tickets, you've come to the right place.  Consider a call to the wonderful customer service people at Applause-Tickets, you'll be so glad you did.

I hope you enjoyed my blog post on these 3 shows.  Broadway is bustling with new productions to see.  If you'd like to "take in" a  show or two please call us right here in New York City when you get a moment.  We'd love to help you.
