What To See In The West End

Image result for london theatre district picsHeading to "Merry Old England" in the coming months? Well of course you are going to see a show or two while you are there right? Right. As we speak there are over ninety plays and musicals playing in the West End. The only questions is which ones do you see? Here's a thought. Why not see all of them? Just kidding of course.

I mean I love going to the theatre. But even I couldn't see that many shows. So what do you see? Well London is home to a little known playwright by the name of William Shakespeare. I know. I know. Everybody knows Shakespeare. In fact he has six different plays currently playing in London. Here is a list of those plays.

As You Like It,
Hamlet
King Lear
Love Labours Lost
Much Ado About Nothing
The Taming of the Shrew

But what if Shakespeare is not your cup of tea? How about a good old fashioned musical? Thankfully London is full of them. Here is a list of just a few of them for you to check out.

42nd Street
An American In Paris
Dreamgirls
In The Heights
Les Miserables
Mamma Mia
Motown The Musical
Ragtime
Stepping Out

Now I know what you're thinking. There has to be more musicals than that right? That is true. However I only listed the ones that are playing exclusively in London. Oh sure you could go see The Phantom of the Opera or Wicked if you wanted too. But you can also see both of those on Broadway as well.

Now what if neither musicals or play's are your thing? How about the Opera or maybe even the ballet? Plus did you know that London has their own Christmas Spectacular? I didn't. Although this one is more of a concert, as opposed to the huge production that has been playing at the Radio City Christmas Spectacular for the past eighty-three years.

That's what makes theatre so great after all. So many choices. Oh and one more thing I forgot to mention. We sell everyone of those shows that I mentioned, plus every other show and event in London. Who knew? So what not give us a try? You'll be glad you did. Until next time theater fans.

Tickets For New Musical Amélie Are Now Available

Amelie_Key_Art_HRA couple of weeks ago, I posted a blog about the new musical Amélie coming to Broadway. In the blog I mentioned that we would be selling tickets for the show as soon as it went on sale. Well theatre fans that day has finally arrived.

The show, which is set to begin previews at the Walter Kerr Theatre on March 9, 2017, and open on April 3, is based on the 2001 French film. Now for those of you that are not familiar with the Walter Kerr Theatre, it is one of Broadway's smallest houses.

Therefore I think it will be perfect for such an intimate show like Amélie. That also means that there is not a bad seat in the house. How many theatres can say that? Get your tickets to see Amélie on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theatre. I can't wait to see it. Until next time theatre fans.

Broadway's The Phantom Of The Opera Celebrates Milestone

Wait a minute. The Phantom of the Opera is still playing on Broadway? It sure is theatre fans. In fact in January, the show will celebrate it's twenty-ninth year on the Great White Way. Not only that, but tonight the show will play it's 12,000 performance on Broadway. Pretty impressive don't you think?

When I first moved here, the show was in it's fifth year. Now while I loved the show, I never expected to still be writing about it all these years later. Yet here we are twenty-five years later, and the show is still playing to packed houses eight times a week. Congrats to you Phantom. You deserve it. Until next time theatre fans.

Avenue Q Is Still A Must See

Avenue QThis past Sunday I had the pleasure of seeing Avenue Q. Now mind you it is not the first time that I have seen this amazing show. It was actually my sixth. Although truth be told the last time I saw the show was over twelve years ago. Which incidentally was the night after the show won the Tony Award for Best Musical. What's that? You forgot that Avenue Q beat Wicked for Broadway's biggest prize?

I know. I know. Some of you are still in denial. It's o.k. Luckily both are still playing. Now going into the show I wasn't sure what to expect. Would the show still be as good as it was when I saw it all those years ago? Well I can answer that in one word. No. It was better. Maybe it has something to do with the recent election, or the state of our country right now. Or maybe it has to do with me being at a crossroads in my life right now.

To be honest I have been struggling the last few weeks about the direction my life has been going in. Do I stay in the place I have called home for over two decades? Or do I leave the place that I love to pursue something else? Seeing Avenue Q on Sunday night showed me that everything is not always black and white. Yes it is easy to get defeated and a little scared about what is going on in our world right now. It's only normal. Sometimes you need to see a show like Avenue Q to show you that it's o.k. to laugh, and to help you forget your problems. At least for a little while that is. After all isn't that what theatre is supposed to do? I think Sunday night was exactly what I needed. Who knows? Maybe seeing Avenue Q will do the same for you. Happy Holidays everyone, and be safe out there.

HamiltonYou've all heard of a little show called Hamilton haven't you? Of course you have. After all it's the hottest show to hit the Great White way in years. Now believe it or not, but I haven't seen it. Not that I don't want too. I just think that eating, and paying my rent has to come first. Oh well. It's not like the show is going anywhere anytime soon right? Or maybe I can see it in Chicago? I am from Illinois after all. Maybe I'll check it out during my next visit home. Here's hoping I can get a ticket.

Now I wonder if I know anybody who sells tickets? Oh that's right. I do. Or should I say Applause does. In fact we sell every show in Chicago.

Vice-President Elect Visit's Broadway's Hamilton

That's right theatre fans. Broadway's hottest show is once again in the news. Although this time it's not about how many awards it's won, or about it's creator and former star Lin-Manuel Miranda. This time it's because of a very famous audience member. No, I'm not talking about the first family. They've already seen the show. Twice in fact. Although this gentleman does have a connection to the White House.

Of course I am talking about our future Vice-President Mike Pence. The current Governor of Indiana, attended Friday night's performance accompanied by his daughter and a few of her cousins. Now according to a statement from the Governor, he loved the show. They all did. However as he entered he was booed, as well as cheered as he and his party took their seats. This of course did not go unnoticed by the President-Elect, who expressed his thoughts via Twitter.

 @realDonaldTrump                               
"The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior."
 
 
Just another day at the theater I guess. Bring on 2017.

New Musical Amélie Announces Broadway Dates

Amelie_Key_Art_HRThat's right theatre fans. Amélie is heading to the Great White Way. The show, which is based on the 2001 French film, will begin previews at the Walter Kerr Theatre on March 9, 2017, with opening night scheduled for April 3. Starring in the title role is recent Tony nominee Phillipa Soo (Hamilton).

Prior to it's Broadway premier, the show is scheduled to play at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles from December 4-January 15. So what is the show all about? Well according to the show's creative team, Amélie "follows the whimsical and charming existence of Amélie, a lonely French waitress who decides to act as a secret wish-fulfiller to the people who live around her."

Now while I never got the chance to see Ms. Soo when she was in Hamilton, I did see here a few years ago when she was in Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. She was fantastic. I smell another Tony nomination in her future. Tickets for the show are not on sale yet. However you can bet that when they do, we will be selling them. Get your tickets to see Amélie on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Buying Broadway Tickets From A Licensed Ticket Broker

Image result for free online shopping  logo
Christmas is just around the corner. Which means it's time to do a little shopping right? Now I don't know about you, but I hate going shopping. It's probably why for the last decade I buy all my Christmas presents online. Same thing with Birthday's too.

Now the truth is that most people that purchase Broadway tickets don't live here. Which is why so many on-line ticket companies are so successful, and have been for many, many years. Now that doesn't mean that they are the only game in town.

To be honest there are hundreds of companies out there that sell tickets. The only question you have to decide, is who do you use? Now the problem is that not everyone who sells tickets is legitimate. The key is to find one's that do, and hopefully establish a relationship that will continue to exist in the foreseeable future.

The truth is without repeat business most companies would fail to survive. I know without our loyal customers Applause wouldn't still be here. I always tell people that when buying tickets, or buying anything online for that matter, it is important to shop around.

I mean let's be honest. Broadway tickets are not cheap nowadays. Therefore before you reach for that credit card, you might want to take the time to do your homework first, and find the ticket service that works best for you. After all it's your money right? Until next time theatre fans.

London Smash The Play That Goes Wrong To Open On Broadway Next Spring

That's right theatre fans. One of London's most celebrated new plays is headed across the pond. The Play That Goes Wrong, which won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, is set to begin previews a the Lyceum Theatre on March 9, 2017, with opening night scheduled for April 2. So what is the show all about you ask? Well based on the title, you can probably assume that the play is a comedy. However before your purchase tickets, you might want a little more info about the play. So here you go. Enjoy!

The Play That Goes Wrong TicketsThe Play That Goes Wrong is a highly physical comedy packed with finely-tuned farce and Buster Keaton inspired slapstick delivered with split-second timing. The play introduces The "Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society" who are attempting to put on a 1920s’ murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong… does, as the accident prone thespians battle on against all the odds to get to their final curtain call.

Now I don't know about you, but that sounds like one funny play. So how do you get tickets? Well I suppose you could wait until you get here, and hope that tickets are available. Or you could give one of the friendly ticket experts at Applause a call, and we will get them for you. It's that easy. Get your tickets to see The Play That Goes Wrong on Broadway at the Lyceum Theatre. I can't wait. Until next time theatre fans.

Broadway Production Of Chicago Turns Twenty

ChicagoTwenty years? Where has the time gone theatre fans? It seems like only yesterday that I was sitting in the front row of the Shubert Theatre getting ready to see Chicago for the first time. Now here we are all these years later and the show is still going strong. Not only that, but Chicago is also the longest-running American musical in Broadway history.

Not bad for a show that ran a little over two years during it's original production in the 1970's. Now back then a two year run was considered a pretty big accomplishment. But twenty years? That is unheard of my friends. The only show that has run longer of course is The Phantom of the Opera, which will celebrate it's twenty-ninth year on Broadway in January. But enough about that show. We're here to celebrate Chicago's anniversary after all.

And what better way to celebrate the show then by going to see it. Not only that, but you can now get tickets to see the show at prices that can't be beat. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru April 2, 2017, it is for select seats, and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see Chicago on Broadway at the Ambassador Theatre. You will love it. Until next time theatre fans.

Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet Of 1812 To Open Tonight On Broadway

Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812That's right theatre fans. The Great Comet is ready to take the Great White Way by storm. The show which began previews at the Imperial Theatre on October 18, will officially open tonight on Broadway. Now for those of you that are not familiar with the show, Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812, is actually based on Volume 2, Part 5 of War and Peace.

Set in eighteenth century Russia, prior to Napoleon's invasion, this new musical tells the story of wealthy aristocrat Pierre, who meets the newly engaged but naïve Natasha, and her supportive but scheming cousin Sasha. While Natasha's fiancée and Pierre's best friend Andrey are off fighting for his country, Pierre looks after the two cousin's as the war continues.

As the war rages on, engagements and hearts are broken as new romances begin to blossom. Sounds like my kind of show. Oh and did I mention that the show stars multi-platinum singer-songwriter Josh Groban as Pierre. That is worth the ticket price alone don't you think? Tickets for the show are flying out the door like crazy. Now that doesn't mean you can't get tickets. You just me need to spend a little more, or be a little more flexible on when you see it. Thankfully the show is going to be around for a long while my friends.

Oh and one more thing. They have added on stage seating, where the audience sits at tables, as the action takes place around you. Now that sounds like a lot of fun to me. How about you? Get your tickets to see Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 on Broadway at the Imperial Theatre. Expect the show to be a big contender at next year's Tony Awards. Until next time theatre fans.

New Play The Present To Open On Broadway This Fall

The PresentCate Blanchett on Broadway? Count me in. Oh and did I mention the show is a new adaptation of Anton Chekhov's first play? Well it is theatre fans. FYI, that makes the second Chekhov adaptation of the season, with The Cherry Orchard starring Diane Lane playing on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre. The Present, which is being adapted by Andrew Upton is set to begin previews at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on December 17, with opening night scheduled for January 8.

So what exactly is The Present all about? Well according to the show's official site, The Present takes place at an old country house in the mid 1990'as where a group of friends gather to celebrate the birthday of the very self-efficient but somewhat timid widow Anna Petrovna. As the celebration continues, tales of betrayal as well as unresolved feeling's are exposed, making the evening one that they will soon never forget.

Now that sounds like my kind of show. By the way for those of you who want tickets to see the show you are luck. We sell it. Plus from now you can get tickets to see the show at rates that can't be beat. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru from December 19 thru January 8, it is for select seats only, and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see The Present on Broadway at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

August Wilson's Jitney To Make Broadway Premier This December

JitneyI know what you're thinking. A new August Wilson play on Broadway? How do I get tickets? Now technically Jitney is not a new show. In fact it was actually written in 1979, and given it's first production in 1982 at the Allegheny Repertory Theatre in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

However this is the first time it has been on Broadway. It did play a limited engagement Off-Broadway at the Second Stage Theatre in 2000. Now here we are sixteen years later and the show is set to make it's Broadway debut. The show which is being directed by Tony winner Ruben Santiago-Hudson, is set to begin previews at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on December 28, 2016, with opening night scheduled for January 19, 2017.

So what exactly is the show about? Well according to the show's website, Jitney takes place in a run down gypsy cab station in Pittsburgh in 1977. Unfortunately all of the company's employees are driving unlicensed cabs, aka Jitney's, which causes the city to threaten to close down the business for good. Adding to the drama is the return of the owners son, who's recent release from prison causes even more conflict as the future of the company remains unclear. Now I have been a big fan of August Wilson for as long as I can remember. Therefore I can't wait to see this one. Tickets for the show are now on sale. Not only that but we are selling them. Get your tickets to see Jitney on Broadway at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. I can't wait. Until next time theatre fans.

Now today's blog is to tell you about a new show that is coming to Broadway in the coming months.

It's title? Bandstand. I know what you're thinking. Who's are the going to get to play Dick Clark in this brand new show? Not so fast my friends.

Jacobs Theatre on March 31, 2017, with opening night scheduled for April 26.

Set in the "Big Band" era during World War II, Bandstand tells the story of struggling singer-songwriter Donny Novitski and his fellow army buddies. When a national radio station sponsors a contest to find the next big sensation, Donny and his buddies team up with singer and war widow hoping that a win will change all of their lives. Now that sounds pretty interesting don't you think? Tickets for the show are not yet on sale. However you can guarantee that when they do, we will be selling them.

Tickets For The Broadway Revival Of Miss Saigon Are Now On Sale

Miss Saigon TicketsI can't begin to tell you how excited I am to see this show. As I have mentioned in several of my previous blogs, I grew up in a small farm town in Illinois. Therefore I didn't have a lot of exposure to Broadway, except for the shows I performed in at my local community theatre, as well as my high school productions. Although I did travel to Chicago during my junior year to see The Phantom of the Opera. Shortly after seeing that production, my friend turned me on to a new show called Miss Saigon, which was taking London by storm.

Truth be told I was not expecting too much, as I was, and have never been a big fan of Les Miserables, which as you know was also written by the same composers as Miss Saigon. To say I was blown away would be an understatement. In fact I practically listened to the cast recording almost every day for the next few weeks. Scratch that. Months. I guess I was a little obsessed with it. Cut to over two years later and I finally got the chance to see it on Broadway.

Was I still blown away? You better believe it. In fact over the next few years, I saw the show over a half a dozen times. I even got the chance to see it again when Lea Salonga reprised her Tony Award winning performance as Kim. Now here we are over twenty-five years since it's Broadway debut, and the show is returning again in a brand new production. Not too mention, it's playing at it's original home, the Broadway Theatre. It just get's better and better. Tickets for the show are now on sale. Not only that, but we are selling them. Get your tickets to see Miss Saigon on Broadway at the Broadway Theatre. I can't wait. Until next time theatre fans.
