Special Awards
The Wolves – Outstanding Ensemble
“The superbly talented cast of Sarah DeLappe's debut play—Mia Barron, Brenna Coates, Jenna Dioguardi, Samia Finnerty, Midori Francis, Lizzy Jutila, Sarah Mezzanotte, Tedra Millan, Lauren Patten, and Susannah Perkins—jelled as one, proving that team spirit is just a alive on the stage as it is on the soccer field.”

Special Award to Phil LaDuca
“Proving that character comes from the ground up, the designer's innovative flexible dance shoe ensures that hoofers on any stage remain on point.”

Lila Neugebauer – Sam Norkin Award
“During a season that saw her helm the original works The Antipodes, Everybody, Miles For Mary, and The Wolves, and resurrect the works of esteemed playwrights Edward Albee, Maria Irene Fornes, and Adrienne Kennedy in Signature Plays, director Lila Neugebauer has shown that her dauntless insight into the human condition knows no bounds.”
The Drama Desk nominating committee determined that the Broadway productions of Dear Evan Hansen and Significant Other were ineligible this year, as they were considered in the 2015–2016 season for their Off-Broadway engagements. Indecent, Sweat and Oslo were considered for their Off-Broadway stagings despite also transferring to Broadway this season.
Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 was considered eligible for its design, staging, and new members of the company, but not for book and score as the committee determined them not sufficiently different from its earlier, already eligible Off-Broadway productions.
The Broadway revival of Sunday in the Park with George was not considered in accordance with the wishes of its producers.

Customer Story

The Phantom of the OperaThis week's customer story comes all the way from the great state of Alabama. Andalusia to be exact. Don't feel bad. I've never heard of it either. A few days ago, I received a call from a travel agent who's client was coming to New York next month and wanted to see a show while they were here.

Their choice? Why none other than The Phantom of the Opera. Now by this point I assumed that everyone in the world had seen that show. I guess I was wrong. So anyway, after finding out what they wanted to see and when, I asked them where they wanted to sit, and more importantly how much they wanted to spend.

Now because the show has been playing for almost three decades I knew I would have no problem getting them good seats. In the end, I got them seats in the side Front Mezzanine, and at a rate that was lower than they had seen on another site. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

New Musical Bandstand To Open Tonight On Broadway

BandstandAnother opening. Another show. That's right theatre fans. It's that time again. Time to welcome another show to the Great White Way. Not only that, but it's one of the few new musicals to open this season that is not based on a successful movie. Imagine that? Bandstand, which began previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on March 31, stars two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Bonnie and Clyde, Cinderella), and Corey Cott (Newsies, Gigi).

Plus it is being directed and choreographed by two-time Tony winner Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In The Heights). So what exactly is the show all about? Well I'll tell you. 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. Well I'm sold.

By the way for those of you who are looking to purchase tickets for the show, you are in luck. We sell it. In fact if you call right now you can get tickets to see Bandstand at some incredible rates. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru June 20, it is for select seats, and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see Bandstand on Broadway at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Carousel To Return To Broadway Next Season

Image result for carousel broadway logoNow let me just start off by saying that I am a huge Rodger's and Hammerstein fan. I have been ever since I saw The Sound of Music in the fifth grade. That was the movie version mind you. Not the stage production. In fact the first Rodger's and Hammerstein musical that I saw on stage was Carousel.

Now here we are thirty years later and I will finally get to see it again. Only this time it will be on Broadway as opposed to a hot gymnasium in Southern Illinois. The show, which first premiered on Broadway in 1945, is set to open on March 23, 2018. Starring in the leading roles of Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan, are Tony nominee Joshua Henry (Hamilton), and Tony winner Jessie Mueller (Waitress).

Joining them in this beloved musical is opera legend Renee Fleming as Nettie Fowler. Now that is what I call great casting. Directing the show is three-time Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien (Hairspray), with choreography by Justin Peck, who is currently the resident choreographer at the New York City Ballet. As of now no theatre or on sale date has been announced. Stay tuned to this blog for future updates. Until next time theatre fans.

Kevin Spacy To Host Tony Awards

Image result for tony awardColor me surprised. Now if you'd have told me a couple of weeks ago that Kevin Spacy would be hosting this year's Tony Awards, I would have called you crazy. Don't get me wrong. I think he's going to surprise a lot of people. After all he is a two-time Academy Award winner. Not too mention a Tony Award winner for Neil Simon's Lost In Yonkers. Trust me. He will be fine.

Nominations for this year's Tony Awards are set to be announced by Tony nominee Christopher Jackson (Hamilton, In The Heights), and Tony winner Jane Krakowski (She Loves Me, Nine) on Tuesday May 2 at 8:30am. So far this season there are thirty-six plays and musicals that are eligible for this years awards. Who will win this years top prize? Find out on Sunday June 11 at 8pm on CBS.

What To See In London

Now I'll admit that I have never been to London. It's not that I don't want to go. I just haven't done it. Yet. It's kind of ironic when you think about all of the blogs that I have written on the London theatre scene over the years. Thankfully, I have gotten the chance to see a lot of the shows that got there start in London, before coming to Broadway. Now for those of you that are heading to London, you are in luck. We sell every show in London. Of course the big question is what to see while you are there? As we speak there are over sixty-five plays and musicals playing in London. Here are a few you might want to check out while you are there.

Lady Day At Emerson's Bar and Grill- Starring six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald as music legend Billie Holiday. The show, which will run from June 17 thru September 9, was scheduled to play last year. However due to Ms. McDonald's unexpected pregnancy, the show was postponed until this year. Trust me. This is one show that you do not want to miss.

Bat Out Of Hell- Can I tell you how excited I am about this show? If anything could make me head over to London this show would be it. Based on the multi-platinum selling album, Bat Out Of Hell features seventeen of Meat Loaf's greatest songs including I'd Do Anything For Love, Paradise By The Dashboard Light, You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad, and it's title song Bat Out Of Hell. As of now the show is only scheduled to play for short run. Here's hoping it extends.

Thriller-Live- Now in it's eighth celebrated year, Thriller-Live continues to excite audiences off all ages eight times a week at the Lyric Theatre. Not only does it feature all of Michael Jackson's solo hits, but songs from his days as part of the Jackson 5. Now if that doesn't make you want to see it than I don't know what will. Now I'm a huge Michael Jackson fan. So I'll admit that I was a little skeptical about the show. Then I saw a few clips from the London production. Let's just say that I was quite impressed. Hopefully you will too.

Now as I mentioned, those are just a few of the exciting plays and musicals playing in London. And don't forget, that we sell of all of them too. Just give one of the friendly ticket experts at Applause a call ,and we will do the rest. Also don't forget that Applause is open seven days a week. 365 days a year. That means we are always here to help with all of your ticket needs. Until next time theatre fans.

Customer Story

The Book of MormonToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of Kansas. Holton to be exact. Last week, I received a call from a customer who was planning a trip to New York next month, and wanted to see a show. Her choice? Why none other than the 2011 Tony Award for Best Musical of the Year, The Book of Mormon.

Now I love the show. In fact I've seen it three times. However I do like to advise customers about the content of the show just in case. After all, The Book of Mormon is not for everybody. As it turns out, she had already seen the show in Chicago, and simply wanted to see it again.

Plus because she had the New York Pass, she was able to get a discount on the tickets. Now for those of you that are not familiar with the New York Pass, it is a great deal that gets you discounts on tours and events around the New York City area.

Not to mention a great discount on theatre tickets as well. In the end, I was able to get her great seats in the Center Mezzanine, and at a price that was lower than she was expecting. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

Baseball Season Is Finally Here

Image result for mets logoThat's right sports fans. Baseball is alive in the Big Apple. Now I'll admit, that I've always been more of a basketball fan. However, I have attended several New York Mets games over the years.

Now I don't know if I had anything to do with it, but every time I went to one of their games, they won. Coincidence? I think not. Now of course we all know that New York City has another baseball team as well. Ever hear of the twenty-seven time World Series Champs the New York Yankees?

Of course you have. Oh and did I mention that we sell tickets to each and every game for both the Mets and the Yankees? Well we do. That also includes away games too. Who knew? Listed below are both teams schedules for the rest of the season. Now let's play some baseball. Until next time sports fans.

Group Tickets And Applause Theatre Service

School of RockHaving worked at Applause for over a decade, I have sold thousand of tickets to the theatre. Now the truth is most of our customers are looking for individual tickets, ranging anywhere from one to six tickets. However today I am here to talk about another group of customers. Which is ironic because I am talking about group tickets.

As a matter of fact, in the last few months or so we have seen an increase in the number of people buying group tickets for various shows. From school groups, to travel agents booking multiple shows, Applause sells it all and then some. Need forty tickets for Wicked this Summer? No problem.

How about tickets to see School of Rock or The Phantom of the Opera for less then it's normal retail price? We can offer that too. Plus not only do we sell every event in New York, but all shows and events in London, as well as all major cities in the United States. How many companies do you know that offer that kind of service? Not too many my friends. So why not give us a try? You'll be glad you did. Until next time theatre fans.

Now Is The Best Time To Come To New York And See A Show

Broadway Ticket NewsHeading to the Big Apple in the next few months? Now of course you're going to see a show or two while you're here right? After all we are the theatre capitol of the world.The only question is what to see.

Here's a thought. Why not see all of them? Just kidding. I love the theatre, but even that would be too much for me. As we speak there are thirty-six shows playing on the Great White Way. From A Bronx Tale to Wicked, Broadway is home to some of the most exciting and innovative shows on the planet. That's what makes Broadway so great. There truly is something for everyone.

Not only that, but most of those shows have "Insider Prices", which means you can see some of your favorite shows at prices that can't be beat. Who doesn't love a bargain? I know I do. Also don't forget that Applause is open seven days a week. 365 days a year. That means we are always here to help with all your ticket needs. Until next time theatre fans.

Customer Story

Today's customer story comes all the way from the great state of Arkansas. White Hall to be exact. Last week, I received a call from a very nice lady who was planning a trip to New York, and wanted to see a show. As I do with all of our customers, I asked her how she heard of us.

She told me that she had recently purchased the New York Pass. What's the New York Pass you ask? Well I'll tell you. The New York Pass is a great deal, that gives you discounts on tours and events around the New York City area. Plus of course they get a great discount on theatre tickets as well.

So anyway, after squaring that away, I asked her what she wanted to see. Her choice? The Golden Cockerel. Don't feel bad. I've never heard of it either. As it turns out, it's a Russian Ballet playing at the Metropolitan Opera. Anyway after a little research, I found some great seats in the Center Balcony. Not only that, but they were available at a price that was lower than she expected. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
