Customer Story

Come From AwayToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of California. Lafayette to be exact. A couple of days ago I received a call from a customer who was coming to New York in October and wanted to see a show while she was here. Her choice?

One of last season's most celebrated new shows. No it's not Dear Evan Hansen. Although that would be a fine choice. No she wanted to see Come From Away. Once again another fine choice. So anyway, after finding out what she wanted to see, I asked her when she wanted to go and where she wanted to sit.

Well as it turns out, there were only two places she wanted to sit. Either the first row center of the Front Mezzanine, or in the Orchestra on an aisle. Thankfully because she was looking far enough in advance, I figured I would have no problem getting the seats she wanted.

Plus because she was going to be here for a few days, she had a few more options. In the end I got her great seats right where she wanted. The first row center of the Front Mezzanine. Not only that, but it was at a price that was lower than she was expecting. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

Pop Star Ingrid Michaelson To Make Broadway Debut in The Great Comet

Ingrid Michaelson Live.jpgLet me just start off by saying that Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 was one of my favorite shows from last season. The show, which received twelve Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical of the Year, is set to welcome a new addition to it's celebrated cast.

Ingrid Michaelson, the Staten Island born singer-songwriter, will make her Broadway debut in the role of Sonya from July 3 thru August 13. Now I'll be honest, I had to do a little research as I was not that familiar with her work.

Until I went to YouTube that is, and realized not only did I know a couple of her songs, but I actually liked them. Who would have thought? Tickets for the singer's limited engagement are now on sale. Not only that, but you can get tickets to see Ingrid Michaelson at some incredible rates.

Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good from July 3 thru August 31, it is for select seats only, and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see Ingrid Michaelson on Broadway in Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. Until next time theatre fans.

Customer Story

WickedThis week's customer story comes all the way from the "Peach State". That's right. I am talking about the great state of Georgia. Douglasville to be exact. Last week, I received a call from a customer who was coming to New York at the end of the week, and wanted to see a show while she was here.

I asked her what she wanted to see, and her first and only choice was Wicked, as the trip was a birthday gift for her daughter who was turning eighteen. Plus Wicked was her favorite show. Quite the birthday gift don't you think? So anyway after finding out what they wanted to see, I asked her how she had heard of us?

As it turns out a friend of hers had used our service  last week and highly recommended us. In the end I was able to get her great seats in the Front Mezzanine, and at a price that was lower than she had seen on other sites. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

Now for those of you travel agents out there that have never used us, I have some great news.

What To See In The West End

Before I start, I just want to offer my condolences to London and it's amazing people. Tragedies like these are hard to understand. All we can do is find a way to come together and continue to remain strong during these sad times. Now I personally have never been to London. Although truth be told, it has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember.

Here's hoping I get the chance to go very soon. Now for those of you that are heading to London in the next few months, I have some exciting news. We sell tickets to every show. The only question you have to ask is what to see why you are there? As we speak there are over eighty plays and musicals playing in London. Here are a just a few of the shows you might want to check out during your stay.

42nd Street Tickets42nd Street- Based on the 1933 Busby Berkeley movie, 42nd Street is now playing at the Drury Lane Theatre where it is scheduled to play thru February 2018. Featuring a score that includes such classic songs like, "We're In The Money", "Lullaby of Broadway", "Shuffle Off To Buffalo", and it's title song, 42nd Street is one show you don't want to miss.

Dreamgirls-Has it really been thirty-five years since Dreamgirls took the theatre world by a storm? Time sure does fly. Now here we are all these years later and the show is just as exciting as it was back in 1982. The show, which stars television and Dancing With the Stars winner Amber Riley (Glee), opened to rave reviews when it opened at the Savoy Theatre last November. Directed and choreographed by Tony winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Aladdin), Dreamgirls tells the story of the Dreams, three female singers from the mean streets of Detroit, who's meteoric rise soon brings them fame and fortune.

The Simon and Garfunkel Story- What's that you say? Another jukebox musical headed to the stage? What will they think of next? Now I don't know about you, but this show sounds like one that I want to see. I mean who doesn't love Simon and Garfunkel? Featuring such amazing tunes like, "Bridge Over Troubles Waters', "Mrs. Robinson", Sound of Silence", and "Homeward Bound", The Simon and Garfunkel Story is set to begin previews at the Lyric Theatre on September 4. I smell a hit!

Dreamgirls TicketsYoung Frankenstein- You've seen the movie. Now see the show. Based on the classic Mel Brook's film, Young Frankenstein is one of the most enjoyable shows that I have ever seen. The show, which is being directed and choreographed by five-time Tony winner Susan Stroman (The Producers, Contact), is set to begin performances at the Garrick Theatre on September 28. As of now the show is only on sale thru February 10, 2018. Here's hoping the show is well received.

Quiet the lineup don't you think? Oh and don't forget that we sell all of them. Not only that, but 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.

On Your Feet To Close

On Your Feet!Sad news theatre fans. One of Broadway's most exciting shows is preparing to take it's final bow. On Your Feet, which is based on the lives of Grammy winner Gloria Estefan and her husband producer and musician Emilio Estefan, will play it's final performance at the Marquis Theatre on August 20. When it closes it will have played a total of thirty-four previews and seven hundred and forty-six performances.

Now I'll be honest, when they first announced that they were making a musical about the talented duo, I wasn't sure how it was going to do. Don't get me wrong. I love her music. It's just that over the years most jukebox musicals have either been very successful like Jersey Boys and Beautiful, or big flops like Ring of Fire or Come Fly Away.

Therefore there was no guarantee that On Your Feet would be a hit. Cut to a few weeks later, and the show opened to rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. Now while the Broadway production may be closing, the show will not be gone for long. Beginning this Fall, the show will begin a thirty-one city national tour.

There are also plans to open the show in Spain, Italy, Germany, France, Mexico, and Japan. By the way, for those of you who still want to see the show you are in luck. We sell it. In fact 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 August 20, it is for select seats only, and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see On Your Feet on Broadway at the Marquis Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
