Broadway's Wicked Celebrates Anniversary

WickedHas it really been fourteen years since Wicked took the Great White Way by storm? Well it has. On October 30, 2003 Wicked opened at the at the Gershwin Theatre on Broadway. Since that time, it has played to packed houses eight times a week not only in New York, but at theatres around the world. Now while I loved the show when I first saw it,  I never expected the show would become as popular as it has.

I don't think anybody did. After all, the show got mixed reviews when it first opened. But what do the critics know right? Now for those of you haven't seen the show, you are in luck. We sell it. In fact we sell tickets for the London production, as well as tickets for it's National tour. Who knew? Get your tickets to see Wicked on Broadway at the Gershwin Theatre, or at a city near you. Until next time theatre fans.

Where To Eat In NYC

Image result for restaurant row nyc logoNow we all know that New York City has some of the finest restaurants in the world. In the theatre district alone, there are literally hundreds and hundreds of ones to choose from.

In fact on 46th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues, there are over twenty-five. I guess that's why they call it Restaurant Row huh? Now I don't know about you, but I just love a good steak. Although I have been known to eat Mexican and Italian.

I even like sushi. Well once in a while. But that's what is so great about New York City. There truly is something for everyone. The only thing you have to ask yourself is which one do you choose? Well thanks to the experts at Applause Theatre and Entertainment Service, we can do the work for you.

Not only have we been to many of these restaurants, but we know which ones to avoid as well. Let's face it. There is nothing worse than going to a restaurant that looks good and turns out to be a nightmare. Trust me my friends. We have all been there. Plus not only do we know the best places to eat, but also ones that won't cost you an arm and a leg. Until next time food fans.

Jersey Boys To Return To New York Next Month

Image result for jersey boys logoExciting news theatre fans. One of Broadway's most celebrated shows is headed back to the Big Apple. Only this time it's headed Off-Broadway. Jersey Boys, which won the 2006 Tony Award for Best Musical of the Year, is set to begin previews at New World Stages on November 22, with opening night to be announced.

Now when the show was first announced back in 2005, I admit I was a little intrigued. After all I did love the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Although to be honest they were a little ahead of my time. Cut to six months later, and the show opens to rave reviews, and goes on to win award after award.

Now as much as I loved their music, I have never been too big on shows with a lot of hype. It's probably the reason why it took me so long to see Billy Elliot or Hamilton. Three years later I finally saw the show. So I know what you must be thinking. Did I like it? No I didn't. I loved it.

I can't believe I waited so long to see it. That will teach me I guess. Now as much as I loved the show, I assumed that after it closed earlier this year, it would be a very long time before we would see this show again in New York City. I was wrong. Trust me. It won't be the last time. Tickets for the show are now on sale. Not only that, but we are selling it. Get your tickets to see Jersey Boys at New World Stages. Until next time theatre fans.

Customer Story

AladdinToday's customer story comes all the way from the "Hoosier State". That's right I'm talking about the great state of Indiana. Fisher's to be exact. A few days ago, I got a call from a mother of three who was coming to New York with her family for the first time.

Naturally they wanted to see a show while they were here. So after finding out when they would be here, I asked her what they wanted to see. Well as it turns out, their first and only choice was Aladdin. No surprise there as it is the perfect show for the whole family.

Anyway after discussing prices and seats they settled on five tickets in the Center Mezzanine, which by the way is a great view. Plus the tickets ended up being cheaper than they were expecting. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

Customer Story

WickedToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of North Carolina. Charlotte to be exact. Last week, I received a call from a gentleman who was bringing his family to New York during the Thanksgiving holidays, and wanted to see a show while they were here.

Their choice? One of Broadway's biggest hits of all time. That's right, I'm talking about Wicked. So after finding out what he wanted to see, I asked him where he wanted to sit, and more importantly how much he wanted to spend. After all buying tickets for six people can be expensive.

Thankfully he had the New York Pass, which not only entitles them to discounts on theatre tickets, but discounts on museums, shops, and tours as well. In the end, I got them great seats in the Front Mezzanine, and at a price that was lower than they had seen on another site. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
