Wicked Makes History

Wicked
I don't know what it is, but it feels like every year, or every couple of years, I find myself writing a blog about Wicked and it's historic run. From it's record breaking productions around the world, to it's lengthy celebrated run on Broadway, Wicked continues to get more popular year after year. Not only that, but as of July 12, Wicked became the 6th longest running show in Broadway history, surpassing A Chorus Line.

Now believe it or not, but the Broadway production got mixed reviews when it opened. Yet here we are fifteen years later, and the show is still going strong. Take that critic's. By the way, for those of you who want tickets to see the show, you are in luck. We sell it. In fact we sell every show on Broadway. Get your tickets to see Wicked on Broadway at the Gershwin Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

West Side Story To Return To Broadway In 2019

Image result for west side story logoExciting news theatre fans. One of Broadway's most beloved shows of all time is headed back to the Great White Way. West Side Story, which believe it or not first premiered sixty-one years ago, is set to begin previews at a Broadway theatre to be announced on December 10, 2019, with opening night scheduled for February 6, 2020.

Two months of previews for a revival? I guess they want to make sure it's perfect. It was also announced today, that the show is being directed by Tony Award winning director Ivo van Hove (A View From A Bridge, The Crucible), with new choreography by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker.

Yes that's right. This will be the first Broadway production not to use Jerome Robbin's iconic choreography. Now some may not agree with that, but I think it's time to put a new spin on this beloved musical. Here's hoping I am right. Until next time theatre fans.

Theater Etiquette

As a huge theatregoer, what's the worse thing that can happen to you? (Besides losing your tickets or the show closing!)

It, of course, is when a fellow audience member is so distracting you can't enjoy yourself at the show.

In my case, it was my most recent trip to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. As a huge Broadway and Harry Potter fan, I had been waiting for months to see the show. Not only that, but I also had spent a lot of money to see the show as well.

Although I am a complete believer that children should be exposed to the arts, I think the fact that there is an age limit for Broadway theatres is an important thing to be aware of if you have children. I won't get into too many details of the negative experience, but the person who affected my time at the theatre was a child, and wasn't able to be respectful of the other patron in the theatre.

When another audience member is so distracting that you can't enjoy yourself at the show, it is unacceptable.

Here's a few top tips on theatre etiquette:


  1. Be mindful of those around you.
    Don't rustle your snacks too loudly. Please don't talk to your neighbor. Be sure to turn off your cell phone AND smart watches. And no matter how much you love the show, PLEASE do not sing along. Patrons are there to see the actors perform, not you.
  2. Be on time.
    This is the cardinal rule of seeing a Broadway show. Some theatres have very strict guidelines about being late, and some won't let you into the show until a few minutes into the show or even at intermission. However, in many shows after the first overture you're permitted to go in. It can be distracting, so do your best to be on time.
  3. If you're taking children to see the show, go over the theatre rules with them!
    Bringing kids to the theatre is such a fun experience! Make sure they're the right age to see a show, though. If they can't sit through a movie at the movie theatre, a Broadway show probably isn't the best choice for them. Fidgeting happens, even to us adults, but if your child is distracting other people during the show, as a parent you have a responsibility to the patrons around you to ensure their experience won't be ruined. 
  4. If you have to cough, cover your mouth.
    I get it, allergies exist! However, if you cough or sneeze during the show, please don't do it on the neck of the patron in front of you.
  5. Don't record the show or take pictures.
    Although this seems obvious, you'd be surprised how many people in an audience try to record a show or take pictures. I get it, you want to remember this incredible experience you're having at the show. But the magic of theatre is that it's a unique experience every time you see a live show. If you pull out your phone during a show, an usher will most likely swoop in on you with a beaming flashlight. It's distracting for the others around you, and very rude. Just enjoy the experience while you're there!
Have you ever had a negative audience experience at a Broadway show before? We'd love to hear it!

"A Bronx Tale" Set to Close On Broadway

On August 5th, A Bronx Tale will take its final bow. At the time of closing, the show will have played 29 previews and 700 regular performances.

Chazz Palminteri, who's life was the inspiration for the show, joined the cast in May. He is the only actor to play the same role on stage, film and in the musical production of the same show. He is playing select performances until the time of closing.

Palminteri played his one man show of A Bronx Tale on the West coast before bringing it off-Broadway in 1989. The show played New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse before officially opening on Broadway in 2016.

New Musical Head Over Heels Now In Previews

Head Over HeelsThat's right music fans. The 80's are back on the Great White Way. In fact, I haven't been this excited about a jukebox musical since Rock of Ages first took Broadway by storm nine years ago. Head Over Heels, which features the music of 80's pop icons The Go-Go's, began previews last night at the Hudson Theatre.

Now before you start thinking that this is going to be one of those bio-musicals like Jersey Boys or Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, it is not. This new musical, is inspired by Philip Sydney's sixteenth century play Arcadia. Not too be confused with Tom Stoppard's 1993 drama with the same name.

Anyway, this one, features a duke, a mysterious prophecy and two daughters. One of which is mobbed by suitors. The other daughter? Not so much. The show, which is scheduled to open on July 26, is directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening, Hedwig and the Angry Inch), with choreography by Spencer Liff (Falsettos, Hedwig and the Angry Inch).

By the way, for those of you want tickets to see the show, you are in luck. We sell it. Plus if you call right 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 September 30, it is for select seats, and as always subject to availability.

Where To Eat In NYC


Image result for restaurant row picSo let's say you are planing a trip to New York City in the coming months. Now of course you are  probably going to see a show or two, and probably visit a few museums and shops while you are here as well. It is New York City after all. But let's say you get a little hungry in between all of those things. Where do you eat?

Well I guess you could stop by Olive Garden, or one of our many TGI Friday's or Applebees. Don't you dare! They don't call us the "Food Capitol of the World" for nothing after all. The only question is of course where to eat? Well thankfully for you, you have come to the right place.

Image result for nyc pizza picBecause we here at Applause love to eat. I mean who doesn't really? Now I have always been more of a meat and potatoes kind of guy. Although I do love me a good pasta now and then, not too mention pizza. Oh and don't forget barbecue as well as the occasional seafood meal.

That's what' so great about New York City. We have it all. Now for those of you who would like a few suggestions on what a true New Yorker likes to eat, Todd Freeman in my office, has compiled a list of some of the best restaurants to check out while you are here. Not only is the food amazing, but so are the prices. Who doesn't love a bargain? I know I sure do. Happy eating everyone!
