Customer Story

Beautiful: The Carole King MusicalEscape to MargaritavilleToday's customer story comes all the way from the "Golden State". That's right. I am talking about the great state of California. Palm Desert to be exact. A couple of days ago, I received a call from a woman who was coming to New York next month, and wanted to see a show while she was here. After finding out when she would be here, I asked her how she heard about us. Well as it turns out, she found us because she had recently purchased the New York Pass.

Now for those of you that are not familiar with the New York pass, it gets you great discounts on museums, shops, tours, as well as theatre tickets. Which is why she called us. So what show did she want to see you ask? Well I'll tell you. None other than Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Good choice don't you think? In the end I was able to get her excellent seats in the second row of the Front Mezzanine, and on an aisle. Another satisfied customer. Wait a minute. Not so fast. Because I got her such a good deal on her Beautiful tickets, she decided to purchase another show.

Her second choice? Well believe it or not but another musical featuring the songs of one of the world's most popular songwriter's. Give up? That's right. I'm talking about Escape to Margaritaville, also know as the "Jimmy Buffet Musical". Although this one is not a biographical musical like Beautiful. By the way, I saw the show a few weeks ago and loved it. So there you have it folks. Two great shows, with great seats and prices to boost. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

Broadway Revival Of Children Of A Lessser God To Begin Performances Tonight

Children of a Lesser GodI can't tell you how excited I am to see this show. Children of a Lesser God, which first premiered on Broadway in March 1980, is making it's first return to the Great White Way since it's original production. Opening night is scheduled for April 11. Now I have never seen a live production of the show. So why am I so excited about it?

Well, it's because I am a huge fan of the film, which starred Academy Award winner William Hurt, and Marlee Matlin in her Academy Award winning film debut. Yes I know seeing a story on the big screen is different from seeing it live on stage. However I think I will enjoy it just the same.

Leading the cast are television and film star Joshua Jackson (The Affair, Dawson's Creek), and Lauren Ridloff, who is making her Broadway debut. The show, which received rave reviews last Summer at the Berkshire Film Festival, is being directed by Tony Award winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin In The Sun).

By the way, for those of you want tickets to see this award winning play, you are in luck. We sell it. In fact we sell every new play and musical this season on Broadway. Get your tickets to see Children of a Lesser God on Broadway at Studio 54. Who knows? You might just see me there. Until next time theatre fans.

Customer Story

HamiltonToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of California. Laguna Beach to be exact. A few days ago I received a call from a woman who was looking for tickets to see Hamilton. You've all heard of that show right? So anyway after finding out what she wanted to see, I asked her where she wanted to see it. After all the show is playing in several other cities besides Broadway.

This particular production was playing in Costa Mesa, which just happens to be less than twenty minutes away from her house. Of course the show was sold out, which is why she reached out to us. In fact it turns out, she called us because a friend of hers had highly recommended us. Now that's what I call a great customer.

Anyway since she was more familiar with the venue, I asked her where she wanted to sit. Her first preference of course was the Orchestra. The only problem was, that she needed three tickets, and the only thing available for most performances were pairs and groups of four. Thankfully after a little research, I was able to find her three tickets together in the Center Loge, which is basically the Front Mezzanine. Plus it was at a rate that was lower than she had seen on another site. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

Customer Story

Escape to MargaritavilleToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of Virginia. Fairfax to be exact. Last week, I received a call from one of our long-time clients who's wife and daughter were planning a trip to New York later this month, and wanted to see a show. Their choice? Why none other than Broadway's latest jukebox musical.

That's right theatre fans. I am talking about none other than Escape To Margaritaville, the new Jimmy Buffett musical. So anyway after finding out what they wanted to see, I asked him when they would be here and of course more importantly where they wanted to sit.

Now I am and always have been more of a Front Mezzanine guy. Although to be honest when I saw the show a couple of weeks ago, I was in Row T of the Orchestra in the center, which was a great view. But like I said, I'm a Mezzanine guy.

Well as it turns out, my customer was a Front Mezzanine fan like me. In the end, I ended up getting them very nice seats in Center Front Mezzanine Row D on the aisle, and at a price that was lower than they were expecting. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

Mean GirlsThat's right theatre fans. One of this season's most highly anticipated new shows is finally here. Mean Girls, which is based on the hit film of the same name, begins previews tonight at the August Wilson Theatre, with opening night scheduled for April 8. Now I love the movie. In fact, I would call it one of the greatest teen comedies of the 2000's.

The show, which features a book by Tina Fey, music by three-time Emmy winner Jeff Richmond, and lyrics by Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) is being directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Aladdin). Quiet the creative team don't you think? Tickets for the show have been flying out the door ever since it went on sale.

But why do that, when you can simply give one of our friendly ticket experts at Applause a call, and we will do all the work for you.

Customer Story

Image result for cirque du soleil one logoToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of California. Palm Springs to be exact. A couple of weeks ago I received a call from a travel agent who's client was planning a trip to Las Vegas and wanted to see a few shows while they were there.

What's that you say? You didn't know we offered shows in Las Vegas? Well we do. So anyway after finding out when they were going to be there I asked her what they wanted to see. Their choices were Criss Angel and Cirque du Soleil: Michael Jackson One.

Now I have never been to a Cirque show before. Just never had any interest I guess. I have however seen Criss Angel. Oh sure he may not be for everybody, but he sure is unique. In the end I got her client's amazing seats for both shows. And at a rate that was lower than they were expecting.

But wait. I'm not done. A few days ago, the same agent called back looking for tickets to another show in Las Vegas for the same client, as they decided to stay in for another day. This time instead of  a more traditional Las Vegas style show, they opted for the Gospel Brunch at the House Of Blues. Now if the Gospel Brunch in Las Vegas is anything like the one here, than they made the right choice. So there you have it folks. Three great shows, with great prices to boot.
