Wicked Celebrates Fifteen Years On The Great White Way

WickedHas it really been a decade and a half since Wicked took the world by storm? Time sure does fly. Now I saw the show about a week before it opened in October 2003. Did I love it? I kinda did. Now did I think it was going to became a cultural phenomenon that would thrill theatergoers around the world for fifteen years? No. But to be honest I don't think anyone could have predicted that.

After all, the show got mixed reviews. Take that critics. Now for those of you who still haven't seen the show, you are in luck. We sell it. In fact we sell tickets for the London production too. Who knew? Get your tickets to see Wicked on Broadway at the Gershwin Theatre. You will love it. Until next time theatre fans.

Hamilton In Puerto Rico

HamiltonWhat's that? You mean you haven't heard that one of the biggest hit's of the past decade is headed to beautiful Puerto Rico? Well it is theatre fans. Hamilton, which won eleven 2016 Tony Awards, including Best Musical of the Year, continues to play to sold out audiences at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway, as well as London and multiple theatres around the United States.

Now while we sell tickets to Hamilton for the Broadway and touring production, we do not have access to tickets for the London production. Trust me, I was shocked too when I first found out. Now here we are less than three months away from the Puerto Rico production, and it looks like we will not be selling that either.

In fact, the only way to purchase tickets is thru Ticketpop. Also be advised that tickets are being limited to four per person,and you can’t get in unless you’re a ticket holder and match your credit card. Pretty strict I have to say. Now for those of you who can't get to Puerto Rico to see the show, there are still plenty of chances to see it both on Broadway and many more cities in between. Not only that, but we sell it. Get your tickets to see Hamilton on Broadway, or at a town near you. Until next time theatre fans.

The Big Apple Circus Returns To New York City

Image result for big apple circus logo
One of my favorite memories as a child was going to the circus with my Mom and Dad. To be honest, I don't know what I loved more, the amazing acts in the round circle, or all that delicious food.

O.K. O.K.,I loved them both. Now I haven't been to a circus in a long time. However if I ever decide to go again, I can guarantee that the Big Apple Circus would be first on my list.

The show, which first premiered in 1977, is now playing at Lincoln Center Damrosch Park thru January 27,2019. Oh and did I mention that we sell it? Well we do. Get your tickets to see The Big Apple Circus live in well...The Big Apple. Who knows? You might just see me there. Until next time circus fans.

Customer Story

HamiltonToday's customer story comes all the way from the "Lone Star" state. That's right. I am talking about the great state of Texas. Beaumont to be exact. A couple of days ago, I received a call from a travel agent who's client was planning a last minute trip to New York next month and wanted to treat her whole family to a show while they were here.

And not just any show mind you. No, she wanted tickets to one of Broadway's hottest shows. Care to guess which one I am talking about? Well if you guessed Hamilton then you would be right. So anyway, after finding out what they wanted to see I asked her how much they wanted to spend. After all Hamilton is not exactly a cheap show.

Not too mention she needed six tickets for the show. Now after a little research, I found six tickets together in the Center Orchestra. The only problem was it was a lot more than they wanted to spend. Like I said, "Hamilton ain't cheap." In the end, they settled on three pairs in the Orchestra at a much lower rate. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

My Thoughts On King Kong The Musical

King KongLast Thursday, I walked into the Broadway Theatre to see King Kong. Now going in, I had no idea what to expect. Oh sure, I had seen videos from the Australian production, along with clips from the Broadway production as well. And yes, the gorilla, as well as the set was very impressive in both. But let's be honest shall we? You can't hum the scenery no matter how awesome it is.

So anyway, there I was in side Orchestra Row J getting ready for the show to start. Which by the way is still a very good view I might add. Now on to what I thought of the show. I loved it. From the opening number I was transformed to the exciting world of King King. Although truth be told, the magnificent beast didn't rear his head until about thirty or so minutes into the show.

Was it worth the wait? You better believe it. Now about the rest of the show. Did I walk out of the theatre humming the songs? No. But they were good and kept the plot moving along, which is what songs are supposed to so anyway. Plus there were quite a few funny moments, which I was not expecting either. I guess it goes to show, "You can't judge a book by it's cover." All in all it was a great night at the theatre, and if you get a chance, I strongly suggest you see it. Until next time theatre fans.

New Play Hillary And Clinton To Open On Broadway Next Spring

Now before you get too excited, everyone's favorite President and First Lady from Arkansas are not heading to Broadway. Although wouldn't that be the most awesome thing ever?

Hillary and Clinton, which is written by Tony Award nominee Lucas Hnath (A Doll's House, Part Two), stars two-time Tony Award winners Laurie Metcalf (Three Tall Women, A Doll's House, Part Two), and John Lithgow (The Changing Room, Sweet Smell of Success).

Oh and did I mention that it is being directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Assassins, Take Me Out). Quite the lineup don't you think? The show, which first premiered in Chicago at the Victory Gardens Theatre in 2016, also played limited engagements in Philadelphia, Richmond and Dallas.

However in all of those productions, the role of Hillary was performed by an African-American woman. Previews for the show are set to begin on March 16, 2019, with opening night scheduled for April 16. As of now, no theatre has been announced. Stay tuned to this website for further updates. Until next time theatre fans.

Customer Story

PRETTY WOMANToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of California. Arroyo Grande to be exact. Earlier this week, I received a call from a woman who was visiting New York next month, and wanted to see a couple of shows while she and her family were here. Correction. They wanted to see three shows.

So anyway after finding out when they would be here, I asked her how she had heard of us. As it turns out, we were recommended by her travel agent who uses us on a frequent basis. Now that's what I call a loyal customer.

Now since they were going to be here for a week, they were hoping to see a show every other day to allow plenty of time for shopping and seeing the sights. Makes sense to me. So what shows did they want to see you ask?

Well I'll tell you. Her choices were Mean Girls, The Lion King, and one of this season's biggest hits, Pretty Woman: The Musical. Three excellent choices don't you think? In the end I was able to get them great seats in the Mezzanine, and at a price that was even lower than they were expecting. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
