Broadway Revival of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf Announces Theatre

Image result for edward albee's who's afraid of virginia woolf logoThat's right theatre fans. One of this season's most highly anticipated shows has found it's home. Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, which was last revived on Broadway in 2012, is set to begin previews at the Booth Theatre on March 3, 2020, with opening night scheduled for April 9.

Directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Wicked), the show stars two-time Tony Award winner Laurie Metcalf, who's role in this production marks her fifth consecutive season on Broadway.

I guess she loves theatre huh? Starring along side Ms. Metcalf is stage and screen star Rupert Everett, who replaces the previously announced Eddie Izzard, as well as Russell Tovey, and 2019 Olivier Award winner Patsy Ferran.

Now for those of you that are not familiar with the show, here is a brief synopsis to tell you a little more. Set over the course of one evening, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, tells the story of long suffering married couple George and Martha, who spend the evening entertaining George's fellow colleague Nick and his wife Honey at their home.

As day turns into night, alcohol, not too mention some hidden secrets soon turn both couples world's upside down. Now that sounds like my type of show. Now for those of you who want tickets to see this classic drama, you are in luck. We sell it. Get your tickets to see Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf of Broadway at the Booth Theatre. Expect the show to be a big contender at next year's Tony Awards. Until next time theatre fans.

Pre-Broadway Engagement Of The Devil Wears Prada To Open In Chicago Next Year

Image result for the devil wears prada musical logoLet me just start off by saying that I have never see The Devil Wears Prada. Don't get me wrong. I love Meryl Streep. I even kind of like Anne Hathaway. But who cares what I think?

After all the movie was a huge hit grossing over three hundred and fifty million dollars at the box office.

The show, which is based on Lauren Weisberger's 2003 novel, as well as the 2006 film, is set to begin performances on July 14, 2020 at the James M. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago.

Directed by Tony Award winner Anna D. Shapiro (August: Osage County), The Devil Wears Prada features music by Tony Award winner Sir Elton John (The Lion King), lyrics by Shania Taub, and a book by Paul Rudnick (Jeffrey).

David Mamet's American Buffalo To Return To Broadway In 2020

Image result for american buffalo play logoLet's see now. A brand new revival of American Buffalo by David Mamet, starring Tony Award winner Laurence Fishburn and Academy Award winner Sam Rockwell. Well I'm sold. The show, which first premiered on Broadway in 1977, takes place over a period of one day in a run down junk shop in Chicago.

Donny (Laurence Fishburn), who owns the junk shop, has recently sold a buffalo nickel to a customer for ninety dollars. Not bad for 1975. The only problem is that the coin may be worth a whole lot more. So what does he do? He cons his young employee Bobby, and his poker buddy Teach (Sam Rockwell) into helping him get in back.

Now I'll admit I was a little underwhelmed by the 2008 production. That one starred John Leguizamo, Cedric The Entertainer, and Haley Joel Osment and closed after twenty previews and eight performances.Not exactly a hit theatre fans.Here's hoping this new production fares a little better. Directed by Neil Pepe, American Buffalo is scheduled to begin previews in March 2020, with opening night set for April 14. As of now, no theatre or on sale date has been announced. Be sure to check this website for further updates. Until next time theatre fans.

Beetlejuice The Musical Is A Must See

BeetlejuiceA few days ago, I got the chance to see Beetlejuice on Broadway. As a matter of fact, it was my second time seeing this amazing show. Now believe it or not, but I have never seen the movie. I know. I must be the only one right? At least that's what my coworkers said when they find out that I had never seen it.

However as it turns out, never seeing the show was a good thing as I had no expectations going into it. Now for those of you who have seen the movie, you will not be disappointed. And for those of you who have never seen it,you will love it. I know I did. In fact, out of all the new shows that opened last season, Beetlejuice was far and away my favorite one.

And this is coming from someone who loved both Tootsie and Ain't Too Proud. By the way, for those of you who want tickets to see Beetlejuice, you have come to the right place. We sell it. Plus if you call right now, you can get tickets to see this zany musical at prices that can't be beat. Get your tickets to see Beetlejuice on Broadway at the Wintergarden Theatre.

Hamilton Tickets On Broadway-At Long Last, Prices Are Finally Coming Down Now

Dear Broadway Theatre Friends


If you still haven’t seen one of the most popular shows ever to play on Broadway, HAMILTON, or if you simply want to see the show again, now’s your chance to do so.  And for allot less money than since it begin playing to sold out audiences at New York’s Richard Rodgers Theater on West 46th Street in 2015.  In 2016, Hamilton was nominated for a record-setting 16 Tony Awards and won 11 of them including the year’s most coveted Best Musical Award.

As a ticket broker for 42 years now, I’ve seen allot of shows that were popular sellers but no one show has commanded the extremely high prices that Hamilton has.  Supply and demand for sure.  Though prices are still high for the premium and mid premium seats that are located up front by the stage, many other seats that offer nice viewing locations are now available, and at very reasonable prices.  And the theater is not very large for Broadway.

Hamilton is an American musical that tells the incredibly fascinating story of Alexander Hamilton, one of our country’s Founding Father’s as well as Treasury Secretary, and his rise from poverty to become one of the nation’s most powerful leaders.  The story is told against the backdrop of America’s War for Independence.

Hamilton is written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who also wrote In The Heights on Broadway several years prior to Hamilton’s debut.  In The Heights won Best Musical honors in 2008.

Hamilton plays to hip-hop music and the cast and creative team has done a beautiful job with the entire production.  With audiences world wide cheering and wanting more at the end of each show.

I hope you’ll consider a call to Applause-Tickets located in the heart of NY City should you be interested in purchasing tickets for Hamilton or one of NY City’s other exciting Broadway Shows.  Whether you need reasonably priced tickets for Hamilton or one of the many  discounted shows playing on Broadway right now, our team of local Broadway ticket experts can help you get the most for your money.

Enjoy Broadway Theater, there’s nothing like it,

2019 Big Apple Circus Is Now On Sale

Related imageOne of my favorite memories growing up was when my Mom and Dad would take me to the circus. I must have gone at least once or twice a year from ages three to ten. Good times. My favorite thing besides the giant elephants, were the acrobatics.

Oh and of course the food.There is nothing better than watching a bunch of people flying thru the air while munching down on a juicy corn dog, or a delicious giant swirl of cotton candy.

Now while it's been over three decades since I sat there under the big top, I hope one day I get the chance to share that experience with my kids. Of course it would probably help if I had a girlfriend or wife first. Good thing I'm still young.

Customer Story

To Kill A MockingbirdToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of South Dakota. Pierre to be exact. Earlier this week, I received a call from a travel agent who's client was planing a trip to New York at the end of this month, and wanted to see a few shows while she and her husband were here. I take that back. They actually wanted to see four shows. Now I love going to the theatre, but four shows in four days? I don't think even I could do that.

Anyway, after finding out when they would be here, I asked what her client wanted to see. Her choices? The Book of Mormon, To Kill A Mockingbird, Ain't Too Proud, and Balanchine at the NYC Ballet. Quite the lineup of shows don't you think? Now since they were only going to be there for a short time, they knew that they would have to see at least two of the shows on the same day.Thankfully, I was able to do that and still leave them plenty of time after the matinee to get a bite to eat before the evening show.Two down. Two to go.

Now when it came to securing tickets for To Kill A Mockingbird, they knew that tickets might be hard to come by. Not too mention expensive. Thankfully, I was able to find them great seats in the Center Orchestra. And at at price that was lower than they were expecting. Three shows down. One to go. Their fourth and final show was Balanchine at the NYC Ballet. Initially when the agent called they wanted to see an entirely different ballet. Unfortunately it wasn't available. However, after I told the agent that this particular ballet was being choreographed by Tony Award winner Christopher Wheeldon, they were very excited as they had seen his production of An American in Paris a few years ago, and loved it. So there you have it folks. Four great shows, with great seats and prices to boot. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?

London Production Of Company Headed To Broadway This Spring

Company_London_Production_Photo_2018_Patti LuPone (Joanne) Company by Brinkhoff Mogenburg_HR.jpgExciting news theatre fans. One of the theatre's most critically acclaimed shows of all time is headed back to Broadway. Company, which first premiered on the Great White Way in 1970, and features an award winning book by George Furth, and music and lyrics by eight-time Tony Award winner Stephen Sondheim, is set to begin previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on March 2, 2020, with opening night scheduled for March 22, which just happens to coincide with Mr. Sondheim's 90th Birthday.

What a way to celebrate huh? Based on the recent award winning London production, this new take on this beloved musical is a little different than previous versions. I take that back. It is a lot different. How you ask? Well for starters, it is now no longer about a confirmed bachelor named Bobby. No, now it is about a confirmed bachelorette named Bobbi. But that's not it theatre fans. Now instead of Bobby being pursued by a trio of lovely ladies named Marta, Kathy, and April, Bobbi, is pursued by a trio of charming men in the form of PJ, Theo and Andy. But wait. I'm still not done. One of the most famous songs in the show is the frantic patter song, "I'm Not Getting Married Today" sung by a neurotic bride-to-be named Amy, on the eve of her wedding to Paul.

Now while Paul is still Paul, Amy is now Jamie. Confused yet? Now while I wasn't sure if this new gender-reversed production would work, I was definitely intrigued. Well obviously it worked, as the show was nominated for nine 2019 Olivier Award nominations, where it won Best Musical Revival of the Year. Oh but wait. There's more. Reprising her Olivier Award winning performance as Joanne is two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone. Not only that, but it was just announced that Tony Award winner Katrina Link (The Band's Visit), will be playing the leading role of Bobbi. Oh and did I mention that the show is being directed by Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse)? It just gets better and better doesn't it? As of now no on sale date has been announced. Be sure to check this website for further updates. Until next time theatre fans.

Broadway Revival Of Caroline Or Change To Open In April

Image result for caroline or change london pictures2004. Quite an interesting year on Broadway. You had two monster hits in the form of Wicked and Boy From Oz, and two critically acclaimed musicals in the form of Avenue Q and Caroline or Change. Although technically you could put Avenue Q in the hit category, as it went on to have a successful run playing both on and Off-Broadway for over fifteen years.

Not bad for a show featuring a bunch of puppets. Oh and of course it went on to win the Tony Award for Best Musical of the Year. Now of those four shows that I mentioned, the only one I didn't see was Caroline or Change. Something I regret to this day, as I have been hearing from my friends and colleagues for years at how great it truly was. Cut to all these years later, and I will finally get to correct that mistake.

Caroline or Change, is set to begin previews at Studio 54 on March 13, 2020, with opening night scheduled for April 7. It was also announced, that reprising her Olivier Award winning performance as Caroline is actress Sharon D. Clarke. Tickets for the show are set to go on sale on November 11. Oh and did I mention that we will be selling them? Well we will. Get your tickets to see Caroline or Change on Broadway at Studio 54. Expect the show to be a big contender at next year's Tony Awards.

New Musical Flying Over Sunset To Open On Broadway Next Spring

Carmen Cusack, Harry Hadden-Paton, and Tony YazbeckQuick question. What does Clare Booth Luce, Aldous Huxley, and Cary Grant all have in common? Give up? Well, if you guessed that they are all featured characters in the new LSD influenced musical Flying Over Sunset, then you would be right.

The new musical, which features music by Tony Award winner Tom Kitt (Next To Normal), lyrics by Tony Award nominee Michael Korie (Grey Gardens), and book and direction by Tony Award winner James Lapine (Falsettos), is set to begin previews at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre on March 12, 2020, with opening night scheduled for April 16.

By the way, this will be the first original musical to play at that theatre since Contact in 2000, which went on to win the Tony Award for Best Musical of the Year. Will lighting strike twice? We shall see. Now in case you are wondering who has been cast to play these three eccentric famous folks, you don't have to wonder any longer.

Playing the roles of playwright and diplomat Clare Booth Luce, writer Aldous Huxley, and Hollywood leading man Cary Grant, are a trio of Tony Award nominees in the form of Carmen Cusack (Bright Star), Harry Hadden-Paton (My Fair Lady), and Tony Yazbek (On The Town). Quite the cast don't you think? An on sale date for tickets has yet to be announced. Be sure to check this website for future updates. Get your tickets to see Flying Over Sunset on Broadway at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Slava's Snowshow To Return To Broadway This November

Working in the industry that I am in, we often get invited to a majority of the new shows. That way when people call us wanting to know what we think about the show, we can give them our honest opinion.Which brings me to today's blog. In December 2008, our staff was invited to a new show called Slava's Snowshow.

Now at the time, all I knew about the show was that it had premiered in Moscow in 1993, prior to a worldwide tour, including a very successful production Off-Broadway, that played for over a thousand performances. It also won the 1998 Olivier Award for Best Entertainment, the 2005 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience, and was nominated in 2009 for Best Special Theatrical Event, losing to EGOT winner Liza Minnelli.

Created and staged by Slava Polunin, who has been called one of the world's greatest clowns, Slava's Snowshow will begin previews at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on November 11, and play thru January 5.Now for those of you who want tickets to see the show, you are in luck. We sell it.Oh and just in case you were wondering, I loved the show. Get your tickets to see Slava's Snowshow on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
