Pulitzer Prize And Tony Award Winner Tracy Letts New Play Linda Vista To Open On Broadway This Fall

HR - Tracy Letts.jpgOne of my favorite theatrical experiences of all time was seeing the Broadway production of August:Osage County. The show, which premiered at the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago in 2007, would go on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as the Tony Award for Best Play of the Year. Now here we are twelve years later, and playwright Tracy Letts is headed back to Broadway in a brand new play.

Linda Vista, which premiered at the Steppenwolf Thetare in March 2017, is set to begin previews at the Hayes Theatre on September 19, and play thru November 10. So what is the show about? Well according to the shows website, Linda Vista tells the story of fifty year old Wheeler. His marriage is over, his job is mundane, and the best years of his life appear to be behind him.

A move from the cot in his ex-wife’s garage to his own apartment opens up new possibilities for love and sex—complicated, painful and hilarious. Full of opinions, yet short on self-examination, Wheeler must reconcile the man he has become with the man he wants to be. Well I'm sold. As of now no on sale date has been announced. Be sure to check this website for further updates. Get your tickets to see Linda Vista on Broadway at the Hayes Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Former Talking Head's Frontman David Byrne Headed To Broadway In American Utopia

Image result for american utopia logoGrowing up in the 80's, one of the most bizarre videos that I ever saw was Once In A Lifetime by The Talking Heads. To a ten year old MTV obsessed kid it was strange to say the least.

Now here we are all these years later and the singer of that new wave rock classic is coming to Broadway. American Utopia, which is based on the 2018 album, is set to begin previews at the Hudson Theatre on October 4, with opening night scheduled for October 20.

Featuring music and lyrics by David Byrne, and direction by Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers (Beetlejuice, Moulin Rouge), American Utopia will play a limited run at Boston's Colonial Theatre from September 11-28. Tickets for the sixteen week engagement are now on sale. Not only that, but we are selling it. Get your tickets to see American Utopia on Broadway at the Hudson Theatre.

Academy Award Winner Marisa Tomei To Return To Broadway In The Rose Tattoo

RoseTattoo.JPGWhat's that? A show by one of my favorite playwrights, starring one of my favorite actors, and it's headed to Broadway? I must be dreaming. The Rose Tattoo, written by Tennessee Williams, is set to return to Broadway this Fall at the American Airlines Theatre.

Starring Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei, and directed by Trip Cullman, the show is scheduled to begin previews on September 19 with opening night to be announced at a later date.

Now I'll admit that while I am a huge Tennessee Williams fan, I am less familiar with The Rose Tattoo than I am with some of his earlier work. I guess that's why I am so excited to see it. All I can tell you is that the play won the 1951 Tony Award for Best Play of the Year. Well that's enough for me.

O.K. I guess I can tell you a little bit more about the show. Set in Mississippi, The Rose Tattoo tells the story of Serafina Delle Rose, an Italian-American widow, who after the death of her husband withdraws from not only her family, but the world around her. Now do you want to see it? Get your tickets to see The Rose Tattoo on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Betrayal On Broadway

BetrayalIn the Fall of 2000, I attended a production of Harold Pinter's Betrayal at the American Airlines Theatre. Now to be honest, I only went because it was a free ticket. Well that and I had a huge crush on Juliette Binoche ever since I had seen her in The English Patient a few years before.

Now here we are nineteen years later, and Betrayal is headed back to the stage. This new production, which is being directed by Jamie Lloyd, stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers: Endgame), Zawe Ashton (Velvet Buzzsaw), and Charlie Cox (King of Thieves).

Previews are set to begin at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on August 14, with opening night scheduled for September 5. Oh and did I mention that we are selling tickets for it? Well we are. Get your tickets to see Betrayal on Broadway at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Customer Story

TootsieToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of California. Portola Valley to be exact. Last week, I received a call from a gentleman who was planning a trip to New York with his wife, and wanted to see a couple of shows while they were here.
I asked him how he heard about us, and he said that his travel agent had suggested us. Now that's what I call a loyal customer. Anyway, I asked him when they would be here, and more importantly what they wanted to see.

His choices were two of last season's biggest hits. That's right. I am talking about none other than Ain't Too Proud, and Tootsie. Two of my favorite shows by the way.Now since they were coming in September, I knew availability would be good as things tend to slow down in New York once school begins. Thankfully I was right, as I got them great seats in the Center Front Mezzanine for both shows. Plus the tickets were lower than they were expecting. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
