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. Until next time theatre fans.

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.
