Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cinderella To Open In London Later This Year

CinderellaWhat's that you say? A new Andrew Lloyd Webber musical opening in London in 2020? Count me in theatre fans. Although to be honest I'll probably have to wait until it comes here. Fingers crossed.

Now unlike previous productions of Cinderella, this one has a more modern take on the classic tale of a princess who loses her glass slipper. Performances are set to begin at the Gillian Lynne Theatre in September 2020. As of now no on sale date or cast have been announced. Be sure to check this site for further updates. Until next time theatre fans.

Jagged Little PillStill haven't seen Jagged Little Pill on Broadway yet? Well theatre fans, there is no better time than the present. The show, which opened at the Broadhurst Theatre on December 5, features a book by Academy Award winner Diablo Cody (Juno), and direction by Tony Award winner Diana Paulus (Pippin, Waitress). So what is the show all about?

Well, according to a BuzzFeed article on the pre- Broadway Cambridge production, "Jagged Little Pill features a woman, Mary Jane Healy, in a sexless marriage and secretly addicted to painkillers. Her daughter, Frankie, is adopted and Black and has to deal with her mother’s “colorblind” world view. Frankie also explores her queerness with her genderqueer best friend, Jo. The show also features a plot about Mary Jane’s son, Nick, whose best friend is accused of raping one of Frankie’s best friends."

Well it's not Disney that's for sure. Although if I'm being honest, it is exactly the kind of show that I like. And clearly I am not the only one as the show has gotten great reviews from critic's and audiences alike. Now as I mentioned, now is the best time to get tickets for this exciting show. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru March 4, it is for select seats only, and as always subject to availability.

Customer Story

Mean GirlsToday's customer story comes all the way from the great state of Virginia. Richmond to be exact. A few days ago I got a call from a travel agent who's client was planning a trip to New York next month, and wanted to see a couple of shows while they were here.Her choices? Why none other than two of Broadway's most popular shows.

That's right. I am talking about none other than Mean Girls and Dear Evan Hansen. Now since both shows had been playing for a while, I knew I would have no problem getting them good seats. Plus since February is usually considered a slow time in New York, I was able to get them at a much lower price.

Well they loved that. Not only that but I got them seats in the Center Front Mezzanine, which in case you are wondering, is the best view for both shows. So there you have it folks. Two great shows, with great seats and prices to boot. Another satisfied customer. Will you be next?
