Intro, dates and questions . . .

Just dropped in to say "hello" ...

I'm assuming you all know, but the Equus/Broadway website is up now. It's at www.equusonbroadway.com and so far is pretty much a carbon copy of the original site for the London run last year.

I'm going to the first preview performance on September 5th, then again at the end. So far I have tickets for the January 31st (the matinee), February 1st and both shows on February 4th.

I keep hoping they'll make some announcement about stage seating, and if they do (assuming the announcement is that there WILL be stage seating, I'll be trying to go at least one more time, most likely on the trip at the end of the run.

Does anyone here know anything about whether they plan to have stage seating and/or if they are ever going to sell tickets for February 5th-8th?

Forgive my ignorance, but what is stage seating?

Seating right 'on' the stage. The theatre in London the stage seating was at the back of the stage & about 10 - 12 feet up so when you were sitting there you were looking right down onto the performers. While I think it was certainly a better view of the action some of the dialogue was lost as the actors usually had their backs to that section. lol- was more than worth it to sit there tho. ;)

When I saw the play in London, I saw it once from center stalls, and three times from stage seating (both sides and at the back) ... and you are so right facecat, it was more than worth it to sit in the stage seats! The only part of the play where I really felt I'd missed something was during sequence where Alan/Jill were supposedly at the movies and then just after that in the bus stop sequence with Alan's Dad. The facial expressions added a lot of humor to the performance that you missed if you were in the stage seats. I never felt I missed any of the dialogue, but that might be because I'd read the play so many times I probably knew the words by heart.
