It’s a fact of life, like death and taxes, that theatre ticket prices are rising inexorably. And now they’ve breached the $1,000 mark on Broadway – no, not through touts or the resale market, but from the official box office.

Tickets for front-row seats at many performances between late November and mid-January for Hello, Dolly! – when Bette Midler leaves the show – have gone on sale online with prices that have been spiked to $998. Once compulsory booking fees are added, the total for that comes to $1,009. Read More

Theatre is necessarily a minority activity: even in London’s five largest theatres – the London Coliseum, London Palladium, Royal Opera House, Theatre Royal Drury Lane and the Dominion – just 2,358, 2,286, 2,256, 2,196 and 2,069 people will be able to watch each performance respectively.

Other commercial West End venues range in size from 432 seats (the Fortune) to 1,500 (the Adelphi), but many important London theatres are much smaller: the Royal Court’s Theatre Upstairs (90 seats), Donmar (251 seats) and Almeida (325 seats) are three of the most high-profile producing venues in London, while the influential and unfunded fringe theatre the Finborough has just 50 seats.

When I came on the scene in 1972,1 think people wanted a hearty, fuller, robust character like myself

“When I came on the scene in 1972,1 think people wanted a hearty, fuller, robust character like myself, because it was in opposition to the skinny little things like Diana Ross that they had been confronted with for years.” (1991, Los Angeles Times) – Bette Midler

Charm is something a lot of today’s young artists could do with.

Charm is something a lot of today’s young artists could do with. Maybe I’ll start a charm school, like they had at Motown. They don’t see it takes more than looking cute and not falling over in high heels. – Bette Midler

What to see on Broadway in 2017: Bette Midler, Amélie and a chocolate factory

If what’s wanted is farce and tragedy, drama and very black comedy, the inauguration of the 45th president ought to be just the ticket. As pertains to theater, the Broadway spring season promises helicopters and gypsy cabs, woodchucks and gentlemen callers, French naifs sand New York sophisticates – a mix of serious art and candy-coated entertainments.

There’s nothing her to rival the playful innovations of the fall – Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812; Dear Evan Hansen; Oh, Hello; The Encounter – and a few too many works are revivals and movie adaptations. But there’s seemingly sufficient variety. Unless, of course, one falls victim to a Groundhog Day-style loop and must repeat the same show over and over, which is actually how a lot of seasons feel.
