Hey Billy.
As an XMas present, I want to buy tickets for Hamilton for my niece and mother. The actual performance can be in January or whenever. My niece lives in NYC and my mother in NJ is retired so can go anytime. I just wnat to give my mother the tickets for Xmas.

But
1) I wasn't sure how/how easy it is to get tickets (I'm not too concerned about the price, though don't want to get absurd). Any advice on getting tickets?

2) if I can't get Hamilton tickets, is there anything else on Broadway this Winter which you'd recommend?

I really think my mother, who used to be a school teacher, would love Hamilton. My father just finished reading a bio of Alexander Hamilton, but I think he isn't interested anymore in a 45 minute trip to NYC to see a play.

Any info/advice appreciated . . .

Gromit--I have no help for you on Hamilton. Haven't been able to see it myself as yet though it seems everyone I know has seen it. I can't begin to afford the tickets, which can range into the hundreds of dollars a pop. I try once in a while to score lottery tickets but haven't been successful thus far.

As for other shows on Broadway, I can wholeheartedly recommend The Book of Mormon which is fall-down-funny, and the revival of Oklahoma! which closes January 19 but is groundbreaking and very different from any other production of this much-produced show I've ever seen. I've seen it twice and absolutely love it.

Thanks for the reply.
Book of Mormon sounds pretty good.

For an Xmas present $400 for 2 tickets is acceptable, though pricey/silly.
$500? Yikes. Er, maybe .. I guess. But that might just get you into the theater and not even a good seat. Gad, things have gotten expensive.

I'm hoping I can leave this up to my niece to work out and I just fund it.
But it's good to have a backup option (Book of Mormon) in case Hamilton is too difficult to arrange. Thx.

Gee......itís curious that the republicans are convinced that the democrats have been planning to impeach trump from the moment he was elected. Itís so unfortunate that they could never impeach Obama because thatís what they wanted to do from the moment he was elected. Does it all come down to jealousy?

That's been on my mind too--it's as if nobody remembers McConnell saying that his goal was to prevent Obama from getting a second term. Unfortunately for the Republicans, Obama never committed a high crime or misdemeanor.

Another thing that bugs me is when the Republicans keep saying that the Democrats want to reverse the choice of 63 million Americans who voted for Trump. Why doesn't anyone mention the 66 million who voted against him--and for Hillary?

Here's a short film I'm in and of which I'm particularly proud. Only takes about 13 minutes to watch. Go for it if you've a mind to.

McConnell wasn't talking about impeachment.

I loved Wandering Mind. Might watch it again. The reality shift is handled deftly and the ending poignant.

Meanwhile, RIP Lolita.

Thank you so much. And yes, RIP Lolita. Did not know this.

I posted this at Elba, too...

And this is worth breaking through a paywall for:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/people-are-seeing-cats-while-high-out-of-their-minds-these-are-their-stories/2020/01/05/d0ebfb3a-2beb-11ea-bcb3-ac6482c4a92f_story.html

This promises to be my favorite news story of 2020, unless a pretty powerful contender manages to usurp it in the next 11 months, 24 days. [/url]
