We saw the show on March 8th and sat in the Mezzanine, seats B17 and B19 (2nd row, left side). How many ways can I say that my daugher (age 20) and I (age mumble) absolutely loved the show! The songs were tuneful (my daughter has been listening to and singing them ever since), the dialog witty, the acting sly and superb. It was a delightful evening.
Jefferson Mays (plays multiple parts) was excellent and must be exhausted afterwards! And Bryce Pinkham made us root for him even as he made his way through the relatives between himself and the title. His character is much more sympathetic in this version than in the Alec Guinness "Kind Hearts and Coronets" 1950s movie (nonmusical) version.
The orchestra did a fabulous job! This is not a musical in the "over the top" Phantom of the Opera or Chicago way but is a bit more subtle. This not a "all singing, all dancing" type of show nor is it the type to have big show stopper numbers. It is just all good!
After reading reviews here I was a bit worried about the seating (and really it is true that the balcony is scarily high, I read someplace that it used to be the lighting gallery). The Mezzanine was fine and a bargain really at $79 plus taxes and so on (purchased through Broadwaybox.com and printed at home). The theater is beautiful. It is true that the seats are tight. (I had to put my rather large purse down on the floor and then sit down as otherwise I couldn't squeeze it between the seat and front and the edge of my seat.) I am 5' 10" and I was OK but I don't see how my 6' 2" husband would fit. If you are taller or larger try to get an aisle seat. The boxes A & B on the sides of the theater seem to have cushioned individual chairs that I think would give more room but not sure how pricey they are. That said, the seats themselves were comfortable and we had an excellent view of the stage. I made sure to stand up and walk around a bit at intermission. My advice---be sure to use the restroom before the show because I heard the line was waaay long.
Go see it---you won't be sorry! And with the prices of some of the shows I thought this was a bargain. We saw Chicago with Wendy Williams over the summer and I thought this was much better.
PS Those oldsters out there like me may recognize Jane Carr from the old Judd Hirsch sitcom "Dear John" from the late 80's early 90's. I recognized her voice right away. I'm sure she has done many illustrious things since then but that's what I recognized her from.
