Daily Rehearsal: Theo Ubique, Griffin Theatre do well at Non-Equity Jeff Awards

June 5, 2012

- Auditions: you could be in Beauty and the Beast or I Love Lucy, letting your childhood dreams roam free.

- Non-Equity Jeff Awards coverage can basically be gleaned from the following sources: 1. Eric and Andy's tweets 2. Bob Bullen's tweets 3. The actual full show, which you can watch online. Theo Ubique's The Light in the Piazza and Griffin Theatre's Punk Rock did well.

- "They come from far-off lands like New York, LA, and Toronto, singly and in groups, a surprisingly large number of them wearing thin, gold nose rings," writes Tony Adler of the Chicago Women's Funny Festival, which "may be a canny move or a big mistake," placed right before Just for Laughs.

Death of a Salesman on Broadway "has set a record of $499 for the highest ticket price ever charged by a Broadway musical or play, slightly more than the previous record price of $480 that the 2001 musical The Producers charged," reports the New York Times. This prompted Howard Sherman to tweet a variety of ways you could also spend your money to see theater; one example gives a plane ticket to Chicago, plus a ticket to Iceman Cometh. Except it's sold out Howard!
