Why not both nights? 38 euro seats sound fine to me.
and to this day, she's glided on
always home but so far away
like a word misplaced
nothing said, what a waste

- Not everyone is seeing it both nights, and we need to have a group of at least ten to reserve group tickets.
- I don't think I'm the only one who wants to see it once in a group and once on an individually-purchased ticket.

Ugh, I'm sorry I'm such a horrible procrastinator. I just emailed the theatre back to say we're taking the €38 seats if they're still available.

If you're definitely in for group tickets, please send an email to barricadeday2010@gmail.com to say you're in. Include your forum username and, if you feel comfortable doing so, your real name. (I promise I will keep it private.)

Go ahead and email if you want group seats but your travel plans aren't 100% sure. The tickets will most likely be transferable, so if it turns out you can't make it, another fan can reimburse you the cost of the ticket and go in your place.

I've booked the tickets for the evening of June 6th. At the moment there are about five places still available in the group; the final price is 36€ per ticket. Send off an email to barricadeday2010@gmail.com if you want one, and I'll send you a PayPal request for the cost of the ticket.

The theatre needs to be paid by the end of the month, which means I need to have everyone's ticket money by the 23rd or so.

And again, the nice thing about group tickets is they don't have your name attached. Which means that if your plans change and you can't make it to Paris, another fan can buy your ticket off you.

Wow... damn I discovered this just now. :( What a pity! Is there any chance that there are still tickets available for this? :?

Just a quick update: the theatre hasn't sent me the tickets or any confirmation that they got my payment, so I just sent them an email asking what's going on. The director of my study-abroad program has assured me that this is probably normal, since she went through the same thing trying to book group seats at the Paris opera.

Anyway, they're going to get back to me on Monday or Tuesday.

1. This is great.

2. I think I just wrecked the guest list display with the accents aigus on 'Frédérique'. My apologies! I hope this does not actually mess with any general code. (If it does, I ... will bring a cake? With a marzipan lobster on it? The piece containing which must be won in a competition for the best plaidoyer for Romantic philosophy performed while positioned upside down in a public space? Possibly.)

I'm so mad that I can't go! I tried explaining to my parents that I'll be back in time for graduation, but they're worried that something will happen and I'll be stuck in Paris, not that I'd mine, though. My dad said to make up for me not going to Paris to see it, he'll take me if a tour comes through where I am. And that's a very big if.

There's a tour that's booking right now and is supposed to start in the autumn of this year. They were originally promising it was to be an Equity tour, but they're booking split weeks, so it's really hard to say until things actually start happening.

However, that does mean there will be a US tour starting in the fall with a possibility of hitting Vegas. The previous tour played there several times. (and when the non-Equity Miss Saigon tour was booking touring houses that were usually Equity, one of the stops was Chicago, a year or two after the last Equity tour had been there. So I'm not sure Vegas would be out.)

Something to keep an eye on, anyway.

Nope, you didn't! Just a character-encoding snafu that is now fixed.

The site is gorgeous!

And you know that if you need to employ someone to crank out some tri-colour sashes I can crank out a few. I've got my sewing machine with me here at school, no roommate, no classes on Fridays, and no classes before 12:30 any day. It's going to be a good semester.

Great job Marianne! All that information on getting there and lodging is very helpful.

I am also willing to sew a few sashes. Just tell me when you need them.

Yay Marianne! site looks awesome and Frédérique, I would love you forever if you managed to find a cake with a marzipan lobster on top.

I would be interested in commissioning a tricolor sash, Loony or MamselleMiss- how would you like to work out payment, etc?

Edited to fix some egregious typos. Egad, how on earth did I manage to put down some of those?

Oh, good (re: character-encoding snafu)!

To my unspeakable disappointment, marzipan lobsters appears to be a popular component of some dishes already - there are even instructions on how to make them! (I'm sure they could be made in blue, too. Actually, how about a tricolour set of Hébert I-III?) I probably ought to start practising.

Also, seconding the question re: commissioning sashes.
