I read somewhere years ago that when people see empty seats, subliminally they think something weird like who are these people who didn't bother to come. It's kind of a corollary to when people pick up their belongings and walk out at intermission, often feeling the need to say something audible about why they're leaving for some reason.   Strangely, it's often the freebies who were offered tickets especially to make the event look more popular than it is; and then, they openly crap of the show.

Keith purchased the best available seats possible for William Shatner getting as close as possible for me to hear him better.  We both wondered then why there was a group of empty seats a number of rows in front of us.

I can answer that.  It's to make raise money for the theatre, a full (paying) house being important to that.
Of course bringing in new audiences for the theatre is a benefit, long term.

Seeing Kay Cole perform "What I did for Love" was very special.  I had to go back listen/watch on YouTube to her doing it over 30 years ago.  What a voice, and she is super  tiny.  She still has so much heart and soul.  That my daughter got to sing "One" with her and the rest of the cast was simply, pretty magical. 

Sweet.

Crap. Five hours sleep. I might try for a nap later, which sometimes succeeds, sometimes doesn't.

I would be nice if I could nap through my dentist appointment today.  I get to have 2 teeth filled.  At least they are next to each other.

Patrol went nicely.  Annabelle was petted and praised by our 4th floor neighbor from Israel, and then she got to watch a sparrow and a pigeon forage for food in front of the apartment.  My neighbor Alice, who was caught two years ago in Puerto Rico when Hurricane Maria ravaged it, is in very poor health.  One of her caretakers showed up at the front door and terrified Annabelle, who screamed loudly, jumped onto my back, and literally climbed my back to get to my shoulder for safety.  That ended our patrol.

Stella and Thatch peacefully slept with me most of the night.  At one point I woke up, and I could see Thatch grooming Stella.  All is well.

Jane what did Shatner talk about?

Life, his thoughts on death including his reaction to thinking he was dying from prostate cancer.  He told a story about living in a truck-bed camper after Star Trek ended.

They paper like crazy in NY; they'd rather give industry folks free tickets, than sell at a deep discount. "Everybody"  seems to imagine they're building word of mouth for a tour or later life of the show. 

But on Broadway at least, I hear that has something to do with the "average ticket price" which has become so important in all the reporting, even the real papers. My guess: - if it's low-price, it lowers the average, it it's free, I guess it doesn't count at all???


Ah to be on the paper list....

Ahh...to be near enough to NYC to be on the paper list. ;)

DR vixmom, I wish you'd known about the glasses earlier, too!  The cosy pretty much wiped out what was left of my income from the past three months.  I'm getting anxious because those property taxes are due in two months and I don't know how I'll pay them.  On the other hand, thanks to that income, I've paid off every debt and obligation hanging over my head since last August.  I just don't want to live through all that again.
