Superb play. Love it from the beginning to the end. Andrew Garfield is magnificent. Nathan Lane was Marvelous. We were lucky enough to see a couple of celebrities there at the show in the audience.

A line forms outside the theater. It's long,running down the block. Once they open the doors, it moves quickly. I would suggest arriving g at least 30-45 minutes beforehand.
