'Judy Garland Spoke to Me': Ben Platt Previews His Upcoming Residency at the Palace

The Tony winner will usher in the reopening of the historic theatre by playing a three-week residency.

ALLEGEDLY: I just took a quick look through all the seating charts on Ticketmaster and my hypothesis is that him (although I don’t think he’s the brains) and daddy and the booker are obviously playing games with the seats. If you look at all the NY July shows they all have the same pattern of seats available so what they’re doing is only releasing set blocks on Ticketmaster, which makes it look like half of the venue is already sold out, but really it’s probably barely an eighth sold. They then moved blocks of tickets over to resale sites where they have them listed with an upcharge on those tickets. So what they’re doing is creating an illusion of demand for the event to increase prices and also covering up the fact that he’s not selling well. So what ends up happening is the people who end up paying the excessive amount will essentially pay for all the other tickets that are either going to get dumped for a really cheap price or they’ll just give them away for free to get asses in the seats.

His tour prices are just as crazy according to Reddit. At one venue, he's asking more than two times Jason Mraz for the same seat. And yet I guess they gave away a bunch of tickets for the Palace show at one of the late night host taping, so SOMEONE on his team is well aware that he's not going to sell out.

"I've always sort of had in my mind this flowery dream of some sort of Broadway moment where I could sing my own music and perform as myself and do some combination of songwriting and storytelling with a theatrical space," he said. "And then the universe kind of intervention element is that the Palace has been being remodeled for a long time and it's finally ready to come back around. And as soon as those two things aligned, it sort of clicked that this might be the moment to really have a Judy Garland moment, as they say!"

"There's going to be a lot for my new album, Honeymind, that I'll sing for the first week," he continued. "I'll sing some stuff from my other records, a couple of musical theater moments, of course, and some honoring of the people that came before me in the Palace, like Judy and Liza and stuff like that.

I also saw him and Noah walking their dog in a park in New York City last week. It was one of those surreal New York moments. A friend and I were sitting on our usual bench, oddly watching Mayor Adams and his entourage about 100 yards away planning something. I then noticed these two guys walking towards us.

Review on Reddit. So this is someone who bought opening night tickets and is familiar enough with his work to know what songs came from what albums, so is presumably something of a fangirl and yet the review is still rather lukewarm, getting 3/5

[quote]The biggest "moments" of the show were probably the DEH cover, the Liza Minelli cover of Maybe This Time, the Kacey Musgraves appearance, and his encore performance of Over the Rainbow.

[quote]I'm not surprised bc it was marketed this way, but I thought it was odd to play so much unreleased music because even big fans couldn't sing along. I thought it sapped some momentum at the start and end, as he began and ended on unreleased songs. I also was surprised he didn't do more show tunes.

Starting and ending a show with an unreleased song, now that's showmanship!

[quote]He did do one cover of DEH, which seems to be a first for his solo shows. It was Requiem, the only one he wasn't on stage for in the show. He explained he felt he couldn't perform Evan songs anymore because he was trying to move on mentally from Evan.

Should've done that before the movie

[quote]And plenty of celebrities there for opening night (Anna Wintour, Dylan Mulvaney, Beanie Feldstein, Bryan D’arcy James, Noah Galvin [duh]).

From a poster at BroadwayWorld:

According to media invites that went out, “this concert residency is not open for review” and is only open “for feature consideration.” That of course won’t stop some outlets from buying their own tickets and running reviews. But it still feels like an unusual decision — even if reviews were decidedly mixed, they could still pull some positive quotes to help sell the tour.

r173 Ben's father Marc Platt is a producer and a big deal in both Hollywood and Broadway, very powerful in the Industry:

[quote]Platt started producing in theatre, before moving into film. He has served as president of production for three movie studios: Orion Pictures, TriStar Pictures, and Universal Studios. Platt has since formed his own production company, Marc Platt Productions, within the Universal realm and continues to pursue creative projects. His company is responsible for the Legally Blonde films and the HBO miniseries Empire Falls.[6]

[quote]Platt has produced a variety of feature films beginning with the 1987 comedy Campus Man. His films include Legally Blonde (2001), Wanted (2008), Rachel Getting Married (2008), Nine (2009), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), Drive (2011), The Girl on the Train (2016), and Cruella (2021). He also produced critically acclaimed films such as Steven Spielberg's cold war drama Bridge of Spies (2015), Damien Chazelle's musical La La Land (2016), and Aaron Sorkin's legal drama The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020), all of which earned him Academy Award for Best Picture nominations.

[quote]Platt has produced numerous productions on the Broadway stage with his first official credit being Wicked earning his first Tony Award for Best Musical nomination. He was also nominated for Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical for Pal Joey in 2009 and Tony Award for Best Play for Indecent in 2017. He won the Tony Award for Best Musical for The Band's Visit in 2018 and for A Strange Loop in 2022.[9] He will also produce the upcoming stage adaptation of La La Land.[10]

He’s responsible for the live action little mermaid and upcoming Snow White…

He must stop invoking the names of Judy, Liza and Bette. He is nothing of the sort. And it's extremely disrespectful to their legacy. Plus, those women were among the most celebrated stars in the entertainment industry and part of the consciousness of the American public before they played the Palace.

And his (or his father's) inflated ego should have been reigned in the first time anyone even uttered the words, "Let's book this kid for three weeks." This is nonsense and foolish beyond words. A weekend or perhaps a week (stretching it) at Studio 54 Below would have been sufficient. Ben Platt's overblown outing at the Palace is not a Broadway show with other actors and singers, a plot, an orchestra, an actual must-see landmark happening, etc. This is one relatively unknown precocious little Jewish boy who is punching way, way, way above his weight...and not ready for a one-man-show at the Palace.

Nor could I see any of Platt's peers who are far more talented booking themselves for three weeks at the Palace including Aaron Tviet, Jeremy Jordan, Andrew Rennells, etc., all of whom are accomplished and equally or better known as Platt.

Hugh Jackman man may be able to pull it off, but I question that even he would have the balls or inflated ego to try. A one-man show for three weeks?! Frank Sinatra, yes. Johnny Mathis, maybe. Michael Buble, maybe, Harry Connick, Jr, maybe. Ben Platt, no.

R261, I saw him and Noah in a New York City park two weeks ago. They looked and acted completely normal.

R263, New York City normal.

Suspicious review also from Reddit. Reads like ChatGPT, which probably means it's a shill. Ben's PR team busy at work trying to save this disaster LOL:

R267 That is an extremely unflattering photo.

by Anonymousreply 273June 3, 2024 9:53 PM

He's a very un-photogenic guy.

R273, His facial hair is not beard material.

She’s giving a bloated booze and pill hound vibe… just like Judy.

R267. What is with Ben Platt and the high-waisted, baggy voluminous pants? He looks like he's sharing wardrobe with Meghan Markle.

Just the fucking ego and hubris of booking The Palace for three weeks. Ridiculous! As others said, three nights at 54 Below would've been appropriate for him.

His father must've spent a fortune on this.

Not sure why NBC feels compelled to keep showing us the barely talented hack. First Kelly Clarkson, then several different hours of The Today Show, now Late Night with Seth Myers. Ughhhhhh.

Hahaha. R175 hates Ben Platt so much that he’s lying that Papa Marc Platt is anti-Zionist/pro-Palestinian.

Not a bit of it. Marc Platt is hugely pro-Israeli. He was trying to get Boots Riley’s representatives to drop him.

I saw the show last night. He's very talented, sweet and a lot of fun. It wasn't exactly what I expected (I was expecting an homage to the theater and the people who performed there over the years), but it was good with some great moments. The theater was 98% full (I was in the mezzanine), not bad for a Tuesday night. He has a lot of very loyal and vocal fans. The one negative, he's very much of his generation in that they like to talk about themselves and their feelings....endlessly. The theater is beautiful, btw.

I’ve been offered free tickets by two different organizations. The show isn’t selling, but is heavily papered.

by Anonymousreply 286June 5, 2024 5:59 PM

If it was 98% full, it’s from giveaways

by Anonymousreply 287June 5, 2024 5:59 PM

It's a papered house. They can't sell the tickets. Nobody gives a shit about nepo baby Ben Platt.
