Here's a clip preview originally from the Stratford Festival website (where the show originated). The cast is all pretty much the same, minus Brent Carver as Pilate.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for them ^^. Still bummed that I couldn't afford to see it last summer though (it was so popular that they didn't need the $25 dollar tickets for 29yrs and younger they usually have XP)

I saw the show twice at Stratford and am also wishing them all the best as I don't think I'm going to make it to New York to see them again.

Actually Stratford did have some under 29 tickets earlier in the run, my friend and I went to see the show at the end of July (I think we bought in May? Maybe early June) with these tickets and had a fantastic time. They didn't need to offer any later though, and we went the second time on student tickets. I knew a few of the songs but had never seen the movie so it was mostly new to me, while the friend I went with was a huge fan of the original movie and was worried that she wouldn't enjoy it because she knew the movie cast version so well. At intermission she turned to me and said, "They're all so good!" Needless to say we thought the show and cast were fantastic and I'm thrilled that they've made it to Broadway!

Does anyone know if this production plans on going on tour? So sad to see it leave.
