Tale Of Two Openings: Working 9 To Godot

Tale Of Two Openings: Working 9 To Godot

While Vice President Joe Biden is busy dispensing his own personal advice against being in "confined spaces," two of them -- namely Broadway's Marquis Theatre and Studio 54 -- are playing host this evening to the final two openings of the 2008-09 Theatrical Season.

That's right. Both 9 To 5 and Waiting For Godot are opening tonight at the very same time. I mean, what are Joyce Randolph and all the other theatre mavens to do? Seriously, did anyone think to reschedule? And really, what a way to make a living!

This certainly marks the very first time I'm aware of that two Broadway shows have scheduled their openings for the same evening.

Dear readers, are you aware of any opening night conflicts in the Great White Way's storied history, or is this indeed a first?

it's the first time i've ever heard of it before either. and i thought the rule was that two shows couldn't open on the same day. i wonder how they got past that. i know today was the last day for tony eligibility. i guess dolly parton and the roundabout really pulled some strings...
