Coast of Ka-Ching!

From Riedel today:

WHAT'S the hottest ticket in town?

Believe it or not, "The Coast of Utopia," Tom Stoppard's demanding trilogy about 19th-century Russian philosophy.

The VIP waiting list grows longer every day, and ticket brokers are getting $300 on a $100 seat. For the upcoming marathon days, when all three plays are done together, the scalper price is $750 to $800.

Of course, Lincoln Center can't be happy about all this dough going into other people's pockets!

Good thing Stoppard's not a Marxist, eh?

Strange how that makes it sound like the thing's sold out. Fancy premium seats might be gone, but old-fashioned full-price tickets are still available. (I'm saying this because I had a moment of panic reading that, thinking I'd never get to see part 3.)
