"How Conveeeeeenient..."

Here's the response some folks are getting when inquiring about those free tix to the NYTW reading/discussions of Caryl Churchill's Seven Jewish Children:

Due to an overwhelming amount of interest from NYTW Members/donors and family of artists, at the moment there are no tickets available for the general public for the three nights of readings of Caryl Churchill’s SEVEN JEWISH CHILDREN.

There will be a waiting list for cancellations. Remaining Tickets will first go to NYTW members on the waiting list and any remaining tickets after that will go to the general public on a first-come, first-serve basis. The lobby will open at 6pm for the general public to form a line for any available tickets.

Well, a nice cozy little discussion that promises to be, with all those "friends of NYTW."

How do you propose they should have done this? Given that they have no play currently running to append 7JC to and no budget for a long run? What do you think would have been fair and appropriate (and manageable)?

Did you go to -- or hear anything about -- the reading at the Brecht Forum?

Not sure why you propose this is sketchy, using "cozy", etc... I'm not saying you don't have reason to doubt or question, I just don't think NYTW is doing anything weird via this policy alone. You may have other inside info...
