Awesome show to see tomorrow in NYC?

Should we see "Wicked" on Broadway, or something else? My friend and I want to see a show tomorrow, Sunday Oct. 30. She still remembers seeing "Phantom of the Opera" in London with Sarah Brightman. We're pretty sure we can't get in to see "Book of Mormon". Tasteful-ish is important (so, no Avenue Q). Suggestions? [more inside]

Can you walk? You can? Then get out of the damn elevator!

If a building (in New York City) is listed as being accessible for disabled people, are you allowed to ask them if they're disabled before letting them use the elevator and deny them access to it if they say they're not?

Exit Stage Left

Does anyone know if there is, or ever has been, a recognized significance in a character's exiting stage right or stage left? Like, do bad guys typically exit stage left, etc. I know almost nothing about theatre, and this seems like it would be an esoteric trope or something. TIA.

How to get tickets for NYC Shakespeare in the Park

Hi all! NYT covered Shakespeare In The Park 2010 which looks great: It mentions tickets are handed out for free from 1pm on show day. Anyone have experience with how long the queues are / when I should be there to stand a chance? Is 10am early enough? Sadly I'm only here Sat/Sun and we'd probably be angling for Sun. thanks!

It sucks, but how EXACTLY?

Just saw 'Ragtime' the musical. Was really off-put by its preachy, black & white tone. I'm wondering if there's a word this type of entertainment. Where all the bad guys are perfectly bad, all the heroes completely virtuous, and everything absurdly predictable within a certain trite political worldview. I feel like 'melodrama' doesn't quite get to it, and neither does 'propaganda.' The film equivalent would be 'Crash' I guess (not Cronenberg's, of course).
