I saw the show last night.  Very fun and wonderful performances from everyone.  The scenic designs are cheap looking, but they were serviceable.  It was a rare treat to have a full orchestra. Megan did a terrific job and the audience loved her.  Her voice in the show is similar to the speaking voice I have heard her use in various video clips at NYCB, so she is not feigning the cute little voice.  For my money, I was blown away by the actress that played Hildy. Great voice, perfect comic timing and a charismatic stage presence.   Jackie Hoffman had some terrific, scene stealing schtick.  Go and enjoy.

 

As an aside, I saw former lead NY Times dance critic Anna Kisselgoff in the audience last night.

It's a gigantic theater.  There is no possible way they can fill the house at full price, so I'm not surprised that a signficant portion of the seats are availabe at TKTS.  I'm sure a high proportion of the seats were sold at a discount.
