Did you know that when a show opens on Broadway the starting time is traditionally 6:30PM. SO if you want to catch the celebrity guests walk the Red Carpet, just be there by 5PM so that you can get a good position. The stars of the show do not usually walk the Red Carpet. To see them you should stand by the Stage Door at the end of the show and catch them dressed to the nines on their way to the After Party. Don't be upset if they don't have time to sign or pose for photos, as they are usually very excited to get to the party.
Here is a posting I saw on BroadwayWorld.com about the stage door "I'm going to see Grease on Saturday, and had a quick question about the stage door. I read and heard that it is crazy, but when it was mentioned it was an evening performance. I am seeing the matinee. Does anyone know if Max, Laura and the rest of the cast will come out after? I know for some shows that they will just stay inside until the night performance, but I wasn't quite sure about this one.
I can't say for sure, but judging by the noise I heard from down the street yesterday, I think they did come out after the matinee.
I have heard a lot of good things about Grease, and from these press photos I can tell the sets are amazing
