    Holy crap, holy crap, holy crap! Wayne is the next town over from me! I'm buying tickets, I am going to this!

    Wow! What an awesome event. I wish it were closer to me! But it definitely sounds like a good excuse to visit. I'll have to check if I can get the time off to make it over there.

    Does anybody know if they will allow photos or videotaping at the event? I'll try to contact them tomorrow to ask, but if anyone knows now, please post here.

    I already asked if there will be any kind of photo ops with the panel guests either before or after. While they said no, I'm sure people will try. I'm sure there's probably not videotaping/photography allowed but it may be possible to sneak some in. I don't know how tight security is going to be for this. I've never been to this college or their events.

    Right - Video cameras are so small these days that you could put one in your jacket pocket! It's likely someone might try, but as you said, it's hard to tell how tight security will be.

    I've had circumstances when I brought along my video camera to certain events with high security. As I approached security, I opened up the camera bag, assuming they would want to look inside. But they didn't - they just let me through. Maybe we'll be lucky and the same thing will happen here.

    Who knows? I'm not really sure about the rules on photography for this shindig, but my dad really, really wants to bring his camera.

    I hate that I don't have any muppet friends in Philadelphia. I'm forced to go to this thing by myself! :cry:

    OK - it may sound cheesy but, I just got my ticket in the mail today and, on top of feeling like a kid who just got the BEST gift [I'm 39] I can't help but feel like Charlie from Willie Wonka when he got his golden ticket. My seat location is in the loge and, at first, I was afraid I was going to be far away. I looked up the seating chart and it's a nice intimate space. Only about 11 rows on the main floor and then I'm 7 rows back in the loge. SWEET! I'm just excited to be able to attend. SO looking forward to this. Hope they have a snow date just in case. One gets paranoid about these things when you live in the Northeast.

    For anyone looking for the seating chart:

    I was the same way when my tickets came! Thanks for the seating chart, I'm also in the loge, in the third row. It'll be the highlight of my winter!

    Lucky you! I would actually be nurvous if it were me to sit to close. Would be a bit intemidated. I know there nice people and I know they don't bite, but well...

    Thanks for the link to the seating chart as well. I am also very concerned about the weather. I reserved a hotel room in nearby Wayne, NJ since it's a nighttime event so it's a lot of back and forth for me and my boyfriend and who knows what the weather will be. I do recall reading somewhere on the college's website to check back on there if it should be canceled due to inclement weather.

    i'll see you all in the loge, then. :) i get giddy just thinking about it! i keep checking the envelope on my bookshelf just to make sure i still have my tickets! i think i might have to give my students a muppet-related lesson that day, b/c no matter what we're supposed to be covering, my mind won't be on it!

    My parents were in town for the holidays, and Mom handed the tickets off to me for safekeeping, since I live about half an hour from Wayne (depending on traffic).

    It looks as if we'll be about 10 rows back from the stage, and I'll keep an eye out for the rest of you guys. Like I said, it'd be nice if we had some way of identifying each other at the forum...maybe I'll bring my press badge or something.

    Looks like I have orchestra row J, which is fine with me. Yeah I might bring some kind of name tag just for introductions. :)
  16. I don't know where they're seating the press, but that's where I'll be :)

    I'm right behind ya, I'm in row K orchestra :)

    Does anyone know if there's any other public transportation out there besides buses that are listed on the website for the college? My boyfriend and I are planning on driving but if the weather ends up being horrendous we're looking for another alternative.

    Just double-checked our tickets - my family and I are going to be in row K, orchestra, too.

    As for public transit, Melissa, it looks like you'll end up taking the bus if the weather closes in. Wayne's on the Montclair-Boonton rail line, but I don't know how feasible that would be, depending on where you're coming from - and I'm not sure how far the university is from the station. Besides, the info we got with our tickets recommends the bus.

    Wait a moment - Steve, are you going to be coming to this after all?
