Synopsis:
A 78-year-old Indian woman in New York is the world’s most passionate theatergoer. Nicki Cochrane been going to at least one play every day for more than 25 years. Always taking along her large bags, Nicki is ready to fight for a free seat at any show that’s worth her time. She has developed an array of ingenious means by which she acquires free tickets to most New York theaters. When small talk with the box office managers doesn’t doesn’t get her a free ticket, Nicki stands outside the theater entrance, holding a sign which says „One Ticket Please” hoping that a stranger will have an extra ticket to spare. Disliked by theater staff for her behavior, Nicki prides herself with a staunch dedication to the art. But at what point does dedication turn into addiction? As Nicki rushes around Manhattan from one theatre to the next, we find out about her personality and the choices she has made in order to make a life at the theatre possible.

Reviews:
„Excellent Profile of a Great Broadway Hustler. This documentary follows an elderly lady who stalks Broadway like a vampire seeking cheap tickets, breaking decorum and proudly rocking the standby line in the name of good theatrical taste. It becomes more intriguing to find that our subject, who sees, in her estimation, 500 shows a year (that’s right, more than one a day), is highly educated at Brandeis, Harvard and Oxford. Not bad for a bag lady (literally). The theater staff don’t like her, but it’s not like anyone would take their side. She is not very likable, but who is going to be sympathetic to theater staff with the obnoxious ticket prices that they charge these days? It’s a great testament to living your life following your obsession.”
