Another great week for 'Cinderella'. I was worried about the show opening in a large theatre during the early winter months.

I'm not saying this is terribly meaningful, but I did find it interesting when looking at the Spider-Man history that this was actually the lowest gross they've ever had during a full 8 show performance week.

I know it's the dead of winter and all that, but...just interesting.

Sad how quickly the Cat numbers are dropping. I didn't think it was a great production, but I liked it more than most of the reviewers for sure.

it's been well speculated that Spiderman's weekly nut is roughly $1.2 million. if it continues to dip below that, I'd imagine a closing notice will be in the near future. we'll see how is does in the spring.

Mary Poppins is doing quite well. I wish Disney would extend the closing notice through sping break at least. I just don't see the need to close this show so early in order to make room for Aladdin.

Mamma Mia! numbers aren't great but the gross potential is shocking, it must be heavily discounted, i do wonder whether it'll close or move theatres sooner or later,

How much time could Mamma Mia possibly have left?

ACL, you expect a closing notice for Spider-Man based on your sense that it's almost 200K below its nut for a week or two. And yet you wonder why Mary Poppins is closing since you think it's doing well despite not asserting that you know its nut.

I'd be surprised if the former hasn't found a way to lower its weekly nut to a million and imagine it should be able to run at least until the end of the year.

And the latter isn't closing now because of Aladdin. It's closing because grosses are now too often too far below its nut.

Honestly, every show this week (besides the 3-4 weekly sellouts) didnt do very well.. Rush this weekend was basically a walk-up too.. I dont think this week truly represents the standings of shows right now. Just another case of the winter low months!

When was the last time a musical started previews and in its first full 8-show week grossed a million?

SPIDER-MAN almost did it. CINDERELLA came closer to doing it.

Just out of curiosity, I researched some musicals to see if any did $1,000,000+ in its first 8-show week. In my research, only MARY POPPINS did. THE LION KING, WICKED, NEWSIES, and THE BOOK OF MORMON did not.

VERY strong opening for CINDERELLA. Very strong.

Spider Man did gross way over a million during its first week of 8 show performances during previews, but it had done 5 weeks of previews before (not 8 a week though)

CapnHook, that statistic is not very important. The theaters are so different that it doesn't hold up in comparison. Mormon made over 1 million in its 9th week, two weeks after Mary Poppins did, but has 400 less seats.

The O'Neill has about 700 less seats than the New Am.
