"Chicago" is holding its own. Sometimes, this show reminds me of Cher. It's been around for a while and is a survivor. from Roman in Austin, Texas (visiting NYC from March 10-13, 2012)
seeing: (maybe) Other Desert Cities, Chicago, Chicago, Chicago and the first preview of Evita.

a lot of these shows are going to be in for a rude awakening when Ghost, Leap of faith, Peter and the star catchers, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Once, and nice work if you can get it open.

Sister act, Godspell,and prsicilla have been floating under a lucky star that there haven't been the usual amount of musicals on broadway this past winter. I think they are about to get slaughtered as there will be 5 BIG musicals about to open looking at roughly the same demographic they have been selling to. Good Luck.

^same here. a few Tony awards would really be nice, too.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

How to Succeed FINALLY picked back up some. Anyone have a guess as to the running costs of the show right now? My guess is that this is the first week of the Jonas run that the show has turned a profit, and still only a small 20,000 or so one...

And good week for Anything Goes and Phantom. Chicago lost a bit of steam. But really aside from Venus, Sister Act, and Shatner, it was a pretty good week.

The question would be: How much will the producers let Sister Act run in the hole before it finally closes? And God Spell still isn't doing all that great, I would doubt that it will make it through the summer.

Booth0882,
I'm trying to understand your logic. You're saying it's a good week for Anything Goes and a marginally profitable one for How to Succeed. But How to Succeed made 100K more than Anything Goes. You think it costs that much more to run How to Succeed?

Well, the hirschfeld holds about 400 more patrons than the Sondheim, so presumably the show was budgeted accordingly. The Sondheim is about 28% smaller than the hirscfeld, with similarly priced tickets (H2$ actually has tickets priced a hair higher, and has premium seats about 50$ higher). How to Succeed also has a slightly larger cast than Anything Goes (not including swings and standby's: 29 to 26). That would be my rational.

Also with Nick Jonas, you can assume he's being paid significantly more than Sutton Foster is. Add that to what @Booth0882 said, and you can see why H2$ would cost more

The size of the house has relatively little to do with running costs. The productions themselves seem about the same size. I doubt three extra cast members, including the salary diff btw Jonas and Foster, cost 100K. Even if it did, why would the stat for one deserve a thumbs up and for the other merit a meh? If Jonas can keep that gross where it is, I imagine the producers will be happy.

I am always happy to see PHANTOM pull in roughly $1 million a week after 25 years and 10,000 plus perfromances!
