solid numbers all around, especially for this time of year. Nice Work almost grossing $1 million & Once is back over $1 million.
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.

I knew that once the fall convention season started NICE WORK would start seeing big grosses again. It is exactly the type of show a conventioneer who has spent the entire day in boring meetings will want to see and having Ferris Bueller in the lead doesn't hurt.

Good call, Bobs! I am thrilled that this show seems to be picking up more audience and I think the new marketing with Matthew & Kelli's photos instead of caricatures has helped a great deal. Matthew has done a lot to promote this show. His tv appearances on Modern Family and 30 Rock will also help the box office.

Good for Nice Work. It is still holding some pretty strong numbers.

I am a bit surprised at how good the numbers are all around for this time of year. Hopefully they will last through the holidays.

"I understand the weekly nut for Spiderman is $1.2m.

It is more complicated than that. It may be $1.2 million at full royalties, but contracts with composers, writers, directors, the theater owner and other royalty participants are quite often written in a way that if a show doesn't meet the weekly nut, there are reduced or deferred royalties.

It's not like there are line of shows waiting to get into the Foxwoods (or whatever they are calling it these days).
