I find it very interesting how Scandalous made more money last week, but went down in attendance significantly. Guess they weren't giving away tickets like they had been.

I'm afraid SCANDALOUS' goose is cooked if that is the best numbers they could put up from Thanksgiving weekend.

Scandalous is going to close Sunday. They have a meeting to announce to the cast tomorrow before the performance.

It is really bad form to post something like that, mybigsplash. If it is true, the cast is entitled to hear it from the production itself, and not read it on a message board.
Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.

Those numbers for Scandalous are simply terrible, especially for Thanksgiving week. Leap of Faith's numbers weren't even that bad. I'd say Chaplin would be next considering their numbers were pretty bad as well. They might stay open for the holidays and close after New Year's.

It's one thing to brag about knowing "inside" information, but announcing on a public forum that a show is closing before the cast finds out is pretty cruel.

I NEVER EVER EVER thought I'd say this, but I feel badly for Kathie Lee. I mean, if promoting a show on network television every day doesn't at least generate enough ticket sales to stay open a couple months...

And before anyone jumps all over me, I really couldn't stand her with Regis but I think she's a fun morning drunk on Today.

If a poster on these boards hears the "rumor", I'm guessing the cast and crew also already know. But it is still rudish.

It's rudish, I guess, but do you really think the cast doesn't know what's up?

Besides, since it was posted here, it's unlikely anyone gives it much credence anyway.

Wicked's closing Saturday. No announcement yet, but a friend of a friend who hands out bottled water to the cast and crew overheard Marc Platt in the men's room last night.
