I have to wonder how much Saturday's storm affected these grosses.
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.

Chicago will have a new Roxie, Velma, Billy Flynn and Mama Morton on January 12, 2013. I will scream if Amra Fay Wright gets another extension. Granted, she's uber talented, but someone else deserves a chance. Come to think of it... I don't think there's been a celebrity Velma in quite some time. Any guesses as to the next Roxie or Billy Flynn? I hope Christine Pedi gets another chance as Mama Morton. She was awesome in her previous run. from RC in Austin, Texas

Hi Bryan. Shows will remain open as long as they are profitable. Shows can be profitable even if they are not in the top 10. Phantom is usually in the top 10, even after 25 years. This week it was not. However, its weekly nut is somewhere north of 600k a week. Therefore, it is still turning a healthy profit week after week. And you can guarantee it will be in the top ten for Christmas and New Year's week, as well as all summer long in 2014.

Its surprising that despite grosses over $1m a week, Betrayal has yet to recoup, I'm sure it will and I imagine an announcement will be either before it closes. Both Richard III/Twelfth Night and No Mans Land/Waiting for Godot will likely recoup as well.

Mamma Mia! is not looking so hot, I fear for it when the holidays are over.

Didn't the movie come out several years ago? If the grosses do not improve, they would close.
