What is there in the next two weeks that might benefit shows?

Unlikely that will effect two full weeks...they'll be grateful for a one week jump in sales.

Hopefully Broadway Week offers get some locals out, in addition to those visiting for the stupid bowl this weekend.

I'm so happy to see Twelfth Night/Richard III doing so well. Those shows are a gift to New York City!

"the stupid bowl"?

Now that's a stupid comment. BTW, as many people in the U.S. alone will watch that one game this Sunday as will attend a Broadway show over the next 10 years.

In regards to the "stupid bowl", sports fans and theatre fans aren't mutually exclusive

I for one could not be paid to be anywhere near Times Square this week. I imagine I'm not alone in that. Not sure if football fan tourists are into Broadway, but if they are, I'm guessing it is just the big established hits that will get a surge. They sure as hell ain't going' to sonething like Machinal.

Because you can generalize an entire populous, who happen to share a common love for sports, and accurately predict what shows they will not see? Yeah. Okay.

"They sure as hell ain't going' to sonething like Machinal."

Unfortunately, neither are very many dedicated theater goers which is a shame. But the good news for you Matt is that no one was planning on offering you money to go to Times Square so you need not worry about having to turn down any offers.

While I don't think that shows will see a HUGE gain, this week could potentially be good for business. I have many friends who love football as much as they love theater. Who isn't to say that these people might be taking in a show and the game? There will be people making a weekend out of it and trying to get the whole NY experience from coming to see the game. That said as well, I don't think the Super Bowl is going to be as big of a boost to the city economy as projected. Ticket prices to the game are plummeting daily via brokers, as are hotel rates, and reservations at high-end restaurants aren't as hard to come by as one might think. There are plenty of buy-outs at many places for parties and such, but it will be interesting to see come next week what the final say on the effect the Super Bowl had on NY/NJ actually was economically.

The end of January/beginning of February is typically a really low week in terms of sales for the large majority of shows, so any extra influx of tourists will have an impact on ticket sales.

"they sure as hell aren't going to see MACHINAL"

True. But if the producers advertise enough and have enough people handing out flyers at TKTS, I think we can see big surge in the audience for BRONX BOMBERS. It's too bad ROCKY hasn't started previews yet.

Good to know you'd rather insult than actually engage and respond. Must be easy to live life when you can cherry pick your conversations.

Prices are probably dropping now because most people coming into town for the Super Bowl booked early. That's not the sort of thing you want to wait until the last minute to book. I also think places in NJ booked faster because the stadium is in NJ. I've seen ads on Craigslist of people trying to rent out their homes to tourists for some obscene amounts of money.

My, the football fans here seem to be touchyyyyyyyyyy...

Personally, I've always found it rather strange that we've turned what should be a casual diversion in which people should participate into a multi-billion-dollar industry that people only watch.

But I suppose the movie/TV industry is similar. We're a species that seems to prefer to watch others do things, while we sit, eat, drink, and slowly die.

Broadway is no different.. except that it's no more than a one billion dollar industry.

Comparing theatre to professional sports is like comparing a welfare mother to Bill Gates.

We'll definitely agree to disagree. In the context you set with the previous post, it's much more comparable than you realize and/or are willing to accept.

Personally, I've always found it rather strange that someone can make a dumbass comment about football and the people who call them out on their dumbass comments are being touchyyyyyy

Personally, I've always found it rather strange that there are actually people who walk around with the ridiculous belief that if people enjoy watching sporting events, it means that they can't possibly also enjoy playing sports themselves.

Personally, I've always found it rather strange that some people can't recognize that attending and watching sporting events are an enjoyable form of recreation and have been pretty much since the beginning of time and are a way for people to interact and bond socially about something other than whether someone in a replacement role in a show 35 years ago should have gotten that part.

Personally, I've always found it rather strange that people who wouldn't know a football from a foot rest think they have enough knowledge to comment on it without sounding like an idiot.
