Based on the $645K running cost of Cinderella the show should recoup any week now, which makes me wonder how Motown and Matilda still haven't recouped yet despite almost alway making $1million+ a week.

Rocky seems to be finding an audience.

Great early numbers for Violet and Lady Day.

Bridges can't seem to catch a break. I'd imagine it will announce a closing date pretty soon.

"If/Then" has another great week. It'll be very interesting to see if the very mixed reaction it has received from critics will have any affect on it's grosses.

I confess: I thought the producers of Cinderella were completely insane for not closing at the end of last year, but they're really working magic with Jepsen and Drescher. Good on 'em!

^ Same here! I did not think they would pull in strong numbers, but I was wrong.

The lead producer, Robyn Goodman, is very very smart.

Clearly a first preview -- filled I expect with rabid screaming fans (I tried to be one of them but lost the lottery) -- is not much data to work with, but still, pretty impressive numbers for a single performance for HEDWIG at the Belasco, with just 1,000 seats of which 200 are in the balcony. Will be interesting to see if they can keep it up (so to speak).

I wonder if Bridges will even last until the Tony nominations are announced.

Wow, a very good week for so many shows! ALL THE WAY - that's crazy high for a play. Looks like the bigger theatre did help them. Most of the new musicals and revivals are pretty doing well.

We won't be able to tell if the reviews will kill IF/THEN for a few weeks because its advance is pretty good.

BRIDGES is gone, what a shame.

That's not a strong start for Violet - I assume part of the issue is that the Roundabout's subscription fees are too inexpensive.

Is it true that the producers of Bridges took out a loan to keep the show going? (re:article in NY Times). Hope they got a low interest rate because they just flushed money down the toilet. It is one thing to believe in your show, it is another to be in denial about the non interest in your show.

I don't think it hurt Cinderella that it was spring break for many schools in NYC...all independent/private schools were off and it was spring break in other areas as well. Now everyone is back but then NYC public/parochial schools will be off again at Easter Passover..so I would imagine tickets sales will go up then as well.

Legs Diamond had a healthy advance & Peter Allen

Once the reviews came out and the advance disappeared, so did Legs

Who might be a possible Cinderella replacement for Carly? Anna Kendrick, maybe? Wow, the numbers don't look so great for "Mothers and Sons". I'm rooting for it, from afar.

Both Carly and Fran extended til June. They are not just a good business decision, but they are actually great in the show and it feels like a new show with Carly's take on the lead role, and the glamour and humor that Fran brings.

Very good week for many shows, it's interesting that neither Motown and Matilda have recouped but I imagine they will in the next few months.

How can it be that Matilda has not recouped? It has grossed 64M since it opened.

The producers of Matilda spent a fortune on TV commercials. There were many weeks when their grosses were not that exceptional and if the show breaks even at 700,000 a week, then they only made 150,000 or less for some weeks. If it cost 15 million to produce, then it has a few weeks more until it recoups.

^ What I don't understand about Matilda's advertising, is only a tiny bit of the footage in the commercials is acting from the Broadway cast. Also, they still have no pictures of the cast outside of the theater, and the posters in Times Square features the infamous random-Matilda...So IDK how they spent a fortune, as they seem to have previously acquired everything they used.
