Even with a 13%+ hike in attendance, HOLLER is still only getting 15%+ of its potential. And at $30 avg tix price, I am kicking myself for the $59 I spent (discounted!) for a seat later this month....
Favorite shows of the 2013 - 2014 season (so far): Fun Home, The Glass Menagerie, After Midnight, The Bridges of Madison County, If/Then, The Most Happy Fella

The height of optimism: Buying Holler tickets several weeks in advance.

In addition to the Fran drop, the week of the Fourth is always the worst week of the summer. It will be significant to see if it bounces back a bit this week. But having said that, it was a huge decline, for sure.

^ I thought that too but I think next week's grosses are better to judge than this week's.

My thoughts exactly.

Ouch, Cinderella. I know it's the week of the 4th of July, but a 200k drop is rough. Hopeful that next week is better as the show is a great one to have on Broadway. Why the heck they replaced Carly and Fran though with two unknowns (to the non-theater world) still surprises me.

On a side note, I wonder if they'll ever stunt cast Topher. I feel as if there are more casting possibilities there as the role isn't as large as Cinderella. Also, I wonder if Janelle MonŠe has a big enough fanbase to join as Cinderella. She'd make a stunning Cinderella and definitely has a voice.

I would go see Cinderella again if they cast Courtney Act and Bianca Del Rio.

More so that I am a complete-ist. It will, unless it makes it to July 27th, be the only new musical production to open on Broadway that I haven't seen in more than 5 years.

It's amazing that Holler has remained open with such low grosses. As others have mentioned, this show seems to have a limited appeal and caters to a fairly specific audience. Certainly Cinderella and Bullets need some box office love.

Well, if anything, Holler is very defiant.

"caters to a fairly specific audience"

Weak book lovers are their own audience now?!

I'm not avoiding Holler because of the cast or Tupac or anything beyond people saying the book sucks, all the action/drama happens offstage, and there's a good show in there, and all of these other clues that indicate that I won't enjoy it, etc., etc. A talented, professional cast singing and dancing well isn't enough for Broadway, unless it's a revue.

I guess the critics aren't the only ones "scared" of holler.

Paying audiences were scared of it for weeks before the critics.

Just like many that have come before it, Holler is being financed by someone very very rich.

And yes, 4th of July is always bad but Cinderella's drop was *really* bad.

Interesting that Rocky is in the top ten for total attendance for the week with a very low average ticket price which means heavy discounts, TDF and papering. Yet it also means people will go - just not for top dollar. Eventually even discounts and papering reach a limit but not yet for Rocky. Glad to see there's an interest sad to see there no profit in that interest.

I adore Janelle Monae and think she would be incredible, but I'm not sure if she fits Cinderella. She would be great in a revival of The Wiz (the thought of her singing "Home" gives me the chills). I also for some reason think she'd make an offbeat but fantastic Sally Bowles.

In case you missed the massive campaign Rocky has been doing for the past two weeks, they sold a ton (if not most) of their seats for just $40 for the week of the 4th of July. Good for them for taking advantage of a historically slow week to be strategic and be in the top ten last week! Congrats!

They must be giving a lot of tickets away for Rocky. In the beginning of May, i got tickets off of TDF and they were $40.00 and got Orchestra Right row B aisle seats!
