Yay for GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE! TONYs really helped them a lot. I'm astonished by how they are now selling out and selling 100%!

Glad that CRIPPLE is on the upswing prior to the end of its run. BULLETS is doing a little better. Maybe it will do better as Woody Allen's next (Magic in the Moonlight) hits screens.

Ouch for ONCE, ROCKY, ROCK OF AGES. I wonder why NEWSIES is pulling the plug and those three shows aren't. HOLLER's producers must know it's a flop by now!

I suppose it makes no difference if Holler continues to lose money, since its longevity has no correlation to its box office...

Rock of Ages has a low total but it's also in the smallest theater. Its gross potential is higher than Pippin.

"Rock of Ages has a low total but it's also in the smallest theater. Its gross potential is higher than Pippin."

They may be in the smallest theater but they've still got a cast of around 14-15 plus swings/understudies and the band. That's a lot to carry when you're only grossing $284,000 a week.

Not sure how Once could have only a modest $8k drop in box office, how dies this equates to a hefty 20% drop.

Pippin also should do some new advertising or bring in a major celebrity pretty soon.

I really don't understand why and how Holler If Ya Hear Me is still running (aside from the fact that their producers are clearly idiots). They must be hemorrhaging money at this point.

Not a great week, especially for the summer. I don't think 'Cinderella' will stay open past the summer months, especially since it has not had great grosses these past two weeks. Besides Fran Drescher leaving, a reason for its decline is that 'Aladdin' has been taking away its family audiences. Even when it closes, it still had a decent run and I am so glad that I got the chance to see it on Broadway.

Re: Pippin

I don't know, most revivals (Chicago, aside) run approx. a year, to a year and a half. Seems about right.
If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

that being said Pippin does have the same main producers as Chicago, so we never know what will happen.

Ouch for Once

Four Simple Rules for Attending the Theater 1. This is a nice night out. Dress accordingly. Like, no sweatpants. 2. When you enter the theater, turn off your phone. All issues with phones will be avoided this way, & you won't be verbally accosted by the cast, crew, & other patrons. 3. I did not pay dollas to hear you talk or sing. I paid dollas to see & hear gorgeous men like Norm Lewis, Ramin Karimloo & Joshua Henry. 4. Unless you have medical issues, don't eat. The wrappers are loud, & your disgusting munching is even louder. You aren't at the movies or a barn dance, baby.

Pippin needs to keep a gay icon in the role of Berthe. No idea why they cast Lopez for roughly a month. Was Susan Lucci not available?

"Not sure how Once could have only a modest $8k drop in box office, how dies this equates to a hefty 20% drop."

If you look at last week they had a much lower average ticket price, the lowest they had all year. So though they sold fewer tickets this week, those tickets were sold at a higher price (which leads one to conclude that there were a lot of comps and/or heavily discounted tickets sold last week for whatever reason).

I liked Rocky

Having said that, someone with deep pockets is keeping it alive.Hopefully it will last until years end. No hope after that.

Isn't this the time when shows start to drop like flies? Never mind the limited engagements, I expect more closing notices soon.

Once offered $47 tickets all of July 4 week, hence why their capacity was high, but their grosses & ticket average was still low.
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.

Isn't Labor Day when a lot of shows tend to disappear? Sort of like that first Sunday in January?
