Much better week for Broadway grosses, especially for 'Cinderella'.

Cinderella is still only making 46% of its potential, so not that much better.

Eta: If/Then cancelled last Tues' performance for the MLB game, which explains the drop. They added one Sunday night but I'm sure it didn't make up the loss.

Newsies closing confuses me, it's grosses are still good and no shows been announced to replace it. Could this pull a 'extended due to popular demand' ?

WOW, Beautiful's doing amazing. 101.2% gross potential, 100.6% capacity. I can't imagine it'll be much longer before they recoup.

The Newsies closing isnt about the grosses per week. It's done in August.
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.

But how well will Newsies draw once school is back in session? The timing may be just right for them to close.

So happy to see Gentleman's Guide approaching $1m.

nice bump for Pippin, though it should/could be doing better and I think Once will close in January unless they bring in a big star.

Good week for almost everyone. Glad to see Pippin's grosses increasing, but I'm seriously worried that IF/THEN won't recoup by the time Idina leaves the show, which is when it will close.

Why would this worry you? Are you an investor?

It was announced (I forget where) that Menzel extended her contract until next April, so she'll be with it a full year. If grosses remain steady through Summer with a solid Holiday season I think they'll have a good chance of recouping.

It was already noted, but If/Then cancelled a performance this week which definitely affected the grosses (they did schedule a replacement Sunday night perf but doubtful that made up the loss). Idina's contract is through March so as long as grosses hold somewhat steady--which, why wouldn't they?-- it has a very good chance of recouping.

I still wonder what ONCE's weekly nut is. They've been grossing $500-$400 all summer and it doesn't appear they'll be closing before the Fall starts. I hope they have a decent advance for the Fall.

Haterobics, I'm just worried because I don't think it is ever good when investors lose their money, especially when championing original work, no matter what your thoughts on the piece are.

"Haterobics, I'm just worried because I don't think it is ever good when investors lose their money, especially when championing original work, no matter what your thoughts on the piece are."

Isn't that an incredibly simplistic way of looking at the business of Broadway? If investors bring us a complete piece of crap and make money anyway, what do you think we will continue to get? Root for people who bring us great things. People who bring us mediocrity can lose their money and learn from the experience. Would you worry about whether the investors in a restaurant with lousy service, terrible food and sky high prices lose money even if the type of cuisine was somewhat original?

I'm a fan of If/Then (see avatar), but I guess I just hope they make their money back... worry just seems a step too far down a path over which I have zero control.

What about ROCKY? I know someone who invested heavily in this show. Will it ever recoup? And how does it work, exactly? If a show doesn't recoup by the time it closes, do the investors lose everything they've invested, or do they recoup a percentage? Can someone with some knowledge of how this works please clue me in? Thanks!

Look smart ass, if I was a position to ask them, I would. I'm asking here. And regardless of whether or not I know someone who invested, I'd still like to know how it works. So, if you don't know or want to answer the question, then kindly have the common courtesy to keep your snide and useless comments to yourself.

Rocky will flop. Doubt the investors will see much of their investment back, it has been bleeding cash for a while.

You're precious.

I'd be shocked if the investors even see a SMALL fraction of their money back.
