I'm also curious of the audience demographics for The Inheritance. Among my friends here in NYC, only my gay friends have seen the play. The play really needs great word of mouth in the straight community in order for it to do well in the box office after it opens.
Four shows opened last week: Lightning Thief, Sound Inside, American Utopia, and Rose Tattoo. I'd presume they gave out a lot of complimentary tickets especially on opening night, hence the tendency for lower grosses compared to the week before. Out of those four shows, however, The Sound Inside actually grossed higher this past week than the week before. That's a good sign and hopefully its positive reviews and word of mouth will help the show's grosses in the future.

Love her!!!!! My friends and I got to see her last year and it was worth every dollar! Given these concerts are in December I wonder if she will sing a Christmas/holiday song.

I usually prefer front orchestra if the price is right, but for the 8 Broadway/off-broadway shows I saw on my recent trip, I sat front mezzanine/dress circle rear orchestra for all of them. Views were all great although legroom in mezzanines/dress circles were uniformly lacking. But the price was right and allowed me to splurge on VIP concert tickets."
That Ben Platt concert was worth the splurge!!!! Also, I hope you get to see Inheritance
Did anyone go see Meghan Picerno (the new Christine Daae) last night? I believe it was her Broadway debut after doing the world tour of Phantom. It also seems to me she will be the main Christine and Eryn LeCroy will remain the alternate?
I went to Kaley Ann Voorhees's last performance on Sunday evening and she was amazing as always! Her depiction of Christine is the way I've always envisioned Christine to be so will miss her but am happy she's moving on to the next ch

+1 on this. I love numbers hence why I read the grosses each week. I don’t think I was “demanding” at all but to each his own. For the record no I have no money in any of these shows but I wish I can qualify to be one someday (to be an accredited Broadway investor you have to have a household income of $300k per year.)

Before the end of 2019? No. Before the 2020 Tonys? Possibly!The capitalization is said to be $28m, but the weekly operating costs have to beexorbitantbecause of all the music licensing. Just doing quick math: If we assum
