Has anyone on here seen Leslie Kritzer's instagram freestyle video? (If you haven't, Instagram Post).At the end, she says something about not leaving their theatre. I thought it was hilarious she threw that in there. Though, in the comments someone says "Also love that she’s low key confirming that music mans not going into the winter garden." and she follows up with a reply "we don’t know that. So not confirming anything".
i randomly found literature that said the johnny cash musical was in too large a house- it was in the barrymore. how much smaller can the theater be before you stop being able to blame failure on house size? i wish ms doubtfire all the best. but i see it having the same exact trajectory as tootsie at best. i. have. doubts. i will find it truly amusing if the only show that can actually fill the marquis-the music man- doesn't go there simply because of producer ego. i know theres many bigger problems in the world, but as a theater goer i have a lot of issues with the state of ny theatre currently.

So, where is Blue going to play? Id think the Lyceum, but many people seem to think that would be for Sing Street. Is Blue no longer coming in this season? To my knowledge, unless the Barrymore opens up there won't be a theatre for it, and I cannot imagine it plays the Marquis or Neil Simon.

BJ has a long way to go before next Fall."Just browsed its Telecharge seating charts, and those houses look empty starting in January. The current block of tickets is through April, but I wonder if it would shutter before that?
I doubt it will close before April. Beetlejuice is a show where a lot of people will rush or buy last minute. (Not to mention it could start selling quicker closer to the holidays.) The shows for March and end of February are starting to fill up, and the weekend shows for January are starting to sell a bit more too. I'm fairly certain that if they close it, they'll give it a full year run on Broadway and have the last April show be the closing night. Just my thought though.
January isn't a super good barometer because most shows don't do well in January, but luckily they've been making money and can pull through.
I think the fact that it was just announced that they broke the Winter Garden box office records this week will certainly help. And I wouldn't doubt that they extend into the summer, which makes me wonder if the original cast will sign on to stay through the original run if that's the case.

If the theater itself is open before the rest of the building is, it would only be by a few months. The Palace should not be considered for at least a few years.
