American Idiot comped 85% of their seats last week? Is that correct?

- Yeah, but comps are now included in attendance percentages. It must be wrong.

American Idiot's is definitely screwed up. The St. James doesn't have 42,725 total seats.

It's wrong because the total audience capacity is at 42,275 instead of 8,505. The actual attendance is around 77%.

The League just sent out a revision re: the capacity of the (not THAT big) St. James theatre and our page has been updated as well.

Not a shock about All About Me.. I really don't see how the producers thought this show could run for 4 months.

If they would have just listened to the feedback and ditched that little Matthew Finkelstein, they would still be running.

I know it is only for one performance, likely loaded with Chenoweth fans, but they really packed 'em in for that first performance of "Promises."

^If Promises, Promises played like that all week, it would have taken the throne away from Wicked.

Actually no. It would have been short by about $30k.

$190,790 for one performance
so 8 performances would be $1,526,320

just short!

The Promises figure is likely a combination of Chenoweth fans, Hayes fans, and Bacharach fans.

I really feel bad for Hair. It's probably been covering it's weekly nut for the past couple weeks. It should last through the summer and would like to see it last another year.
A Chorus Line revival 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. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

I don't think there's any chance Hair covered it's nut this past week. None. I would expect it to survive the summer though, at least.

No one should feel bad for HAIR.

It's probably gonna play through the summer and thrive during those months. Plus it's one of only four shows of last season to be a hit. I'd hardly feel bad for it.

"Million Dollar Quartet" doesn't look like it'll be a hit.

"I don't think there's any chance Hair covered it's nut this past week. None. I would expect it to survive the summer though, at least."

The show already recouped its gross. That's why the producers aren't closing it just yet. But I do agree that it probably won't last past the summer.

Nobody was expecting MDQ to be a hit. I'll be suprised if this is still running in July.
