Beautiful better work with those numbers. They're doing great for being in previews. So encouraging to see one of the new shows for the season doing so well.

I don't know enough about the show to speculate so...are these numbers for Mamma Mia considered good? I'm sure it's enough to cover their running costs but I feel like 60% gross potential with an $80 avg ticket price isn't stellar for that show.

Mamma Mia's grosses aren't great but they're an improvement on what it was grossing a few weeks back, I guess that they're at least making running costs but its clear the move hasn't really boosted ticket sales.

A Gentleman's Guide is doing decent business as it's still making a profit with those numbers. Hopefully it's enough to keep it around until springtime Tony buzz!

Also, wow Beautiful is selling quite well for a show still in previews.

The Mamma Mia move wasn't to boost ticket sales- it was just to lower running costs and have a smaller house to fill.

I'm pretty sure it was more of a "move" for Rocky or "close" situation

I still haven't gotten to the Belasco myself yet, but man is it encouraging to see these numbers for TWELFTH NIGHT/RICHARD III. I'm so glad we've got proof there's an audience for Shakespeare's Globe!
Words don't deserve that kind of malarkey. They're innocent, neutral, precise, standing for this, describing that, meaning the other, so if you look after them you can build bridges across incomprehension and chaos. But when they get their corners knocked off, they're no good anymore…I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.
