This show was a major financial flop and a totally misguided venture. It played to about 1/3 capacity at an average price of $34- the weekend leading into Christmas, aka the best possible time for a show like this! This thing was bleeding money before it even opened, and anyone who's even taken a passing glance at Broadway and popular culture lately could have called it.Sharing positive tweets and cherry-picked pull lines collated by the press team can't paper over that fact. And going on about some as-of-yet unsubstantiated 3-year contract (as if that even makes sense) doesn't nullify it, but is a very convenient way to move the goalposts.
If people came here they would get a lot of negative opinions which really don't reflect the real world. Most people who come here know what this place is already. You've been here 10 years, yet somehow still feel the need to differentiate the "real world" from BWW. The real world wasn't even interested enough to see this on Broadway, but are likely to sell out huge houses to Celtic Woman on tour, so what sort of opinions were you expecting here?
They shot their wad by using Broadway as the first year of this "three year contract." The smart presenters out there are going to look at the lackluster sales (even with the heavy papering they still didn't even crack 42% attendance in the lead up to Christmas, and I doubt once we see the grosses for this past week that they'll improve much upon that number) and keep far away.If they wanted to build up any kind of buzz to attract presenters they would have been much wiser to try their first year in a market like Branson, MO where they might have had a chance at halfway decent sales. Instead it now carries the stink of New York flop sweat that's hard to ignore for even a one or two night engagement.
In its final week, it played an extra show AND had 581 less audience members than the previous week, but did increase its box office take by $22K.
The show is dead, why isn't this thread? It bombed, it was horrible, and made zero dollars. Anyone thinking different....can't read or see or hear I guess?
It's been active all day and it was third down. A thread that hasn't been active in years, months, or weeks is "bumping" a thread.

Nope, but I can define it, which is what happened. I just figured people were coming back to see if that person actually made good on their bet, which apparently they did. Goodbye to the worst thing on Broadway in such a very long time!
