Sorry/not sorry the positive reviews are upsetting.What are you talking about?Here's another one.That's not a review.
And free (or nearly so) is pretty darned affordable.

Like, it's a Christmas show?! It's not going to be extended through June...

Wait a second, can we go back to this? I would have thought that the donations were built into the weekly running cost, but you're saying that's not the case? So if they don't meet their weekly nut, then no money is donated? And in this case, since the show is bombing financially, that is the same as saying that this show will not be donating a cent to charity. Correct?
The performers and musicians involved need to be paid. The landlord needs to be paid. This isn't an instance of everyone donating their time and resources for a charitable cause. The production states that a "portion of the proceeds" will be going to the National Inclusion Project, not that they are just donating a sum of money. Money needs to be coming in for that portion to be taken out.

I just figured that they would take the charity portion out of the gross, then use the rest of the gross to pay for the running costs, then whatever the rest of the gross doesn't cover will be paid for by the investors - or where ever the money usually comes from when a show doesn't meet its weekly running cost.As you can probably tell, I don't have experience with the financial logistics of charity-contribution performances like this. Based on your and Dramamamma's comments, it sounds like what they're doing is pretty standard practice. So that's that. I guess it's just sort of sad that a show can market itself as donating to charity, when in reality it never actually does (whether through fault of their own, or not).
Clay and Ruben being on Broadway is its own form of charity, no?
From Vocab.com: Proceeds are the money brought in from a transaction or event. ... Proceeds can mean either the gross money earned (all that was brought in) or the net (the money left after expenses). If you are very concerned about where the money you donate to charity goes, this is a good question to ask.
I see you all working hard to diminish the show's success. Try not to hurt yourselves. Meanwhile:Janice DeanVerified account @JaniceDean If you are in #nyc and want to see a FANTASTIC broadway show you must get tickets to see my friends @clayaiken @RubenStuddard @RubenAndClay #christmasshow I promise you will love it. They are magic together. Also: they will be performing on @foxandfriends this weekend!

Hang onto that. Its all you've got.
That's enough. It's an OBJECTIVE measurement of success. FRIENDS liking your show means nothing, btw. Critics are SUBJECTIVE. Finances are specific, finite and proof.
Yup. The only objective success is box office. That said, if you like the show, then good times, you can see a show you want to see and not pay a lot to do it. Win-win! Beyond that, I'm not sure why you want to keep trying to convince us that everyone is loving it... and that is breaking box office records.
Wow. Another deleted comment addressing MassiveMeGo's repeated refutation of literal facts in this thread. The mods are really doing a bang-up job of exercising judgment in which posts and posters to scrutinize on this board. -Sincerely,A long-time poster who thinks "Trumpian self-delusion" is actually an accurate description and not an attack.
Nowadays, if you blink, a post is deleted. At times, I am thinking did I actually post this or read this. The real issue is there is no consistency on what is deleted or edited.
"I see you all working hard to diminish the show's success."Nobody is working hard nor do they really have to try other than report the grosses."A long-time poster who thinks "Trumpian self-delusion" is actually an accurate description and not an attack."Right?

On the Town With Aubrey ReubenWhere All the Stars Shine Brightly!December 15, 2018Ruben & Clay's First Annual Christmas Show , at the Imperial Theatre features the two singers, Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken . Five other members in the cast, directed by Jonathan Tessero , accompany them in a salute to the Christmas season. All are wonderful singers, and sing all the traditional Christmas songs. It is the perfect gift for the holidays. The audience enjoyed every moment, and gave the cast a standing ovation. We celebrated the opening at Copacabana. http://blacktiemagazine.com/New_York_Society/Aubrey_Reuben_December15_2018.htm
Just this. "nothing you or we say on this thread will impact the show’s success or failure." Try to remember that.

And one has to wonder if you know your misconstruing of facts isn’t helping the show succeed, why are you doing it? Is it just for attention? If so, that’s sad.
Massive is aiken for attention...
