They added three more shows this week, dropped overall attendance by 12.2%, drove the average price paid for a ticket all the way up to $36, and went from bringing in an average of $20,081.40 per show up to $20,370.25 per show! Yowza...

Why are you pasting in contents of tweets rather than pasting in the link to the tweet?

How is posting reviews misconstruing facts? I talk about the show. You talk about me.

It made 12% of its potential gross last week. I can’t wait to see how you spin that into proof of its success.

The show is a big success according to those who actually attended. Unfortunately more people should have attended. It is what it is. I'd rather have a critical success.

Ruben and Clay sold more tickets than Springsteen!  

Spinning:  also, more tickets than Head over Heels, Choir Boy, The New One and Torch Song.

If it were in the Hayes it would be a sold out run. Someone said it was in too big a theater and they are right but it was the only one available at the time. The producers consider it a success. That's all that matters.

The latest revival of On The Town was also in too big a theater, contributing in part to its shortened run. It was without a doubt, one of the most exuberant productions I’ve ever experienced and was a critical success. However, it is still rightfully considered to be a flop because it struggled at the box office and didn’t recoup.

Isn't the capacity of the Walter Kerr just under a thousand?   So how does an AVERAGE of 562 tix sold a night = a sell out at the Kerr?  (Even the Hayes seats more than 562 - although not much - it still would NOT  be a sell out.)

 

The producers would prefer a financial success.   It's their money.

How do you know the producers consider it a success?  And please give me their contact information, because I know a small theatre company that could use some of the money that the Producers seem all too happy with part with.

I'm guessing MassiveMeGo is conceding that this was a show that shouldn't have been in a Broadway theatre?

Nope not saying that. I'm saying that the 4,500 seats sold this week at smaller theaters would have been a sold out show.

It still would’ve made $162,000 last week though even in a smaller theater. Since you have now pretty much confirmed you’re attached to the show’s production team, what is it’s weekly nut?

And I've just shown you that that's not true.

There are no current Broadway theatres where 562 tickets would be a sold out show.  So, the "smaller theatres" would have to be other than Broadway theatres.

And it’s only filling those seats by deeply discounting/comping those tickets. You do know people would be much more generous toward this show on here if you weren’t so intent on spinning every damning factoid in the show’s favor, right?

Oh so the collective you hates the show because I don't hate it? Gotcha.

No, it's you that seems to have a problem with math.   The Hayes is the smallest b'way house with a capacity of 597.   

597 x 8 shows = 4,776 seats.   So NO, nowhere on bway would this have sold out.   I believe there is a pretty in capacity after the Hayes.
