Yes, ATP is perhaps the surprise hit of the 2018/2019 season. However, Beetlejuice is really gaining steam - it could become the sleeper hit of last season.

Tootsie is looking rough, behind almost all the closing shows in terms of gross potential %. 

Beetlejuice is finding an audience for sure. I'll be curious to see if that continues into the fall.

I still wish The Prom had tried to hold on, it has had two of its best weeks to date the last two weeks.

Yeah, I do worry that if box office continues to decline for Tootsie that it’ll close before my trip. I plan to see it Oct. 2.

Not bad at all for Moulin Rouge, but I thought it's be way above 100% gross

Last week had opening night for them which means multiple comps for a huge chunk of the theatre.  That fills the seats but will bring the % of Gross Potential down.

This board always doubted ATP. Im not really sure why their success is surprising. Several out of town successful sell out hits, and one of the most easily "Commercial" shows of this season. Im happy for everyone involved but am in no way surprised at those numbers. Especially since its playing a large theater

But that increased attendance is probably BECAUSE it is closing, not an independent trend...

Perhaps, but that's not really happening with any of the other shows closing in coming weeks

Tootsie not looking good, but what is most important is are they bringing in more money each week than the show costs to run, and they are probably doing that, although at this rate it will take years to recoup. 

The Prom did try to hold on. It tried very very hard. It took out loans to keep trying. But still wasn't selling well enough.

Tootsie will never recoup its investment.

I admit that I'm a bit surprised at Beetlejuice's seeming turn around. While they didn't open in "instant flop" territory, the outlook was certainly foggy at best until the Tony Awards where they managed to get themselves into a generally upward trend. I think the real question now is will they be able to survive January and February to be able to get into the spring and potentially next summer.

Wasn't Tootsie announced for an eventual national tour, London and Australia?  Shouldn't that go a long way to help recoup if the Broadway run doesn't permit.  And at least in these different venues there won't be the rather ridiculous hatred for this delightful show that I find difficult to fathom. On the road it should be different.

The Broadway production and the touring production don’t necessarily have all the same financiers. There may be some overlap or not. As I understand it, the touring production has nothing to do with helping the Broadway production recoup. Sure, if the tour does well enough, it may help some financiers of both break even or more from the loss they took on Broadway although I think that’s pretty unlikely given how much the investors will likely lose on the Broadway production.

I still think Beetlejuice will have similar fate to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.


The show's having a good time at BO because of summer, but the fall numbers will be telling (Halloween week will probably be good tho), but I don't think it will survive to complete a year on Broadway.

Interestingly, Beetlejuice recently cut off the validity period for discount codes at October 6.
