Sad, but not surprised, to see Girl From the North Country's numbers are already less than stellar.

Surprised that JLP's one canceled show was included in their grosses.
A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Agree. I guess technically it wasn't cancelled until after the show had begun, but those are lots of refunds and exchanged un-accounted for in the grosses this week. Still a shame what happened either way- I loved the show and I'm very glad it still seems to be doing as well as it is.

TINA's numbers continue to amaze me. It's not selling out at 100%, but continues to bring in ~$1.5 million.

Funny I was just wondering why/how Tina's doing considerably better than Cher.

And off the rails we go.

I have no knowledge of broadway accounting or anything but I just went back through the last couple of weeks of grosses and I notice West Side Story has exactly 100% capacity every single week. Not 1 seat more (standing room?) or less filled at every performance? Every other show even the perennially sold out shows seem to fluctuate a bit on exact seating numbers. Is this some weird reporting or they actually have sold out every show and not done standing room or anything at any performance?

The simple explanation here and answer to your questions are a) yes, they have sold out every performance so far and b) perhaps they do not offer standing room at this theater (to my knowledge, they don’t) so if those two statements are true, the capacity percentage would in fact remain unchanged. 

Harry Potter is a good example to look at...

It is fairly common not to sell SR during previews. (That said, I don't recall whether there is SR at the Broadway or not.)

The Broadway Theater does not have SRO.

No one is doing surveys to get this kind of info but I'd be very curious to at least get anecdotal reports about demographic breakdowns from theater staff. My guess would be that for whatever reason, Cher didn't pull in many people outside of the typical Broadway audience and Tina is doing just that. Also, I feel like audiences have rejected the idea of splitting the lead role into 3 parts in a biomusical.

Tina's story is more appealing than Cher's? I think a lot of ppl watched What's Love Got to Do With It and identified with Tina.

Actually these surveys are done. The Broadway League releases the results in aggregate. But the shows can get the info for just their show.

You mean a 27-year old film is influencing today's audiences?

P.S.  Which "persona"  are you being now, ivy?  LOL

Um my real one? I'm not trying to start an argument just say that the factors that made What's Love Got to Do With It a hit are what makes Tina the stronger bio musical. Theres a compelling story a juicy villain and Tina's music catalogue.

I'd say Tina's life story is more compelling, but man, on paper I would have assumed Cher was a slam-dunk 5-year run.

is it possible that Cher touring at the same time hurt the show? like, why see the cher show when you could just see Cher herself?
