Well, good for everybody -- Xmas week was the usual box office bonanza. Too bad the tourists couldn't stick around a bit longer. Some shows could really use the lift. How sad that Souvenir and Seascape STILL couldn't crack 60% attendance. And 77% for Woman in White is not a good sign for its long term future.

Woohoo go RENT! Wow. I'm scared to attempt lotto now.
I recognize the addiction to being alive.

That was just a Xmas week bump. The tourists have all gone back home now and the numbers will return to earth next week.

I already knew about Sweeny. I tried to get tickets for the matinee Friday and everything- including SRO- was sold out by noon.

It's so sad that Chitty got its best numbers during the last week.

You'll be fine. The week between Christmas and New Years is always a fluke.

I was surprised to see Beauty & the Beast crack a million. Guess they won't be closing it any time soon. Oh well. At least Souvenir is doing better business. Women in White still cracked a million, which is still really good. I'm glad Color Purple is doing good too.

How can Rent be at 104% capacity? Do they have more than 45 standing room spots for each performance?

And orangeskittles, you must have just missed the last Sweeney tickets on Friday -- I got my ticket for the matinee at about 12:03 online.

WIW may be in black mourning colors if numbers do not pick up. Anemic number for this period. What do January/February & March hold for it ?

The Woman in White has got to go. I think they over-estimated AlW's appeal and decided to go for the monstrous Marquis. Which, as you can see by the percentage, was not a good idea. It's going to close soon unless a stampede of people rush to it. But if that doesn't happen, the dead months ahead are going to kill it.

I think they have around 25 standing room spots at RENT.


But also, they raised SRO from $20 to $25 during holiday week and partial view from $60 to $75.

Hopefully the upped attendance from this week will help build word of mouth for WIW
