Impressive for the producers, but they are a great ensemble onstage. Great news!

Whoo-hoo! Here's hoping ticket sales pick-up after the Tony Awards. If not --- that extension will be voided quicker than it was written-up. re: Xanadu Stars Extend Through January 09!!!!!!!!

I really hope I can see it over the summer when I go again to NYC.
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."

Excellent news.

Business should pick up after the Tony nominations.

Pretty optimistic on the producers part. This is a show that has never had a sell-out week in a 600 seat theater. I also love how people are saying that the box office will pick up after the Tony's. Of course, if the myriad of noms that a lot of you are expecting don't materialize, the attendance could drop off even further.

Does it have to sell out? No. If you look at last year's grosses the overwhelming majority of the time they were making money. The show only costs somewhere in the low 200,000 range to run per week. So as long as they're making above that, they aren't required to have a sell out house really. They had quite a few weeks over 300,000 and one at 460,000. I don't think they're being unduly optimistic.
And hang on, when did you win the discus?

It sold out on the April 23rd Matinee. Hence the SOLD OUT sign by the box office. re: Xanadu Stars Extend Through January 09!!!!!!!!

Does anybody know if Andre Ward's contract was extended, and if not, how long he'll be with the show?

I am excited as well. I have posted several questions over the past few months wondering if Cheyenne Jackson would extend as an article in The Advocate mentioned he was leaving. This is good news and I must see again!

Am I the only one who is going to cry if both Mary Testa and Jackie Hoffman don't get nominated for Tonys?
