And Phantom just keeps rolling along. . .

Strange that SA is in the 70s' for a show many were saying is like the second coming of RENT. . . ;o)

Also why isn't Gypsy a sell out with tickets going for hundreds of dollars? Can Patti not be such a draw...I mean after all her name is almost bigger then the title of the show . . .

The St. James is a pretty big theatre..and the last production of Gypsy was 4-5 years ago. There are a lot of theatre-goers who aren't planning on seeing it..pre-Tonys that is.

AUGUST keeps doing better and better. Now that they've moved to a smaller venue, the capacity is almost at 80%. The Music Box is obviously working for them.

I am happy for PS of course. Sunday night's performance was packed. I had to do standing room.

The 39 Steps is doing better than I expected them to do, which is great. Do you guys know if they balcony is open for them?

I honestly don't think GYPSY will ever be a sell-out hit, has it ever? Maybe the double win by LuPone and Benanti will change that, but I just feel this isn't the kind of show that tourists are aching to see. I remember I dated an idiot once who told me he wanted to see GYPSY (back in '03/'04) because he was a Peters fan but that his friend told him it was sad so he decided not to see it; his favorite shows are MAMMA MIA and THE LION KING... Something tells me he is more representative of the avg. tourists than I'd like to think.
I am SOOOO happy for IN THE HEIGHTS and PASSING STRANGE, little shows that could. It's great to see minorities succeeding on the Great WHITE Way.

The summer season is underway. Most shows' numbers will only go up now.
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.

It's interesting and encouraging that most shows had some slight to moderate bumps and no one show was in double digits so the love was spread around the town!

Its so annoying that Blonde is selling more tickets than most shows and making over half a million every week but its percentage is so low.They should have taken this show to a smaller theatre
