I heard that Eden was hoping to be back tonight so tomorrow (Saturday) should be safe. That said I was told from reliable sources that Mariand was amazing but obviously played the role somewhat differently than Eden.

Grabbed a rush ticket on Saturday because...well, why not? The team has definitely been putting their time in - very different opening and closing from early previews. The show also flows well now, with good transitions and dialogue that moves the story along smoothly and more background projections (which I enjoyed). I was always impressed with the music and now the show appears much more polished. Very strong performances all around including Eden.

They’re doing everything they can to attract the gays and theys, it seems. This man’s promo video is transparently biased - “best musical I’ve ever seen” puh-lease - and I can’t imagine he’s contributing any kind of significant financial investment, so this feels more like they snagged an influencer and allowed him to have a producing credit in the vain hope it wins Best Musical. In short, it reeks of desperation.

I think it's the only show this season that is not a revival, based on IP and/or has a famous celeb producer attached (Clinton, Angelina Jolie etc). They have an uphill battle. There are differing opinions about the production itself but most seem to agree the music is quite good (as do I).

Except that's not true. Most recent statistics from the FBI show that violent crime is down. The fearmongering is what makes it seem the violent crime is up. We know about the random punching because of Tiktok. We know about these incidents because they are Broadway celebrities. These things happened before Tiktok we just didn't hear about them in the same way. They weren&#3

Saw the show last night. My significant other went to the first preview last week. We both thought the show was quite good - definitely needs some work but it seems to be heading in the right direction based on the changes from last week to this week. Changed the opening, closing, more projections of her art correlating with the story, tighter scene transitions. They also seem to have pared back some of the over-the-top tech (got rid of the distracting lyrics during "Perfection"...g

First preview! Agree that this show is likely by far the best original one opening this season.

Also, why are people talking about betty boop or hells kitchen going into the shubert? they haven't even had a single performance yet.

That would make sense as Lempicka supposedly had their final CBs this week. What social media accounts are you referencing?

Maybe it will be a New Years closing announcement. I hate that, but given how it's doing...I don't see it going into 2024.

I'd hate to lose it too but with the grosses, casting issues and now a lawsuit IDK if I see them lasting to Jan 1.

Nice boost for SLIH and looks like Shucked may be finally gaining some traction. Shucked is probably at least close to covering their weekly nut.

Curious as to how Hadestown does over the next few weeks and into the summer. I assume the recent drop is from a still somewhat limited audience pool preferentially going to the newer and/or Tony nominated shows.

I assume they will be taking the NYC set to the West End?

Agree Shucked and SLIH +/- NYNY gaining some ground from the nominations. Let's see if it persists into June. Rough times for Bad Cinderella and Life of Pi. 

Too early to tell about Hadestown. It may be just a slow few weeks with attendance down and people wanting to see the shows getting awards/nominations. They just released a block of tickets from Labor Day until mid-November (no clue if that actually means anything).

Mr.Liir said: "Shucked is actually selling pretty well considering, but the average ticket price is a lot lower than, say, Sweeney Todd.

I don't know what Shucked running costs are, but they don't have a huge set to constantly move or big pieces that fly in and out. Their tech is really minimal, and the cast, while not small, is not the size of a Phantom, Wicked, Sweeney, etc. Also, the show is in the Nederlander, which isn't rented, but owned by Jimmy Nederlan

Agree SLIH, Dancin' and BC are in trouble. Leopoldstadt will probably struggle to make it to their July close.

KA small theater and cast so probably OK if they do well with the Tonys.

Shucked does not seem to be catching on despite them spending a ton on press but their producers claim to be very devoted to giving it time. I don't see it especially with Peter Pan Goes Wrong doing so well in the comedy genre.

Life of PI...not good if running costs are high wit

Very nice, thanks! Do you know if they update it fairly regularly?
