Broadway Rumors/Whispers

Chess was delayed due to Lea having a baby, which is happening soon so ostensibly, they could come in in the spring if it’s still in the works. I have no idea if Lea will sell a show outside of fulfilling a sort of cultural prophecy in Funny Girl and Florence seems like such a strange next role.  

Broadway Grosses: Week Ending 7/7/24

Call_me_jorge said: "i wish they would bring back the gross potential. That was always such a fascinating number."

It also came to mean almost nothing because of dynamic pricing pre-COVID. Productions that were hits were changing gross potential every day with price changes, so it didn’t actually indicate anything. I get why they don’t report that anymore.

I like to call this Taylor Swift feminism. Hollow.

I in no way intended any antisemitic sentiment in sharing something that had been discussed in industry circles. That it was taken that way I feel horrible about and taking that as a lesson in intent vs impact. Thanks for calling that out.

Trying to decide if I need to pull the trigger on the remaining seats or wait.

The front rows won’t be put on sale until the set is loaded in and they have a sense of the stage height will be such that they have to

The Jones seems most likely if they’re announcing this coming week given Heart of R&R will be closed. Wonder if they’ll be trying to come in this Fall.

Aaron is the best of the pretty white boy brigade they have going, but good lord, are they just not even trying to find new faces?

Moulin Rouge’s sales have historically lagged over the summer. This is a distinct effort to counteract that. It’s not a cheap show to run with a break even probably north of $1mil, so they can’t lo

The amount of money they must be throwing at Aaron to get him to come back must be staggering.

Oh I agree entirely that the execution of HK was horrid. Same page there. It’s those that are bemoaning the entire conceit of celebrities performing with the cast that I’m referring to as clueless.

I’d bet money Corey Cott in particular would not be interested in playing Jim Bakker in a show where Jim Bakker doesn’t come out looking great…

You can like it or not, celebrity artists will always be a part of any shows performance that makes sense. This made sense. I’m just glad none of you are making marketing decisions for shows. This is the biggest commercial opportunity for any new show. It would be foolish not to pull out all firepower to sell as many tickets as possible.

Not the point. In the age of social media, it doesn’t matter if any given person tunes into a live broadcast, but that they see it after the fact and that is indeed happening and her fans as well as his are seeing that they performed the song for the first time in years this morning in support of a musical on Broadway that they didn&rs

I wish Gen Z would learn how to use the word "literally" correctly.

Aww bitterness is ugly babe, just take the L. I wish I was in my youth and a part of Gen Z though, so I’ll take your snark as a compliment that you think I’m young. 

In any case the people stamping their feet now didn’t stamp

Literally just gave you an example. Sara Bareilles. Waitress. 2016. Get a grip.

Alicia Keyes STOLE the song from Maleah. Maleah WON THE TONY. And the composer stepped in and took her best number. So we never got to hear the young lady who WON the award because the composer decided it was best she sing it. That was AWFUL. That was a disgrace imho.
