Ouchie at DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES and SPAMALOT.

Those are not good numbers to be looking at. And this is after Broadway Week ended so it’s not even like that influenced any of these numbers.

Yeah, a pretty bleak week for most everyone. 

Nice ending for Ohio though, solid start for Notebook, and sweet to see Sweeney back in the million club for now.

Reality of the upcoming Spring is starting to set in. Spamalot will limp along to the Tonys I would bet, but they lost a lot of money last week. Back to the Future seems like one that will hold on and see great business over the summer again like they did last year. But likely their last Summer on Broadway given how expensive that one is to run.

So curious to see how new shows fare as they start over the next few weeks. It's a dead level run through the end of April now.

So happy to see Prayer doing great business. The non-profits are really proving themselves this season

I anticipate a late spring/early summer closing for Spamalot.  I'm pretty confident that Back to the Future will hold on through the winter, pick up steam in the Spring, do strong business in the Summer then close up shop at the end of the year following the holiday rush.

Next week will hurt a little more considering the weather and the typical February slump.

The "Big 3" and the big-ticket celebrities might be the only things that could potentially save Broadway from a record-low spring.

How much does Wine and Roses cost to run? Can't be less than 500k?

The advance for A Beautiful Noise is terrible, yet there's no discount code available. Not sure how much longer the producers plan to hold out for. At this point, I doubt any new show is looking to get the theater any time soon.


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.

This is awful. I worry for the new musicals....none have big advances - including Alicia Keys.

Water for Elephants and Stuff are looking to raise extra money to get them to opening night. I wouldn't be surprised if one or maybe more new musicals scheduled do not open at all.

It's rough out there..........

The heart of rock and roll won't make it to opening night imo

Ticket prices are just out of control. I don't blame people for not going.

Yes, combined with a general lack of interest. Even if prices were much more affordable, I still don’t think enough people would come. Our entertainment habits have changed permanently.

Remember, Spamalot is only at the St. James because the Jujamcyns didn't want their flagshig house sitting empty. They are getting a massive break on the weekly rental and other various running costs. It will stay there regardless of how much money it makes until there is another show ready to fill that house.

I don't think ANY current musical costs less than 600 nowadays (though someone please chime in with specifics from the past 6 months if that's not true).

Book of Mormon almost hit 800k and they were consistently clearing $1mil until a month ago. They're fine. All shows expect this time of year to be hard because it always is.

Pretty good sign for Appropriate, though.

The thing that absolutely shocks me is Sweeney's gross...up over $400K.  Weren't SF and AT only in one performance last week??  Can anyone understand that one?

Days looks to have taken up the Harmony / Ohio slot, despite getting some really terrific reviews.  I have always thought that the average ticket buyer was never going to get interested in that one, despite Kellie O'Hara's participation.  A tough topic from a composer who doesn't make things easy for his audience (and is not exactly well known).  That said, I still find it amazing that Chicago, in its 197th year, almost doubled Days' gross for the week.

They began performances Friday night, so –– I think –– 4 performances.

I thought I read that Days of Wine and Roses was JUST under 600K (like the 590 range), but admittedly cannot remember where that came from.

Kimberly Akimbo is also under 600.

Operating costs are just far too high for Broadway musicals now. When even a small scale show costs so much to just break even...I worry producers will be much less likely to take risks on anything. Some Like it Hot had a break even of over 900K a week! We may not see another large scale original musical like that again for many years. Some of the ones attempting to strike gold this spring are likely headed for a similar fate unfortunately. There is simply too much product and audience behavior has changed so drastically (NO ONE wants to buy tickets in advance anymore. Looking at box office reports weeks down the road is incredibly scary and depressing).

Ironically, I believe Ohio's running costs were between 500 and 600. There are a few between 600 and 650, though not many. Wine and Roses also had an extremely low (comparatively)  capitalization which is a point in their favor.
