Is this the first week The Outsiders grossed a million dollars? Good for them, hopefully they can keep it up! 
 

Anyone else shocked by the success The Wiz is having?

Nope. They found (or rather already were guaranteed) their audience, just like MJ the musical, which I always expected to fizzle out within a year, but not only it recouped, it keeps pulling great grosses for the third year in a row. 

Fantastic bumps for some new musicals. Suffs and The Outsiders, keep it up!

Cabaret in the $2 million club is quite impressive.

Impressive week for almost everyone other than Heart of Rock and Roll and Lempicka.

Eh, when your top ticket is $799, it seems like it should’ve been there already. The bottom will probably drop out over the next few months when the opening rush wears off

The earnings from that top ticket price is not actually reflected in these grosses, since the food and drink price bit of the ticket is not reflected in the grosses (nor is the booking fee, which pushes it past the 700).

Patriots has a flash sale going on, wonder if that will help them

It is not looking good for Back to the Future. The last two weeks are its 3rd and 4th worst weeks of its entire run. Not good for May.

Cabaret - holy cow.

New highs for Hell's Kitchen, Suffs and The Outsiders. Would have been for Illinoise too if they hadn't had to cancel performances. Second highest week for Water For Elephants. Tony noms matter.

Lempicka's grosses did go up (I'm assuming with the announcement of closing), but they're still not all that close to selling out and their average ticket is only a hair above that of HORAR.  I expected a bit more of a turnout from the stans but maybe they're all saving it for the last week.

I know Cursed Child probably has a bit more to run before they call it quits, but does anyone know what their weekly nut is?

It seems like most shows are up across the board, so not sure that we can thank the Tony noms for that (and usually I think it takes a bit longer to see the effects).

Really disappointed that Patriots could not get any traction.  I saw it almost a year ago in London and loved it.

Disappointed that Heart is not getting better.  I think Corey Cott is very talented, and would like to see him in a hit.

Happy to see Suffs heading in the right direction, as well as The Outsiders.

Illinoise doesn't seem to be catching on.  I imagine an extension is becoming increasingly unlikely.

If it were to extend it could only be for another week or two. It's set to close August 10, and SUNSET begins previews Sept 28.

Unless they had hopes to move it to a different theatre, which now seems quite unlikely.

Gregg Nobile has now muscled 3 shows to Broadway at the very end of the season with virtually no advance notice (Illinoise, Sidney Brustein, and POTUS) and the sales have not been great for any of them. Makes you think about how all might have done if they had more time to build advertising pre-Bway (and, in the case of two of the shows, if the off-Bway runs hadn't diluted Broadway sales).

Thanks. I appreciate it. Never received the email

Still continue to be impressed by Water for Elephants week after week. I did not see that coming

Me too. Tony noms definitely helped them, but it also seems like one of the very few neutral shows, without any message or agenda. You can bring your whole family and please the whole crowd.

Gatsby, without the critical accolades, or  Tony recognition is quietly making over $1 million a week now 4 weeks in a row - being entertained matters

Fully. and people on this board will still talk about it closing in a few months to make way for the other Gastby, which nobody knows anything about. Astounding blissful ignorance

It’s early, but for a new musical spring that seems to have drawn a collective meh, some of these shows are putting up very respectable numbers. Hell’s Kitchen is looking like the hit new musical of the season.

I think Illinoise is siding just fine? It’s filling up the theater and making some money.

A Tony win for ILLINOISE will determine if they move theaters and extend.


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.

The day of closing for some of the shows in relation to Tony Award wins seems like money on the table a little, even if they’ve been running along time. Merrilly is poised to win several Tony’s and then close a few weeks later, most likely Appropriate will win Best Revival and Best Actress and close a few weeks later, Stereophonic is set to close in August, Illinoise is limited. I guess at least the final weeks should be fun and full houses.

Not hard to do with their terrorist ticket prices.
