HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

Broadway Box Office: Week 28: 12.03 - 12.09.2012

Rob McClure as Charlie Chaplin
Congratulations to Chaplin's Rob McClure!  He is the recipient of the 2012 Clive Barnes Award for Theatre!  Congratulations to the cast and crew of The Mystery of Edwin Drood on your extension through March 10!  And finally, to the casts and crews of Forbidden Broadway: Alive and Kicking, Annie, A Christmas Story and Grace  for being named in the Theater Top 10 for 2012 in Time Magazine!




BROADWAY BOX OFFICE
Week #28; 30 Productions
December 3 - 9, 2012


Al Pacino in Glengarry Glen Ross

Opened This Week:
  • Glengarry Glen Ross - 6 previews, 2 performances
  • Golden Boy - 3 previews, 5 performances

Carolee Carmello and Company in Scandalous

Closed This Week:
  • Scandalous - 31 previews, 29 performances

The box office is down, as it usually is just before the busiest week of the entire year.  As you'll see the box office race is tight - 11 shows are tied for their spots on the chart and 11 shows are exactly where they were last week!  The biggest losers for the week is the now-closed Scandalous, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Anarchist, Dead Accounts; the biggest winners are the soon-to-close War Horse, Elf, Chicago, Chaplin, and The Mystery of Edwin Drood !
