Hello, and goodbye... Looks like Broadway may have its first big new hit in Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella, while another venerable Broadway lady, Mary Poppins is continuing to go out on a major high.  Rock of Ages continues to rake in the bucks with ticket averages over $100... why?  Except for the usual suspects (The Book of Mormon, Once, Wicked, The Lion King, Newsies, Spider-Man) every other show is on the winter box office merry-go-round - up one week down the next.  Is it the winter blues or are Mamma Mia and Nice Work If You Cab Get It running out or steam? (Side prediction: barring MAJOR recasting, like Hugh Jackman, I give Nice Work less than a month after Matthew Broderick leaves.)
