Broadway Grosses w/e 7/2/2017 – A star goes on vacation, and takes 1.37mm with her.

 I don’t know what’s more amazing . . . that Bette Midler took a vacation or that Hello, Dolly! dropped $1.37 million in ticket sales?

 

Or that Bette Midler took a vacation and Hello, Dolly! dropped $1.37 million in ticket sales . . . and it still did $937k!

 

That $1.37mm that vanished from the market is like the street losing an entire show, which is one of the reasons the street was down 9% from the week before.  That, plus the loss of Sunset Boulevard (another diva that was bringing in the dollars) made the week look a lot worse than it was.  Because, individually, many shows were up, including plays like Oslo and 1984 (could the conventional wisdom of summer time not being a time for plays finally be debunked?).

 

So I wouldn’t be so worried about any kind of summer time slump…we just don’t want Dolly to ever go away again.
