In the week ending July 30, 2017, the top earning show in terms of percentage reached of its gross potential was Kinky Boots, which was the 2013 Tony Award winner for Best Musical.  Spurred on by the recent addition of pop star Brendon Urie to the cast, Kinky Boots is experiencing a renaissance of its top box office days, which peaked in the holiday season at the end of 2013, as well as late summer 2013 following the show’s Tony success.  This past week, the weekly gross for Kinky Boots was $1,584,103, which is the highest weekly gross since Urie entered the cast.  This is an increase of $131,512 from the week before, and the grosses have been steadily increasing for the past 10 weeks.  Prior to that, the week ending May 28, 2017 had a weekly gross of just $796,424, after which a steep jump of $318,869 led the show on its current upward trend.  In terms of gross potential, Kinky Boots had the highest gross this past week at 125.99% of its gross potential.

    As an actor you’re supposed to take jobs that will challenge you or force fans to see you in a different light.

    As an actor you’re supposed to take jobs that will challenge you or force fans to see you in a different light. By the ’90s, I wasn’t really an actor anymore. I was someone who went on the road with these gigantic concerts. I got so far away from what they told you in acting class: Do something different. Producers kept offering me the “Sister Act” movie, but I said, “My fans don’t want to see me in a wimple.” I literally said, “My fans don’t want to see me in a wimple.”. – Bette Midler Read More

    Freak Show is an amazing coming-of-age movie about a queer character—something still rare in mainstream media. What largely makes this film so special is the visibility it will receive by default just because of the incredible artists who’ve attached their names to it: Bette Midler, AnnaSophia Robb, Abigail Breslin, and Laverne Cox are all casually assembled within this legendary cast of seasoned icons and rising new talents.

    I thought I would be an actorrrr.
