Another week, another shattered record left in Bette Midler’s wake. Yawn.

The Tony winner propelled Hello, Dolly! to a new high for the Shubert Theater, grossing $2.37 million. Don’t get me wrong: I’m grateful for the traffic, but coming up with new ways to say how great Ms. Midler is each week becoming an exercise in seriously creative syntax malleability. She’s back where she belongs – who else is arriving? Read More

The Boss made his Broadway debut this week – and shattered multiple industry records in the process.

With just five performances of his concert show Springsteen On Broadway, he grossed a staggering $2.33 million, behind only Hamilton and Hello, Dolly! – which were playing full 8-performance schedules. It’s the most any show has grossed at the Walter Kerr theater, and a great feather in the cap for Jujamcyn, which owns the venue. Read More

Broadway is breaking another price barrier.

Producers of “Hello, Dolly!” are now charging $998 for front row seats at many performances between late November and mid-January, when Bette Midler leaves the cast, according to a review of ticket prices on the Telecharge website. With fees, each of those seats will cost $1,009.

The price is a record for a non-holiday performance on Broadway. “Hamilton” is the only show that has reached that level before, charging $998 for some seats during the Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks last year. Read More

Some of the most impressive choreography on Broadway can be seen six nights a week on 45th Street, but it doesn’t happen on a stage.

NYPD Officer John O’Gorman is the thin blue line between safety and chaos on a heavily trafficked block that is packed with six theaters, including the Minskoff, home of the ever-popular “The Lion King,” and Music Box, host of the hit tuner “Dear Evan Hansen.” Read More
