7 Predictions for the Theater in 2018
Editorial Staff • Broadway • Jan 1, 2018

You can’t see the future, but if you stop and listen, you can hear which way the wind is blowing. With that in mind, here are seven predictions from TheaterMania about the trends and ideas that will shape the theater in the coming year:

1. More A-List Musicians Will Play Broadway
Bruce Springsteen is changing the game at the Walter Kerr Theatre. While numerous high-profile musicians have created “theatri-concerts” for the Broadway stage — a list that ranges from the likes of Bette Midler to Duran Duran — Springsteen’s solo show, complete with dark, brooding monologues about his life and new acoustic takes on his extensive song catalogue, plays more like Billy Crystal’s introspective 700 Sundays than a career retrospective highlighting his greatest hits.

Broadway offered something for everyone last week, as long as everyone was loaded with dough. Face-value ducats topped out at $1,150 for blockbuster Hamilton, but that was Monopoly money considering the going rate for fans of Bette Midler (nearing the spectacular end of her spectacular run in Hello, Dolly!) and Bruce Springsteen (whose work week is limited to five performances at the 948-seat Walter Kerr).

Broadway Tops Its Biggest Week Ever

The New York Times
Broadway Tops Its Biggest Week Ever
By ANDREW R. CHOWJAN. 2, 2018

The Broadway ticket sales boom hit a new peak over the holidays, with 32 shows contributing to the highest-grossing week in history.

The week between Christmas and New Year’s is typically Broadway’s biggest of the year, with tourists in town and students off for the holidays.

Higher ticket prices and the increased use of premium pricing models meant that more money came in last week, despite roughly 50,000 fewer tickets being sold. Read More

Written by Linda Rosenkrantz for Nameberry

For Halloween, what could be more bewitching than the names of witches? And the good thing is that they’re not all — the baby names or the witches — hideously ugly with warts and moles and hair on their chinny-chin-chins. And they’re not all totally evil either. In addition to the traditionally witchy witches, pop culture has brought us some who are nice and funny and even beautiful — think Charlize Theron, Julia Roberts, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kim Novak. Here’s a mix of witch-inspired names for your Halloween baby. Read More
