A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC Revival Financial Prospects

Variety has offered up some speculations about the financial prospects of the revival of A Little Night Music. They think things look good:

In its first two weeks, the production has grossed more than $1.5 million, a solid sum for seven-perf weeks in a smaller house like the Walter Kerr Theater. For the week ending Dec. 6, it played to auds at 96% capacity. Such sales seem to indicate strong audience interest in the title…. And it helps, of course, that the production is toplined by high-profile thesps Catherine Zeta-Jones (in her Main Stem debut) and Angela Lansbury…. [T]his version, capitalized at a relatively low $4.8 million, will have to pull off recoupment in an economic climate where auds are far more cautious in their spending.

Of course, the reviews haven’t come out yet. I wonder what effect they will have on the show’s ticket sales.
