We're in that time of year that if you want to go see a Broadway show on the cheap, you'd better move it. From post-Labor Day through Thanksgiving, the Great White Way doesn't see very much action and the theaters all feel the sting right at the beginning of September.
That is, except for The Eugene O'Neill Theatre, home of The Book Of Mormon. In Broadway's annual post-Labor Day slump, the show managed to outsell standards like Wicked and The Lion King, pulling in $1,293,582 last week! Wicked, which has a higher capacity at the Gershwin than the Eugene, only brought in $1,293,582.
God must be on those boys side! Hows it feel to be smooth sailing, Trey Parker and Matt Stone???
