After 15 months and three absolutely DEVASTATINGLY handsome leads, the Broadway revival of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying will come to a close on May 20th
The production managed to recoup its $9 million in capitalization costs with the help of the first lead Daniel Radcliffe, who stayed with the show from February of 2011 through December, and even managed to elevate the weekly ticket sales to above $1 million throughout the summer months.
During Darren Criss's subsequent three-week stint in January, the show still pulled in big bucks, but once Nick Jonas took over the role in February, sales slowly dropped - including the week of May 6th, which brought in $367,605 with an audience capacity around 43 percent!
But hey! It will have played 473 performances by the last curtain call later this month, and we think that's a pretty impressive run! And we saw Nick in the show not too long ago. He was sensational! Sometimes, show's just lose their sssssssteam (heat)!
We think everyone involved should be very proud of what they accomplished!
Now keep on breaking those legs for the last hurrah, you guys!
And maybe this means a more permanent position for Nick on SMASH next season??? We're sure he's got something major up his sleeves for his next move!
