Robin Williams Bombing On Broadway

robin-williams-bengal-tiger-show-in-trouble.jpg

These are the kind of numbers that can cause a show to close fairly quickly and swiftly.

Last week, Robin Williams' latest Broadway venture, Bengal Tiger At The Bagdhad Zoo only played to 52% capacity. That means for every performance last week, HALF of the audience was missing.

If these numbers don't go up, or worse, start to decline, the show is in real danger of going under.

Sounds like no one can make a Broadway show work these days, not even vets like Robin!

Does that make you feel any better, Julie Taymor?

Comedians On Broadway! The Numbers Are In!

Congratulations, John Leguizamo! You've come A LONG way since American Buffalo!

Last week, John brought in some very solid #'s with Ghetto Klown, which sold 77% of possible seats, and brought in nearly $350,000.

Robin Williams' comedy Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo sold 73.4% of possible seats, but brought in a gross of nearly $460,000.

Chris Rock's The Motherf*cker With the Hat didn't fare quite so well, with only 66.4% of possible seats filled, and a less-than-impressive $239,000 gross for the week.

Cheer up, Chris! Things can always turn around!

Have U seen any of these comedians on Broadway? If so, what did U think of their performances?
