So if it's losing money and only being kept afloat by a rich producer you find that impressive?

I think Judy Craymer will eventually pull the plug, I imagine it has probably eaten through its advance already.

Yeah, so well they knock 50% off the price purely as a goodwill gesture.

It doesn't sell well at all. Friday night and the upper circle closed how on earth can you sat it is selling well.

The Upper Circle seating section was closed on Friday night's performance? I certainly haven't heard of that before for a musical, so that is pretty concerning for a musical. It seriously can't be selling that great at all if they can't even sell those seats. I sense it may close by August.

Its not uncommon for the upper levels to be closed. But it does mean a show isnt selling and is on its last legs (if its a regular occurance)

Yep bodyguard has slowed down on sales.

It can also depend on the night of the week. A mon -thurs night to have upper levels closed is a bit more understandable but if a show regularly has the upper levels closed friday and saturday performances then its in trouble

The upper levels were frequently closed for Spring Awakening at the Novello. A crying shame IMO.
