Would a top ten mean much? In that a sell out at full price at somewhere small wont come close to a mostly discounted, not at capacity palladium.

Perhaps we should first understand the reasons for the weekly publication of film box office grosses:

Then we could consider why these reasons don't map on to the theatre industry.

I see no reason?

Well, if a show was constantly one of the most popular on the west end, then surely that's a good thing?

If they were released, I'd rather they followed the example of concerts and gigs - how many seats were sold (and out of how many), alongside the gross. But it should be ranked by percentage of seats sold, giving it an edge of fairness - we can then see if something's only selling based on discounted tickets from the gross ourselves.

I'm curious to know why anyone thinks it's to a producer's advantage  to publicise the fact a show is doing badly. And if only yje` successful shows were listed, we'd all draw our own conclusions anyway

The chart for Broadway grosses does show the gross potential, the number of seats sold versus the capacity so I imagine that what a West End chart would be like.

I'd be interested to know how much money the leads etc. and the ensemble make per week.

Sorry, but I'm just as interested as knowing what you earn as you are in knowing what West End performers earn.
