It's a Hit!

Amidst the fears and tears surrounding the current state of Broadway in our local and national economic crises, it's refreshing to hear that a show is a hit! In the Heights announced that they have recouped their initial investment, after 366 performances. The show, currently playing the Richard Rodgers Theatre and the recipient of the 2008 Tony award for Best Musical, has bucked the contemporary trend where it usually takes upwards to two years (or more) for a Broadway musical to make back its money. It is also on my shortlist of excursions to make over the next several weeks.
