Interesting question. The Belasco is only selling 817 of its 1,018 seats, closing the balcony, and the Booth seats 783.

We've all recounted anecdotal evidence of the occupancy at performances attended, yet the issue with Girl from North Country seems to be the reliance on discounting. It was on TDF for every performance other than this week-end's, and I twice sat in what might be dubbed premium seats for $57. You can't pay bills with those sums. A check of Telecharge reveals: the show had zero advance, this Sunday's close was almost completely unsold on Monday of this week. I don't know how the producers might raise the profile of the piece, its title doesn't fully suggest its rich experience, those 22 songs so elegantly arranged. But the company is not small, and it can't be done on a shoestring.
