Well, the situation for "Toys in the Attic" involves the strike of June 2-12, 1960.

You're correct it only played four performances its first week, but it shut down due to the strike on Thursday, June 2, 1960, so that was a second week of only four performances.

So 456 -- 464 minus 8 -- is the correct figure.

The more I study Variety the bigger a mess it becomes. For years they considered the week to run from Sunday to Saturday, which is true on the calendar, but it was clear the "theatrical" week was Monday to Sunday, which they didn't wake up to until sometime in the late '60s, I think.

By the way -- while I have you -- how do you get show titles in italics? I tried the [i] [/i] thing and it didn't work for me, and I don't see anything to click on for italics or bold or anything.
