I don't know anything other than what I can read in the grosses but what I see that surprises me is how robust the average ticket price is for Sweeney.

My quick and dirty assessment lately is to look at the grosses and see if they are in 7 figures (or in a smaller house that explains why they are not) and then turn to the average price. A show in double digits and 6 figures is a long shot (and that's being generous), whereas a show in 7 figures and well into 3 digits in average price is very likely succeeding. If Sweeney has not announced recoupment, it has certainly recouped and then some when the books are closed. That's Sweeney. I assume at least one of the stars has a scheduling problem, but I also suspect that Mr. Seller has a few cards he still plans on playing after this. Something tells me he may want top tier talent on the road. (Just a hunch. As I said, I know nothing.)
