It's Been A Gloomy Fall For New Shows On Broadway
"Of the 19 plays and musicals that opened on Broadway during the second half of 2012, only 2 have caught fire with ticket buyers, in large part thanks to a famous star in the cast (Al Pacino of Glengarry
) and a famous title (the musical Annie
). ... Indeed, the two best-reviewed shows of the fall have emerged as two of the worst sellers on Broadway."
