I agree that Come from Away will definitely recoup and probably pretty soon. Anastasia looks like a probable hit; word of mouth on the street is very strong (although mixed on the board) plus it's in the right sized theater. I'm not so sure about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory -- it's a lot harder to recoup in a big theater like the Lunt-Fontanne -- word of mouth on the street is kinda good (but not nearly as strong as that for Anastasia). Families seem to like it despite its flaws -- Borle and the title I guess are the draw (despite terrible word of mouth on ATC). It will need to gross a million plus for at least a year to recoup -- I think we need to wait and see on this one. A Bronx Tale has been on a steady decline for weeks -- it's probably just breaking even right now -- nobody here talks about it much -- I really liked it. Today's grosses for Comet should be pretty revealing one way or another.
