My final word on this:

To the "Queen of Broadway" and her consorts:

"Make 'em beg for more...and then don't give it to them!" (My favorite line)

[Jean, whose kitchen is being torn apart in preparation for a new countertop..what noise, what mess, what else to do on an icy day?]

I was so horribly devastated this morning when I found out. I was crying and my roommate had to comfort me. I'm in a show right now where my only free days and nights are Saturdays. I live in Alabama and can't get to NYC in just a day! I've never been and this is just terrible! Let's all pray that they extend it just another week. If they do just another week then I can possibly by some miricle make it!

Bump it with a trumpet!

I am sorry, I truly am, but a part of me has just lit up with hope that if it does might come over to the West End...with a certain curly haired herione of mine. It won't end like this, I just know it won't.

You know I am not that worried becuase I believe the show will be extended and that this is a plublicity stunt. I mean i checked and for the next three weeks the Sat. matinee is sold out. Don't give up hope yet! I still have it. You either got it or you dont. And also there is the chance that it will go to the West End and LOVE visisting beautiful London.

Let's all keep a positive thought and hope fervently for an extension. It could happen. First of all, I am going to gather up a group of friends, buy some tickets, and brave the NY cold! If business improves, and the advance sale looks better, it could run into the Spring or beyond. Stranger things have happened. This is BERNADETTE PETERS in GYPSY! It's got to run longer!

You guys keep saying how you've checked ticket availability and Saturdays are pretty much sold out...but keep in mind that Saturdays have never been a problem for this show. It was Mondays through Thursdays where the ticket sales were low. So try and convince people to go during the week.

If they close this month, she should take it to London. They know what's good theater there...
We know what good theatre is here also. Perceptions of the term "good" might differ, but most people who see Broadway shows are not as mediocor as those who live in London might like to believe. Theatre is a matter of personal taste. I might like Gypsy better than Hairspray; but that doesn't make Hairspray any less creative or deserving of credit.

That would be nice if Gypsy could have a decent run in the West End. I don't know if the Producers would want to risk it after having lost money with the Broadway revival? The same thing could happen there that happened had a good run for about 7 months, and then sales began to drop. Though I think if they gave it more time things would get better.

West End audience are not necessarily savvier than Broadway audiences. I can think of quite a few good Broadway shows that did not go over well in London.

Christine is right, yesterday I checked seating for Mon-Wed performances during the last week of Feb and there are tons of good seats available. I would so go back as much as I could if I lived in the NYC area or if I hadn't gone 2 weeks ago. =(
