I am going to the final Sunday performance at the end of the month, but I would hate it if the theatre was half-empty or something. Any news on what ticket sales are like for this performance ? Do people think it will be full or not ?

It's a shame that the last couple of weeks have been so bad, but I think the last performace will have a great audience. A lot of the fans that have enjoyed the show in the past are apparently making plans to be at the last one, and I think the house will be full.
It will be a very fitting send-off.

As a rule,I think most last shows are well-attended...even shows that have not done well financially for a period of time. Nostalgia and curiosity play a part. Some theatergoers love the atmosphere and the charge of a final performance. I know Side Show,for example,had an incredible final performance. Taboo,I believe,had a big audience for its last show. I wouldn't be surprised if Dance of the Vampires had a good crowd. These shows had a more unfortunate run than did this production,by far. So I wouldn't be concerned about low attendance,especially since it's been some time since the final notice was posted. It's a bit different,I'm sure,when the final notice is put up quickly (probably Never Gonna Dance had a smaller crowd,since that posted a final notice after Gypsy's first and closed before Gypsy's original closing date. But I could be wrong. And I could be wrong,but that show never seemed to attract a hardcore group,as the above shows did. In Dance of the Vampires,perhaps not in the way the creators intended. Poor Michael Crawford.).

I would not be worried about small attendance numbers. Not for this show.

May 30 will be my first last performance.
I'm hoping the audience will be full of Bernadette and Gypsy idolaters -- the hard core, as the previous poster said.

I hope to show Ms. Peters and this wonderful cast what a pleasure and privilege it has been to have seen this show (and again and again...). It was something very special.

Off topic: anyone in the DC area, try to see Patricia Clarkson in "Streetcar" at the Kennedy Center. Her performance as Blanche is something special too.
