Nick Jonas Weaker Box Office Draw

Nick Jonas Broadway box office draw in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is not as strong at Darrne Criss and Daniel Radlcliffe, Nick took in just under $683,000 for the week ending Jan. 29, a steep 48 percent drop from Glee star Darren Criss’ third and final week in the show, $1.32 million.

Nick booked 80 percent of the seats, How to Succeed took in less than half its potential gross and the average ticket price fell to just under $75. He has joined the Drama League’s Feb. 6 Benefit Gala, A Musical Celebration of Broadway

Honoring Tony and Emmy Award Winner Kristin Chenoweth, which will be held at the Pierre Hotel in New York City. Evan Pappas directs the tribute that has a book by Stephen Cole and musical direction by Steve Freeman.

Selections from Wicked, Glee, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown; Candide; Promises, Promises; Annie; The Music Man; Steel Pier; A New Brain; The Apple Tree and more. Jonas will join the previously announced Joel Grey..

    Sales are always low in January/February. Criss did well because fans knew he’d only be there for 3 wks. Nick runs thru June so theres no rush. Ticket sales were soft across the board for all productions except Jersey Boys, Lion King, Wicked. Radcliffe would’ve dropped sales this time of year also. So everybody calm down. I saw HTS on Saturday, his vocals and dancing were terrific, his acting was a bit predictable but I believe his character is written that way. Either way, if thats a weakness, he’ll fix it within his first few weeks. He was truly charming.

    Has nothing to do with fans. They show up, yes, but from the show I was at, they accounted for maybe 20% of the audience. They weren’t seated in the hot spots, they did account for a large amount of merch sales, but no one is counting on them to make this work long-term. Hes good enough to be respected by the hardcore older theatergoers that sat around me, to the point that every one of them was taken aback by how skillful he was at portraying a long-beloved character. He isn’t doing this for fans, hes doing this for respect and to get ahead in an industry that doesn’t get by on the fickle buying habits of teenies.

    not to mention, most merch is purchased in person, and you need a ticket to get in. just thought I’d add that in there. I agree with everything else.

    I think he’ll be fine ;)

  • Jonasinoursoul

    HAHAHAHA I bet Darren made more in his 3 weeks than Nick will make in 6 months. Darren is so much more talented and popular. I’m glad that there are finally statistics that prove that.

    Nick has been irrelevant since 2010. Nobody really cares anymore. I used to be his biggest fan, but I moved on cause I got bored. JB can’t expect people to keep supporting them. They took too long of a break from music.
    ——————————–

    You are a Bieber fan, aren’t you? Believe me, if you’re saying that kind of bullshit then you NEVER was a real fan. Thank god you’re out, Nick doesn’t deserve that kind of people by his side. Real fans are staying close and waiting till they’re ready to be back as it happends to every single band that take their time to create an album or doing different things in the midddle.

  • neelie

    I wonder what will happen if it keeps going downhill from here. I disagree about the part about fans.The reason they hired Darren was cause of fans. The reason they hired Nick for Les Mis & this was for the fans. The fans need to go if they can.

  • elizagutierrez

    Sorry but the truth is that Nick is NOT doing that good in Broadway!! that’s what I hear!

    Nick and the Jonas Brothers are DUNZO!!!

    nick’s fans have 7 months to go see the show .That’s why no one’s in a hurry
    Darren’s was only 3 weeks so of course his fans got to go during these 3 weeks only and that’s why they went in big numbers

    lol can’t understand a word of your horrific English.
    and it seems you’re the one with the obsession. you can’t go a single post without mentioning Nick or Delta. so sad to have a one-track mind like that.
    and you never seem to be able to offer any proof of Delta’s alleged cheating. oh right, that’s because it only happened in your head. tsk* sad.

    jonashead, since you live in Australia, would you mind letting me know if a premiere date for The Voice has been released? I can seem to find it online, and I’d appreciate it if you knew the date :)
    thanks.

    Yes there is a small fan element to hiring Nick but Broadway producers know that teens can’t afford $100 for a ticket ($200 if they take a parent) so they know that dies down quickly. Nick has been purpisely restructuring his career to put distance between being a teen idol and an actual professional. His role was given to him because he was the strongest of those being considered. Btw, meech isn’t just available IN the theatre; when I went Saturday posters, programs and bow ties were being sold on the sidewalk in front of the theatre by theatre employees. This is Broadway, this is a current musical. This isn’t a last ditch effort by a producer to eek out a few more seat sales by hiring a stunt player like for Les Mis. Nick showed he can perform based on his positive reviews in Hairspray.

    The fans still need to go. He’s got months and months of performances to fill up. I guess the fans in the NY area either have no money or they’ve moved on. They need to get them back. Soon.

    I’ve heard of people who have seen it multiple times already, in his first week already. crazy.

    Oh Wow. So happy for Samantha Barks. She’s going to be Eponine in the movie Les Miz. Not Taylor Swift. She really deserves it. Guess Nick’s not going to be Marius, though. Some other older actor.

    nick’s fans have 7 months to go see the show .That’s why no one’s in a hurry
    Darren’s was only 3 weeks so of course his fans got to go during these 3 weeks only and that’s why they went in big numbers
    some people just do not have any bit of sense
    besides who the hell is going out of town when they have school ?
    I think AND HOPE things will get better later

    I think there was a single review of nick’s performance

    if this doesn’t prove talents in the three Finches, I don’t know what does. word of mouth is the best advertisement there is, and if people aren’t talking, people won’t go spend their money. Daniel broke a nine-show-week record, and Darren’s last week reached over the million mark. Nick is a good Finch… just not as good as Daniel and Darren.
