Local One members load Todd Rosenthal's impressive set for August: Osage County into the Music Box theatre.
The show is shutting down for a week to change venues. Says Variety:

And the change in theater size also shifts the balance of supply and demand.Really? Maybe if the Music Box were 500 seats, according to these numbers...
"With the numbers we've been doing, we'll be selling out at the Music Box," [Producer Jeffrey] Richards says.
