B'way B.O. Watch

Ticket sales, that is. Not Broadway Odor.

In the week starting January 1: Company dipped 17%; Grey Gardens 21%; Little Dog Laughed 17%.

Spring Awakening? Dipped only 1.3%. Down to a still impressive 83% capacity. Pretty odds-defying.

Little Dog Laughed also just posted a closing notice for next month. I weep no tears for it, don't get me wrong. It's a small show that ideally would find a home in a small house playing more comfortably to the 400-500 or so people enjoying it every night now. But along with its two fellow sufferers, it represents what's left of "adult" content on the Rialto.
