Broadway industries, Ltd, the financial wing of New York’s Broadway theaters has released his forecasted financial report for 2008, and things don’t look so good. According to today’s announcement, Broadway is expecting a 1.5 million dollar pre-tax loss in 2008.

A slow economy is thought to be the main cause for the huge deficit, which should not be construed as a lack of interest in theater or the arts in the Big Apple. The report further proclaimed that Broadway promises to return to “acceptable profitability” in 2009.

When reporting its interim profit in late March of this year, Broadway Industries, Ltd. said it expected modest growth of around 1.29 Million dollars. The company said today that after finalizing numbers and figures, that the goal of modest growth would not be achieved in 2008.

If you love the theater, get out there and buy Broadway tickets online and help make 2009 a profitable year, not only for Broadway, but for the arts in general. Hopefully as the economy improves, luxuries such as Broadway theater and the arts will bounce back after a slow year.

Going into Tuesday night’s series opener against Boston, there was a lot of buzz around the division about the Yankees current winning streak, as well as their dire need to continue that streak against the visiting Red Sox. When Johnny Damon led the Yankees off with a solo homerun in the first inning, it seemed that they may be on their way to doing just that.

Much of the speculation revolved around the Yankees need to either sweep or to take the first two games (when the Red Sox pitching would be weakest). The Yankees were unable to hold on to their lead and a two run third and a three run fifth from Boston sealed the Red Sox 7-3 victory.

Johnny Damon went on to hit another home run in the fifth as well, to provide two-thirds of the Yankees offense, while three hits from Coco Crisp, and two RBI from Jason Bay led the way for the Red Sox.

The situation in the AL East is more or less unchanged as Tampa Bay holds the division lead with the Red Sox now 3.5 back and the Yankees standing at a “backs against the wall” disadvantage of 9.5 games back.

This will be an historic series one way or another as this will likely be the last time that the arch-rival Boston Red Sox visit Yankee Stadium. Don’t let anything come in the way of seeing the two most tradition-rich teams go at it one last time in the league’s most tradition-rich ballpark – pick up your NY Yankees tickets today and be a part of the action as Paul Bird and Jon Lester lead the Red Sox against the Yankees’ Sidney Ponson and veteran Mike Mussina.

So many of the young stars from American Idol have made a name for themselves in the music industry since the show’s inception. Kelly Clarkson, Chris Daughtry, and Carrie Underwood have all become huge successes through album releases, touring, etc., bringing home CMAs, Grammys, and numerous other awards for their hard work and talent.

Another popular stop for American Idol stars has been Broadway. Clay Aiken has appeared in the Monty Python musical Spamalot, while Season three winner Fantasia has starred in Oprah Winfrey’s production of A Color Purple. Other Idol-to-Broadway stars include, Diana DeGarmo, Josh Strickland, Amy Adams, Jennifer Hudson, and Tamyra Gray.

We can now add another to the list, as Ace Young the ultra-popular crooner from season five who won over audiences (females in particular) with his good looks and talented singing voice. Young has just been added to this fall’s cast of Grease where he will portray Kenickie.

Broadway tickets are available now for Grease at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Young is scheduled to begin his run on September ninth, so snatch up those tickets quickly and see one of American Idol’s brightest stars shine on Broadway

Despite taking a 3-0 lead early in their game against Houston on Sunday, the Mets were unable to hold off the Astros, who bounced back and won the 10 inning affair 6-4. The Mets struck first, scoring two runs in the first inning and another in the third, before a three run fourth from the Astros tied the game up. Each team would plate one more run before the 9th as the game entered extra innings in a 4-4 tie.

In the 10th inning, it was all Astros, as Houston homered twice off of the Mets’ Pedro Feliciano to secure the victory. Houston led off the 10th inning with a home run to Brad Ausmus, before chalking up the first two outs of the inning. With two outs and no one on, Darrin Erstad also hit a solo home run to procure the 6-4 victory.

The Mets are now looking at a meager half-game lead over Philadelphia. With five games coming up during the next two weeks between the two NL East leaders, both teams will have a chance to make their own destiny. The first two of these games are a two-game series starting tonight that could help either team establish a bit more of a lead. Grab some Mets tickets and see the action for yourself. It’s going to be good!

The weekly Hot Tickets have been determined and here is the top 5 list:

  1. South Pacific
  2. Lion King
  3. In The Heights
  4. Walking with Dinosaurs
  5. Phantom of the Opera

Walking With Dinosaurs was a bit of a suprise for me but with our strong NY Tri State Area presence and the Dinosaurs coming to the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ… I guess it shouldn’t come as a shock! In fact, I think I might want to go see them… looks pretty cool!

This week’s series between the Yankees and Blue Jays was taylor-made to give the Yankees an opportunity to gain on the division leading Red Sox and Rays, but was also a perfect opportunity for the Blue Jays to make a move on the AL East’s 3rd place spot – a spot currently occupied by the Yankees.

After winning the first game of the series on Tuesday, the Jays had the opportunity to tie the Yankees in the division with a series sweep. After winning on Wednesday, the Yankees made that possibility null and void, however a 14-3 thrashing by Toronto sent New York packing with a one game lead over Toronto for the3rd place spot.

At this point neither of these teams is likely to acquire a playoff spot, much less a division crown – as the Red Sox and Rays continue to play well and the Yankees continue to fall. Despite their recent surge, Toronto is unlikely to climb out of fourth place in the division, however stranger things have happened.

The lop-sided loss to Toronto on Thursday was exactly what the Yankees didn’t need. With a full slate of NY Yankee games forthcoming against Tampa Bay, Chicago, Boston, and The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, they need to win all of their games against non-division leading teams. Furthermore, they certainly don’t need any more moral-damaging 10 plus run losses.

Atlanta’s rookie pitcher, Jair Jurrjens pitched a fairly good game on Wednesday for all intents and purposes, giving up four earned runs in a little over five innings of work. In addition, the right hander only gave up six hits the surging New York Mets. However, as is often the case in the game of baseball, his efforts were not enough.

A slow start, as well as some crucial fielding errors by his defense, put Jurrjens’ back against the wall early – very early. With two outs and one on in the first inning, it looked as though Jurrjens was out to a strong start, however, five runs later, it seemed as though a loss was imminent…and it was.

Back to back walks served up to Carlos Delgato and Carlos Beltran loaded the bases. Then consecutive singles by Daniel Murphy and Fernando Tatis followed by a throwing error and another single from Mike Pelfrey helped the Mets throw up a five-spot in the first. A David Wright homer in the fifth would complete the offensive production for the Mets, but enough was enough, and the Mets coasted to a 6-3 victory.

Fans with Mets tickets have a chance to see something special this year, as the Mets are proving to be one of the best teams in the NL – day in and day out… and so far, there’s no indication of a late-season collapse.

A planned revival of the 1970s hippy-chic musical Godspell has been postponed and will no longer be hitting the stage this fall as previously planned. Producer Adam Epstein said, “I am devastated that, due to the loss of a major investor and the harsh reality of a slowing economy, there will be no other options at this time than to postpone.”

Godspell had been scheduled to open on October 23rd in the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Broadway. This could be the first of several planned shows that succumb to the suffering economy that has made this summer’s Broadway season one of the slowest in recent history.

Reports are showing that a growing number of planned shows may not see the light of day this fall as nervous, recession-minded patrons are not buying Broadway tickets in the numbers that executives would like to see.

Howard Sherman, executive director of the American Theater Wing thinks that there may still be hope, “It’s impossible not to be cognizant of the national economy and its potential impact on the theater. But it’s also premature to say whether the recent changes in plans by certain shows represent a trend, especially as we’re likely to see other productions quickly step up to fill the available theaters in their stead,” he said.

Will Broadway be the next victim of our suffering economy? Or will Godspell be an isolated incident as the shows continue to go on? I guess only time will tell.

The New York Yankees are a proud and historic organization and will be playing in one of the nation’s most famous ballparks for the final time at the end of this season. However, the club is on the verge of ending their relationship with Yankee Stadium prematurely as they are in serious danger of missing the playoffs this year.

While there will full house after full house of fans buying NY Yankees tickets throughout the coming weeks, there may not be as much cause for celebration, as the Yanks stand 10 full games out of first place in the division and five-and-a-half out of the wildcard lead.

What’s worse, is that the team’s September slate is chock full of difficult opponents including six games against the AL East leading Rays as well as three game series against division leaders, Los Angeles, Chicago, as well as their final series in Boston.

What does this all mean? The Yankees need to start winning now, if they plan on prolonging their season – and the legacy of Yankee Stadium – beyond September.

Johan Santana needed no help in shutting down the Pittsburg Pirates on Sunday, as he threw a complete game shutout for the Mets who dispatched the Bucs 4-0 to maintain the NL East lead.

A two-run homer in the second inning by Brian Schneider would have been enough for the Mets to taste victory in and of itself, but Carlos Beltran added some additional run support for Santana with a solo home run of his own in the sixth inning. For Beltran, it was his 17th long ball of the season, while Schneider took his fourth trip around the bases.

For Pittsburg, their lack of offense was nearly matched by their lack of defense and pitching. Jeff Karstens gave up all four runs (all were earned) in addition to nine hits in six innings pitched, while the Pirates defense made two fielding errors that allowed innings to continue. Jack Wilson and Andy LaRoche provided all of the Pirates offense with two hits for Wilson and one for LaRoche.

The Mets and Pirates are scheduled to meet again on Monday with John Maine taking the hill for New York, while Paul Maholm is set to take the mound for Pittsburg. Mets tickets are still available for the game so get out to the ballpark for some August baseball!

Thanks to in part to a pair of 7-3 runs, as well as a Red Sox four game winning streak, the New York Yankees have found themselves facing a huge deficit as the season comes to a close. A Yankee 3-7 streak came at a bad time as New York now trails Tampa Bay by 9.5 games in the American League East standings.

In the toughest division in baseball, the Tampa Bay Rays have thrown a wrench in the usual combination of the Red Sox and Yankees into the playoffs, as they lead by three games over Boston. Boston, in turn, is three games ahead of Minnesota in the Wild Card standings with six weeks left regular season play.

After a strong start following the All Star break, the Yankees made what were thought to be key moves prior to the trade deadline, and continued their dominance, however, the last two weeks have not treated the Yankees so well, has they have found themselves falling deeper and deeper into the division hole.

Yankee fans still have hope, however, as the Rays have a very difficult schedule facing them in the final few weeks. Meanwhile, the Yankees have a fairly favorable schedule outside of a couple of series each with Boston and Tampa Bay. It could all come down to a late September series in Fenway Park to decide the fate of the division – wouldn’t that be appropriate?

The New York Mets are in a tie for the NL Eastern Division lead after the Dodgers capped off a comeback win against the Phillies and the Mets routed Washington. The Mets dispatched The Nationals 12-0 behind a solid pitching performance by John Maine, and an all-out offensive blitz, including home runs by Fernando Tatis, and Daniel Murphy. The Mets Converted 13 hits into 12 runs, while Maine gave up only four hits in the shutout victory.

The lopsided victory by the Mets was a precursor to another game that would aid the Mets into a first place tie with Philadelphia – a come from behind win by the Dodgers over Phillies. The Dodgers victory came in the bottom of the ninth as Nomar Garciaparra belted a Clay Condrey pitch over the wall for a walk off victory,

The victory by the Mets and the loss by Philadelphia create a dead heat in the Eastern Division while an Arizona loss to Colorado and the Dodgers victory create the same scenario in the West. With six weeks left in the season, grab your Mets tickets soon and be a part of the action!

Weeds is one of the most popular, but most controversial shows on television. The weekly Showtime show tells the story of a widowed mother who becomes a drug dealer in order to help her raise her children. As the star of a show of such a nature, Mary-Louise Parker is no stranger to controversy and her next stop may be no different.

Parker has agreed to portray Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler in a Broadway revival at the Roundabout Theater in New York. The role has long been considered edgy and risqué, and Paker’s portrayal should be no different.

Parker is certainly most well-known for her role as Nancy Botwin on Weeds, where she has won a Golden Globe and been nominated for an Emmy, however she is no stranger to Broadway either. Parker won a Tony award for her role in Proof and appeard in 2007’s off Broadway run of Dead Man’s Cell Phone.

Parker joins fellow Weeds cast mate, Hunter Parrish, who has taken a role in Spring Awakening. It appears that Broadway has been good to the Showtime actors, giving us just another reason to buy Broadway tickets online.
