Audiences are clearly glad to have Al Pacino back on Broadway! The actor is packing in crowds at the Schoenfeld Theatre where Glengarry Glen Ross is currently in previews. The revival played to over 98% capacity and pulled in over $1 million in ticket sales for its second week. Meanwhile the original Jersey Boy himself Frankie Valli played his final concerts at the Broadway Theatre, finishing up his hit run playing to 89% capacity. Porn comedy The Performers also began previews this week, and while Hurricane Sandy forced several shows to cancel Sunday night performances, the storm's impact on the box office won't likely be visible until next week.
