“Harry Potter” London Premiere Cost Daniel Radcliffe’s Broadway Show $400K
HollywoodNews.com: This is how not to succeed in business: Broadway’s “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” had to shut down for two nights last week so Daniel Radcliffe could be in London promoting “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2.” The result? The “How to Succeed” box office fell from $1.13 million to $749,000.
There were reports that Warner Bros., the “Harry Potter” studio, had bought out the shows. But the box report indicates a week to week loss of $382,866 with no mention of the studio pitch in. That amount of money is nothing to WB or the “Harry Potter” franchise, but on Broadway it’s a fortune. It’s actually more than several shows made last week, including “Master Class,” “Hair,” Ghetto Klown,” and “Jerusalem.” Maybe WB will set that straight with a whisk of a magic wand!
