Hillary Clinton-produced Broadway play failing to pack seats at height of show season

 May 12, 2024

Hillary Clinton has failed at quite a few ambitions in her life, including running for the presidency and running on the brink of being booted as the chancellor of an Irish university. 

According to Fox News, Clinton, who recently entered the world of Broadway as a producer for "Suffs," a show about the women's suffrage movement, is also failing at putting on a popular show.

The outlet reported that the Clinton-produced play is suffering at the box office and failing to pack seats during the peak of Broadway season.

It was noted that the case is entirely female and "non-binary" actors.

What's going on?

According to the most recent Broadway numbers, "Suffs" is definitely suffering at the box office, as it remains among the lowest ranks of shows for the most recent week of being live, at least as far as filling seats is concerned.

Fox News noted:

Broadway Theatre Industry official site "The Broadway League" shared the weekly grosses from the 35 shows currently playing on Broadway, which include "Suffs," "Harry Potter and The Cursed Child," and classics like "Romeo & Juliet," Sweeney Tod" and "Moulin Rouge! The Musical."

The data is embarrassing for Clinton and those behind the show, as it revealed that over the past eight performances in the week the numbers were measured, the show only managed to fill 81% of available seats.

The show was not only among the bottom eight shows in that category, but it was the bottom 23% of all 35 shows for the week. Ouch!

Critics said that filling seats at the peak of Broadway season isn't difficult for producers rolling out a brand new show, which should be generating excitement and sold-out performances, making Clinton's entry to the Broadway scene quite embarrassing.

Tying it to politics

In an interview with the Associated Press last month as the show opened, Clinton compared the show to politics.

"I know how important it is to have relationships with the people you’re working for, as you’re taking risks and you’re doing things that have never been done, whether it’s running for president in my case or having a march on Washington in 1913 to try to convince the president and the Congress to adopt the amendment to let women vote," she said at the time.

"But more than that, I see it as relevant today. We have a lot of challenges in our country," she added.

Perhaps Clinton should write this venture off as a loss and move onto something else.
