    Hamilton at Richard Rodgers Theatre near Times Square remains closed following restrictions imposed to slow the spread of coronavirus on January 15, 2021 in New York City.Cindy Ord | Getty Images "Hamilton," "Wicked" and "The Lion King," three of Broadway's cornerstones, are set to reopen on Sept. 14. The three productions jointly announced their return date on "Good Morning America" Tuesday. Tickets are now on sale. The news comes just one week after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that Broadway theaters would reopen just after Labor Day at full capacity. At that time, the governor did not specify which shows would be operating on this timeline, as individual productions may require more time to hire or rehire actors, crew and other in-house employees as well as conduct rehearsals. The timeline also depends on the state government's approval of each theaters' health and safety protocols. "Aladdin," "Six," "Come From Away," and "Chicago" are expected to reopen in September while "Jagged Little Pill," "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Ain't Too Proud" have opening dates set in October.

    PEORIA, Ariz. — Oakland A’s fans were able to redeem single-game ticket vouchers on Thursday morning. But they were met with a flurry of red warnings when the A’s ticket site prevented them from buying the tickets. The A’s ticket site, run by Tickets.com, was victim to a cyberattack, team president Dave Kaval said. In essence, script overruns the site that generates a denial of service attack, which means no one trying to enter the ticket site can get access. “Some people got through before, but Tickets.com said it’s one of the worst attacks they’ve seen,” Kaval said. The “denial of service attack” is a script that overruns the site, which prevents people entering after the attack from having access to purchase tickets. The site is currently back up and running for fans with vouchers to buy tickets, but it still posed difficulties. A number of fans trying to purchase tickets said the site would time out with an error message, or it would process the transaction at a glacial pace. Chris Higgins, a longtime...

    Disney Things are looking up for the domestic box office. In recent months, ticket sales have been accelerating, a sign that moviegoers are ready to return to theaters. Encouraged by the trend, some studios have moved up release dates. Over the weekend, ticket sales reached an estimated $25 million, which would be the best showing since the pandemic forced theaters to close about a year ago if those numbers hold when the final tally comes in late Monday. The sales bump comes as the U.S. continues a robust rollout of vaccines and states have begun to loosen restrictions on indoor movie theaters. Last Friday was the first time New York City movie theaters were able to reopen in nearly a year.

Super Bowl LV in Tampa Bay, Florida, is scheduled for Sunday, and the league will officially wrap up its 2020 season. It's estimated the NFL lost out on up to $4 billion in revenue as the Covid-19 pandemic cut into ticket sales, but the league told CNBC its national partnerships, which bring in roughly $1 billion, weren't hurt. In an interview with CNBC, NFL Chief Revenue Officer Renie Anderson confirmed the league added four new categories and renewed major companies like Visa to keep its blue-chip corporate sponsors total at 36. Companies including Postmates, Subway and Hyperice joined the league's portfolio, while North Carolina-based Truist Bank is now leasing the NFL's retail banking slot.

    DES MOINES, Iowa -- The jackpot for the Mega Millions lottery game has grown to $1 billion ahead of Friday night's drawing after more than four months without a winner thanks to bad luck, poor odds and reduced play partially blamed on the coronavirus pandemic.It's only the third time a lottery jackpot has grown so large, but much has changed since the last time such a big prize was up for grabs in 2018. The odds of winning a jackpot remain the same - incredibly small - but for a variety of reasons fewer people are playing Mega Millions or Powerball, the two lottery games offered in most of the country.And even as the huge Mega Millions prize and a $731.1 million Powerball jackpot won Wednesday by a single ticket sold in Maryland have juiced sales for the games, Maryland lottery director Gordon Medenica noted: "We're not out of the woods yet."Medenica acknowledged sales were dramatically lower before the pandemic, and they tanked even further in the spring and summer.After a peak in October 2018, Medenica said sales of the...
    (CBS4) – The next Mega Millions drawing is on Jan. 22 and it will be for an estimated jackpot of $970 million. The Powerball drawing is Wednesday night with an estimated jackpot of $730 million. With the combined jackpot of almost $1.7 billion, it’s no wonder why people would go to a convenience store and try out their luck. (credit: CBS) “I would pay off all my debts and then I would invest in stocks,” said Roberto Lerma, who was buying several lottery tickets and and agreed to talk about it in an interview with CBS4. The odds at winning the jackpot come with almost impossible odds to win. Try one in 302 million. “The odds are very long to win the jackpot, but I think that’s part of what makes it so appealing is that, if you are the lucky one and someone will win it at some point, they know they’ve beaten incredible odds. And the reward will be great,” said Tom Seaver, Director of the Colorado Lottery. No matter who wins the draw, the biggest winners aren’t...

The goal for the rest is to win financially. © USA TODAY Sports The best, but surely not the easiest, way to do that comes from generating interest. The best, and definitely not easiest, way to do that comes from winning. When all else fails, hire a big-name coach or acquire one or more big-name players. That’s what the Jaguars have done with the arrival of Urban Meyer. Via ESPN.com, the news quickly generated a spike in season-ticket sales. Half of the total deposits arrived on Thursday after the announcement was made. As of Friday, the Jaguars were eight times ahead of last year’s pace.

    Warner Bros. blockbuster “Wonder Woman 1984” topped the domestic box office for the third weekend in a row, but ticket sales fell off dramatically amid the coronavirus pandemic. The superhero action flick starring Gal Gadot reeled in $3 million between Friday and Sunday, bringing its total in the US and Canada to nearly $33 million, which marked a 47 percent drop in sales, according to ticket sales tracker Box Office Mojo. Overseas, the movie nabbed almost $5 million for a foreign tally of $99 million, bringing its overall haul to $131 million globally. Even though the movie has outperformed most pandemic-era rivals at the box office, experts say it won’t make up for the film’s hefty $200 million production budget, and it will lose money for the studio. Parent company WarnerMedia made a controversial bet to make “Wonder Woman,” which premiered in cinemas on Christmas Day, simultaneously available on its streaming service, HBO Max. The company also said it was putting its entire 2021 slate of films on HBO Max, in order to bolster the nascent service and...
    This TikTok-born meme musical has manifested some very real money. The pre-filmed “Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical” debuted online Friday for a three-day streaming run and immediately racked up more than $1 million in ticket sales. “You did it! You raised over $1 million to benefit @TheActorsFund!” the musical’s Twitter account tweeted on New Year’s Day. The musical concept began on TikTok in August, after New Yorker Em Jaccs posted a clip of her love ballad for the protagonist of Disney’s 2007 film “Ratatouille.” A niche of creators on the social-media platform then began proposing various elements for a DIY musical version of the film, including set designs, backup dancer design sketches and solo songs for smaller characters. By October, a centralized @RatatouilleTheTikTokMusical account had been born, and in December, bona fide production company Seaview began collaborating on making the musical a reality. A star-studded cast — including Wayne Brady (“Kinky Boots”), Adam Lambert (“Wicked” tour), Tituss Burgess (“The Little Mermaid”) and Ashley Park (“Mean Girls”) — was revealed just before the end of the year. Tickets cost $5...
