Michael Moore’s Broadway show closes, fails to impress at the box office

response to Michael Moore


From Fox News: Michael Moore’s politically-charged Broadway show failed to bring in the big bucks at the box office.

Moore’s “The Terms of My Surrender” brought in $4.2 million during its 13-week run, according to BroadwayWorld.com, but the site reports that’s less than half of what the play had the potential to make.

The show closed this last weekend.

The liberal documentary maker’s play focused on Moore’s life and criticism of President Trump.

In comparison, “The Glass Menagerie,” the play that ran at the same theater before Moore’s show, brought in $5.4 million with 85 performances. Moore’s show had a total of 83 performances.

The 63-year-old’s show was also not a hit among critics. The New Yorker said Moore “doesn’t have a late-night comedian’s timing. He punctuates his own jokes with nervous giggles, mumbles between lines, and, despite his baggy frame, has little sense of himself as a physical comedian.”

An LA Times reviewer wrote, “I have no political beef with Moore…but I found myself cringing at the self-congratulatory applause that would break out when he would utter one of his pieties. And I lost patience with the way he seemed to want both sympathy for being a victim of the right and adulation for being the champion of all mankind.”

Moore told the Wall Street Journal in an email his show was “the most artistically gratifying experience of my life.”

He also said there are “talks happening about taking this show on the road.”

  5. Taking this show on the road, in Michael Moore’s eyes, probably just means hitting the nearest all-you-can-eat buffet!

  6. “Taking the show on the road” is just another way of saying:
    Get it out of town!

  10. Oh Michael Moore, the extremes he’s got to go through to be noticed! A Muslim he is NOT, He is ugly, fat, obnoxious, dirty looking slob, swine, so his recourse is the pic above. What a pity of a man! He would Be making the greatest contribution if he would jump from 432 Park Avenue, the tallest building in New York.

  11. The fact ANYONE ever “liked” anything this moron ever did is beyond me.

    I’m hearing (this week) that more and more of the media and perhaps the traditional left and liberals are beginning to see the madness of the crap they’ve been fed for years now (by the wacko “progressive”-anarchists) and are starting to turn back against it; this seems like just such an instance.

  12. I heard the theatre had to be thoroughly fumigated, too. I hope Moore takes his show on the road. And leaves it there!

  13. Normal people are not interested in meaningless and hollow platitudes, as this slow-witted dunce found out….. as the Looney Left continues to get exposed–while eating its own–more people will be leaving their ranks. The tide is turning, albeit agonizingly slow….

    That’s more than double of what I’d project.

  16. I guess NYC is not ready yet for a Broadway Vomitorium.

    You’d have to tie me up and duct tape my mouth shut, then drag my wreathing body in there.
