Business on the resident circuit was up during Week 22 (Oct. 28 to Nov. 3), with 15 of the 25 productions showing significant gains and only five stumbling. Two held about even and three were first-weekers.

Staying steady were “House of Blue Leaves” in Albany and “Twelfth Night” in Seattle. The three newcomers were “Ain’t Misbehavin’ “in Allentown, Pa., “Forever Plaid” in San Diego and “Alfred Stieglitz Loves O’Keefe” in Seattle. The first two were particularly strong, the latter just OK.

The sliders were “Prelude to a Kiss” in Chicago, “Night of the Iguana” in Cleveland, “Shirley Valentine” in Philadelphia, “Halcyon Days” in Seattle and “Amadeus” in Wilmington, Del. Latter show dropped a performance during its final week.
