Darren Criss misgenders Hedwig on "Live with Kelly and Michael", has horrendous opening week

Due to abysmal opening week numbers, Darren Criss went on a media blitz yesterday. He misgendered Hedwig, the character he's playing, twice on "Kelly and Michael."



His first week, by the numbers:

66.39% of the gross potential for the week was made. 4,203 out of 6,042 seats (6 shows total) were sold. Even if he had gotten all 7 potential shows in, he still would be the Hedwig with the lowest opening week.

For comparison, Neil Patrick Harris made $772,606 (109.57% of the gross potential), Andrew Rannels made $648,738 (82.35% of the gross potential), Michael C. Hall made $600,961 (80.84% of the gross potential), and John Cameron Mitchell made $604,410 (79.79% of the gross potential). Each had 6 or 7 shows their first full weeks.

Another fun fact! Apart from the week of previews (1 performance, $144,194), his first week is the lowest grossing week of the show's entire run. Congrats, Darren!

Update: Darren is now retweeting fans for the sole purpose of adding links to buy tickets from.
