Taylor Hicks Worth $150,000 a Week in Grease Sales

Taylor Hicks is worth $150,000 a week in sales for the Grease box office. This was reported by the New York Post. It is about time people other than the huge Soul Patrol is recognizing the talent of Taylor Hicks. The post says in part “but its real draw this summer is "American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks, who's playing Teen Angel.
An insider says Hicks is worth at least $150,000 in extra ticket sales a week.

(Make a note of that, Mr. Agent.)

Whenever Hicks whips out his harmonica, the audience goes nuts.

They're having such a blast that the "Grease" mega mix at the end of the show - this is where the critics ran screaming from the theater - now runs 10 minutes, with Hicks singing the title song and then playing it on his harmonica.

Meanwhile, the producers of the show are no longer flinching from the critical blows but are starting to have fun with them.

I just love reading this review. It put a smile of my face this morning to read such positive news.

Not really related to this at all but I was considering trying to go and see Grease, a friend told me to stay at a laughlin hotels but a little research online shows these hotels are in NV, so I do not know what my friend was thinking of. Guess I’ll have to call ask her.
