NEW YORK (AP) -- You've heard of the Grammy boost and the Oscar boost. Now you might have to add the Adele Dazeem boost to the list. The new Broadway musical starring Tony Award-winner Idina Menzel may have gotten a box office boost after John Travolta mangled the star's name at the Oscars. The Broadway League reports the show "If/Then" took in $909,159 over its first seven previews. Those are considered strong numbers for an original show. And it's suspected that publicity from Travolta's gaffe may have helped draw interest. In his Oscar intro a week ago Sunday, Travolta mangled Menzel's name, having it come out sounding more like Adele Dazeem.
