In January, a couple of months after the Broadway production of Caprio’s opera opened at the Metropolitan Opera House, my colleague Mark Maunder reported that Capri had become a hit, topping the box office for the first time ever.
I was there to write about that news.
And then on Tuesday, I saw a video of Capris at the top of the New York Times bestseller list, as the top-seller for the week ending April 25, 2019.
That was the day the Broadway version of the play premiered in Los Angeles, and now it’s on the verge of overtaking the record for the most-ordered plays in history.

Here’s how Capri’s popularity actually began: In April of 2026, the Broadway world was shocked to see the first recorded performance of The Winter’s Tale.
The film was not only the first feature film directed by a male director, it was also the first film to win the Oscar for Best Picture.
(In fact, it took a full year to win Best Picture, thanks to a special motion picture Oscar for the film that went to Gone With the Wind .)
The first record-setting performance of the opera was the opening of Capriccio’s “Capricciore” at the New Amsterdam Opera House in February of 2027, followed by the opening in October of the Capri “Capri” in New York City.
The New York premiere of Caprizino’s Capricciores opera was also a record for Broadway: In March, it eclipsed the previous record for a Broadway play set in the year 2035, held by David Fincher’s The Social Network .
In 2020, the play’s performance surpassed the Broadway record for most plays in one year, set in 2018.
It’s not just the record that Capricco’s Capri has now broken, but also the record set in 2020.
That milestone, set on February 15, 2019, came about thanks to the success of the Broadway play “The Nutcracker,” which premiered in October, with a record-breaking performance from the cast and the audience.
Capricri’s Capriziore won the New Jersey Theater of the Year Award in October and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical Theatre.
That’s one of the biggest honors in Broadway, and it’s a rare award that goes to a play that’s performed in front of an audience.
The Nutcrackers is the only other Broadway play to win an Academy Award nomination.
The play itself has a strong cast and a strong audience: Its stars include Emma Thompson, Emily Blunt, and Mark Ruffalo.
It won two Tony Awards, and was a Tony nominee for Best Play.
But its most recent Tony nomination was for Best Orchestrations, and its performance was the biggest of the night.
The audience was a mix of children and adults.
Capri became a big hit in New Jersey.
In the city’s most populous borough, Newark, Capri reached a staggering 80,000 tickets sold.
That number is more than the total number of tickets sold for the entire 2016 Broadway season.
New Jersey’s record was the second highest-selling Broadway show in the state, behind only the Tony-winning Tony Award-winning musical Hamilton.
The Broadway version became a runaway success in New Orleans, where it was played on the Louisiana Opera stage in 2019.
Its run in New England helped boost its Broadway numbers to more than 3 million tickets sold, according to the Broadway League.
In 2019, it had more than 7 million tickets bought, which was more than double the number of people who came to see it on Broadway in the first two weeks of its run.
I can only imagine how many Capri fans have been wondering what they missed out on in New London.
Capri was the first New York musical to win multiple Tony Awards.
The most recent was for best song, for “Dances with Wolves.”
The New York version also won the Tony Awards for best musical and best song.
What was it like to be a fan?
It was so much fun.
There were so many wonderful people at all the performances.
Everyone from the dancers, to the musicians, to everyone in between, everyone who was there was so kind.
It was such a pleasure to be there.
It’s a joy to see a Broadway production, especially one that I’ve always loved, like the show “The Book of Mormon,” which was a huge hit.
But to see someone perform “Caprice,” and then a Broadway version, was just phenomenal.
They were both amazing.
It really felt like they were trying to create something new. How did
