"All is Calm" is performed by three actors, foreground, and nine singers from Cantus / Photo by Rick Spaulding.

Just got off the phone with Kim Motes, managing director of  Theater Latte Da. She said "All is Calm" sold a freckle more than 5,000 seats in six shows at the Pantages Theatre. That's about 84 percent capacity, and is up from 4,477 last year.

The theatrical concert, performed with the choral group Cantus, tells the story of soldiers who practiced an informal truce along the front lines in on Christmas in 1914. First performed in a concert version in 2007, artistic director Peter Rothstein expanded the staging last year into the Pantages.

Motes said she hadn't figured out money figures yet. Seats went for $35 on the main floor and $27.50 in the balcony. There was some student/senior and rush discounting, but fewer comps than last year.

The figures made "All is Calm" Latte Da's box office champion, beating out "The Full Monty," which sold just under 5,000 tickets barely two months ago at the Ordway's McKnight Theatre.

"It's been a good year," Motes said.

No kidding.
