Broadway Grosses* w/e 1/8/2017

Greetings Gross Fans!

 

Looks like we had a successful first full week of 2017! Grosses were up from last year, even though a lot of shows closed in these last two weeks, and we have three shows less than last year. The beginning of a new year is usually hard on Producers since tourists have already taken their holiday breaks and aren’t planning to travel again until the weather warms up.

A lot of shows this season chose not to let that deter them and decided to open in the Fall, giving ticket-buyers a lot of strong options of shows to see in these couple of months before the rush of shows opening in March and April.

New shows Dear Evan Hansen, Natasha Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, and A Bronx Tale pulled in extremely high grosses this week, showing everyone there are new contenders out there for shows to see.
New shows weren’t the only ones with a successful week; Jersey Boys, The Lion King, and The Book of Mormon all brought in strong numbers.

 

And a special congratulations to everyone involved with The Front Page, which just announced recoupment this week!
