Broadway Grosses* w/e 2/5/2017 – Temperatures Drop Below Freezing.

Greetings Gross Fans!

 

This week’s numbers aren’t surprising. I told you last week this week wouldn’t be any better…and I was right. Large events like the Presidential Debates, Awards shows, and last weekend’s Super Bowl are always hard weeks for Broadway as they draw many viewers to their TVs and out of our theatres. This week wasn’t any different.

Every show was down, except for two heavy hitters Hamilton and newcomer, Dear Evan Hansen, a show that has been proving itself week after week.

We have started to pick up some of the new spring shows, starting to bring our total number back up to level with last year, including Sunset Boulevard and Sunday in the Park with George, which starts previews on Friday.

We’re facing another so-so week, but expect an industry bounce come President’s Day.
