Broadway Grosses* w/e 4/16/2017 – Easter brings eggs…filled with box office gold!

Greeting Gross Fans!

 If you’re a producer on a Broadway show, you are constantly looking at your “12 week out” report, which tells you how your shows are grossing next week, the week after, the week after that, all the way to 12 weeks out.
It’s one of the standard reports that all General Managers prepare for their clients.  It’s a quick forecast of strong and weak weeks in a show’s future.

For those with access to these reports, we’ve known this past week was going to be a good one.

But no one expected it to be this good.

19 of the 40 Broadway shows running did over $1mm.  That’s 47.5% for those without calculators.  That’s also amazing.

The shows that did the best were once again the family shows and shows that catered to international audiences with the usuals doing $2mm and $3mm, and Cats, Anatastsia and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory all doing well over $1mm.

It just can’t keep going up like this . . . expect a downturn turn this coming week as the spring break season comes to an end.

But boy oh boy did this bull market run a lot hotter than we thought, which makes me think we’re going to have one helluva summer.

The following are the Broadway grosses for the week ending April 16th, 2017:
