Broadway Grosses* w/e 5/28/2017 – Off to a Strong Start.

Hey, Gross Fans!

Happy first week of the 2017-2018 Grosses…boy do those numbers look good. We’re up across the board.

 

We can thank the graduation trips and all the tourists coming in for Memorial Day for our jump. Fifteen (!) shows this week grossed over $1MM.

 

Remember when $1MM was a lot?  The $1MM club is now the $2MM club.  Kind of like how 40 is the new 30 (says the 44-year-old).

 

The summer could be a super strong one since it feels like most of the shows are going to stick it out through the tourist season regardless of what happens on Tony Sunday.

 

But the only thing for sure on Broadway is that as soon as you think you’ve got it figured out, it changes.

 

 

The following are the Broadway grosses for the week ending May 28st, 2017:

    Yes, money, money, money, but the playwright must keep their eye on the quality of the play, hoping to make it both entertaining and cunningly a little bit more– e.g. Doll’s House Part 2.
