Broadway Grosses w/e 7/01/2018: The Awkward Tweens.

This past week was another tweener as I call ’em in the grosses world; a week before a holiday week.
July 4th, which occurs in the week that we’re in as I type, is on a Wednesday, right smack dab in the middle of the week.  That means a whole bunch of New Yorkers got the heck out of Gotham last THURSDAY.  (Anyone notice that long weekends have gotten longer?)
And while, sure, tourists will come in for the Fourth, there is always a day or so of delay before they arrive at the border, while the locals have already packed up.  That creates a bit of a vacuum, which explains why sales were down over 5% from the week before.
We also saw Margaritaville play its last performance, and Iceman go gentle into the good night . . . and yet still, grosses were up over 13% from last year.
We’re off to a good grossin’ start this year, which means we could be set for another record breakin’ season.
If Broadway was an index fund, I’d buy it.
