Broadway Grosses w/e 7/15/2018: The Heat Is On.

Sidewalks and box offices all over the city are steamin’ as we roll into some of the biggest weeks of the year.

What I love about July is not just the higher grosses that shows post, but the consistency week over week of strong numbers.

We have better single weeks over the course of the year, but I don’t know another time in our business cycle that produces the string of solid numbers that July gives us.

What is it about July?

Tourists.

Just walk through Times Square and you can see why shows are doing what they’re doing.

But the real figure that’s amazing to me is that we’re already 15% up over last year’s record-grossing year.

While we’ll miss the big numbers of Angels in America (it closed on Sunday), all signs are pointing to Broadway continuing this incredible growth spurt it has been in for the last several years.

Here are the grosses from w/e 7/15/18.
