Broadway Grosses w/e 7/29/2018: Bye Bye, July!

Hello, readers! My name is Ryan and I run the general management operations at DTE Management here under the Davenport umbrella (more about that here). Like all general managers, I live and die by the numbers, so I wait with anticipation every week to see how my shows compare to “the street.” I’ll be taking a crack at briefing you all on the Broadway grosses for the next few weeks.

The end of July typically marks the peak of summer tourist traffic. Long-runners The Lion King and Wicked both added a 9th performance, which helped push the total gross for all shows to $39,633,285. A six percent increase over last week’s $36M.

Mean Girls broke the house record at the August Wilson for the 5th time, topping out at $1,593,340.

Houses were filled to 95% of capacity last week, and with theatregoers paying an average $134.04, will we see more shows adding a 9th performance this week next year?

While Bruce Springsteen is headed away from Broadway for his summer getaway through August 8th, we’re happy to be hosting many tourists for their vacation here on Broadway!
