Broadway Grosses w/e 9/23/2018: The September Slip

With two fewer shows on the boards this week, grosses continued to slip to a seasonal low of $26M, a drop of 8.5% from the previous week. Harry Potter even felt a dip, though this was due to the show’s producers donating 1,500 tickets to Lumos, a charitable organization. The Lifespan of a Fact pulled in a solid showing for its first four performances with an average ticket price of $130 playing to 91.4% of capacity.
