Broadway Grosses w/e 11/11/2018: The Play’s The Thing!

Box office grosses jumped 13% this week to $37M due to several shows adding previews and the introduction of the Bryan Cranston led, Network, which began previews at the Belasco and played to sold-out houses for two previews this week.

Meanwhile, two other plays, The Ferryman and The Lifespan of a Fact, are in the million dollar club or are close to it.

Most shows posted significant increases this week, bringing welcome relief from what seemed like a longer than usual slow fall sales period. As the season revs up and the Holidays approach, everyone will be competing for the influx of tourists.
