Broadway Grosses w/e 12/23/2018: The Holiday Wind Up

The penultimate week of the year typically bears gifts and this year did not disappoint.  Despite many shows choosing to play seven performances this week (and nine in the following week), grosses inched up about $1M to a total of $41M.  The average paid ticket price for all shows was a healthy $134.

Expect next week’s gross to break more records as Broadway wraps up another banner year.

Happy holidays, everyone!
