Broadway Grosses w/e 2/10/2019: A Slight Uptick in Grosses Sets the Stage for the Spring Season

Grosses this week were up by about 4% and attendance was just slightly higher improving by 5%. Overall, most shows posted increases. The biggest jumps came from Phantom of the Opera, Kinky Bootsand Beautiful.

As the industry preps for several new plays and musicals to open this spring, we received word last week that Anastasia will play its final performance on March 31. It won’t be in time for something to open this season, but I would expect an announcement soon from the next tenant.
