Broadway Grosses w/e 10/27/2019: Ticket sales are getting spooky heading into Halloween

Last week’s overall grosses slipped just slightly more than 1% to $34M while attendance dipped 3% to 278k. 

After five years on Broadway, Beautiful played its final performance to SRO crowds and had its best box office week since the 2014 holidays. Carole King looks to pass her baton to Tina Turner as the show based on her life plays to sold out houses at the Lunt-Fontanne.

David Byrne’s American Utopia had a nearly $300k jump over last week bringing in $910k for only six performances. It’s now on sale through February 2020.
