Broadway Grosses w/e 11/24/2019: Plenty to be Thankful For

Last week, grosses were down just slightly with a 2% dip. Family favorites fared best last week with Wicked, The Lion King, and Frozen showing the biggest increases. Coming off recent openings, both Tina – The Tina Turner Musical and The Inheritance showed six-figure increases.

Thanksgiving week usually brings large audiences willing to pay premium prices for shows, but this season is tracking nearly two weeks behind (down about $70M). Will that affect the peak week as well?
