Broadway Grosses w/e 12/1/2019: The Whole “Breaking Records” Thing

Thanksgiving week gave a big goose to Broadway grosses. A 30% increase from the previous week resulted in a $41.6M box office haul. Most notably, Beetlejuice and Tina – The Tina Turner Musical broke house records at the Winter Garden and Lunt-Fontanne perhaps due to two energetic performances on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Most shows enjoyed large six-figure boosts week-over-week. Hamilton, Moulin Rouge!, and Hadestown each had average tickets over $200.
