Broadway Grosses w/e 12/9/2018: Holiday Shoppers Choose Broadway

Broadway was back to business last week with the hustle and bustle we’ve grown accustomed to for December. Overall grosses jumped 6% this week topping $40M. With 38 productions on the boards, it’s as jam-packed as we’ve seen in several years.

The Cher Show and Network are both SRO* following their opening nights, while To Kill A Mocking Bird continues to pull in equally strong audiences for their previews.

Broadway Grosses w/e 12/2/2018: Grosses Temper After Holiday Heat

It was back to reality this week coming off a record-breaking Thanksgiving week. Total grosses fell to $38M, down 12% from the previous week.

Although total attendance was unchanged this week, the average paid ticket dropped by $18 following a week where premium prices were high and discounts scarce.

Broadway Grosses w/e 11/25/2018: No Pardon Needed for Turkeys on Broadway

Box Office Grosses jumped a whopping 18% this week thanks to an influx of audiences enjoying time off for the Thanksgiving holiday and shelling out at an average of $144 per ticket!

Several house records were announced today including the Lyric, Belasco, and St. James (to name a few).

Although the street was up in a record-breaking way, the cream wasn’t spread so evenly. We continue to see just a handful of shows pushing the metrics like grosses and ATP to the rafters.

Broadway Grosses w/e 11/18/2018: Early Snow Brings Flurries to Broadway

Box Office Grosses slipped slightly to $36.5M this week. Some softening might be due to the surprise winter weather last Friday which had most of Manhattan and surrounding areas in grid-lock from 4pm on.

Very strong previews continue for Network, To Kill A Mocking Bird, and The Cher Show, with each show grossing near or above $1M.

Grosses for the season continue to outpace last year’s record numbers, but as we’ve seen in the past, attendance isn’t quite as accelerated. It means that audiences are continuing to pay higher and higher prices for shows. No doubt, this trend will set the stage for another banner holiday season on Broadway.

Broadway Grosses w/e 11/11/2018: The Play’s The Thing!

Box office grosses jumped 13% this week to $37M due to several shows adding previews and the introduction of the Bryan Cranston led, Network, which began previews at the Belasco and played to sold-out houses for two previews this week.

Meanwhile, two other plays, The Ferryman and The Lifespan of a Fact, are in the million dollar club or are close to it.

Most shows posted significant increases this week, bringing welcome relief from what seemed like a longer than usual slow fall sales period. As the season revs up and the Holidays approach, everyone will be competing for the influx of tourists.
