Last week grosses dipped by 6% coming in at $26M. Nearly all shows experienced slight losses over the previous week as we reach deeper into winter. Attendance and average ticket price fell by 2% and 4% respectively. 

MTC’s My Name Is Lucy Barton seems to be drawing quite a crowd. At $122, the average ticket price at the intimate Samuel J. Freidman is the highest of any play currently running.

Broadway Grosses w/e 01/12/2020: Broadway still in hibernation

While the weather was trying to tell us otherwise last weekend, it’s certainly still January on Broadway. Grosses fell a steep 28% last week to $31M. 

Much of the drop was a result of several shows closing last week. But with 19 shows dropping six figures off their weekly gross, the rest of the winter looks grim. When’s spring break again?
